Ads for guests

Posted 15-09-2010 at 12:22 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

I never really liked those massive boxes at the top for guests, but unfortunately it was the only way to get enough money to run the site.

I have however now been experimenting with other styles, so from today, I will test for a week (assuming we don't lose tons of money) with a new "in post" style banner, and a normal leaderboard up top (for guests only).

It makes the forum look more professional I think ... I just hope it works

Facebook "Like" Button

Have added a "Like" button to threads (just beside the "New Reply" button) - so if you think a thread is interesting, please "Like" it for us.

Post Highlighting

Posted 10-09-2010 at 12:00 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

To make threads easier to follow, the highlighting structure now mirrors the blog style.

In any thread, after the first post, any subsequent posts from the OP (original poster) will be highlighted in blue.

Now you can quickly see if they came back, etc etc

Server Move

Posted 17-08-2010 at 08:42 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

Yes, it finally happened. After 6 months (yes, 6 MONTHS!) of planning and arranging, the forum has finally moved onto a new (much faster) server.

I haven't yet finished optimizing the database settings yet, so there is still a bit to do, but for the most part, we're all done.

To keep things easier, if you can post any comments / bugs / whatever in the main thread in the LL - I can then quickly skip through and fix things.

My connection here is pants too, so...

Welcome the Abarths

Posted 15-08-2010 at 13:42 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

Despite people telling me for ages I should get an Abarth section on the forum, I kept putting it off, convinced somewhat that they would be too much like the current FIAT offerings.

It would appear I was wrong

So anyway, the Abarth models now all have their own seperate sections (scroll down and you will see a new "Abarth Cars" category) - along with the relevant social groups, members motors, auction watch and classifieds bits

Sorry it...
