    We will begin upgrading the site software tomorrow.

    Thinks will look a LOT different. However we will work to get it right.


    For the time being, attachments are turned off to prepare for the migration.

    Any questions please let us know!

    I will be shutting the site down in a few minutes. Between 6:30am - 7:00am. It could potentially take a few hours as there is a lot of posts that need to be processed.

    Question: On the old site there was a way to go to the first unread post in a thread. That was very helpful, but I'm not seeing that here. Am I just overlooking it?

    Question 2 (actually FYI), On www.georgiapacking.org (top of the site), under "Latest Replies", under the title of each thread it shows the "Thread starter" and date time it was started, except it's not the thread starter, it appears to be the member that posted the last message.

    I'm having iPhone app issues since the upgrade. It only shows "Home" and "subforums". If I try to open a thread it says forum not available. Do I just need to be a little more patient before using the app?

    Yes please give a little more time - Tapatalk tends to take their time in updating. Hopefully it's just an hour or so, but could take up to 24.

    I'm not seeing the "Quote +" button, just a Like & Reply button. I've also selected text and see "Reply" , but no quote+. :-?

    I always used to start off with "my replies" on the old platform. Is there something similar here?

    I have written a short basic tutorial.
    http://www.georgiapacking.org/threa...-users-guide-to-the-site.273717/#post-2913288

    The shortcut is, to use a link called "My Content" It will show you the replies and threads started by you. You access that by rolling over your name, and in the left column being listed there about 4th from the bottom.

    I saw that but that's just threads I've started. "My Replies" would show all the threads I had commented on.

    In an earlier link I posted a smiley, but it didn't display. So, I'm trying it again.
    :mad:
    :righton:

    Looking at the preview of this post, ":righton:" isn't displaying and the first smiley is not the smiley I clicked.

    Edit: It posted the same as the preview.
