  April COTM Winner!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 04-01-2011, 09:50 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (14)

  Spell Checker for IE Users
Posted by: rocketfoot - 04-01-2011, 06:30 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (2)

Had a few questions about spell checker so I thought I would address them in one post. For those of you that use Firefox or several of the other modern browsers, spell check is done inline on the fly as you type your post. If you use one of these browsers, you don't need to read this thread any further!

Now, for those that still use Internet Explorer...I have added a button to check spelling when posting. You have to type your post and then click the button above that looks like this: [Image: spellCheck.gif]

This will open a new window and allow you to correct spelling mistakes. IE just won't do inline spell check like Firefox will. If you want that, you'll have to switch to Firefox!

If you still insist on using IE, you can also download this addon that will add a similar spell check to your browser:


This addon will allow you to run the spell checker on any thing you type in on IE. You activate it from the right click menu, IE Tools menu or you can add a button to your tool bar from the tool bar customize menu!

Hope this helps but again...I highly recommend switching to FireFox in order to use this site the way it was designed!

Hi Folks!

Just wanted to remind everyone that the Weekly Fun Question for this week WILL be posted on time tomorrow (if the Creek does not rise) at approximately 12 Noon (CST).

Hey guys! Please welcome American Muscle to our small group of valued advertisers!

[Image: mustangtuning_2151_0]

American Muscle offers mostly aftermarket parts for late model Mustangs (79 to current) as well as some really cool Mustang novelties, collectibles and apparel!

They don't specialize in 71-73 parts, but I was able to get them a nice ad spot on the Portal Home Page! So please, pop over to the home page and click on their ad button! Show them some good old fashioned 7173Mustang.com support! Big Grin



  News Feed Added
Posted by: rocketfoot - 03-22-2011, 09:53 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (14)

Hey guys...I added a news feed from Mustang Daily so we can keep up on the latest Mustang News! It will appear in the "Other Years of Mustangs" forum daily and is posted by the Forum Bot.

Does anyone know of any other good Mustang feeds we can use? I'd like to add a vintage mustang feed also! RSS Feed posters can also help our page ranks drastically! Big Grin

  Delayed Weekly Fun Question - - Again!!
Posted by: cobra3073 - 03-18-2011, 03:36 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (2)

Good Day All!

Well, I am going to have to delay posting the Weekly Fun Question (WFQ) again this week as I will be heading to Huntsville, Alabama early tomorrow morning for a Tae Kwon Do Masters seminar (my 11-year old Son).

Instead of posting tomorrow (Saturday), I will tentatively be posting the WFQ on Sunday (March 20, 2011) at approximately Noon (CST).

I am sorry for any inconvenience!


  Show Season Calendar!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 03-17-2011, 07:57 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (5)

Spring is in the air and that means car show season is almost upon us!

Don't forget to post all the car shows and Mustang events that you know of in the 7173 Calendar! The link is under the MORE tab above!

You can also post in the Car Show and Events section for specific regional events and possible 7173 Meets! Unfortunately, there is no way to link the to sources due to the regional aspect but it is easy to post in both spots! The calendar events will show a few days before the event in the upcoming events box at the bottom of the forum index page.

Nothing new here...this is all built in features! I'm just pointing them out so we can take full advantage of them! Big Grin

  Delayed Weekly Fun Question
Posted by: cobra3073 - 03-11-2011, 03:06 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

Good Day All!

Due to my "required" (per the First Lady) attendance at a seminar relative to my 11 year old Son's School from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on tomorrow, I will not be available to post the Weekly Fun Question (WFQ) at Noon (CST).

I still plan on posting the question but it will probably be closer to 5:00 pm (CST) instead.

Again, the WFQ for this week will tentatively be posted at approximately 5:00 pm (CST) on Saturday, March 12, 2011.

I am sorry for any inconvenienceSmile.
