When you are posting a new topic, you Need to put in topic tittle a short title, the in the Description you put a short statement. Its only 50 charactors so links etc will now have to go into the first post. (IE this is going to be the first post)

We are working on a fix for a look and feel like our old site.

Search is there.

We are working on a Gallary

We will be able to post a good links page

PM is avail, it will be a test for now.

We can Warn and temp suspend as needed

Enjoy the site, we look forward to once agin reading about the Sherman or the Ram and how it was superior to the Tiger... OK maybe that was a stretch.

Merry Christmas :rolleyes:

I like the new board!

I hope you guys like the Invision software. I used to help admin a board with it and it was always pretty easy for me to use (and I'm a dunce when it comes to computer stuff...)

I like the old system that had the topic post as the #1, with most recents right below that. Now I have to jump all the way to the back to see what everyone is already talking about.

Just as in the old forums you need a permission to upload something to the board. You can link images from external webspace if so desired.



but a different problem: where went my custom status message? :angry:

:huh:
Different sort of problem. I pick a post to reply to, and I get the last (top post) instead of the one I thought I was selecting.
Example:
Tusanami thread, Post by Hans: (in the #2 spot)
" Not directed at the US ....."

What I got to reply to was swerve's comment, (in the #1 spot)

Ooops! buttons that look ike they are at the top of the post actually work the post above..... :lol:

And mozilla firefox users, in the options, use whatever colors you like, but specify use system colors.

Yet another problem. Options allowing download/printing of entire topic do not seem to work with long threads.

"Download HTML", "download Microsoft Word", printer-friendly version - they all show a blank page if I try to use any of them on threads having 20 pages or so. Printable version worked fine with the old forum engine regardless of number of pages in thread.

Example:"Brit infantry in WWII - what went wrong?", currently in GenMil forum. 22 pages long. Single pages look fine, but I get a blank page with any of download/print options. Or "76mm Hvap" thread, somewhere in the archives of the AFV forum. 17 pages. Ditto.

Is this my software problem, or problem with forum software? Could it be fixed? It would be nice, the download options are most useful with long threads really.

Cheers,
Zwolo

I tried it to see what would happen and I had the same result, a lot of connection activity for a few seconds and then a blank page.
