Forum Icons

Posted 18-02-2011 at 18:25 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

All the model forums now have a little photo icon next to their name - 1 to make it easier for new users to find the right one and, 2 to make the forum look a little nicer

I'll roll out icons for all the other forums over the next week or so

FIAT 500 USA section created

Posted 30-01-2011 at 23:07 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

As there are going to be some key differences in the US spec'd model, I've now setup a dedicated 500 USA section.

So a warm welcome to all our new USA members

Mobile site online ... finally!

Posted 11-01-2011 at 20:38 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

After getting years of grief from Helz (bless her) - I've finally got around to getting a fully functional mobile skin on the site.

It will kick in automatically if you are on a mobile device, and offers almost all of the main functionality of the full version - just heavily cut down.

There might be issues - so as always, do check it out and let me know

The Social Groups are dead... long live the Social Groups!

Posted 25-11-2010 at 12:16 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

Well we tried people - but in the end it seems the groups just weren't integrated enough to keep people interested and thus just got quieter and quieter.

It's all rather complicated why we came around to needing them in the first place - however what's done is done.

Now, we've implemented something now which we said we would never do. But bear in mind THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL.

There is now a new prefix to use in the model sections for OT discussions, aptly...

Garage Updated

Posted 24-11-2010 at 08:46 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

Updated the garage to the latest version - will start styling it later on.

I also went though as much of the outstanding submissions I could, but basically.

If you submitted a business with no address, phone number, or website - it was deleted.

Most generic products were also erased, as well as a lot of FIAT things. If you can't put a product code on it, then just put it in the description field, as otherwise we are going to get many many duplicates....
