    Quick question - site navigation

    Hi and sorry if this was addressed somewhere, I didn't see a thread about navigation or new site update FAQs, but the below was enough of a problem I wanted to ask about it. On a smart phone, how does one quickly click to the very last page of any thread? Right now one has to click the thread...

    ANNOUNCEMENT Board Update (Update - Completed)

    Just a heads up - the board will probably be down for a bit tonight around 9:30pm or so for a software update and an implementation of a couple of things. No major layout/functional changes, so no additional learning curves this time around. I'll put together an outline of new features once...

    "Ignore Thread" Function Now Available

    This has been implemented, and here's a quick rundown on how it works: The ignore button is located in the upper right, or in the center on the mobile layout: Hitting that button places the thread into the ignore category. If you've placed any of the threads in the top discussion bar on...

    Where is the twitter feed?

    There's no twitter feed on this new version of the forum. Is that a customizable thing? Anything I need to do to bring that back?

    Ignore Thread/User Functions - Requests

    So there isn't a 3rd party Add-on that covers what I'm really looking for based on previous suggestions for the "Ignore Thread" function, which isn't a feature included in the software. The previous version on the old forum worked just OK, but I know there were some issues people had that I...

    2020 NFL Picks Contest - Quick Heads Up

    I'm working on setting that back up and hope to have it ready for Monday. Had a couple of people ask about it and we're definitely doing it, it was a lot of fun last season. So you'll see an alert on the top navbar just like last year to make your picks. The little toggle in the slideout bar...

    OT: Reactions - Which ones stay, which ones go?

    The current layout only accommodates the number that we have in place, as any additional ones will cause them to wrap and break the layout on mobile. I know we had a discussion on the previous version about trying to condense these anyway, so I feel like the current number we have is probably a...

    ANNOUNCEMENT Welcome Back!!

    I apologize for the extended outage. Some of the features of the previous forum were run on a 3rd-party add-on that had 3-million+ rows in it and it required a second import tool that literally ran all day yesterday and through last night. One of which was for the reactions...

    IOS not staying logged in

    So for about a month now I have to sign in every time I click away from the page on my iPad despite checking the stay logged in button. So if I switch screens to go play a game I log in again, not even closing the browser just not being active on it. At first I thought that must be something new...

    Other Forum Top Discussion Bar

    Spent the last week or so going through and putting together a few different options for this and finally decided that the top bar made the most sense and I optimized it for mobile so you can swipe through, etc. This bar will update as new posts are added in another forum, as well as when...
