    Default OrchidTalk Forum Closing for Updates

    We have to close the forum for a few hours tonight to do some updates to the software. If all goes well, we will be back on-line within a few hours.

    Thanks for your patience as we improve our community with new features.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Ok, we are back up and running. If you view your profile, you will see some changes. I have not finished the updates yet, but the ones that require the forum to be closed are now complete. Music in the profile is not working yet, so if you have an MP3 file, it will not play until I create some modules for them. We have had private messages, now we will try out public messages within the profile. For now this is enabled for everyone who has posted 5 or more messages. There may be some permission issues for me to work out still, but as far as I can tell it is working.

    Also, our OrchidTalk Subscribers now have the option to edit their profile page, changing the color, fonts, etc.. We will also soon have a Gallery for Subscription holders at all three levels as a way of saying thanks for the support. The gallery update is coming, but the profile editing is available now. Have fun.

    Cheers,
    BD
