Updates And News!

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I added a lot of new Millennium desktop background images to TIWWA's Gallery, in 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024 size. Some of them are larger versions of the existing images and they are all the ones available on the offical Millennium website. I've added them to promote them, for ease of access and to make sure they don't dissapear into the ether if the Millennium site ever goes away like the original one.

They really are fantastic, go take a look.

The Gallery is due to have an update this week as is the main forum. I apologise for not yet fixing the default blue and white gallery buttons but this is a low priority as I've been busy working with Libby on a new website to replace Millennium Desktop UK.

This includes the new episode and credits guide, which is looking really cool at the moment even if I say so myself! We are aware that volunteer contributors have been waiting patiently for news on the episode guide project but it is the most advanced site I've done and a lot of work has gone into setting it up, writing scripts, plus as it forms part of the new version of the existing Millennium Desktop site, it has been designed from the ground up with this in mind and is taking some time to get right. We have a great new Content Management system coded exclusively for the site. Libby is also busy finishing her Season 3 transcripts, making SQL queries and so forth. We are now adding some data to the pages ready for volunteers to look at and give them an idea of what is expected. Thank you for your patience and undertanding that we are working on this in our spare time and we want to make sure it performs well and is as accurate as possible.

Finally, you may notice if you use the default TIWWA skin that the background has turned black! This is because I've been aware that the Millennium themed background image was casuing the large index page to scroll a bit slowly on older machines. There are currently 3 TIWWA skin options which you can select at the bottom of the screen:

TIWWA default (black background)

TIWWA Flash banner (with animated Flash Banner at the top of the page, once loaded it is cached in your browser and displays immediately when you view a new page)

TIWWA with Millennium background image (the old default)

If you would like to support TIWWA you can make a small donation using the PayPal option at the top of the page, you don't need a PayPal account and there is no minimum to what you can donate to our running and hosting costs. Help keep TIWWA advertising free and up to date with the latest addons. Thanks!


PS. Don't forget you can start a TIWWA blog on anything you like if you have over 25 posts and that TIWWA now has a Rich Text Editor selectable in your My Controls>Board Options page which is allows for much easier formating of your posts, replies, gallery and blog comments and when you are creating new content blocks for your Blogs.

LOL! I wish it was me that was capable of fixing them! I looked through it and I've never experienced any of them! IPS do check a reported bug though through their Bug Tracker to duplicate it etc before they mark it for squatting.

These wallpapers are great, and thank you for staying on top of the updates! I'm sure they can become dizzying with their frequency.

Actually they are not too often Chris. This ones been out a few weeks and I delayed updating to see if anyone had any problems after updating their boards and also because I didn't want to spend ages redoing templates for the skin. I prefer it when the updates have more new features than bug fixes though!
