NAS Forum - Brand update and maintenance.

Brand update and maintenance, 26 September - more details

..."more Details" links to information saying:

Brand and site maintenance - 26 September 2018
Owing to planned maintenance, this site will be unavailable overnight on 26 September, including the early hours of 27 September. We are doing two pieces of work:

Refreshing the design to reflect the National Autistic Society's new brand.
Updating the software to a new version. The main benefit to this should be improvements to the listing of messages in threads, and the flagging of new messages. We want to implement this in order to help with problems that users have reported

...The words "new brand" link to a (small) Page, here:
www.autism.org.uk/.../2018-09-13-changing.aspx

... いま, From myself: I begin this Thread because that is one of the things which I myself used to be most useful for, upon this Forum... But Now things are different and so I Post less (!). Also, However, not everyone notices the Main NAS message, and, also, WebPM says that "As ever, your feedback after the update is welcome." upon the following Thread:

community.autism.org.uk/.../82297

...Lastly from me, this next Link is actually the latest Thread for Posting "Strange" Things... but not many people remembered it...

community.autism.org.uk/.../

...That Thread contains many Links to other Threads which are for specific problems (Older Errors, Notifications, Ideas, Spam, Copybots, etc.).

In closing: All in all, Thanks NAS - especially Mr.WebPM. And Good Luck to all.

    ...Greetings to All! Even if I can post nothing else tonight, then I post that - as often, in case persons AUTOMATICALLY logged-on did not see it. This is on the the Main Page, but only shows if not logged on...

    NAS - You see this, in future, put important stuff like that on Main pages Please, whether anyone is logged in or not - this has happened before - right up there at the start of this Thread. 

    (...I have to sign off, now, I knew it...Darn... Good Fortune, anyone anyway.)

    (...I have chance to Post just now, now...)

    ...Greetings all; I am on mostly at nights, not during the day, and so I am asking - Did this actually happen? Any improvements or anything?

    The only one I see so far is the "COOKIE" Message. If WebPM answers this post, please say how these buttons work. The buttons shift from Yes to No, and the buttons either SHOW Yes or No, and I am asking how this works: Is it where the button is shifted to, or what the Button SHOWS which applies?

    E.g. - Personalisation : YES / NO

    The button covers up the word YES  and shows the word NO.

    Does this mean Yes or No is selected?

    ...Yes, this may seem like a stupid question... but there are countless sites out there which use things like this to trick people. I would Post pictures, but surely I need not do so?

    Thanks anyway, Mr.WebPM...
