Welcome.

We've successfully migrated from an ancient version of vBulletin to XenForo. Almost everything has been migrated over but I do expect there to be some odd things from time to time, so please let me know your comments, issues and suggestions in this thread.

I do plan tweaking the look and feeling of the board.

Cool. Sometimes it's nice to redecorate, just like a house. It'll take a bit for me to get used to it, though.

I also like the Facebook-style like buttons.

@IdRatherBeSkiing word is on the street that TapaTalk is unnecessary with the mobile capabilities of this software.

If you haven't, check out the new forums on your mobile device and I think you'd agree.

I use tapatalk to get the notifications. I read the other forum on my PC. I find the browser screen on my ,mobile device too small although it does work. But if not there, it's not a big deal. It wasn't there before either. :)

A minor glitch to report.

When I post it just hangs. If I ht refresh I see the post is posted it just doesn't come back. I get the bar going across the top for ever.

Also, I brought the forums offline so that I could go through the posts and fix a leftover from vBulletin whereby YouTube links posted were not embedding properly in xenforo. It didn't catch all of the videos but it did get most.

Regular Expression:
Code:
(\[url\](https|http):\/\/(?:(m|www)\.)*+youtube\.com\/watch\?v=([0-9A-Za-z_-]{10}[048AEIMQUYcgkosw])\[\/url\]|\[url\](https|http):\/\/youtu\.be\/([0-9A-Za-z_-]{10}[048AEIMQUYcgkosw])\[\/url\])

I might go through Twitter another day to make them properly embedded but I don't think it's been *that* popular. Anyhow, Twitter posts are now embedded so if you post a link to a tweet, it'll display on your post.

I am loving what I am seeing. ;-) It is similar to a US based Forum that I participate on.(as well) but this one is a lot neater .Major KUDOS to Andem. !!!
Thanks a lot, @Ocean Breeze ! I'm still working on customizing it to something that doesn't look like very many other message boards (something I've been doing since the 2000s), so stay tuned and there might be a few more improvements.

I have total confidence in you and your ideas and ability. Again. Very well done. Sooo much better than the previous. , although the previous served us well too.and for a long time. It is like saying goodbye to an old friend......and starting a new friendship .;-) -metaphorically ;-) THANK you Andem for all the effort you have putin to get it to this level. It is really appreciated.
