    We have a ton of new features here on the board. I'll run through a few of the more pertinent ones here.

    1. Tagging can be accomplished by using the @ sign followed by the user name you wish to tag. The board will auto fill the tag to help you out. Example: @debinnv
    2. You'll see a link at the top for "media". This link will allow you to post albums. Then when you wish to post a picture in a post you can pull it from your albums or choose to upload a new one.
    3. You'll notice your "alerts" at the top right of the screen. This will allow you to keep up with who has tagged you or liked your posts.
    4. In addition to a more integrated messaging system, you can leave publicly viewable messages on each others profiles now.
    5. If you scroll to the bottom of the page on the right side of the screen you will see the word "iron". Clicking this will allow you to choose from other available templates to suit your visual preferences for the site.
    There are a lot of changes, and some I am sure you will find as you go. These were some of the bigger ones that there had been complaints about in the past that I was happy to be able to address.

    I'm posting from my iPad at the moment, which was... challenging... with the old forum markup. A definite improvement!

    Just gotta figure out all the new features now. :)

    I've been using my phone and tapatalk. Much better than doing it in the web browser

    This one was irritating the hell out of me, so I changed the link on the logo to go to the forum homepage instead of the website homepage. The "Home" link in the menu will still go to the website homepage but the logo when in the forum will now go to the main page of the forum.

    Just a heads up for those that aren't familiar with a xenforo board, here's how you do partial or multi quotes.

    Just highlight the line from the post that you want to quote and a "reply" button will pop up underneath it. Click that it and it will put it in quote tags in the reply box. If you want to quote an additional line from the same or another post just repeat the process and it will add it in after that.

    Got the old smileys transferred over to here. Also overhauled the website template to better match the forum.

    I added thread ratings. If you scroll up to the top of this thread you will see the gold stars. On threads that haven't been rated they are gray stars. Obviously, you just click the appropriate number of stars to rate the thread as desired.

    Created two new forums "Vaping Media" and "Health Studies" to keep the general ecig forum from getting cluttered.

    @trlrtrash13, any way in the vaping deals thread that you can make 2 sub forums, one for Liquids, and one for hardware? would the deals be able to post in those direct sub-forums?

    Cool. I think it would make it easier to find stuff. If you are looking for juice, you go to the juice one, hardware you go to hardware

    I just setup a sub forum for juice. Hardware will be in the main one. That way I don't have to move the rest of the posts. lol. Lazy solution.

    That works perfectly. Hardware is more prominent in promos anyways.

    Alright, I found this template awhile back and wanted to run it on the forum. In order to do so I needed to rework an existing site template to get some kind of consistency out of the two. I;m satisfied with the result, so the default template is now in place and running. If you're using something else, give "Legend" a try. I think you'll like it. This will now be the default for the website.

    Just a heads up, I'm not sure when I will get the time to do it but in the near future the main part of the website will be going down temporarily. This will not affect the forum at all. So, unless you use the main part of the website to access the forum (meaning going to smokey and the bandwidth dot com and clicking the menu link for the forums) you will be fine. If you are doing that, you can directly bookmark the forum to prevent any issues.

    Basically, I have to update the main software that the site runs on and it's a full number upgrade so it's pretty complicated. Also, as a result the old templates won't work anymore so I may have to change color schemes. If so, the default forum template will be changed as well so if you want to lock in the one that is currently the default theme than follow these steps.

    1. Click on your user name in the top menu of the forum.
    2. Click on "Personal Details".
    3. From the menu on the left side of the page, click on "Preferences".
    4. On the first option "Style" scroll down and select "Legend" and this will keep your view of the forum the same if you are using the default template.
    Sorry for any inconvenience, I just need to get this thing updated to the new software for security and continued functionality.

    Alright, I got it all done. Hopefully nobody was inconvenienced. If you preset your theme preference to Legend but want to give the new one a look see, it is called Quark. You can select it the same way. With the exception of some minor changes coming to the other part of the site, everything is in up to date and working correctly. No further changes will cause any operational issues for users while completing.
