      All,

      The new website will be coming online sometime in the next 48 hours. I’m expecting tomorrow (Tuesday) night. John, the designer, should be publishing here that he is about to do it, due to a short period of downtime.

      He should also be publishing on here a short list of things this may impact. From out conversation today it will mean that you will have to re-do your password. You will also have to re-upload your avatar.

      Rather than being a separate site, between the MVT website and the forum, it is all going to be under a new single site.

      Thanks.

      Max

      Great news. Looking forward to the redesign/simplicity!

      The new website will be going live tomorrow (Thursday) morning. There will be a period from approximately 10:00am to approximately 11:00am where both the forum and main website may be unavailable.
      Once the new site is live, the forum will be located on the main website – visitors to forum.maxvelocitytactical.com will be redirected to the main website.
      You may need to change your password on the new website – if you are not able to login use the “Forgot password” link to reset it. You may also need to re-upload your avatar image.
      If I have any other updates I will post them here.

      thanks

      FYI – both old bookmarks I have were redirected to an unrelated site. I found an alternate way in, just by searching and coming in the “front door” to the main site.

      This looks great. Especially the forum layout. It has the “standard” forum look and feel. Home page hits you when it loads.

      Hits…..
      HTML is not working on the video page, its showing the directory….

      Accommodations:
      Spelling?
      The Koo / Wink motel in Romney is affordable and popular with students.

      Location page is blank.

      Minor thing: can’t seem to find the “latest activity” section

      That might be important for keeping the forum active

      Thanks everyone for the feedback.

      @gamma – forum.maxveloictytactical.com is being redirected to the main site now. You may have caught it while the new settings were still being propagated, they should be working now.

      @trailman – fixed the videos page and the locations page. If someone could send me the correct spelling I’m happy to update it.

      @JohnnyMac – I added a link to Latest Activities under the Forum menu item.

      Please keep the bug reports coming – I’ll fix/update as quickly as possible.

      thanks

      I tried to go to the Alumni forum, but it wouldn’t let me access it. It said ” Cannot find directory”

        Alumni members need to have their membership re-assigned. I’m working on this now. Your Alumni membership has been updated – others will follow.

        thanks

        All Alumni members should now have access to the Alumni forum. Please let me know if this isn’t the case.

        thanks,

      There was a Current Affairs/News sub Forum which is now missing.

        I’m not sure why this forum didn’t make over but I am working on it. Will update as soon as I can.

        thanks

      In the Thread Who’s here? (Site Transition) inserted links do not appear in blue font, however they do appear in blue font in Activity.

      Several sub forums had further sub forums within them. For instance the The Armory – Gear and Equipment had specialty sub forums such as “Gear and Book Reviews” the content is still available if you conduct a search for specific title.

      Here is an example:

      Home › Forums › Gear and Book Reviews › TR Mini-Mil Transition Boot (TR115) Update w/Comparison to Mini-Mil Boot (TR103)

      The “Gear and Book Reviews” in above chain shows up when example Thread is observed, but it doesn’t exist as a linkable section.

      On a mobile device, the top banner that appears when you scroll up a little is way too big. Takes up nearly half my screen which is really annoying. Also, it’s very sensitive (jumps down from the smallest scroll or even when touching near top of screen). Not sure if that can be adjusted..

        I’ve modified the header on mobile devices to stick to the top of the page rather than the top of the screen. This way is scrolls out of view as you scroll down.

      I will post a thread depicting the procedures for customizing the activity options.

      Is anyone aware of any additional issues with our new MVT Forum?

      FYI…. it MIGHT be with my browser (FireFox) but the quick link in the browser never works as it lists maxvelocitytactical.comACTION I have to remove the “action” for it to work. I don’t know if anyone else is having this problem (has been happening since the transfer)

      …but the quick link in the browser never works…

      I need more information as I am not sure which link you are referring.
