It's the Uncovered Open Beta - AND IT'S LIVE!

Post by mikkyx » Sun Jul 01, 2012 2:32 pm

I'm delighted to lift the curtain and get the Uncovered Open Beta underway. You will find all the access details in the stickied thread in the now unlocked Uncovered Testing Forum:
viewforum.php?f=11

Please keep all general feedback in this topic, and report any bugs / issues you find in the new forum.

All being well we will have a test run of the new livematch functionality to begin honing it to perfection at the Whitby friendly, and launch for real on August 1st.

Enjoy!

I got the address right, but not the log in details. Better luck next time trying to get a sneaky peak I guess :-)

The menu links to the Forums are just giving me a blank page in IE9 32bit on Win7 Ult SP1 64bit

Looking nice though...

Missing links - some things haven't quite been ported over yet. Especially not for the forum - I'm probably going to have to retheme this place shortly AFTER the launch.

I posted before that appeared. Us Windows users are too fast fast for you Mac folk :D

Everything looks nice and formatted as it should be in IE9 32bit, IE9 64bit, Tor, and the site looks good on my phone running Android ICS too

Forum to be integrated ASAP after launch which, hopefully, will be August 1st.

Glad you like it on iPhone / Android but I DO plan to get the mobile version up and running soon so will need to retest the site when that happens :)

Surely its not a bad thing that adverts don't work :)

That can happen if Google hasn't seen the page to attach ads to it. Might keep happening until we go live.

Mr Tibbs, I've split your post out to it's own topic in the testing forum. Just in case you wondered where it went :)

Not sure if this is a problem with the site or my location, I tried accessing the new site this morning and it just kept asking me for my log on credentials, it's what we have to do to access the internet from a works PC, I'm just guessing here but it may be something to do with the server I access through is based in Germany even though I'm sitting in an office in North Shields.

Apologies from me I didn't see the username & password, so I was attempting to use my works password, don't I feel stupid.

Looks really good

BUMP. I'm away on my originally planned launch date so I'm either going to launch it before I go or when I get back. July 27th or August 6th. Haven't decided yet.

Any chance we could get some more testing done? I refuse to believe there's only one bug :lol:

Going to try and launch the mobile version for testing this weekend too.

Minor thing but the http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/Sport/Footba ... Darlington link in the bottom right hand corner does not open up in a new window but redirects you, not sure if this is how you intended as the other tabs open a new window.

Also the Wembley Stories http://new.darlofc.co.uk/news/639 looks a bit messy, again not sure if this is how it is meant to look.

Everything else is working great on Fire Fox

It looks like the story titles should be the link text, not the URLs.

ONE FINAL BUMP.
All being well, this goes live tomorrow. One final request for people to test it if possible - the mobile version is also up and running so you can go to the same URL on your phone to see that. You won't get the mobile version on the iPad but you might get it on Android tablets.

Details and bug reports (PLEASE DO NOT REPORT BUGS IN THIS THREAD) in the dedicated subforum:
