    Dear friends :wave:

    Over the coming days, we'll be upgrading the forums to a newer version. The old version is starting to look a bit dated and support will soon cease for it.

    The new version should have some nice new features including much better support for phones, ipads etc. :D

    What does this mean to you? Well, the forums may well be unavailable at certain times for a while whilst we do the upgrade. Don't worry if you catch us mid-upgrade, we'll be back soon :D

    When we are finally upgraded, your login and passwords should all be the same but you may find that your web browser asks you to re-enter your password. If you can't get in after requesting a new password from the link, please email admin@wdisneysecrets.com and we'll help get you back !

    The forums may well look a bit plain or lacking in features when we arrive with the new version. Don't worry! We wanted to get you the new version as soon as we could but we'll be putting up the new wallpaper and painting as we go :D

    As always, thanks for making us your choice for Disney info and chat :) xx

    Arrrggghhh...

    My signature pictures from my gallery went bananas! :mental:

    For anyone else with a similar problem, you "may" have to redo the URL's to the pictures in your signature.

    Good job Keith! Especially for a guy who's on vacation! :unsure:

    Tom :)macwave:... now, where'd I put that "Q" key?)

    Hey Keith.

    How come there's so much blank space in any given post. Between the actual words and the horizontal line the delimits the signature block. For instance, look at this post by Mick. Note how much white space there is. Seems to be this way with all of them. Makes it more difficult when scrolling through a thread where everyone has just a single sentence response.

    Don't know if that's configurable or not. The message preview when you're creating a post (advanced) doesn't do that. It's much more reasonable.

    Just thought I'd point that out.

    Tom :)macwave:.... just a minor annoyance.)

    Just keep your fingers crossed that the giggling pin doesn`t fall off the laughing sprocket or we will be in real trouble. :lol:

    Thinks like Josh's pretty headers (spring, Christmas, summer etc). Also am I right in thinking the background to the actual page had a design that changed depending on the season? I'm thinking snowflakes at christmas, flowers in summer and that sort of thing. The pages used to look so much brighter as I remember them. Of course I could be getting completely confused! :lol:
