Really like the new website!

Especially how you can see part of a post by just hovering over it with your cursor. Look & feel is good too. So far a really good improvement! We seem to have lost the little icon for it though (don't know what they are actually called).

So glad you like it - lots of change here. We're still making some adjustments but didn't want the site to be offline any longer than necessary.


Regarding the little icon.. do you mean the one that displays on your browser tab? That thing is called a favicon and we will need to design new one but it's on the list

Yup, that's the thingie I'm talking about. Also - I got an email about your reply! Never got one from the old one unless I subscribed - does one get automatically subscribed to new threads we post?

Yes and you get a notice but.. You can configure your account to not send these or send them once a day, etc.

These are called thread subscriptions and you can change these settings in your user settings (user cp). There is a link on the upper nav bar but here's the direct link: https://www.montanaowners.com/forums/usercp.php

Look for the section called edit options. Be sure to scroll down and hit save after you make changes. This changes any subscriptions set up after the changes you make.

You can also delete existing subscription in this same area.

Nice new avatar btw

It's refreshing to hear the positive feedback, thank you!

It took a lot of work/logistics to make it happen. Special thanks to the Moc Admin and the previous forum host for working with us to figure it out. Also a special thanks to Mike (who signs in under Tech Admin) for figuring out the technical details to switch us from one platform to the other, not an easy task.

If you all have any questions we are here to help!

Looks good to me. Thanks for the effort to upgrade. Now, just to get used to it and learn the new features so it's as easy as before.

Keep it up troops! Site looks great and much cleaner! I do have a question-- How do I eliminate previous post on our CPRR site from last year?

I think features like changing the photo sharing/posting is going to make using the forum easier and less frustrating. We all know how a picture can say a thousand words.
And on that note, hopefully we can keep the Gi-normous signatures in check with this fresh start.

We know that members like to show off their rigs in their signatures. That being said, we too wanted to make sure the forum remains easy to read for everyone. Instead of allowing huge photos we have set the limit to two photos are are a max of 500 pixels wide and 100 pixels tall. This way they are wider than they are tall meaning less scrolling past "GI-normous" signature photos.

We hope this will be a decent balance providing members enough space to show their rigs and express themselves vs making the pages much longer to scroll (and load).

Thumbs up

Nice job!! Like the new look and options!

Will take a little time to figure things out like adding a picture to the signature thing.
