    Default NOTICE: Forum Upgrade is Coming

    Looooong overdue, I have finally worked through a (6+ hour) dry run of upgrading the Comm Center to the current version of the forum software, vBulletin. It is very nice. Unfortunately the nice blue theme that we're all used to is not supported in V4, and the company (extremepixels) looks like they're gone. I've picked a few that you can see here (live demos)

    http://www.purevb.com/demo/forum.php?styleid=71
    http://www.vbstyles.com/style.php?id=26

    What do you think?

    I plan to upgrade very soon, maybe today. This will cause the Comm Center to be offline for a day or so.

    Great news about the forum update - thanks Bob!

    And I'm with you, I think the first style (style=22) is the best

    OK, well it's done. I have to work on the graphics, but the hard stuff is behind me.

    The Blissfully Simple and TwistedBlue styles have some display problems. I'm editing in TwistedBlue now and it's black on white, but then it displays whits on black. Dumb. Also the thread list, the selected message is in an ugly bar with a white background. Irritating, I bought 2 skins from that company for $35 each, and they are sort of useless. So right now the forum default is the much better Blue Fox.

    Sorry about the Blue Fox banner folks. I'm working on it!! There is a lot to do yet.

    OK, the Fox is gone, but we have guests (the Rices from New Mexico Skies) so the rest of the customization will have to wait. At least it's functional!!

    The Blue Fox is BACK! The Blissfully Simple theme is broken in a bunch of ways and I just can't afford the time to learn how all of this works and fix it. Instead I have set the forum default to Blue Fox Fluid. It seems to work great and has nice enough colors. I have trouble spotting forums with unread messages. I may work on changes to the icons, but not right away. There are too many other things on my plate. R.I.P. Blissfully Simple.
