    Tim,

    Nice job with the coversion. Don't have much time to really check it out until Friday but first glance looks like it's not missing any fingers or toes.
    And to think, on my 3000th post.

    E-mail notification should be working. I just got my own notification from a PM from Alan.

    Thanks Tim- terrific job with the conversion! Great that you got links converted and are keeping the redirection in place. Lots of good things with the current version of vBulletin and the forums will definitely benefit from them. Was pleased to see my email notifications in my inbox this morning and know that the site was back up.

    Have had very little time to navigate around and check things out so far, but I will note there is some significant funkiness in the display in Safari on the iPad. Nothing that prevents navigation or viewing/editing posts, just aesthetics. I can send to screenshots if you want but I'm sure you'll be doing some general tweaking for a few days so I'm happy to hold off.

    Thanks again for taking on this job!!

    Looking good so far!
    If you try to log into vftt.org/forums instead of www.vftt.org/forums, you get a vBulletin "Invalid Redirect" error.
    Is it correct to say that "What's New" and "New Posts" are exactly the same?

    Note to the careless ones (like myself ): New domain is vftt.org, not vftt.com.

    I have a PM with a link to the old forum, which did not get converted. I can of course change it every time I link to it, but I can not change the source of it. I suppose I could forward the message to myself and solve the problem that way as well, but then it would be in my 'sent' box, not my 'inbox', and appear to come from me, not the original author.

    If I find any other broken links (or missing ones! ) I will let you know.

    The calendar won't display 2012, it stops at Dec 2011. The current date is good so I'm not sure what would cause that.

    This should be fixed. You can limit the calendar to a certain date range and it was set to 2006-2011.

    New forum format

    I just wanted to say that the updated format looks a lot nicer and cleaner. Thanks.

    Someone else might have a better idea but this is how I do it.
    I move the pics I want from iPhoto to my hard drive pics folder. I sign on to Photobucket. I click "upload at the top". I then drag the pic I want into the big box and then click "upload at the bottom" of the big box. The pic goes into the library. I then select the pic and on the far right you have options. I use IMG at the bottom. I click the IMG and it immediately copies it. I go back to VFTT and in the text box I PASTE that IMG code and when I click reply at the end of my post, the pic will come up.

    Try this: http://www.vftt.org/forums/faq.php?f...b3_attachments, and the custom link I added towards the bottom (Picasa specific). If this is not clear, let me know and I will update it. Thank you in advance for testing out the directions
