Hurry CG.  This is worse than waiting on Christmas.  Of several forums recently "improved" this is the only one that really is improved.  My hearty thanks go to you.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it.  I'm trying to fix a couple of issues:

1. Preview is not working.
2. The Page Links and "previous and next" links are not visible at the top and bottom of the pages. (As well as the moderator link)

Other than that, we should be good to go.  If there are any comments at this point I am open to your opinions and observations. Further, if you think there are any bits of information that you think should be visible on the home page, let me know.  Currently, I have the Alpine Gas Prices (for some reason isn't posting right now.), Big Bend Weather, Doppler Radar, Big Bend in the News and the Basin Webcam. 

I'll be adding other links at the top of the page as we proceed.

thanks for your patience in the transition!

David

There still seems to be an issue. On Homero's recent trip thread there presently are three pages...
http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/serranias-del-burro-del-carmens-el-carmen/nov08sierra-del-carmenpuerto-rico-mineboquillas-del-carmen-and-the-tunnel-t6716.0.html;prev_next,next#new

Clicking on the individual page numbers navigates correctly; 'next' does not seem to work at all; and 'previous goes back to page one (even from page 3, without stopping at 2).

Also, in the user 'profile' area 'show posts' will only display the first page, regardless of any other clicked on. The same issue affects viewing other members when clicking 'show the last posts of this person'.

The threads seem to be missing the hyperlinks "Go to top" and "Go to bottom", that were on the old look. These were handy.

is there any way to fix things like BadKnees' latest trip report so we don't have to scroll horizontally to see the entire pics?

just curious...

no, the website is designed for the avg computer screen. Not all screens can see wide images, so there has to be a line drawn somewhere.  Also, Golden Eagle subscribers get a wider view of the threads since they do not see ads.  Unfortunately, it is an impossible task to make everyone see the same because of the variety of monitors on the market.
