    Is this working for you guys?

    Its raining outside and I have been doing some thinking, we have been living with this for a while, is this forum code working for you guys or do I push to change the system to Vbulletin (the old code).

    I am happy to do this if you guys are more comfortable going back to the previous code.
    Best Regards

    Hi Robert,
    To be honest, when the changes were first made I was not too keen. However I can't remember too much about the old forum (Perhaps that's down to age!) except when you hovered the mouse over a post in the index it gave you the first line of the topic, also it showed posts that you had replied to. These are the only things I miss.
    In my opinion, I am happy with the way things are now, and many thanks for your continued hard work and effort in making this forum what it is.
    Cheers, Clive

    (If I'm not here, I'm either in my new workshop or on the golf course!)

    I know you are after a vote however, the only functionality I do miss is the todays post bit.
    If I go in at 6pm and do not read them all come out and go in again I have lost as it has only shown me posts since last visit.

    Sure we used to have todays posts option ??

    Hi Robert, I agree with Clive , The only problem i have is the search programme , It never seems to throw up all posts on subjects. Or it may be me, im no computer wizard. Thanks for every thing you do on the club site. Regards Ray.

    Just an observation But there does seem to have been a lot less activity/users online since the change I'm happy (and greatfull) with whatever you decide.

    Thats only due to the difference between how online users are displayed between the different systems.

    The stats are about the same.

    Rob,

    Was much happier with the old layout, however wouldn't want to increase the burden just for the sake of layout - it's the content that keeps me here (oh, and the fact that I'm a sad old spotter of course!).

    Sorry Chris - I`ve been away for a month.
    There is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
    You don`t have to be mental to build a kitcar - but it definitely helps.

    It's not broken, so don't fix it.

    The current system is easier to navigate IMHO, works fine. Why change (again!)?
