    Greets, folks.

    As you likely figured, it was high time the software was brought up to speed so I've migrated our forum here to Xenforo, which is what we use at GatorCountry.com since I'm familiar with (and trust) it.

    I've also moved our site to brand new digs onto a nice, fast server so hopefully you'll see a speed improvement also. Annnd it looks grrreat on mobile now!

    If you have any issues or questions, feel free to holler my way. This will be a work in progress with ongoing tweaks to get everything sorted just right.

    Enjoy, my friends!
    Ray

    P.S. I noticed registrations were blocked for several years, hence no new blood here. The new software fixes this and new rookies can register once again. Let your buddies know!

    P.P.S. @Terry O'Keefe, @Tennessee Tom, and @Gator Bill, my apologies for not giving you a heads up. I did this on a lark when I provisioned a new server and decided to move us all over when I had a spare moment -- better late than never! I will need to give you admin access, so please PM me for details.

    PPPS. This software supports embedding of most links, i.e. Tweets, Youtube, etc. Just post the URL to such and it'll encase it automatically. It's very cool for tweets, especially.

    Here's a Tweet:



    This is what I cut and pasted (you can get it from the tweet's "Copy link")

    I like all the new bells and whistles. I've long wanted to be able to like a post, and now we can do that as well as dislike it and Agree/Disagree as well as other options.

    File attachments now work, it's useful for photos you want to share that aren't linked elsewhere.

    You can either insert as full size or thumbnail...

    Full size:

    theskybox.jpg

    The other image I attached is below as a thumbnail, click it to view full size.

    To upload, just click upload a file button or drag it on top of your post editor.

    This software is really state of the art, I'm a member at InsideTexas and we can't do the things there that we can now do here. Mike Franks Irish Sports Daily another site I'm a member at also doesn't allow all the things we can do here.
