TunerAtlanta is changing over software for forums

Post by Wazzy on Sat Sep 18, 2010 11:55 pm

To all users and visitors

For the next few weeks, we will be converting our forums to the Vbulletin software and we will be posting news about it every chance we get!

What this means for users;

A new improved forum database with many user options
A more stable software with no unapproved ads
A more user friendly experience and faster load environment

Users will be required to change their passwords once the software is merged.. We will supply generic passwords for users and email users accordingly.

Users may or may not lose pictures and other data, but will be able to re post it up!



Wazzy and the NEW TunerAtlanta team FTW

I'm uploading the software to the web now.

It will be functional tonight most likely, but it won't be live for use by all for several days. VBulletin is very difficult to set up....so it may take a few days to work out the kinks.

Like Wazzy said, VBulletin is much more user friendly then what we are using now. There is SO MUCH that you can do with VBulletin that you can't do with our current software.

If anyone is a member of any other forums, its likely that that forum uses vbulletin. For a good example, visit wrxatlanta.com to see vbulletin in action.

Unlike what we are using now, VBulletin is 100% customizable with countless different plugins and add ons....picture managment is VERY easy, navigations is easier - etc....

Any questions or concerns please direct them towards me since I will be handling the merge for the most part. If I'm not available, Wazzy may be able to help you out.

The new forums are online as of now - but I'm still working on building them. It will likely be sometime tomorrow before they are up.
