In order to rectify a few problems the forum has been having, and to allow for future progress, I have updated the software to Xenforo 2.0 Beta 6.
Only addons that work with this software will function. Thus, some functionality will be lost, albeit hopefully temporarily. As replacement 2.0 compatible addons become available, I will install them. Please be patient! Thanks!

Loggen on about an hour ago and thought WTH (heck)? Looks like more options/features. What can you tell me about the "jump to new" and "watch" tabs. Perhaps they have always been there and never noticed them until the new background color change.
I also noticed our avatar no longer shows our location. This was handy for answering many questions (IMO).

As the addons become 2.0 compatible, I will buy and install them. I am as new to the new version as you are. Feel free to look around.

You'll probably get complaints about the changes, but let me be the first to thank you for the work you put into this site. It's a thankless job - hardly anyone says anything positive when it works, but when it doesn't, look out.... It's the first site I go to when I open my browser!

Nels,
I think the new layout is awesome, better than the old in many ways. Yes, there will be some glitches along the way, but we just need to be patient. If everyone takes a little time to look around they will catch on quickly. Thank you for your tireless efforts to make this place better.

Click on your name / avatar top right. A box opens. Down at the bottom > Log Out. It worked for me.

Nels,
Sorry if my post came across as a complaint, it was not at all ment to be such. I was merely indicating a aviators location is helpful for regional questions for those who wish to share where they live. Your efforts are always appreciated sir.
Sincerely, Paco

Thanks Nels, truly appreciate your efforts and the culture of this board.

BTW, the photo posting is still flawless. I just added a couple and it is as "eazy peezy" as before. Photos are critical to our stories and queries.

EDIT: I also edited a post from yesterday as the OP. It worked well and let me change the title a bit. Obviously, I am using it on this edit as well and what you see is what you get.

Looking pretty good to me! Also I agree that it seems faster. The people on the backside of this forum do not get the recognition they should, So I would like to say Thank you to all of you guys!

The hiccup about waiting moderator approval is not new with this update, I had this in the previous version, as did others. I recall a moderator post stating they did not know why this happens.

As a modeartor on two truck/4x4 sites, I understand a lot of the time and effort involved in keeping things running.

Nels,

Thanks for all you have done to make this place what it is.

As a disabled Vet, with a small fixed income, I can't help financially, I appreciate that this is a site without a paid membership. If there is anything I can do time wise, I would love to help.

George

In a short while, all the coders will have the addon versions for 2.0. I know we miss the functionality, but please try to be patient. I will install the new versions as soon as I can buy them. This is a MAJOR upgrade (2.0) that only happens every few years.

So far, the mobile web version is working pretty well. I do miss Tapatalk though. No rush, but if it can be done, I'd appreciate it. Thanks for keeping the board running!
