Software Upgrade

Prior to some interesting new features here on Litopia, we'll be doing a significant software upgrade in a few hours.

This will:
  • Take the Colony offline for a time;
  • Result in a different-looking Colony when we're back online.
You can follow progress on Litopia's Twitter feed and Facebook page.

Basic upgrade has been completed, and the Colony is open again. However, some functionality will not be restored for a few hours, e.g. The Mash / Writing Groups.

Enjoying the clean lines of the new look @AgentPete , but there are things to note:
- Is the inability to click-highlight on words/paragraphs deliberate? An anti-C&P device to protect work? I can see why you would do that (sort of) but it makes life just that much more difficult when replying and quoting. EDIT: I've just realised! Its not that you cannot select by clicking, its that selection highlight is white, like the background, so you cannot see it. That is definitely a fault.
- The new site does not display well on windows based instances of Chrome (Not that I personally care, but you should be aware as that is the most popular browser/OS combo in the world). The fonts used are all out of whack and their AA is broken. Assuming its a font scaling issue for mobile, which is something Windows never handles gracefully. Obviously its fine on MacOS/Safari.

Just an FYI!

An additional report: when I turn on italics, I can never turn them off again in that post. Neither the shortcut nor the command bar work.
EDIT: Apologies. Forgot to give details. Bad Howard! This is on MacOS with Safari. Not tried it on Chrome/Windows yet.

Howard, this is now fixed, pls confirm.

Can't duplicate that on my setup, W10 + Chrome. Can you first flush anything that might be a hangover from the previous site CSS etc, and then try again?
