    Default GMTC Update Today

    Ok, I've spent about 6 hours today updating the website, there are still a dozen or so things to fix, but just thought I would make a post letting everyone know that most of the updates are done.

    What's everyone think?

    - Newest version of forum software
    - Lots of updated features, better methods to post, more security, better navigation, better gallery system
    - Backend was cleaned up a bit
    - Blogs are much easier to post in and follow your favorite user
    - Much easier to see what's going on in the community, groups, albums, blogs, messages,etc.
    - Easier to do add-ons in the future



    Still need to:
    - Complete the Garages
    - Update all of the landing pages
    - Redo the logo and graphics
    - A bunch of small stuff left to do.

    There may be some ability to make a different skin option, but that won't come around until after the rest of the bugs get fixed.

    I will reserve judgment for now. I dont know if i like some of the look since reading sometimes is harder since it isnt just a one line type. But looking good and it seems to run a bit faster as well..
    And by more security you mean harder for spammers? I do kind of miss the Experience page since that gives you a way to see a bit of who you are talking to, since there can be people who jump on write a thread and then dont come back for a year. As well as those who jump on and write either an inflamatory or just a rude post because they feel like it. And they run off as soon as there isnt the support of their negative views.

    I am missing when you click on the users name on each post and see how many points to the next level.

    Ok, here is a sum of what people have asked for.

    - A different skin that does not fill the screen (Fixed Width - this now is fluid width). I can do that.
    - The User Experience I can update for this version. Just have to get to it later tonight or maybe tomorrow.
    - The USER CP is now in the upper right-hand corner and called "SETTINGS". You will see SETTINGS and MY PROFILE. You can adjust different things for different purposes now.

    Yes, this new site is now faster. Yes, better security does make it harder for spammers.

    What else, this is a dialog here, let's here.
