Yeah, it'll be back at some time. It'll be a little different. For now I put up a generic EXD text for the forum and am trying to get it on the front page too.

its some what confusing to me right now. like where is the menu tool bar or navigation toolbar? how do i see the list of forums so that we can pick the forum to browse in?

EDIT: I CAN NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN SEE THE FORUM LIST AND ALL

i tried to go and read a thread that i had started and replied to, so i went to my page, the statistic tab isnt there anymore. that is what i use to use to read the threads that i replied in. is that something that is gone now or is it coming back as well?

must have been a lot work to make this switch, good luck and thanks for taking the time to make the changes!!

So far I have heard no one say much to the positive, just ***** about it. Seriously guys, other than Cory offering to help and me just telling of the bugs I've seen everyone is *****ing like James is going to leave the site like this. If I were him I would leave it like this so you all would stop *****ing about it all the damn time. Let the man work on this when he can and be patient... damn.

Personally, i find it different. We get used to see the old scheme everywere where people uses VB. This skin brings something new.

U'll like it in a couple of days !

Keep the good works James.

No big deal Aaron. I knew most people would complain about it. There's no going back though, soon vB3 won't be supported at all and then the site would just always stay the same until the end of time, and that's no good. I do appreciate people voicing their opinions about it though as long as they are accompanied by realistic suggestions. And as hard as it is to believe, I do have a real job to go to sometimes too.

Yeah, people complained a lot a long long time ago in 2004 when we switched from vB2 to vB3. It's hard to change once you've gotten used to something.

well crap. my [code] tags didn't work.
lets try this

<head>
<title>ElantraXD - UPGRADES IN PROGRESS</title>
</head>
<body>
<div align="center"><img src=""></div>
<br><br>
<p align="center">Forums undergoing upgrades. Please <a href="https://www.elantraxd.com/forums">click here to go to the forums</a>.</p>
</body>
</html>




I'd save that as an index.htm(l) in the root www or public_html (not sure what the server uses) folder for the time being until you get all the db bugs worked out. A little friendlier than the php script errors. I want to say the .htm(l) file should take precedence over the .php but if I'm wrong you can prolly rename index.php to like indexb.php. I don't think that would mess with the scripting. If you need help let me know. If you ever need help with hosting I can help there too - I have a dedicated server. Finally made the switch from a VPS.

Thanks for the suggestions Kawi! I've got a pretty basic redirect working now (would have had it up earlier if I didn't have to go to work).

The /forums/ page will become the main page in time, the errors on the main page earlier today were from the old vBadvanced system that EXD used in the past (that we no longer need with the new vB CMS).

I might need help with some CSS stuff over the next week or so as I try to make changes to make people happy. As far as hosting goes, I'm quite happy with my guys, though I've thought about my own dedicated server, I'm just not experienced enough with that stuff and I probably don't want the headache right now, haha. Thanks though!

Sorry for the venting people. It just seemed like all the members were just *****ing and not noticing thaty James had told us the change was coming and to expect different. Yes a lot of features are gone/disabled, we just have to get them back up. And yes, James does have a real people job so he can't get to it all now. I think we should just keep pestering Internet Jesus to fix the site on his own and thanking James for at least getting some form of the site running for the time being.

I'm not 100% happy with it right this minute, it's going to take some modifications. However, it's the next evolution of vBulletin (which in mind offers the best forum software out there) so that's what it has to be.


Looks far better, nice upgrade!

Thanks!

The Car field will get back into the postbit (the postbit is the template that has the member name, join date, location, etc) once I get the chance. Definitely.

I might get rid of the rep though, we discussed why in Matt's thread earlier last week.

Right, I've been posting about vB4 for months now and got very little response about it. Oh well.

This is typical of the v-bulletin takeovers. Currently, the site looks too sanitized & too generic.
My bike sites suffered the same fates for awhile until we got our legs under us and made some changes.
The white background is hard on the eyes and the current formatting is impersonal.
Many of the reasons you join a site are missing but that will all change in time.
It took time to develop the old site and this will take some time as well.
A softer background color is the 1st order of business though!

That's why there are pretty women and pretty cars in pretty magazines.
And pretty elantras in pretty brochures.
And pretty pictures of members rides (c.o.t.m.)
We likes the visuals!

the old style was my fav vb style on the web. but this seems decent enough so far. its just different, and as we all know, change is bad. any change, ever. things should be the same as they were. I shouldnt even be on a computer. i should be etching this into the dirt with a rock! But first things first, i think we really need the car info back, that was REALLY helpful to know someones type of vehicle and year when they ask for help

is there a thread somewhere on this? im not a fan of these "comments" as much if theres actually going to be discussion. As comments are not a thread and do not use my new thread setup. Newest first / 50 per page etc. anyway, i noticed the whats new and new posts are the same link, is that going to stay, seems like that move came from the department of redundancy department.

Ah i found it, you have one in announcments and here in VBcomments. Still getting used to the changes.
and i see you can view this as a thread or as the mini -comments section from the homepage

since you are running two threads, one here and one in the announcments section, where do you want comments, i assume here as its called "vb comments" heh

*ive edited this post like 8 times. i need to just edumakate myself with the site.. then post .. but wheres the fun in that :P

random thoughts.
under forums the little chat circlle bubbles that change color if theres new stuff in the thread or not are lame. i like the fact the icons change i just think there lame icons

i duno how much it wil lget used, but its cool that each forum has its own RSS

i like the side bar under forums that you can hide etc. but i would love for new forum posts to be at the TOP. or at least if you want to keep the cms articles at the top as a news source, they should at least be above blogs. definitely a cool feature though

can anybody add events onto the calender?

under home, can mods get that Quick Moderation or whatever that was called back? it was cool to know if there was stuff awaiting approval right from the home page.

Can we get the large push button back that was on every mod page that just bans bob with one click? i think that was a great feature and helped out the community a great dead ;)

i noticed that things are not updating on the front site that rapidly.. maybe 30 seconds to a min.. maybe less, maybe more. I noticed person A. posted and on the font site it says they did. Then person B. posts and it still says person A was the last person to post. wait a bit and refresh, no change. after about a minute it finally updates. duno if its consistent or anything, havnt done alot of testing yet, but i know the old system was on the split second.
