Default Site Upgrade and New Look 11/28/2016




Hey Guys,


My name is Jeff, I am part of the development team.


Just wanted to give you a heads up; we are going to update the software here on 11/28/2016. Site will be down from around 4am to 2pm EST.


1) The site should be significantly faster.


We have applied every modern technique to speed up page load and tested with all modern browsers. We want the forum to be extremely fast and easy to use.


2) Mobile Friendly.


The site will work much better in mobile and tablet views.


We've started applying responsive design, and have designed and tested against android and iPhone devices, Android tablets, and iPads. If you are sitting at your desk or on your couch, or just on your phone, the site will work much better than it did before, and load fast. We are still working on improving the experience even further in the months to come, but we wanted to launch this as quickly as we could.


3) Welcome! We detailed and got a new paint job!


The homepage is bright, crisp and clean. We wanted the first page users saw to look beautiful, so that when a new guest arrives and is debating whether to join, they see a beautiful doorway, and they walk right in. We can also use this newly minted front page to showcase a Ride of the Month winner or other community related news and announcements.


4) Gun Cabinet will be featured on the site


You can show off your Gear, You can post pictures in your cabinet and share it with others.


5)Social Media Connect


Users will be able to register with Facebook meaning faster legitimate registrations.


Let me know if you have any concerns. I will be here to help with the transition and any issues there may be.


Once we go live on Monday am I will post a feedback thread for questions, bugs, and to help you guys learn the new site. There will be tweaks that need to be made so please standby and be paitent for updates.[/color]


Thanks,
Jeff

Not many check this forum.

To get the most visibility it should go on the Pot Bellied Stove Forum. Most of the Cannon forum guys won't see it except on the Cannon and Mortar Forum. Same with the Trappers on the Trapping Forum tho we don't have very many trappers posting anymore.

I'm a low-tech redneck. don't need all the froo-froo. plain, simple, and slow are fine by me. if it just works.

fetch the hammer maggie-they's a bee on the baby's head!

there's a place on this earth my people call home, hills & hollers everywhere & lots of room to roam.

we're noted for our hard times on God's greatest creation, we're the people of the hillbilly nation.

Heya guys, we ran a little long.

We will try to get as much done today as we can and do the rest tomorrow am.

We ran into a 3-hour outage and killed our schedule.

Note We will be doing tweaks this week and over the next 48 hours so this is not the final version.

Punch List of items pending:
- Homepage setup
- Support sections
- Some graphics, formatting
- Subforum icons
- possible permissions and user groups
- renaming sections.

I will update as we find more and make progress.
