  1. Roger that! Tucker and Hannity are my favorites!
  2. There isn't anything in our settings that could make it log off in the middle of posting. You can try hitting ctrl + F5 to clear your browser cache but other than that, it almost has to be something with the PC or browser. Mike, did it completely sign you out or did you get bounced out of the post your were making - back to the index page maybe?
  3. Hey guys! I added a new forum feature to the forums today! It is called Tutorials! You can now add tutorials and how-to's into this section by category...this will help preserve them for future reference! The cool thing is that you can move posts over to the tutorials section to save time and typing! I set up some basic categories but if you see something that needs added, let me know! Here is the link (It's also in the nav bar up top) If you Tutorialize an existing post that is not yours, please be sure to change the author to the actual author of the post! https://7173mustangs.c
  4. OK, I double checked and there are no settings that would force log outs. It would have ot be something with your browser privacy settings like clearing all cookies on exit or cookies turned off. I cannot reproduce this...I stay logged in as long as let it wait with the forum opened or closed.
  5. Hey guys, just a quick note to thank Ohio Mustang Supply for continuing to help support the forums by advertising with us! Don and Erin have been with us since day 1 and it would be hard to name anyone more knowledgeable about parts for our cars! Please be sure to check out Ohio Mustang Supply when you need parts and pass their name along when you see others asking for Mustang parts! Please, give all of our sponsors a shot before you shop elsewhere! Thank you! https://ohiomustang.com/
  6. I will have to investigate...I haven't been logged out yet. I do know that it will log you out if you login on a different device at the same time.
  7. We are up to 9 Mustangs in the Garage! Be sure to check them out and add yours while you are there!!
  8. I added an option to "Mark As Solved" to several forums! You'll see it in the General Talk forum as well as the Tech Forums. So if you make a post and someone gives you the correct or best answer, you can mark it as such! It also gives the member that answered correctly a little tally count in his post profile (kinda like reputation) So it is both a fun and helpful little feature to keep in mind! You'll see the link next to the Quote link in the enabled forum posts!
  9. July 2020 marked 10 years for 7173Mustangs.com! That is a pretty nice landmark for any internet site considering all of the competition out there anymore! Facebook is probably the number one forum killer on the web today…it’s fast, easy and just about everyone is already using it. But Facebook has several flaws that should keep it from ever killing a forum…for one, Facebook’s search feature is terrible! You can barely find a post you made 2 days ago on any busy FB group! Another flaw is that the post/thread architecture is hard to follow and posts get lost easily! Thirdly, there are just
  10. Yeah, it's a shame...Facebook now has probably several dozen 71-73 pages that offer quick info but not much more! They just keep thinning the forum traffic. With this new software, we have a referral system that could be useful and fun! Each member gets a unique referral link to send to friends...when the friends join the forum, your referral count goes up! The system will track who has the most referrals just for fun! But it wouldn't hurt to grab your referral link and send it out or post it on Facebook pages (where allowed) and see if we can get the forum jumping again!! Your link
  11. The Community Member Map is back!! https://7173mustangs.com/forums/communitymap/
  12. I don't think it's the format...I think it is Facebook and Covid mainly! Facebook has been very active because it is easy to use and most everyone uses it already! Problem is that it is mostly shallow discussion and topics disappear after a few days and here are a ton of trolls! Who knows if the info you ask for is correct! Covid is also keeping everyone from car shows and maybe making them bored with the hobby (and the forums) in general.
  13. We now have a brand new feature called the Garage! It is similar to the old garage we had on Mybb but this version is much more powerful and easier to use! You can add tons of images, upload a Marti Report if you have one and you can any modifications to the car that you have done in detail along with their own images! This system also adds a Garage tab in your profile and a badge on your post profile that links to your garage to make it easier for members to check your car out! One note on adding modifications...you can add them after you add your vehicle to the garage. You then go b
  14. That sounds perfect! We are using meatball menu on PC and hamburger menu on mobile, LOL! I think the 3 dots are actually called ellipsis but meatballs are way better! Thanks!
