    UPDATE

    The forum upgraded has been delayed (as you may have noticed). The upgrade is today 27th September 2018 and is scheduled for approx. 09.00am PST/17.00pm BST. During this time there will be down time of up to 4 hours. If we experience any technical issue our FB page will be updated as frequently as possible (please keep in mind we have people working from the UK and US time).

    Hi lovelies,

    BabyandBump is preparing to upgrade the forum and move over to a new design. We are super excited.

    While there will be some new cool features added (like @tagging, likes instead of thanks) we understand there will be questions; we will answer all these questions as soon as possible on launch.

    Please read the following information of what to expect:

    • BnB migration to Xenforo software is planned for September 19.
    • We recommended that you save any content you can't afford to lose. If you have pictures and private messages of that nature, please download them to your computer. We have been able to successfully migrate pictures (attachments) so this is just a precaution.
    • Downtime: TBD
    • More Info will be provided as it becomes available.

    UPDATE
    • BnB migration to Xenforo software has been delayed and is now planned is planned for September 24/25 TBC
    • Downtime will be expected


    In the mean time why not familiarise yourself with the navigation tutorial below and attached user manual.

    Will Journals be only available to view if you're a member as they were before the upgrade or will they remain visible to the public as they are now?
    Or is there something specific we as a member need to change setting-wise so that our journals aren't viewable to all?

    They should be as before. I'll change the settings. Does this apply to all the journal types?

    (I restricted all to members only)

    As far as I know, yes all journals used to be private unless you're a member.

    Thank you for the fix Buffaloed. I am sure I'm not the only one who appreciates it.

    I never knew the journals were private, but I certainly appreciate that feature now that I know about it. Thank you!

    I noticed that all photos used to be viewable to members only. Now, I can see photos without being signed in.

    Will that change?

    Where did these new viruse ads come from? One second I am reading or typing a reply, the next my phone is buzzing and taking me to a 'Amazon' site and it will not let me leave?!
    I never had this issue before the update.
    Edit to add screen shots. Because my phone was taken over only seconds after my post.

    Unregistered / non-logged in posters shouldn't be able to see attachments, etc: can you point us to an example of this so we can investigate? Feel free to send a note via private conversation.

    I logged out, and went to the most recent pregnancy test gallery. I could still see test photos. I’ve also seen ladies bump pictures while logged out!

    Can you check that same thread for me while logged out and see if it's working right now?

    I'm not sure if it's possible or not but would there be a way to add the ability to upload videos as attachments? If it's possible I know a lot of us ladies would really appreciate it :cloud9:.

    It’s working correctly! I couldn’t find that exact same thread but I looked through several pregnancy test threads and I don’t see any photos while logged out.

    Thank you so much!

    I think they're too big to be practical. Current file size limit is only 1mb. I'll ask them to increase it but I don't think it can go much above 3mb. Judging from the size of videos on my phone that's not going to be big enough to be useful. I added some code so you can embed your own mp4's if you have them hosted somewhere else
    Code:
    [video]fullurltoyour.mp4[/video]
