      Very nice. Definitely a lot faster than the old one - and I think it's a newer and more up-to-date forum script too.

        Will someone please post the old URL? I overwrote it changing and saving my password. Now, I can't access old subscriptions, private messages, etc.

        Thanks!

      It's not "many" Willie is "the old folks". You are getting old and so change
      becomes very uncomfortable. :-)

        Bad move on having the forum start again from 0 posts. Looses WF's credibility and makes one feel like they're missing out. IE: If I hang around here, I feel I'm missing out on all the wonderful stuff at /forum.

            Roger

            I used [ size=6 ] as per usual and the code showed. Then I changed to [ size=+2 ] and still code showed. Same with [ color=red ]. Of course, I did with no spaces.

            Here's a test: [size=+2][color=red]TEST[/color=red][/size=+2]

            EDIT: Note that only [ b ] worked

          Andre - no disrespect at all - but what's wrong with a nice change of pace? A new fresh forum? I think it's wonderful.

          Besides, you can go to www.warriorforum.com/forum and get old posts for now.

                I've been on other vbulletin sites before and one of the issues is having to log back in if you stay in one place to long. If your writing a post that takes a while and you click Post don't be surprised if you're asked to log in again. So it might be a good idea to copy and paste you reply into notepad because every once in a while vbulletin will log you in and some how misplace what you just entered. If you entered a lot it's a pain. Same thing if you read one of the longer WSO and read some of the replies. Don't be surprised if you look up and see your no longer logged in.

                The other area I liked better before was the WSO. Now the name of the person the WSO belongs to is under the Title instead of out to the right. I used to scroll down the page just looking for a persons name. Also when you click a link it stays the same color. The old forum it changed color. That was another way I located things I was considering to buy.

                By the way I just clicked on post and guess what happened -

                1. You do not have permission to perform this action. Please refresh the page and login before trying again.

                Yes when I followed the above instruction everything I typed was gone.

                This is the 3nd time this has happened to me in this session.

                I here a sucking sound.

                  I said it sucks. But WAIT!

                  I think it's only a temporary thing.

                  Once Warriors start exercising their moderator privileges, some of the inane threads in the main forum will go away.

                  Okay -- so that's about moderation. True.

                  So I should take it back, I guess.

                  Seriously, the features, the speed, the blogs, the web2.0 stuff -- awesome.

                  But I still miss my stars, LOL.

                    Hi Kevin,

                    I don't know about using the size+2 thingy, but to get size to work by defining the number just use -

                    [ size="4" ]text here[ /size ] (without spaces)

                    to test - test text

                    I don't know about the colour but i have seen it being used already...are you using the 'advanced' WYSIWYG thing? That has colour selection on it -

                  There are 2 ways round this John. One is why bother logging in and out each time you come here? If there is only you using the computer then when you login in, just don't logout when you go elsewhere. Next time you return you automatically get logged back in as the cookie didn't get removed. Make sure you have 'remember me' ticked.

                  The second one is keep logging in and out, but when you do login, again make sure the 'remember me' part is selected. This means you won't experience the 'cookie timeout' when you are reading long threads. That's why you constantly need to keep logging back in. It's a cookie problem. Selecting 'remember me' should fix it.

                  Unless you are using AOL browser - which sucks mightily - the above should solve your problem. Otherwise dump AOL and use IE or Firefox.

                  @ Bev If you go to your Edit Options in UserCp and scroll right to the bottom, select the Advanced WYSIWYG editor option and you'll get the full text box including a panel of emoticons show up when writing your post.

                  I'll add my vote to the yays!
                  Love VBulletin boards!

                  That last was a test for Kevin Rileys' benefit. The Advanced WYSIWYG in selection allows you to change size, font and colour so that should sort you out.

          The jury is still out here.

          Pros: Nice to see the avatars.

          Cons: Lost two WSOs that I opened yesterday. Can't get some BB Code (like colour and size) to work properly. Had a near heart failure this morning when I couldn't log in. Would have been nice to have had some advance warning.

          Hoping the Pros will soon make themselves more obvious.

            Pros: Nice to see the avatars.

            Cons: Lost two WSOs that I opened yesterday. Can't get some BB Code (like colour and size) to work properly. Had a near heart failure this morning when I couldn't log in. Would have been nice to have had some advance warning.

            Hoping the Pros will soon make themselves more obvious.
            eh - quit yer bitchin - this is COOL!!!

              Looks nice, except for losing all my private messages!
              A first batch had disappeared during the forum "reconstruction".
              Now they are ALL gone!!
              Wonder if they can be recooped from the old forum.
              I did not save them!

            Kevin, you can still put your WSOs from the other board into your signature here. That's what I did. I haven't posted my WSOs here, yet...but they are still working fine.

    I think this is the best config I've seen yet for a VB forum.

    I hope that the change doesn't chase people away.

    I have noticed over the years that every time a popular Snitz forum migrates to a shiny new platform, everyone loves all the new stuff and lots of new posters suddenly start to post, but the regulars tend to post way less, and after a few weeks the activity for the whole board falls way off and never returns to it's former glory.

    I really like the Warrior Forum a lot and I hope it doesn't change in a way that drives all the great conrtibutors away. One of the problems with VBulletin is the tendency to make you mad when your long post disapears due to the unexpected ending of your session.

    One thing I liked about the Snitz forum was the starkness of features. This made the content of the posts standout rather than the features of the forum software. I'm not sure, but I think that is the single biggest factor in losing contributors from forums that migrate away from Snitz.

    Dam, I just logged in and have been loving it. I need to get some actual work done but can't seem to log out for some strange reason. Great stuff.

  • It's certainly going to take some getting used to, but I think I like it.

    It really sucks that we can't bump WSO's anymore BUT the fact that we can use different fonts and images now and the fact that the WSO section will likely be getting more attention because of the new forum structure may more than compensate....at least I hope so!

    I definitely, definitely do like the new features and functions. I LOVE the fact that I can now see people and be seen. Very cool!

      Hey if an Old Geezer like me can make head way with this new thing-em-a-bob we have to work with I know all you young whipper snappers can master it to.

      I like the speed. Even my old puter started smoking the WF loaded so fast.

          I personally love the fact that new forum has all the functionality many of come to expect from forum software. Great job considering that admins had to migrate it!

    Wow, this is going to take some getting used to, but I definitely see the benefits. I am amazed at all the cool features. I will take a day or two to play around and become familiar with all the changes.
