Minor niggle. The favicon for the mobile version differs from the full fat version, causing the bookmark on the desktop browser to keep changing icon to some generic IPB one after a sync.

I'll investigate this. I'm not sure where that setting is, but if I can find it, I'll change it.

 

Even though I tick 'remember me' the site tends to log me out more frequently now, has the setting changed? Thanks.

 

I haven't experienced this personally - is anyone else noticing the same?

Is there any way to  'go to'  the last posting or bottom of page in any topic, even if read ?  aside from scrolling.. 

 

And/or is there any good reason why the pages are so long ?

 

Thanks, Bfg.

The pages are so long because Dave made them so.

When I first joined up 10 years ago, I'm sure they were 15 posts long. Then it was 20, then 25, now 30.

 

It can be a problem for me in Rural Backwatershire, especially if there are lots of pictures etc.

Hello Darlinks!

 

 

I can attach a picture.jpeg to a post via the "more reply onions"  button  but how may I attach a video?  Will you only accept curtain  video format file extensions?

 

 

Thanking you very many.

 

Vlad the Impala.

Hello, daft question, I have had the message asking me if I wanted to update my email address. I did as BT have deleted my old one. I tried to do it, had a few problems as I forgot my password, but it won't accept my new email account saying it is already in use. What am I doing wrong?

In my AS beginnings, I seem to remember that I when attempting to post pictures directly to the site there was a limit of about three at a time or summat (it might just have been my computery klutziness though). I subsequently used Photobucket for everything but it really causes my balls to ache and I'm on my fifth account having filled four already with AS pics. My question is; can I now post pics direct with impunity now? I don't want to clog up the server or whatever unnecessarily with another 30 pages of spots and rubbish. Will they be stored permanently? Or more reliably permanently than Photobucket?

Please bear in mind that I am idiot and don't really understand servers and computerising and all that shizz.

I think we've always had a blank calendar. Members can put events in there if they want. Might be worth promoting doing that for AS events and/or events that members think are worth of mention?

Mercrocker - could you check the version of Chrome you are running and let us know? Possibly a bit drastic but are you able to uninstall and reinstall chrome?

 

Does the issue happen on Firefox or IE/Edge?

I cannot get any functionality in Autoshite when on Chrome.   Fine on IE.  I have cleared my browser cache but still cannot access the top right hand toolbar or indeed make any posts!

I only use Chrome and all fine here.

Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)[/size]

 

Sorry no help here.

Works fine here on Chromium Version 59.0.3071.104 (openSUSE Build) (64-bit)

      Hi all,
      Apologies for the downtime, there was some routing issues with our hosting provider which meant the server was cut off from the outside world. I'm finding out what went wrong and how we can avoid a repeat.

      Welcome one and all to the new home of average transport.
      Most of the forum will work exactly how you expect it to, but there's a few differences which will hopefully make your life easier. We'll add to this first post as other things become apparent or we find new options, seriously it's like getting out of a Fiesta Bonus and into a Sierra Ghia with all these new buttons.
       
      Reading posts
      You can hover over a thread title to see a pop-up and choose either first post, or latest post to quickly preview it without clicking into it As before, you can click the star or circle to the left of a thread title (star is if you've participated, circle for threads you've only read) to go straight to the unread post  
      Composing posts
      If you want to only quote a few words from someone else's post, just highlight the words with your cursor in their post and you'll get a "Quote" popup rather than having to quote the whole lot and delete the extra test (Thanks Stanky!) Tags and Prefixes are somewhat different to the old version! A "Prefix" is what appears at the start of the topic title on the forum, and tags appear at the end You start by entering one or more tags. Seperate them by just pressing enter to finish that tag and start a new one. You can then optionally choose one of them to be the prefix by selecting it in the drop-down Default behaviour seems to be that it will automatically select the first tag as  the prefix, so it appears twice. Looks crap but it's a "feature" for now. Deselect it if you want....  
      Image linking and embedding
      You now don't need [ img ] tags around pictures from elsewhere on the web. Simply paste an address that ends in .jpg or .png etc and it will automatically embed it If the image address doesn't end in .jpg or .png try clicking the "Insert other media" button below the text entry field and paste the address in there. When using the file uploader to embed your own photos from your computer, you can just drag them onto the bar below the text entry area. Once you've done that you can click the plus icon on the photo to embed it anywhere in the post (put your cursor where you want it to go first) If you've already used an image somewhere, it doesn't need to be reuploaded. Click "insert other media" and choose "existing attachment" to browse all the images you've ever uploaded. If you don't want the image embedded inline, you can press ctrl-Z to undo (or use the link that appears at the bottom of the compose window saying "use link instead" for a few seconds after it embeds) and it will go back to the old behaviour with just the address of the image  
      Searching
      To find your own content, instead of “My Content” you can use “Search My Activity” which is at the top right of the forum. It’s sort of notifications and all sorts rolled into one but there’s Posts and Topics as sections in the left hand menu Tags and prefixes are clickable to search for other similar content. If you click on Activity on the main menu, there's a detailed search for your own content, member lists (separate tab) etc.  
      Signatures, Display Name, Email address
      Click your username at the top right corner, and select "Account Settings" Edit your signature, display name or email address there. You can also turn off seeing other people's signatures Note signatures don't display on mobile devices to avoid taking up too much room  
      Reactions
      The "like" button is gone, and Reactions are here instead. You've got like, thanks, sad and confused.  No, you can't like your own posts  
      Notifications
      The forum seems to default to "Follow topics I reply to" which is the same as Old Autoshite, however.... The default behaviour is also to email you notifications. Oh no! That's a lot of emails..... Click the Notification Bell at the top right, and choose Notification settings. The four options for notification frequency let you summarise things into one email. The top option doesn't specifically say "emails" as the type of notification can be controlled in the next step. Scroll down and you can toggle emails or notifications for each of the different events (like someone replying to a topic you've followed etc).  You can also turn the notification sound off in that screen if you're thinking of perving over Austin Allegro Equipes (yeah, that picture) at 3am in bed.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
       
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.
       

       
      Anyone played with them?
       
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
       
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.
       
      Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.
       
      But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.
       
      He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.
       
      What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.
       
      Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.
       
      Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.
