Stardot logo fixed and now spud and banana free!

Post by kieranhj » Thu Feb 15, 2018 2:46 pm

Looks like the Stardot logo disappeared with the latest forum software update - just get the boring phpBB logo now. Time to ask Dethmunk for a new community logo maybe?! :D

Oooh, you're right. Hmm... I really hate getting under the hood of this thing. It's blinkin' scary. Roland?! :D

A minor point, but in the "compact" view of the forum that I get when I view it in portrait orientation on my phone, there aren't any text labels next to the Notifications and Messages icons, and the icons themselves (the bell and the envelope) aren't clickable, so I have to turn the phone 90° to landscape mode before I can see the labels and then click them.

Not a big deal, but I didn't have to do that before the recent forum software update.

It mostly is still storing and displaying messages. Currently I consider that a win :) :D

Lardo Boffin has reported a similar problem.

It does not effect larger screen devices like a iPad mini.

If I turn my iPhone on its side (landscape mode) the text appears and I can click on the message icon! Problem solved. :D

Hey Daniel - if you don't like my Stardot logo, just say so, don't make excuses [-X

We can always change to my second design..... :D

I'm hoping to get printed Stardot tablecloths produced soon for shows (which have already been mocked up) so definitely not in favour of changing Martin's [fabulous] original logo!!

If I view on Chrome I see the StarDot logo, but on Firefox I see the phpbb logo.

As I regularly use Chrome it might have the StarDot logo cached I guess ... ?!

I'm seeing the Stardot logo on an ipad with Safari but the pppBB logo with Chrome under Windows 10 - I've scrubbed the computer clean of all cached data but I can't get the logo back.... :?

I should be able to but I think the suitable quality images are on a previous computer which I have, but will need to dig out and dust off - might be a bit later then or even tomorrow. If Dave J is looking in, he also has copies because he did all the technical magic to sharpen it up.

OK - I think I found/fixed it. I can't get hold of Roland. If you do a shift-refresh it should reload everything?

I see what that is, the new BBC weather forecast. It's certainly taters out there...

Actually on second thoughts, that spud will look great on the tablecloths ... tempted to suggest we stick with it?!

Maybe we should switch emulators to one that matches the new logo?
Like this emulator...

Don't know if you still need it, but attached the one my Firefox has cached (I'm still seeing the correct logo in FF.)
