March 2014: This Pig is Getting a New Lipstick
« on: March 18, 2014, 08:42:44 AM »
Folks..

I've mentioned this tons of times before but just never really got around to it. But we're upgrading!!
I'm moving this puppy up to using SMF 2 which should give us a whole bunch of new options and functionality. So not only is it new lipstick, it's a whole new pig.

What to expect?

1-  Upgrade to take place this week!

2- The Smileys and lounges might disappear for a little while

3- better security

4- Lightweight responsive theme that works on all those pesky mobile devices.

5- a sleep deprived Nolefan.


Seriously though, this is gonna be fine and other than the smiley issue and the lounges that use a special plugin, i don't think we have to worry about anything. The whole baby is backed up in case we need to switch back.

Trust me... I'm a pro bjbjbjbjbj bjbjbjbjbj bjbjbjbjbj

That's great Noles, will it allow us to join Tapatalk or have some other phone friendly version?

looking at doing both.. the new design is responsive so it will adapt to any mobile device. Adding tapatalk will be the next step.

I don't understand modern technology and don't use a mobile phone or any gadgets I see people using . I hope that I will still be able to access the Saloon. Hope all goes well Noles and thank you for the work you do to keep Raoul's Saloon going. agagagagag

Xwarrior Can I come too? I still have a gas mask from 2nd Gulf War (with atropine needle)  ababababab And by the way Noles I don't think you should refer to pigs in such a deprecating manner.  afafafafaf

Dear piglet - you are welcome anytime. Maybe these V4 things make a bigger bang than a V2.

I heard that the Chinese plan to blow some smog in our direction so your atropine needle may come in handy. It would be nice if you could bring more than one needle.

PS I agree with you on the subject Noles gave for this post. I thought he was going to announce that it was your birthday.

So folks.. it's on and it's live!!
I'm still tweaking things and getting used to all the new stuff.

There will be a new look coming soon, once i've managed to find some time.

peace

The thing I used was new posts in threads I posted in and then new posts.  I can't find a way to see these which means I will probably miss 90% of the posts I was following.   llllllllll llllllllll

Missed that, too at first look. They're in the top menu bar (above the title). The avatar icon, third from the left. Both choices in the pull down menu.
