When is the Xmas forum skin coming down? I've grown attached to it in the last couple of weeks. http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif

On 12th night I think I saw a few days ago. That's this Friday. I like it too, but then again I like the normal light blue background too.

At first I hated the Xmas skin, then after 5 minutes I liked it. Have now got used to it so much, I don't know if I can take a non-Xmas NW. Although it would be good for the mods if I didn't spam the board as much and start wholly inappropriate new topics. So clouds and silver and linings.

On a serious note, the new skin was nice, glad to hear there are going to be options in the future.

Paul, or any other mod who may be monitoring this - is the N-W Extra 15 minute radar down at the moment? Each time I try and access it all I get is white space. Now, while I'd love to think it indicates we are in for an imminent white-out across the country, I have a feeling it just means that the radar is out of action. :cold:

In case it is just my system, what I am getting is a small box in the top left with a red X and no radar image at all, no matter if I try the normal or precipitation options and whether I click on the static or animated buttons. When I click on the place names button it brings those up, but on a blank background. So I guess it means it isn't my system.

Over to you...

do you have norton installed?

if so go to the extra homepage and there's special instructions for a special program

HI Blackie - my guess is that you have norton internet security or personal firewall - in which case it's because of some extra security we have put on there.

If you go to the net-weather extra homepage there is a link there which gives instructions on what you need to do to be able to view it again, which will hopefully sort you out :cold:

Any more problems, or if you're not using norton, please let me know!

Thanks Paul, and Karl - sorted now http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif

And it has just started snowing, well a light shower of graupel. So I can track it once more on the radar :cold:

You need to save it to real webspace - it sounds like msn use some sort of a different system to store images. Just upload the chart to your post. :(

Hi Paul, thanks for replying. If it was a current chart I would and have done. Problem is, this is a saved chart (I've been following the 06z and comparing for trends) so it's on my hard drive. I think to need to find a more net-weather-friendly web picture host?

You can upload pictures to the forum from your hard drive - just click the browser button on the posting screen to locate the file, then click add this attachment, then add into post at the point you want it to go in. :(

Hi Paul,

I asked about this last week, but it's happening more regularly now. I'm using Firefox, and when I first come on to the site I normally just click on the view new posts button. This either dosen't work and I get the no new posts message or when I do get on I only get the new posts that have been put on in the last few minutes and I can't see anything beyond that. Any ideas?

Hello,

I was just wondering if there were any plans for different skins. I loved the Xmas one, obviously no good now but the red was very nice. Even just the current style with options of red, green etc. would be good.

Just a thought :)

Mark.

Yep, there are plans for that - the xmas skin will be back soon but without the xmas decs!

The only thing I can suggest is to try deleting your cookies - I'm using firefox and it's all fine for me.
