Welcome to the 3rd Generation of the Warbird Information Exchange. This upgrade has taken an amazing amount of work and there is still quite a lot of work ahead of me. I know its ugly, this is the default theme. Today and in the coming weeks I will be tweaking the look and feel of the board. Please have patience. This is a completely new software package with a lot of new features that I will implement as I learn them. Thanks for your patience and understanding

Many thanks for your work Scott. Database migration and new forum upgrades are one of the things I run way in server administration...

Scott or Ryan,

The WIX page...

http://wwww.warbirdinformationexchange.org/

...directs to the old forum and not the new forum. Could someone please correct this?

TIA

Mike

Might I also suggest setting the version 2 board to archive mode and/or replacing its index.php file with a redirector.

Thanks, I'll be tweaking settings for quite awhile yet. I just fixed the gateway and I have disabled new posts in WIX hanger of the old forum and will diable the other ones tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks for all of your hard work in upkeeping this board Scott. I know it isn't easy and is extremely time-consuming.

One comment/question. Whenever a picture (jpeg) is posted within a thread here on this new forum, for some reason the right hand side is cut off. It is like that on any picture I view on any thread. Is it a problem on my end or this new software? I haven't changed the configuration and/or screen settings on my computer. On the last version of WIX, I did not have this problem.

Thanks.

Yes, thanks for all the hard work. I'm already getting used to seeing things in the new format.

For what it's worth, I've received a couple of PMs on the -2 forum even after the -3 integration. Everyone check the old version to make sure that nothing "slips through the cracks" so-to-speak.

Scott

From experience in other forums with similar software, if you click the picture it will appear in its full grace...

Problems? Nope. It's actually cured the problems I was having and allowed me to login for the first time in about a year. Gotta say I'm liking it so far.

The previous software was modified to resize certain images according to your screen reolution, downsizing it to fit. I will be working on implementing something similar here in the near future. So its not you, it's me. ;)
