Don't worry, you're not going crazy and may have noticed we've had a BIG upgrade tonight on the forum.

I will be turning on our 'like/love/funny etc.' system back on tomorrow with even more improvements that you will like plus turning on other functionality that may be missing at this time of the the night.

Have you seen the new way to make a forum thread?

Once you go into a subforum you will see an empty thread at the top that looks like this



Simple click on Thread Title and you can create your new thread on the fly!

Want to know when someone has sent you an PM or you've been quoted and alerted in a thread?

Now Alerts will appear in your browser tab just like below!

The new forum style is the first thing you will notice if you are an existing TMS user. The entire style has been redesigned with a fresh new appearance, but also with mobile browsing at the forefront of the design. When the viewport shrinks, on-page content shrinks, shifts and reorganises itself automatically to optimise the browsing experience for small displays.

A sticky header automatically activates when the window is scrolled, allowing the most important navigation controls to remain available at all times.

Emoji support ✍

All textual content on TMS now supports emoji, from message text to forum titles.

Member tooltip
Member cards have been replaced with a new member tooltip, which appears on the first click on a member's name. A further click will load the member's full profile page.

It feels like only yesterday you did the last one.

Hope this one went smoothly.

:)
hah, tell me about it!

The last BIG one was me being forced to move to paid forum software due to how much TMS had grown

This one is the same paid forum software releasing a huge update that I've had to apply

Shouldn't be anymore for at least 2 days lol

Man!! I just about just got used to the last "new" look... back to square one :D:D:D
haha, you've got to keep up with the Internetz these days!

Do you now remember just how BAD our mobile site was a year or so ago that you must have relied on when out and about in your van lol

Yeah the mobile functionality is even better than before!!!
I don't have a smartphone so that aspect doesn't apply to me but I know I am in the minority and it will be important and VERY handy to many people, so thanks for that @Jon

I logged in at some unearthly hour and did a double-take. I really like the new set-up
Yeah I started this at some nearly ungodly hour which is why I've still got some more stuff to bring online later today so don't be surprised if new things appear for you to do a double-take again lol

Glad you explained it @Jon, just looking at the 'thumbs' I thought it was a basic yea or nay, so ignored it as didn't want to do a 'nay' by mistake.
