We're pleased to say that the new Site.org mobile pages have now gone live :yippe:
Do take a look (preferably using your phone) via this link: http://m.thesite.org, or click the mobile link in the top right of the header:

What this forum's for...
This is a place where you can discuss any issues with getting TheSite to work, any issues with logins or questions about the services on the main website.
This is also a place to make suggestion for improvements to the website. For example, people have used this as a space to suggest changes or additions to content on the main website, new sub forums and boards...
Hey there :wave:
So you may have noticed that we've been a little quiet recently regarding all the issues you reported after we upgraded the discussion boards.
We've been busy making sure that everything was logged and prioritising what needs fixing. We'd like to keep you all in the loop and be as transparent as possible about where we're at so we've created a Google spreadsheet that's...
Many thanks to Wildchild and the other long ago members who helped put together this userguide.

Hey Guys (people who are reading this)
I have been talking in chat alot recently and a couple of times The expansion of chat has come up, like chat being everyday and maybe start 7 instead of 8. Heres my opinion.
It would be great if chat could be Open everyday and i would strongly love it to be it would help so much.Chat is a great way to distract yourself and to find out good answers to...
I can't connect to chat for some reason...
I've no firewall
I've no anti-virus
Java is up to date...
Everything else works? ;s
just comes up saying connection failed.
"Ghost pages" is what I call it when in a thread there seems to be a page number that takes you to the previous page when you click on it.
I've been noticing a lot of these in some threads lately, particularly the "good things" thread. Ghost pages are commonly a result of posts getting deleted, but the frequency it seems to happen lately (I think I've seen it happen 3-4 times in the last two...
Not sure if I post this here, but I see TheSite has a page on this already, but it's aimed only at women because of the vaccinations with cervical cancer. But I'm wondering if the site could update, or add a new page, to highlight the information for when it relates to oral sex and men?
I watched the documentary on it a few weeks ago, (can see here too) and it highlights the risks of...
Just something I've noticed that's beginning to annoy me slightly: when viewing TheSite at work, I can't see when the posts in threads were posted (as in top left of this post you will see the date and time; I can't see that). Any ideas what's wrong? I've tried logging in, changing theme etc and all the same :s
Curiously, it is fine with firefox at home...
I have also just...
Couple of things I thought about here, is it possible to have a report user function somehow, if we spot a user profile which is a spam account, ie with spam links or text in profile? Or is it just worth copying the username/link and sending a PM?
Also I have noticed (in opera) that no matter what colour scheme you have the boards set on, when you view a users profile, it always looks red?
Correct me if we have never been able to do this in the past, but I swear we used to be able to do strikethrough text on the message boards. If I'm wrong I'm very sorry, but I'd like to ask if it would be easy/possible to introduce this to the boards.
Ps if we can do this already, how.
A couple of suggestions for the various TheSite chat's that go on...
1. MOST important to me, and EASIEST to do:
- Post a facebook status on TheSites facebook 15 mins before chat starts.
2. Require forum login for the chat, impersonation not frequent but can happen. Only if name is already taken on the forums, if not no registration required or forum login.
3. Switch to IRC? I wish to...
I'd like to delete my account, how do I go about it please?
Is anybody else having trouble getting on chat tonight ? I cant get on it.. The page is grey and wont let me type anything.. But its logged me onto chat i cant see anything though.
I've just been doing the Just Love Safe sex survey with my friend who is a lesbian and all the options are really straight. I know you put at the beginning your sexuality but then following on from there was hard - e.g. it says what method of contraception did you use when you lost your virginity but "none - we're both girls" isn't an option.
Also she said that the box you put...
When I've typed out a post in the quick reply box, I click on "post quick reply" and it takes me to the advanced post bit, and I have to re-type my message. Any idea how to solve it?
There's a tick box when you log in called "remember me". Despite clicking this, I sometimes get logged out - why?
I tried to log in from my mobile (an android phone) but when in the mobile style, clicking on "Log in" either does nothing or reloads the main page.
I cleared all cache and cookies and it didn't do anything. But for some reason, when I went to the forum after that it defaulted to the "normal" and not the mobile style, so I guess it can't detect my phone for a reason. Even though it did at first.
So... the time has finally come for out with the old and in with the new! After 24 hours of exporting, downloading, indexing, testing and general techy stuff (including last minute panics) the upgrade is now complete and we're really pleased with how it looks.
You'll notice a few things have moved around and the general look and feel of the place is, we think, a lot more up to date and a...
are there still a lot of bugs to work out with this new version of the boards? i know its only been a bit more than two weeks or something since you introduced it but its putting me off using thesite! its just little stupid things really, i dont know if its just me having problems with it -
- when you search a users posts its only coming up with the ones they've posted in the last couple of...
Okay, so when I came onto thesite today everything was normal size apart from some of the text like the sections (eg waste time, relationship) and what threads and latest posters, which was tiny!
I have no idea why, and when I scroll to make it bigger everything else grows as well making it, quite frankly, ugly (but only at this time)! I'm curious as to whether anyone else has got this problem...
Hi guys, total idiot of a question,
I logged on with my mobile and got the mobile theme, fantastic, I then hit the full theme at the bottom of the board and it went back to the full theme but I cannot change it back without deleting my cookies, is there a way to change back to mobile without deleting the cookies on my phone
Where it lists what is the most recent post in a forum area, and who it is "by", there is no space between "by" and the username
This might only be because I use IE6, but worth checking.
The tabs at the top of the boards 'What's New?' and whatever is next to it that takes you to the index page, come out as all over black when you have them highlighted.
Now we have lots of chat, and lots of chat tonight threads, could the thread title be tweaked slightly to be Chat Tonight (Day) X-Y pm?
It's a bit confusing sometimes when there are still chat threads reasonably high in the new posts lists and it's the next day.
Hello Modskis :)
Obviously a few people are having a problem with people posting triggering content in Anything Goes, in particular in the ranty thread.
On a forum a friend of mine posts on, they have a 'spoiler' function, which works a bit like an lj-cut where you click the link/button/whatever to reveal the rest of the post.
Is that kind of thing possible on vBulletin?
See the attached photo.
Since you're planning an upgrade to the forums anyway, this might either be solved in the new version or fixing it now might be pointless, but I thought I'd say it anyway.
And in any case, the circumstances for it happening are rare and it's not a big problem.
If you didn't notice it, the bug is that the thread's title which contains a quote appears with half the HTML...
The amount of spam on the boards at the minute is absolutely ridiculous, I feel like I am reporting 5-10 posts a day for spam content. Is there nothing that the mods can do about this, because it is seriously starting to affect my enjoyment of the site.
What sort of anti-spam software do you have in place? On another board I admin we put limited posting rights in for people until they've...
