Bullionstacker 3.1 coming soon!

We're nearly there! For reals this time. The new site is up and running. The bugs have been worked out and we're just about finished testing. Still have a few things to clean up and need to make some cosmetic changes.

The new site will look and work a lot like the current site but we'll be running on the latest software which means better security and the ability to add new features.

The change will happen in about 2 weeks, after the next KSAs. We'll announce the exact date when we get closer since the site will be down for several hours during the cutover.

Sneak preview:

I just added a date and time clock above the left sidebar. The new site already has one. Might be helpful during KSAs. ;)

The new site also has a wider reading pane which means larger images! 8-)

We'll increase the upload limits to allow for the larger image sizes as well.

When did a clock appear in the top left under the home tab?

The look and feel of this website is already best as far as I'm concerned. But if it can become more secure, sure the better.

Congrats! Upgrading is always such a hassle, especially migrating data! Security and New features is always a good thing.

PM suggestions: If there is a way to search my 1000-message Inbox and Sent box for certain text or a certain member, it is eluding me. If it doesn't exist already, it would be a welcome feature. Also, we can only select the PMs that are on the page in front of us, can't select all of them and can't increase the number of messages per page.

There is no way that I know of to search PMs. I have multiple boxes filled to 1000. :oops:

The new site will work exactly the same, for now. Better messaging is one of the reasons we're upgrading to the latest forum software. We've been stuck running an old version because of our custom theme and the feedback module.

This has prevented us from upgrading until now. Our developer built the new site and used extensions to make it look and feel as similar to this site as possible. BS & RC made donations to the feedback author and he worked with us to upgrade the feedback and make sure it worked the way we wanted.

Once we're on the new site, we'll use the test site to try out new features, like better messaging. One step at a time. ;)

Nope. Try deleting your BullionStacker cookie and then log in again. Could be something messed up there.
