Update 10/23: The upgrade is complete. Please use the Forum Support area to report any issues you may come across, and we will make efforts to address them.

Please note that at first the forum may seem slow - this is due to a number of background processes (indexing, etc) that are still running, and should subside as the day progresses.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update 10/20: Upgrade is currently planned for Monday 10/23.

Update 10/18: theme has been finalized. Upgrade should happen in a few days.

Update 10/6: current estimated time for upgrade is towards the end of next week.

Hello everyone,

I am excited to announce that we will soon be upgrading the forum here at Adam's. The new version of this software will provide our community with a number of new features, as well as performance and security enhancements.

The forum will be offline for about an hour during this process, though we don't yet have a hard date that this will be taking place. The upgrade is primarily being handled by the support and design staff at Invision, and I will update this post as they provide additional information.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Gerry

Thanks guys.

 

The design team estimates that the new theme will be ready by midweek next week. The software upgrade will begin shortly after we approve the new design. I will try to get a preview of the design posted beforehand.

Looking forward to this update! It's been long overdue, but with everything else going on, it's hard to find the time to make sure things go smoothly.

 

A HUGE thank you to Gerry and Chris for working with the developers and taking on this project to get our forum updated and better than ever! We truly do appreciate the time you spend here on top of your normal day jobs, and I couldn't have done it without you!

Sorry for the delay, everyone. We were going back and forth with the design team for a bit, but other obligations pulled me away from working on this. We just approved the design, so they should be moving forward with the upgrade soon.

 

We ended up going with a more modern take on the current skin in order to keep things somewhat similar and reduce any re-learning curve. I've attached a preview of it applied to their test forum. The final version may differ slightly and we will have the ability to make tweaks to it once the upgrade is complete.

Thanks for all the hard work, having been in that position before I can understand the work you are putting in. The countless hours and sleepless nights to make things right. Thanks!

Please consider moving the quote, report, more reply options, and post buttons towards the middle of the screen. When scrolling on IPad those buttons are right in the path of the right handed scrolling action. Regardless, looking forward to your enhancements. Thanks!

Looks like they are aiming for Monday to do the upgrade.

 

From there we will see how the new theme reacts on different browsers and devices. It's likely that iPad bug is inherent to the current version since it's so old.

I may be the only one, but I liked having the black background I had. Any chance of having that theme back??

Not sure if this is something I can change in my personal settings, but when I click on "unread content" and then click on a topic that has multiple pages, it should go directly to the last page instead of the first page.  I believe this was how it was set up previously.

Fixed it.  I edited the Unread Content stream to go to the last unread post in the thread.  Try it out and let me know if it is not working for you.

I would say that the round avatars are consistent with the new layout.  There are lots of circles in this version.  Like button is round, Subforum icons are round...

And now I just found that if you click on the little black dot or star next to the thread title, it takes you to the first unread post.
