Goodbye Tractorbox, I'm gone to the new site for good. I'll be able to refer back to this one when it's archived... It's been good, though!

I'm now only using the New Forum for new posts.

I can now edit posts made but there appears to be a limit of twice only then the option disappears. This would normally be OK but am still trying to figure out how to do few things. A Preview option would be to help here - I do miss that.

Still no option to delete a Post.

I still cannot get the Forum built-in Tool to insert Hyperlinks e.g to Dropbox. I can only do this by Cut & Pasting the URL into the Post. This then means the URL shows but not a sensible Title. What am I doing wrong?

Photos work well except as has been pointed out elsewhere, they don't display in the order they were uploaded.

Is the Photo Gallery coming later. I assume some facilities may come in due course. Great work so far though!!

KInd regards
Steve

The web team are aware of downtime issues. Please let me know via this topic if and when you experience this problem so I can pass details to the team.

For all paid up club members that have signed up via FREE trial, your trial membership will automatically be upgraded to paid, no need for you to do anything.

right Charlie post on oct17th the first 2 photos should be last
oct18  first second and third post all photos in reverse order
4th post pict 4 should be first
this is supposed to be a step by step build Charlie so they need to be in order and we should be able to put them in order ourselves and delete them when we post the wrong ones or put two the same on accidentally many thanks nigel.
 also i can not pm you on the new site cos it says i am not a payed up memberAngry

Hello all, I did manage to get on the new site,speaking as an ex club member but current forum member, could anyone tell me what happens when the 30 day trial runs out?
Do I get another trial or invite to join club again?
If I don't join the club, what happens then?
Is the club working toward club members only on forum?
I'm just seeking information please, I'm not criticising.
Regards, David.

I'm thinking that the new site is far to hard to even get logged on to .I'm not impressed it tells me that my email address is already used ,I've forgot my password any thing but going to the next page it's a shame because I often liked a little look every now and again to see what the other members and fans of old equipment was up to . now I spend a hour trying to get on and end up as mad as . I did once get onto the new site by following instruction from people that had messaged this old site but by the time I was logged on I had to go out and now it's back to the same old tricks. Its a shame and I think you will end up loosing a lot of followers just because you seem to have rushed out this new web site

davidale, when the 30 day trial ends you will have the option to join the club and become a paid up member with full access to the website and forum, including back issues of The Cultivator. If you do not join you will no longer be able to post topics or replies, you will still be able to view as a guest. You will not be able to start a new 30 day trial. At 1 a month it is not a huge amount to pay for access to such a wealth of knowledge. The website is paid for by club members we do not have annoying advertising or any sponsorship so are completely independant.

bristolboy if you have managed to login OK once then there is no reason you can't log in again using the same id and password, unless you enter something incorrectly.
