Chrome. It just seems to be that image host, too. Every other one works fine.

Your internet provider is blocking access to turboimg.net. That's where "turboimagehost.com" stores all their images. This explains why you can access turboimagehost.com but you can't see the images. The way around it, would be to use a proxy plugin. The most easiest, fastest, safest proxy switcher I could find for chrome is Hotspot Shield. Give it a try.

How to use:

We've opted in to remove our first-topic-only social buttons.  They are heavy loading and slow down the forum. We got our own custom built, lightweight, share buttons which reduces the number of HTTP Requests and speeds up load times. This move will benefit people on slower internet or less powerful devices.



At some point we'll futher improve them to be visible from the get go so no dropdown menu, it will look something like this:

Pagination improvements before/ after. It was driving me nuts trying to use our previous design on mobile devices.

Further pagination tweaks to better improve the design. Removed the left and right text and placed the arrows where they should be.

We're cleaning-up and removing some sub-boards.

- Removed "Forum Rules & Guidelines - Please Read First!" board. This has now been replaced with a nifty little message which will be present throughout our forum

- Removed "How-to" board.

- Banner changes and updating sub-board text will commence shorty.

- Admin was feeling naughty and gave the forum a face-lift.

Chrome users need to clear their browser cache. Otherwise they may see glitches.

We've listened and added #hashtags!
Reply #112 August 11, 2016, 01:25:25 AM
We've added the following #hash tags features for our forum:

- Tag Cloud  (which can be accessed from menu)
- Members can "Tagg" Topics (not individual posts)
- Members can add and remove tags to the topic (will be added soon).
- Clicking a tag returns a list of tagged topics that have that tag.
- Recent tagged topics on tag cloud page.

Screenies:



Note to members:
Tags are to be used responsibly, staff have the right to remove or modify any tag if they feel it's unsuitable for our site.

Why did we added a hashtag system to our forum?:
Members wanted an easier method to find what they were after. For example, some members wanted to find topics based on "outtie" trends; well... we've now made this possible. When a member tags a topic with outtie, and you click the tag, all topics tagged with that word will be returned to you in a nice list. It's a lot more efficient than using the forum search.

We feel this feature will add a much richer forum experience and members will love it.  :)

Well, I never use hashtags, but then again, I'm not on Twitter, so I'm not the target audience of that feature. But hey, if it attracts more members, let's add it.

Once it's all set-up on our forum properly, you'll digg them the most mate. It has nothing to do with twitter.  :P
