The upgrade is done.

There may be some little things broke or not available. Let us know and we will see if its necessary to get it working.

One major change is, users can now delete their own posts. However, if they opened the thread and other people have replied to it, it will only delete there post, but the thread will not get deleted.

Edit post reason does not work right now, we will try to bring that back.

mahmood bhai,
i think there is a bug in the other thread- the 'bar code' appears to be 'square'!

this is supposed to appear like this:
Razab's Net Hangout ( রজব কাশেম চোধুরীর্ ইন্টারনেট্ আড্ডা-খানা ) |My Songs ( আমার রচনাবলি )

but if you go to other thread it gives you a figure of square.

may be my computer got a bug?

Fine here too. I think he was refering to the unicode thingy. Incorrect encoding may end up showing characters as squares.

Sorry, You should have proper Bangla unicode fonts installed on your system to read that Bangla I guess. I can see it fine as well same as before.

So far i have noticed two features missing:

1. New posts feature.
2. Drop down forum switch.

The links to BanglaCricket forum from front page (which i believe filename is fan.gif) is not there. I think this is too obvious to be fixed.

However, is it possible to make the default theme to BanglaCricket DL for a new user? The default theme, though a patriotic one, is not attractive at best, ugly at worse. I think most of the user will like any other theme rather than the default one. I don't know, is there any technical problem to make this change? If there is not, please change it to BanglaCricket DL, BC-Green, Legend of Zelda whichever you most prefer.

but the question is why it appears fine in this thread and not in the other thread?

is there any other member have the same bugger?

Drop down forum lists and New Posts are excellent modifications made by our experts.

Right now our experts are focused on the security. They have been working very hard to upgrade the software and plug the potential holes. Once they are satisfied with the security, I'm sure, they will start to work on the custom scripts and hacks.

On behalf of the Banglacricket team I Thank you all for your patience, help, support and co-operation.

The spirits have been appeased and the spirits of BC pasts have gone on to their eternal rest.

Do let us know if you see some other paranormal activities here after the upgrade.

January 23, 2006, 09:25 AM
Just put the url for the Avatar in the "Avatar URL:" field from Control Panel / Options | Edit Profile.

Avatar must be saved on a website, if not email me (my nickname at banglacricket dot com) the pic.

It must be 100 X 100 pixels or less.

Hope this helps.

Looks great!! When every things is done, I have a request. can the reply box be made a little larger? If the top and bottom margin is equal to the left or right margin it would look symmetric.

We will move this thread to the support forum in a few days.

this is strange that the request is coming from you. i thought vladmamu is supposed to make this request.

May I ask why do you need symmetric post box? In fact, asymmetric post box complements the asymmetric contents of the posts in most of the threads.

Neat freak? lol.

Utilizing space to its maximum. Sometimes I have to reply/quote on Vlad's comments. Scrolling up and down on those small boxes makes it harder.

We have now brought back two of the most useful special features:

- forum jump: ability to use a pull down menu to navigate quickly to the forums here
- newposts: ability to view new posts since your last visit

Many thanks to Nasif for bringing these add-ons back to our forum after the upgrade.

Try out BanglaCricket Light

Oh I like it! Its a classic. Just one complain, if i may... something needs to be done for those white borders. Looks great when the background is light grey, but is a bit awkward for those white backgrounds i.e. alternate posts in a thread. One suggestion to solve that would be, removing the idea of having alternate posts in two different background colours. Just keep it light grey all the way. Although the sides and the tops are all good in white.

Thank you very much whoever did this. Now Vlad and me have more space to blabber and have to do less scrolling. :clap::clap:
