FYI - When I attempt to access the site this morning I get an "insecure site - invalid certificate" notice, and the color scheme is back to all blue.
I logged on last night with no security warning and the normal red/gold color.

Correct, we still need to transfer over the security certificate, which should be done later today.

I like the blues because it's easier on the eyes. Though it's not very Theravada Buddhist colored. Is it possible to give users the option of choosing the background color scheme from a list of options?

Greetings mkoll,

There used to be. When I get a moment to look around, I'll see if this software version still has it. First, we will need to find out where the original color scheme has gone.

The website is also much, much faster. Definitely an upgrade from the servers it was on before:

Congratulations on successful common travel in time and space!

Evidently, the warp engine has meddled with some molecular links in the bodies:

https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=6114

so the links lead to Great Unknown which can't be found anywhere.

Greetings,

Hmm... this is not good.

It would seem that a forward slash after the "com" has disappeared.

Code: Select all

If we could do a replace all instances of "comviewtopic" with "com/viewtopic" it could fix it?

So that is why Safari could not find you. I just re-searched and now see the 'com/' is back. :buddha2:

Colors are back to more traditional-Theravada-look. And it helps me tell the 3 forums apart with the different colors.

(you might have to hit refresh on your browser to see the new colors)

And in honor of the new changes, I have changed my username to DNS which are my initials and also is an acronym for Domain Name Server. :tongue:

Well DNS, the muddy old colors are only on the top page, so the light & airy blues still remain elsewhere - good enough. :twothumbsup:

It is great that the secondary color of the forum (used as background for subforum titles) was changed from yellow to light blue. That's what the chosing-color manual recommands. DW is now almost as color-suited as the sister site dharmawheel. I still feel a little strange due to the change but we will get used with it in time. It's better this way.

I don't know what to say about the blue background to forum posts, we will see

DW still has a problem with trailing slashes that it also had before:
This website returns page content with or without a trailing slash on the URLs. Search engines might see these as separate pages with duplicate content which they could penalise for. Close recommendations
Use a 301 redirect or a canonical meta tag to force search engines to see the correct version.
This is very easy to fix. If there is no particular reason for having this problem then it should be fixed because it causes duplicate content on google and is bad for indexing.
