    The forum has been updated to the latest software version, and we've also updated the theme and many of the custom features we've been using. Not all of the work is completed yet - we're still working on implementing some of the old features and functionality, as well as layout features.

    Before you point out features that are missing from before the updates, give us a chance to finish up the work. There will be some features that may or may not be available still due to incompatibilities with the new software version. We tried our best to minimize feature losses.

    Give me a week to get things wrapped up and then I'll start a thread pointing out some of the benefits of the new software update.

    I use my car's profile photos when I'm linking pics into threads. The old format for displaying a profile's photos was fairly quick to scroll through as it put photos in 2 column grid that you could scroll down, but the new one is extremely painful as instead of scrolling down in the browser I have to click a small right arrow button a bajillion times (I have 200+ photos and it will grow over time). Can this be improved? Otherwise I won't be uploading photos to the site anymore.

    Although not a fan of change, love the new theme.

    I think the only thing I wanted to know with this, is what about all the old photos for the all the guides. Is the new move to hopefully alleviate the use of Photobucket? I had so many pages bookmarked to build my car, to help friends, and even just to read. Now all the photos are gone.

    I feel like a kid in kindergartner that got his pop-up picture book taken away to read a chapter book, Lol

    Thanks for keep this site a live! I couldn't keep my car running otherwise, haha!

    Are you talking about this page, if so, don't worry, I plan to make it look more like the old way the photo thumbnails were displayed:

    This is so great, your the man
    Also my phone isn't getting aids when im on the site.. Which is nice.

    Zoo keeper, the search button doesn't have an option for classifieds..

    Just everything and other stuff..

    So when we want to search for parts it would be useful.
    Like before..

    Possibly go back to the old theme color? This all white page is a bit too bright for me

    "Oh, you think the darkness is your ally, you merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man; by then, it was nothing to me but blinding! The shadows betray you, because they belong to me."

    Most of the old plugins we were using have been added back in outside of a few, which means most of the old features should be working again. I know the Buyer/Seller rating images are broken and will fix that soon. I know Classified postings are missing the extra fields they used to have. I hope to add that back in soon, but still researching whether or not the old solution we were using will work.

    Hope everyone is enjoying the new updated look and layout. I know I am.

    I'm just a casual lurker of the site, 99% of the time on my cell phone, and I absolutely love the new format. Great job!

    Turns out most of the traffic is now browsing the site on mobile these days, so I made sure to put extra focus on the mobile experience. Still planning some more tweaks.

    This is FANTASTIC! I have a slower internet connection at home and the site loads literally 3-5X faster for me at least. Plus, there used to be bugs in the code which cause massive amounts of processor usage and slowed down my computer. This seems to run far better. Awesome change. Definitely more modern.
