We know that change can be a difficult thing. We put off upgrading as long as we could. The old forum software hasn't had any new features or releases in a couple of years. In addition the old software did not support encrypted connections (HTTPS) nor many new technologies that make the site both more secure and much faster to browse.

To sum it up, it was broke and we had no choice but to change. With that change will come some growing pains.... the new software won't be exactly like the old software. We are going to be working over the next couple of weeks to make the transition as easy as possible. We'll be adding features as we go along.

We just got the site up and running after a long day of converting it to the new software. It's not 100% -- In fact, I'd say we are at about the 10% mark. So you'll notice the look changing, some add-ons will be added, and we'll have to implement some of the features that we had custom coded on the old site (banner finds for example).

Please be patient with us as we tackle this gigantic job!

  4. Get old Likes imported to new system
  5. Import all Banner Finds to Golden Threads System


The site is running on new hardware and with the software updates you should notice the website is MUCH faster. It also works very well from mobile, which the old software did not at all.


Automatic Thread Thumbnails / Added 9/29/2021 @ 12:30pm
We've added the ability for the software to automatically add a thumbnail to the thread based on the attachments in the thread. By default it will choose the first image you upload. It replaces your avatar with the thumbnail on the thread list. When you are making your thread you can also select which thumbnail image to use, and after you post you can also update the thumbnail on the thread view page by clicking the image/your avatar and looking for the pencil/edit icon and clicking on it. More information is available here: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/thread-thumbnail-by-addonslab.6265/

We can enable this for all forums, think we might put that up for a vote once people get a bit more used to it.

Golden Threads / Banner Finds
We are working on a new version of this since the old one will not work with this software. I've got some going and we'll be changing the appearance, features, etc... so it's a work in progress. You can see the "Golden Threads" on the Forum Index page for now. More info on the modification here: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/xtr-golden-threads.7891/

Testing the emoticons.... (to bring up the Emoticon keyboard, have the WYSIWYG editor active and press the Windows key and the ; key at the same time).

I see some of our stats migrated over to the new layout and some didn't. Use to hate being a member of a forum with over a 1,000 posts then bang back at zero after an upgrade or change. I haven't checked the pictures yet to see if they migrated.....

Well a quick check shows the pictures did, so that is good.

I thank yall for everything yall do to keep this site/forum up and running, so PLEASE don't take any of my nitpicking as criticism towards yall.

Platforms change, technology advances, we have to keep updated or we'll disappear just like outdated software. It takes a lot of behind the scenes work to keep things working and most of us will never understand how much work it is....So again thank you for keeping this site alive, functioning

Which stats didn't come over, I might be able to fix it up? We will be working on things for a while to get them set up. I may have to call it a night here pretty soon as I've been working on it all day and night. But we will pick it up tomorrow.

And no worries on the suggestions/criticism... It's all useful!

We might be able to whip up a script to import those, I think they are quite useful myself. The default importer did not import them but we can probably write something custom. Stay tuned.

So are we no longer able to upload a pic to our signature line? I tired and it just came up with linking a URL if you want to do that. I use to have my Operations Support Badge below my signature.

Unfortunately that is one of the limitations of the new software. It does not allow uploading of signature images. However, I'll be happy to host it for you so you can use it on our site.

Add the following code to your signature and the image will show up:

Thank you for the upgrade! It seems so much easier to use on my phone.

Over the years the amount of traffic coming from mobile on the site has increased. Mobile is now the way the majority of the users use the site. Having the old software broken on mobile has really been one of the big reasons we knew we HAD to upgrade the site.

Glad you are liking it... we still have more to add as well!
