You have to submit what funboxes you want to see. remember?



The bug I found: selecting different top 10 options in the movie funbox...nothing shows up. It only works for 10 newest for me.


Anyways, this website is totally awesome. Very nicely done malone.

"Need some coolio text about how you can upgrade for free. Need to state that all users that purchsed AlamDV2 after whatever that date was will get the upgrade free - older users will have to pay £19.99"

Might wanna add that coolio text now

Whoo hoooo! It's finally arrived! Although no announcement has been made yet. I feel like I'm breaking into school after hours smile Here's some errors I've noticed - I'll keep updating as I bug hunt. (Windows XP, IE 6)


When I go to make a post, going over Emoticons/BBCode puts the box up in the top left hand corner of my screen and if I move to go select one they disappear. Perhaps I'm just doing something wrong.



http://fxhome.com/users/user_management/product_registration/productreg.php

A couple here -

"Firstly it garentees you will receive our top level support on our website and chatrooms"

Should be guarantees

"This may include access to restricted information, program upgrades, plugins, and other items researved for our special website members"

Should be reserved



http://fxhome.com/users/user_management/personal/personal.php

When I fill out the date it is day/month/year shouldn't it be month/day/year?




http://fxhome.com/users/profile_cache/profile2921.html

PM Icon is borked.




After I make a post, it doesn't seem to automatically forward me to my post again like in the previous forums. Perhaps that is intended, but it is quite annoying ATM. tard



Videos are weirdly ranked in your profile. For example, if I go to the Powercorps page, it says it's ranked #3 on my list. If I click on my profile at the bottom of my posts, it says it's ranked #10. Horsey Hijack is ranked #1 on its page, but #4 on my profile crazy



Cinema views/downloads/votes don't seem to be showing up. I get errors when I try to arrange a movie into my Top 10 List also. (Only from the movie page. I can arrange them fine in the User Options. But even then after arranging them in User Options, and it showing up when I refresh, my list doesn't change in my profile.)





http://fxhome.com/users/user_management/avatar/avatar.php

You already have a username that is entirely unique to our community. However, with thousands of people registered at FXhome.com it can be difficult to stand out and get recognised. This is why your avatar is useful.

An avatar is a small image that is linked with your account, helping people recognise who you are.

-Should be changed to recogniZe



http://fxhome.com/users/user_management/custom_funboxes/customfunboxes.php

You can come back here and edit your selection as many times as you want, so dont be afraid to experiment.

-Should be don’t




http://fxhome.com/users/user_management/forum_watch/forumwatch.php

You can come back here and edit your selection as many times as you want, so dont be afraid to experiment.

-Should be didn’t



Under my User Options I don't have ICQ/MSN/AIM/etc listed, but the buttons still appear under my name. Anyway to change that so I can get rid of some?



More of a question - The posts from FXHome aren't appearing in the mIRC chat channel #alamdvticker. Will there be a new channel that we have to go in?


Forums don't show who's active and viewing the forums anymore. Intended/Bug/Or just not implemented yet ?


Banner tags don't seem to work anymore (Images). I had a bunch of weird numbers in my [img] and [/img] tags that I got rid of and now the banner won't work.


Voting options (Force points and what not) are also not implemented yet. (Probably not a bug, but you never know. Sometimes the most obvious of things are the first ones to come up short smile)

Hi again!

JohnCarter here.

I can't seem to stay logged in and I can't make a move anywhere without being constantly asked for user ID and password. Also can't login into my private messages at all.

Any help possible?

Thanks.

For the drop boxes, you need to to click on the text specifically, even though the whole box becomes highlighted - -

And for the top 10 you need to be able to click on the actual thumbnails of the movies to get info, because you can't right now

[User details] The MSN Messenger box displays the AIM handle instead
[General site links] There are no links back to the forums when you are in User Options etc. Although strictly not a problem, its annoying.

EDIT: Theres no descernable Force system (Lightsaber's are still functional though). EG: No post rating slots.

In chat, all of the messages disappear when I click on any other page or any other link. The only way they come back is if there's enough to fill the page and I can scroll up and then down and then they come back...

Also, I can't vote on movies. Nothing happens when I click on the circles...

Usergroup options are also not up. I think the force and other things of thise nature are just on the sidelines, and should be implemented soon, not really "forgotten".

Not necessarily a bug, but when i click newest topics from my last visit, all the old topics still show up. The ones are there, but so are the old ones so it gets annoying cuz i gotta actually look at when posted etc.

That, and for some reason the chat doesn't load for me, but ill keep trying.

[EDIT: the top ten works now, i just wasn't working last night]

Ah, ok, thanks testy, you're right, it does mean popular posts on my profile. I'm confused by the fact that in the old site popular posts had this little animation by them, not a colour.

I'm experiencing another thing that may be a bug. When I click on a page number of a post it always takes me to the 1st page, and not the page I clicked on...this only seems to happen when I'm in a forum, when I'm in the topic it seems to work ok.
