  • Upgrade Status

    We are currently in process of upgrading the boards from 3.7.x to 5.0.4.

    I got as far as 4.2.1 tonight but will try to finish it up in the morning.

    Man... I hope you guys can find this...
    ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

      When the upgrade is complete will users have the ability to choose different skins for the forum (like we used to)?

        Did you used to???

        I never intended for that to be the case as I wanted to have 1 look and feel to the site. I guess we will see what the 5 version does and offers.

          FYI - I have made no changes to banned people in the past few days. If you were able to log in and contribute a few days ago, you should still have that ability now.

            Good point! Not sure that I was able to change that in the past.
            All I know is that it looks different now. I'll wait until you're done upgrading to post about this again...

              I thought I was lost for a second.

              When I first came to this forum I wasn't a fan of all the green. Now I realize I have grown accustomed to it and miss it. Its the little things. Upgrade looks good.

                I knew that the look and feel would change. This was an expected result as the extensive changes I did to the 3.x version was vast. I will have to learn a lot about how the 5.x system is built because it is fairly different.

                The greens will come back because... well... this is golf... and this is the Pacific Northwest. Maybe more subtle greens this time.

                Thanks for bearing with me, guys.

                  i am very much looking forward to seeing the end result on the change. i like the "group" and "blog" options, but for the time being they dont merit losing what we had. i will hold my final opinion until everything is done, but for now im not into how things are looking at all for the forums.

                    Again, the look and feel will be changing to match the rest of the site. I am not sure what we lost. The arcade is gone but will eventually be replaced when the powers that do such things make one for vb5. Please be patient. We can add or remove pretty much anything to the site.

                    hi sam, first i do want to thank you for the effort and work you have put in on this website over all the years!! my comment came from mostly shock at the stark difference between the old format and the new one. i know its not done yet, and i am looking forward to seeing the finished product. thanks again for your time into the forums for us all to use.

                        I just sent you a test message, Chris. Log out and log back in and let's see if that cleared things up for you.

                          I don't know about anyone else, but the site is now really slow to load, and has frozen my I Phone and laptop multiple times.

                            It does seem a little slower. Haven't tried it on the phone yet.

                            Has it improved at all? I originally had the template comments on to let me know where I need to edit things. That is pretty taxing on the performance. I am also looking into other ways to improve the speed of the site.

                            Looking into this. Thought I had improved this prior to you posting this.

                          I'm no longer seeing the "new posts" and "mark forums read" options. Are those items lost for good?

                            Nothing will ever be "lost for good". It will just be a matter of replacing what is missing with the hacks that are surely coming from the hoards of developers who love creating said things.

                            New Posts is KIND OF replaced by the "Recent Topics" item on the sidebar. If you click on "View All", you should see a synopsis of all you missed since you last logged in. Let me know if this isn't quite the same quality as you experienced before and we will see about fixing it.

                            Mark Forums Read is something already on my radar.

                            Thanks.
