    Hi, the new site is here and we are sure a few issues and gremlins on the way.
    Firstly just to say it has been a huge task to get all data across safely and ready for the new system.
    We decided to launch to put everyone out their misery and there are still a few things to sort.
    A (work in progress) page about this is here – https://morsbags.com/welcome and we will do a FAQ page soon
    Please respond here if you have any questions or issues to report.
    Current things we know about are
    * iOS (iPhone/iPad) top right login doesn’t work and the Pods page crashes the browser
    * Trying to edit your Forum Profile or even view it may return a ‘not found’ page
    * Not obvious how to edit your bag tally in your pod (hover over the tally number to see an edit icon – then click)

    If any of you have login or pod issues then please let us know here first or email us first on admin@morsbags.com, registering or creating a pod again may cause duplicate users/pods.

    Good luck all! Thanks for all your feedback so far and in advance!

    Joby and Pol,

    I love the new site, thank you to everyone involved for all their hard work so far.

    No you are not missing it, I am afraid there is no facility as yet.
    It is not something that has been integrated yet, we wanted to look at all the options first.
    It was a fine balance of delay the site further (on a very tight budget as well) or get it out and see what is demanded!

    ‘Resources’ download links now fixed, was a gremlin.
    Hope they work and you enjoy using them.

    Love the new look website and forums…. is there still going to be a ‘catch up’ section though, for non-morsbag related chat? Thanks

    Hello, another quick question…. how to i upload pics?
    I’ve made some bags for the Christmas morsbag competition this morning and have pics on my phone…. any help/advice appreciated.
    In the meantime i’ll put them on the fb page.

    Hi Sazzie, if you mean to place on the forum then it is the same as usual – you upload them to flickr and then get the url of the picture by selecting the ‘share’ icon on the image in flickr and then clicking the ‘link’ icon to get the URL of the picture (this is the same as the old forum)
    Then here in the forum simply click the ‘ing’ button above the place you are typing and paste the url into the dialogue box that appears – job done – no need for silly tags etc like the old forum

    Much better being able to log in from the forum pages, instead of finding something you want to reply to, logging in, then having to find it again. I was having problems finding new posts too. It’s much better with the box of new posts on the right.
