New Look And Feel For IS
« on: Oct 02, 2017, 01:07 PM »
Iceshanty has a slight makeover for 2017-18 ice fishing.  ;D Some things have moved around but all should operate the same. Biggest change you will notice is on a mobile device you should enjoy a much improved browsing experience and I plan to make it even better.

What's new,

Most small screen devices held vertical will display a trimmed down mobile view and when held horizontal a nearly full desktop view.
Large pictures posted now should resize or clip to fit any device and not break the page. Do not use width= in the img tags anymore please.
Thanks to a tip from 3300, I have installed a photo upload plugin from postimage.com
You can link up or embed youtube videos or channels in a post.
Iceshanty is now secure https://www.iceshanty.com
You may need to update your bookmarks for the following pages.
Home page url changed to
https://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/index.php
Board url changed to
https://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/index.php?action=forum

Those using pb for photo storage update those avatar and sig pictures.

If the new layout does not work for your setup or taste. You can switch back to the old one by going into your profile>look and layout>current theme>change> select iceshanty 3.0

Now all we need is some cold weather  :tipup:




What's cooler than being cool? Ice cold

looks like I lost my WU widget banner too ...just added it two days ago ...not sure its an update snafu..or a WU snafu. Although I don't have a smart phone its nice that it will be improved ...thinking more on ice photos this season as a result of the updated mobile site and the imgur button . ;)2

I think this may be a side effect of going secure (https) on the site. WU has not moved over to https yet and I'm guessing that's why insecure images will not show up here in profiles and such.

You know what they say about old folks not liking change!!!  ;) We'll get used to it as we look around and find where everything is. I'm glad we have increased security with the change!! I just went through a major change going from IE to Google Chrome, so if I did that, I can do this!!! Now to get me a smartphone!! It's on my list!!! I'm off to cruise the new site! ;D
My two favorite college football teams are Ohio State and whoever's playing Michigan!!!

Don't reel against the drag!!!

It took me a few seconds to find location of Log In but will get used to new lay out with time . I do like that it is now easier to access the Members List. Scott my thanks to you and all of the Ice Shanty Admin. staff for all the work keeping this web site up and running. Is it possible to bring back the spell check feature that used to be found before words Post and Preview when making a post?

Browser should have spell check built in. You may have to enable it.

mine noticed incorrectly spelled words...
looks like all the pics in the Montana pic thread are gonzo...photobucket of course as well as the imgur hosted pics...

BUT if you go to your post and, click MODIFY and make the hyper text transfer protocol SECURE your pictures will be visible!!!! IE...change the address of your pics from HTTP to HTTPS

I know it works for IMGUR hosted pics anyway...

I don't like it at all. I would personally appreciate an option to exit mobile view if at all possible so people like myself can still enjoy the forum and others can adapt to the new format.

Depending on the screen size, holding phone vertical the board will have some menu limitations, holding device horizontal should reveal full menu controls and have a near desktop look.

Scott thank you for the reply, I have not seen the Spell check feature since the recent server update/upgrade. The Problem is probably my computer running an out date version of Windows with all the problems folks have installing each new version I just keep running the version that came installed on the computer still serves the majority of what I use a computer for in my life.
