    We made the jump

    So as you probably noticed, things look a little different. This is the new version of the forum software, which is hopefully working properly. Please let us know if stuff is broken or what changes need to be made.

    Things I know about as of this post
    no POTM bammer
    no GMN banner
    no chatbox

    Its being worked on, just wanted to get the forum back online in a somewhat functional form while the small stuff is tinkered with.

    It's broken HTML formatting on my end. I'll try clearing the cache and seeing if that fixes anything.


    Edit: Just modified something in my User Settings and everything fixed itself to a functional display.

      lt me know if that works. I did some stuff with the old styles and it seems like it broke things a bit. I rebuilt it and now its loading normally for me on Edge again

          Good stuff, onwards to new adventures and many more great years at GMN!

          Mine was borked just a second ago, now it's working again. Mobile and PC FF.
          We need a home page, especially the "latest posts" box we had. I think that's very important for overall member useability.

            That was an add-on thing for vb4. VB5 uses the 'latest activity' tab for that functionality

              Oh well. I guess I gotta adjust. I'm (mentally) a boomer, I don't like change lol!
              Hmm there's a new topics button, wonder how that'll work.

              Seems like the log in / notifications, messages, profile boxes in the top right are a bit spotty. I did click remember me when logging in, but sometimes its says to log in, even though it's actually logged in when changing to another page.

                I'm not real keen on some of the changes either. As I learn more about this new version, I may be able to "fix" things a bit. We will see. This will not be a quick process.

                Side note, to use the multiquote feature, select quote on each post and then go back to the TOP of the page and click the "post reply" button and it will populate the quick reply box at the bottom. You must select all the quotes to quote first because each time you press the post reply button, it will clear the reply box and repopulate it. anything you've typed will be lost.

                  Smilies are broken. I'm attempting to fix them.

                    Smilies are fixed. Also fixed the site banner to add RA and ADTR links and made a new site logo to replace the big Vbulletin logo at the top of the page. I tried for a slightly rust look in the font. Best I can do as I'm not a graphics expert. Got attachments working. If anything else is messed up, let us know. I gotta go change oil in a couple of vehicles and mow the lawn (yeah... hopefully for the last time this "winter").

                      Maybe we ought to dump the ADTR thing. They went out of business so far as I know, and now that just goes to some porn site. Tits are fun and all but its perhaps not quite what we're aiming to promote here.

                        I didnt know that!

                        Oh and just please change out the pictures for the Panther of the month. I admit I abandoned the deal years ago as there was little to no participation. I would change it myself if I could. It kills me all these years seeing a car up there from a member who does not participate or visit the forum all that much. I dont care at all what goes up there as long as it is something different.

                          They're still up.

                          With regards to POTM, maybe a banner of several cars could be done up with a modern GMN banner? Or.... POTM become a anyone who's interested within one year of winning thread to post their car. Just a though though, so take that as you will.

                            I dunno if somebody did something but now there's a very convenient "today's posts" button on the front page. Thanks I guess

                            For the banners... I'd be cleaner completely without them. Replace the "rustic" logo with a simple-ish banner that doesn't need to change according to potm or anything. Something like what crownvic.net has. Or maybe just add some sort of slogan below the URL logo.
                            I don't know what position RockAuto has on this forum in terms of sponsorship or what, but I guess the banner exists for a reason.

                            I whipped these up with my (worse than sly's) graphic design skills, mostly an idea put on paper, no effort really.

                              LoL.

                              I also think 87gtVIC's idea is a good one. Perhaps if all of the photos submitted of panthers through the years for PotM are still available, something could be set up such that they rotate every week or even daily.

                              Thank you to everyone who got the site functioning normally again. Doesn't appear to be broken like it was and we can like stuff. Need a dislike button though, because it is ok to dislike stuff, contrary to popular western belief.
