Post by: wolf39us on May 02, 2015, 09:40:53 AM
Understand this is an upgrade with no modifications.. .BUT, I thought I'd point to you guys a new version of this board software

http://atheistforums.com/test

The login is at the VERY top left (I had to look for it myself).

Anyways, you guys are welcome to poke around if you want.  See if you like what SMF will be doing with their new board software.

Does this change in format have something to do with my avatar disappearing?  I've noticed there are a few others who have lost avatars.

It's forum software. I fail to see anything all that different to necessitate a change. Perhaps if you'd explain what features this does add that makes a change worthwhile or whatever other reason (such as our current version no longer being supported or something) that you're looking at this now.

Odd, I was getting a session time out when I tried to preview a quick post.

Don't have both this site and the other site open on the same browser at the same time.  Funky things happen due to the way cookies interact with the site

I'm not likely going to change it.  No worries, I just thought it might be fun to poke around the new software and see if people like it.

Are there (or will there be) links for 'new replies to your posts' and 'all unread topics'?  'Cause those are how I make my way around.  Check to see what trouble I've caused, and then check to see what new trouble there is to get into...

Or are they already there but cunningly hidden?

As long as I have those, I can manage in a new software environment.

I'm not sure yet, I'm new to the software myself.  I'm pretty capable of modifications if necessary, but I'll play with it soon

Truth is Wolf I once was the administrator for a few different sites including my own and used to play around with various different forum softwares.. This one is just peachy keen and I see no use in changing.  Unless there's some revolutionary software that changes the way we communicate I can't see a reason to change other than minor tweaks to improve usability.  The current forum works great.  We're familiar with it and nobody seems to have a problem..
Hey,  I get it though..It's the latest and greatest bells and whistles, but we still hear whistles and bells with what we have.

Can't say I'm a fan, but I wasn't a fan of the current layout either, initially. I'm think I'm just averse to change.

Haha, I'm not likely to change it.  Just thought I'd show everyone what the latest version looks like

Base on the new site there isn't anything added as function for the site but more of a new skin. We can change how the site looks. We can do almost anything we want. So if you guys wants to have the skin of the site different we can make that happen. All you guys have to do is message us and if we get enough people asking we will work on it. That is why we are here.
