I'm not an admin, but (as far as I'm aware) we don't have the image resizing stuff turned on / installed / not available in our (older) version of vB...so it all needs to be done on the hosting side, sadly.

I've asked an admin if they've got anything to add.

cheers

James

One of the admins has confirmed to me that it has to be done on the hosting side on our installation on vB, sadly.

cheers

Thatís because the Time Limit on Editing of Thread Title (default: 5)
Time limit in minutes within which the topic title can be edited by the user who started the topic.

Iíll see I can do

Yes, youíre spot on. Itís a historic thing, from a dark time when a rogue tuning firm were advertising their shoddy wares on the forum, and then going back and editing posts to make a nonsense of threads whenever they were challenged. Arguably the time limit for edits could now be removed, in fairness, as all thatís ancient history.

I think youíll find the magic editing pixie has changed them for you, anyway

cheers

James

So been fettling today

Test fitting of a 3rd row of seats

Picked them up for £50 with a load of fittings

The flap that opens for the under floor space already had the fixings in it so 6 x bolts and itís in



Just needs these bits drilling and bolting



Now just to work out how the seatbelts go in

I think I have a few bits missing though and maybe a few extra bits





if anyone has any pics of the mounting points for the belts then that would be very much appreciated
