Thanks Don, I'll figure it out, just something different I guess.

No Mustangs at the moment.
And where are the banner ads? I miss seeing Rocketman and LowLife up there...

1973 Mustang Grande 351C 2V, built on the very last production day (July 6, 1973) for Grande's.
When ceating a post I can only add 10 pics. Can that numer be increased?

Btw, thanks for the maintenance etc but why was this upgrade neccesary? And have I missed the announcement?

How many photos do you think would be good. The number can be increased.

ETA: I have upped the number to 25 per post.

You can sort using the filter on the top bar of on a forum but not per thread.

Those are the filters that you can use to set how you are seeing the threads.

Where is the "Stop ruining the forum with ads" button?

Edit: found it in prefs! Thanks for having that option as I would have otherwise left. This crap drives me nuts!

Thanks Admins, however I used the filter to set the order which worked at the time. When I went back to My Album, the order had reverted back. Can I suggest a "Save" button after "Filter". In this case, I particularly wanted to "tell a story" with the pictures.

I hate to admit it but I haven’t been on the site in a while. You know me, that friend that calls once in a while, always needin mupthin 😂 so I had no idea that change was a comin. Suddenly I start getting forum active updates and I’m like man, more stuff in my box, I didn’t sign up for this.
Well sir, I have been more engaged than ever I think, commenting, learning, I think I shared my first picture the other day.
Guess I’m trying to say I love the changes 👍
That update feature keeps me involved, I think it’s great.

Thanks

Is anyone using an app on their phone for this forum?
I searched on here but haven’t seen anything about it.
Thanks!

I don't think we have an app at the moment but it should work very nicely on a phone or tablet. The forum theme is designed to be responsive for phone use.

Agreed. I'd rather use a browser on responsive sites rather than install an app for each site.

I used the forum on my phone and it's great. No issues. Fast. I can't remember how I set it up, but I have standalone icon to launch it. The Icon looks like 7173 decals we purchased awhile back.

What happened to the "WTB" section? Looks like it disappeared.

WTB has been condensed into the classified section...there are now colored prefix tags that you select when posting a classified ad. They are searchable as well! The problem is that they are new and no body is using them yet!
