Aug 17, 2008, 12:19 AM - TDH relocated!
TDH is now up and running on its new dedicated server!
Moves like this always result in oddities... we do our best, but strange things are bound to happen!
If anything seems not right, please let us know ASAP.
There are a couple of things I know of that need work:
- About 30 or so board attachments weren't able to be copied over. With the hundreds and hundreds of them there are, this probably won't even be noticed. But just in case... we know about this one.
- Email notifications may not be working properly yet. I'll sort that one out tomorrow.
Anything else that comes up will be added here, and then moved to a resolved list as they get fixed.
Hopefully we'll see a much faster forum, and we'll be able to use our new found power to do some great things down the line!

the upper right background graphic behind the name and logo to the right of the picture of jeremy at the top of every page is all grey instead of the red/black gradient.

maybe it's just my work computer then, I saved the graphic to my computer and opened it and it looks the same. I'll post it, but if it looks fine on your end then I'll know it's my computer.

that's what the logo should look like... it seems like the background image isn't loading:
can you get to this image:

the background behind the pic of jeremy looks fine and so does to the right of the logo.
Aug 20, 2008, 1:32 PM - Re: TDH relocated!
Ah, I think I understand now...
So in that logo you posted... you are saying there's a grey box around that image? It sounds like your browser doesn't support transparent PNG files. For me, the text is floating on a transparent background.
That sounds like a rendering issue on the computer you're using. Are you saying this looked right before the server move? I don't really see how the server location could have anything to do with PNG rendering...

yeah, there's a grey box around the image. it looked fine before today on this computer even after the switch.
Aug 20, 2008, 1:38 PM - Re: TDH relocated!
i just hit refresh and payed close attention, the background graphic goes all the way accross until the logo loads then it has the grey box. It's only a split second. So what you are saying about the transparent png makes sense, I just don't know why it was fine before today and now it's not.

We changed the graphics from JPG to transparent PNG last night.
Aug 20, 2008, 1:59 PM - Re: TDH relocated!
Ah, that would do it.
The Dent said:
Transparent PNG files don't render right in MSIE 6.
MSIE 7 works fine, as does Firefox, and pretty much every non-windows browser.

It all makes sense now. Out of curiosity, why the change?
Aug 20, 2008, 4:28 PM - Re: TDH relocated!
The way we were saving them down previously would sometimes create an incongruity between the foreground image and the background gradient. Using PNGs transparency eliminates that issue and allows us to more interesting treatments with the background in the future.
