  Update to the Forum Rules
Posted by: rocketfoot - 12-10-2019, 06:26 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

Just a quick addition to the Rules Page...

It has kinda been an unwritten rule for years that when you place a classified ad, your item(s) must be priced.  We have now added this rule to the official forum rules so that everyone knows and it is unarguable.  We simply do not want to turn the classifieds into a ebay type auction site!  If you place a classified ad, make sure your item is priced.  Also, no business ads...for fairness and respect of our supporting forum vendors, anyone wishing to list items for their business must purchase vendor status to do so.  Prices are fair and spots are limited!  PM me if you need more info.

Thanks everyone!
Rocket

  The NEW 71-73 Wikipedia
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-18-2019, 05:10 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (23)

I have been working on a new 71-73 Wikipedia to replace our aging data pages and I gotta say...it is looking GOOD!!

I do need some help!  I have the site laid out and some content populated but I need some better content from you Mustang experts!!  I'd love to see a few members take on a section or two and help write some great content to fill the pages.  We, of course, want it to be factual and correct info.  I have been stuffing whatever I can find into he pages but I need some help!

The new Wiki also includes a 71-73 Registry that automatically populates a spreadsheet after you fill out the registry form!  It is going to be a cool site and hopefully it can be the definitive 71-73 Mustang information archive! 

Take a look and see if you can provide some content for me to copy and paste into the pages!  There are still many sections that need filler including Engine sections, Convertibles, Sportsroofs, Sprints, T5's and much more!  I know we have some experts around here and I know we can get this done!!

  2020 Calendar Photo Request!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-15-2019, 03:54 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (39)

It's that time once again!  Time for me to create a spectacular calendar that features the best Mustang photos from the pages of 7173Mustangs.com!

So, if you had the opportunity to take some awesome photos over the summer, post them up and I'll see if I can use them!  I can't guarantee that I can use every pic posted but I try!!

I'll use the images to make a sweet 2020 calendar and then offer it to the membership for sale.  All proceeds benefit forum operation costs so it is a great way to get a cool calendar for your home or office while supporting your favorite Mustang website!!  WIN-WIN!!

So lets get those photos coming!  I need them to be as large and high resolution as possible.  If can't get large pics to upload, email them to me at: rocketfoot@7173mustangs.com

Lets keep the calendar fresh too!  If we used your photo last year, submit a new photo!



I have been saving up hot rod pinup girl pics all year long too so there will be an amazing (but tasteful) girly calendar this year too!  You have to be a VIp member to purchase it however!  So if you are not a VIP, be sure to check out our VIP packages here!


  User Map is back!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-14-2019, 04:56 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (7)

I got the user map working on the forums again!  It's always fun while it lasts, but Google has changed their API so many times that it breaks the forum plugin!  This version is using a different map ap so maybe it will last longer! 

If you want to try it out, you can go to your USER CP, scroll down and click on USER MAP on the left side.  The map will come up and you can just grab the marker and drop it in your neighborhood!  After you are happy with the marker placement, go to the bottom of the map and click the check box for confirmation and the update button will appear.  Click UPDATE and you are all done!  You can visit the map from the FUN STUFF tab up above or from the user map link on the placement map in your user cp.

Like I said...no guarantees on how long he map will last but it is pretty fun while it lasts! 

For safety and security...I don't advise placing your marker exactly on your house!  Just put it somewhere in your home town!

Have fun and let me know if you have any questions or problems!


  Update Your User Titles
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-09-2019, 08:24 AM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

This is completely optional! 

Click on your username at the top left and then click EDIT PROFILE from the drop down menu.  On your profile page, you can add a new user title in the field on the top right and then click UPDATE PROFILE at the bottom! 

Done!  Please keep the titles short...if they are too long, it will mess up forum margins.

These titles will show up in the hover cards that appear around the forum when ever your username is hovered over as well as below your avatar in the post profiles.

Again, this is optional and just for fun!!

Any Q's...let me know! thumb


  New Forum Awards System!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-09-2019, 08:07 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (2)

With the new software updates, the old awards system became unstable so I had to upgrade to the newest version...in the process, we had to wipe out all the old awards that were issued.  The good news is that the new system has a request feature that allows you to request your awards and the Staff can approve them fairly quickly! 

You can go to the Awards page from the FUN STUFF tab in the nav bar at the top of the page (or click the link below) and stat requesting awards!  You can also view your awards in your USER CP under the Awards tab on the left!

If you think we need a new award or category, let me know!!


  Anyone good with building Wordpress Sites?
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-05-2019, 07:39 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (5)

I am working on a Wordpress site that is attached to the forums...it will be the 71-73 Mustang Wikipedia to replace our antiquated forum data pages!!  I need a volunteer helper that knows their way around the Wordpress admin panel to help add content to each page!  The info on the current forum data pages doesn't seem to copy and paste real well so it will need formatted to the new site.  After the site is done, it should be pretty cool as well as educational! 

If your interested, PM me and let me know...send some references or links of any WP sites you may have worked on.  Doesn't have to be just 1 person, we can use multiple folks if the knowledge is out there!


  ALERTS!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 10-31-2019, 09:05 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (13)

We have a new forum feature called ALERTS! 

Alerts will display certain forum events such as when you receive a reply to a post or when you get rep, etc...

There is a link in the nav bar up top near the USER CP link...it will show you your alerts and you can also delete them from the pop up or you can visit the alerts page from your USER CP.  You can also select which alerts you get from the Alert Settings link in the USER CP. 

I also installed "Mentions" so you can type a members name in a post with an @ symbol in the front (@username) and it will link their profile and send a alert that they have been mentioned!  

Just something fun added to the forum but also useful so you don't miss any Mustang action!!

Thanks and enjoy!!
