Forum Upgrade

Post by harveym » Thu Jan 22, 2009 3:40 pm

Sorry for the inconvenience this morning during our Forum Software upgrade.

The new software is much more powerful than previous releases and stability is unmatched. I'm not sure how many changes that members and mods will see but I guarantee that there are many many new features that will only improve your time spent here on BBQTalk.

I will bring banners and some new themes back over the next few days. Sponsors are going to love the new options that will allow them control over their banners view times and geographical insertion.

Enjoy!

Harvey

The software that Harvey has upgraded too is really second to none on the market. This will make all of our experiences on BBQ Talk that much better. Thanks for the upgrade Harvey.

I strongly urge all members to take a look at the "FAQ" (found at the top of every page) and read all the new options available. This software is unbelievable.

Crap, you can even switch to an easy print mode!!! This is better than being 6 years old in the candy store with no one around : )

Thanks Doug, I still have a few(many) tweaks and tests here and there but it really is a big improvement so far.

The only thing that I have noticed Harv as that there seems not to be the spot on the forum where you can click on to mark all forums as read. Will that be installed at some point and time? I bet working on this new site for you is better than Christmas isn't it :wink: 8) Hippie
