Autoshite Help

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm getting some threads taking me to 2015/16 entries when I click on the star at the lhs of the post

 

Have cleared cache and logged out/in but still getting the same. Almost as if it can't tell when I looked at the thread most recently.

 

For example the "stupid questtion amnesty" thread

 

Not a major issue but thought I best mention it:)

I think AT means the old homepage before someone, presumably Dave Not Dave got rid of it, replacing it with what we have now (albeit with more junk).

 

https://web.archive.org/web/20120503212749/http://autoshite.com/

 

As I've mentioned before but seems to have gone ignored, a link to the modern forum in the navigation bar up top would be nice, so you don't have to go back to the forum directory every time you want to access it. It's slightly isolated at the moment.

Got it in one. Thanks for the web archive link, too.

Bring back the front desk!

Still got issues seeing pics on my phone using Tapatalk app.

JPEG from flat4alfa show up no probs but those from eddyramrod don't. As they're the same type of file I'm confused!

Could it be how they're uploaded?

Anyone else with this issue or better still a fix for it?

This will be sorted out as part of the IPB 4.x overhaul project which is ongoing.

Hi all, how do insert pictures from my PC onto a thread without using a photo hosting site? Can i just insert them into a thread once they're saved to my PC?

 

Thanks

Probably a silly question but when I enter my user name and password to log in on autoshite.com I get a pop-up message saying "This connection is not secure. Login details entered here could be compromised". Is this normal and should I continue to ignore it, or is there a secure sign-in page?

SS and WW - is this on Chrome? Chrome is being a right twat about forcing every site under the sun to use an SSL certificate, otherwise they flash up these warnings.

 

Try it in IE and see if it does the same, this will rule out Chrome being a wanker.

 

We'll address it though.

Is there any reason why Chrome on my new phone keeps logging me off the forum every few minutes?

 

Clear your cookies, there is probably a corrupt one with your login for here.

Using Firefox normally which gives the security warning every time I log in, but tried logging in on both Chrome and Edge (no IE on W10) and neither of them prompt me about security so seems to be a problem on Firefox only.

Incidentally, after logging in on Chrome once it now logs me in again automatically every time I go to the site. Didn't ask me if I wanted it to save the login details. Don't know whether this is a setting that can be changed.

^ All modern browsers are going to start identifying sites as not secure when they aren't using TLS and they have any input fields.  Let's Encrypt away!

 

Edit: Firefox and Chrome will start doing it at different times depending on version, which is why there's a difference between the two.  At the moment it will be a small warning like this, but it will become a BIG RED WARNING next year IIRC.

This issue still persists, I'm fairly sure it must be how they're uploaded. Anyone any ideas ?

Get a let's encrypt certificate. Free and supported in all the modern browsers. The certificates only last for a short period (a good thing) and you need a little script running to auto update. Scripts are provided to automate it.

 

https://letsencrypt.org

 

It's supported and driven by all the major internet companies to start using secure network links to help increase security on the web.

Server/forum clock is wrong!

 

It's correct for me. Have you got your profile set correctly?

I seem to recall it's going when the forum is upgraded again as that'll need a new skin doing.

Can anybody do an HPi Trade check from Frame No for my Peugeot 103 Moped please?

 

 

Panhard65 is very kindly helping me with my Peugeot 103 moped. It seems drinking coffee has given him special powers that I do not have, like being able to notice that there has been a yellow number plate attached to it at some point and the speedo is in mph!

 

This points to it having been UK registered at some point and it would save me a lot of trouble if I could find the reg number from the frame number. Panhard65 thinks this is possible with a trade HPi account.

 

Cost will be covered, can anybody help me and do a Trade HPi check for me please?

      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.
