Software upgrade

All,

We're now running the latest version of VBulletin (the forum software), so you'll see some changes.

Some of the integrated add-ons like our front page and gallery may need some tweaking so be patient while we make TWF even better!

I like the attachment tab built into the tool bar as well. I haven't tried it yet but, looks as if we can attach all formats now instead of just a few.

They are still there. Right now you have to go to profile to view your count. Were looking into getting them back up with Avatar.

Anyone know if this upgrade affects or have an impact on certain browsers? I use Internet Explorer with Comcast as my ISP. For some odd reason, when I view this site at home, I get the "cannot find server" error when I click on a thread, any thread. I would then have to close and re-open IE browser again. This also could be related to me adding McAfee Virus Protection/Personal Firewall/Personal Protection recently although this doesn't occur with the other forums I frequent. I am still running 98. I know, I know, 98 ..... I was considering upgrading the OS but I hate Gateway so bad that I am now planning on buying another computer and give this junk to my kids.

Are you getting the error page from favorites or the address bar?
If its coming from a favorites book marks. Its from something in your PC that is corrupt.

Address bar....I don't even use my favorites anymore. I just manually type in the websites I frequent in the address bar. I can get the page to load up and typically view the individual thread categories (ie. General Discussion, Off Topic, etc.). It's when I click my mouse to read a thread that I get the error message. It's just weird that it never happened before.

It probably does have something to do with the new software not being compatible with your system.
Have you updated windows lately?
I never had an issue that wasn't a kink during the upgrade.

VB, our forum software, is fully compatible with IE. I have seen some issues with Firefox and other non-IE browsers.

The issues your experiencing could be a lot of things. DNS problems, your firewall, cookies... I'd start by logging off, clearing your browser cookies and logging back in.
