Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Joneser and the support team working on testing the upgrades we've been speaking of lately ...

I would like to make the announcement that we here at The Q Joint will be installing the upgrade to our forum on November 23rd, in the later hours (approx. 10 PM) until the upgrade is complete.

You will not be able to log into the forum until the process is complete. We have been looking at this installed on another server, looking for anything that needs attention. We feel we've found most of the items that need tweaked and are ready to go live with it.

You will notice a slight change in the skin, but it's still the same. The layout will be somewhat different, but easy to navigate. The User Control Panel is nicely laid out. Our advertisers will have a banner now... just t name a few simple things.

There are lots of other improvements to come after this upgrade is in place.

We are excited to have this coming next week and hope to see some positive feedback on it. Please use this thread to make any suggestions when the upgrade is complete.

Thank You to all those that have been able to donate to the forum to help make this and other needed improvements to the the forum. We feel this is truly the Premier Website Dedicated to Outdoor Cooking and look forward to seeing everyones posts in the new upgrade.

Bring it on!

Do our post counts start over at 0 with the new one? Or will all of the current posts come along for the ride? Would be a shame to lose all of the words that are here.

Everything will transfer over...no problem there. You guys are gonna like the new look. Remember, if you find a bug, squish it by posting here or sending a PM to any of the staff.

Tonight's the night...
Don't forget that we'll be unavailable for a while this evening, we should only be down for a few hours at most if everything goes as planned.
Once the forums are up and running, I'll start a Bug thread to report any functional problems.

I think I have a Jenn You Whine bug here. Under my Avatar it says there are a certain number of new posts, but when I click it I get far fewer. refreshed several times and still does it. Hmmmmm

In this particular case it said there were 7 new posts, but displayed 4.

I have noticed that when I am NOT LOGGED IN, there are many more posts on the "todays posts" column. As soon as I log in, it only goes back about 2 hours. And searching back through the general forum area is a pain in the tukus.

Where does it say today's posts?

I am with you and have already voiced my request for an "active threads" button.

I see now. It only considers a post new if it was made since your last log in.

we need a "today's posts for members that are already log in right away.

Upper middle lefthand menu bar. There is much room for some "streamlining", but all in all, I do like it, and appreciate the efforts of those involved in the undertaking. Thank you.

Yes. It changes to new posts when you are logged in and it only lists threads with posts you haven't read.

Ok I figured this one out. It is only displaying the threads that contain new posts, but some may contain more than one new post in them. In other words if all the new posts were all in the same thread, it would only display that one thread. Duh!

That's what I said in the other thread --- I'm sooo confused
