OH MY WHAT HAVE I DONE (NEW FORUM!)

Postby Chris Layton » Sun Jan 15, 2012 4:31 am

Well it seems I got going earlier than most on my new years resolution. As you can see one of those resolutions was getting this forum updated. After a large cup of coffee and a hour or so worth of work I have moved the forum through 5 years worth of updates.

With that said some things are likely not working (I know some of them but at almost 5am I need some sleep before I can fix them) but if you see anything please post in this thread, send me a PM, or email me and I will add them to my list of things to fix.

I am also going to redo the theme but that maybe a bit further down the road.

Oh the garage is down till I can update it...but that is my top priority so it should be back up very soon !

Glad to see you got in ! Lots of new features are in this release and I am adding some more over the next few months.

Garage is setup ..now for the VERY tedious process of moving the data. I will likely start making progress on that by the end of the week. Then I need to make the Theme a little more like the main website....

I miss the automatic readout for number of new posts when you log on. I know that it only requires one simple step to get there, but.... is that something that can be done as a preferred setting?

This new forum format is doing something strange for me. Anything that I select turns so dark that I can barely read it. I apologize for misspelled words in this reply, because I can hardly see what I am typing because it is greyed out so dark.

I am taking notes :)

I will work on doing something to help with your issues Alvon ..might take a few days as non-weekend free time is limited.

On the post count.. I think I can do something there, just need some time :)

Nice improvement.
If only those living in the 1980s over at Mira would take a look at this place. :roll:

Thanks guys for all the feedback ! For those having issues like Alvons (page blacks out when in IE under Windows) I have found a fix that I will be installing later today.

Dwight, Mira would likely be very easy to move to a newer style board like this. I wager their users prefer the older format. I know when I first moved to the forum before this one there was some critical feedback on how it was too hard to use and how they prefered a setup like Mira. As they say "To each his own" but if you ever catch wind of them wanting to convert but dont have someone to do it I would be glad to take a look at it.

<soapbox>
Dont let the fact that we didnt go dark be a reason to ignore SOPA and PIPA. These are nasty little proposals that could change the way many things happen on the Internet. I recommend you take a moment and read up and educate yourself and , if you feel inclined, email or call your congresman and let them know how you feel.

Garage is working as long as you only add new vehicles and images. Mods, insurance, and other areas are not working. IE9 black out issue confirmed fixed.

Enjoy!
