Site-wide Updates: Domain name change, updates, etc

5 posts in this topic

Site-wide Updates:

12-31-16 to 01-xx-17

 

Good morning everyone,

Just a quick update to let you now I'll be implementing several updates this weekend, some of which will take the site down for a few minutes here and there.

The first update has already rolled out, with our Domain Name changing from GamingWorldForums to NewWorldForums.

All existing links to GamingWorldForums.com should automatically redirect to the same page at NewWorldForums.com, but if you find one that doesn't please let me know.

The reason for the change is to allow our forums to expand beyond gaming, and over the coming months when you browse the root of the forum you'll see these new sections show up.

Well that's if for now - please feel free to post any questions as a reply to this post,

Sincerely,

Grey

Update 2:

Do to several bugs with the old themes we have been forced to upgrade to the latest version.

While the new version has many additional features as well as bug fixes, as expected some may not like the change but we can't go back due to bugs/issues with the old themes.

Also new is now every forum on the site has a fixed theme. If you are in the CAG forum you will see that theme. If you are in the BOG forum you will see that theme. That said, you will still have the option to select your theme (from the bottom left of the website) to display in your profile, when sending PMs, etc.
 

Finally, the new themes have the ability to let you choose from a number of canned backgrounds using the "paint brush" icon on the top menu toolbar. Over the coming days I'll be adding some more backgrounds so check back at the end of the week for the updated selections.

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Feel free to post them as a reply :-)


Sincerely,

Grey
