Site Update Comments

Ian, if I click on "What's New", I get dozens of videos that you've obviously migrated across - but they fail to disappear from the read list, even if I look at them.

 

How can I just get current forum threads/discussions to appear with the "What's New" button. I have gone into the sub-menus for activity stream and changed "Content" to eliminate videos from the content, but they continue to appear each time I click "What's New".

We must take a moment and give EXTREME thanks to @Ahmed Zayed for spending hours all night developing a way to migrate all the Aircraft in the Aircraft Section...if he hadn't been able to achieve this

Yay...finally made it! Just posted the 500th profile.

I also seem to have experienced that and I am not sure what has caused it. I will continue to look into it however you can click the "Mark site read" link at the top right corner under the header which will mark everything read and start with a clean slate

O.K. I've done that. It cleared the "What's New" list - until I closed down the site, and then returned an hour or so later - whereupon all the videos and trips/events you migrated across, showed up again, as unread. Maybe it's something in the programming that changed, when the popup sub-menus change was carried out?

 

I've also found, that even though I select the sections I want to appear under "Content Types", and apply changes - then close down the webpage and return later, I find that the "Content Types" has returned to the default of "All Content".

I have spent the last couple of days getting the Resources, Tutorials and Aircraft sections all looking, in my opinion, absolutely incredible...these sections are looking cosmetically really appealing, easy to use and ready for an abundance of great material all making the site a comprehensive "resource" for all aviators.

 

The Resources section has at this stage a full online working copy of an E6B and a comprehensive weather tool full of links to all the pertinent weather information you need

 

The Tutorials section has had some great "How To Read" tutorials added covering NOTAMs, ARFOR, SIGNET, METAR and TAF

 

The Aircraft section has had some extensive cosmetic changes to make this comprehensive resource a gold mine to use...a HUGE thanks from all of us must go to @red750 for tirelessly getting the Aircrat section populated and going for everyone.

 

PLEASE, and as always, let me know what other Tutorials, Resources, Tools and Calculators etc that you would like to see added to these sections for you

i have added "CASA Aircraft Register Search" to the Resources: Tools and Calculators section so you can quickly serach for any VH registered aircraft. I will be updating the page soon to also include NZ, US, UK register searches...hope you find it useful.

 

There are many many more calculators and tools that I will be progressively adding to the Resources section that I hope you will find helpful...if you know of any that you may need then please let me know so I can prioritise them for you.

 

Recreational flying (.com) just keeps on getting better :thumb up: so please, let everyone know about this great resource
