Forum Upgrade

We just upgraded our forum software this morning.  It was a significant upgrade, so please let me know if you encounter any bugs or issues.
 
The most notable enhancements include support for the iPad and mobile devices.  You should now be able to read the forums and make posts from most handheld devices.  Enjoy!

    Hey, that worked!
     
    I like some of the other features I see...an easy link to a particular post (permalink), fonts, etc...
     
    The mobile theme is also great and very nice on small phone screen!
     
    Nice upgrades!

    Thanks! Just in time. We are heading out on the road again in our RV this weekend and I prefer not to take my laptop. Now I can use my iPad.

    What in the world is Ticket Information?
    And what's with the box on the right of a message with stars showing and a zero under them?

    I have now tried four times to "include quote" in replying to a post and it just will not do it. Additionally, when replying, the reply box stretches to the right and I have to move the bar to see what I've typed.

    I know MH rates more than two points, but apparently thats all the points I have left to award. So You're a 2 until I figure out how to change it.

    Michael, are you by any chance using version 6 of Internet Explorer?  I am and am noticing that the forum isn't working as well as it used to, and I also can't include replied-to text.

    You have to click the button up top of the pop up window that says reply to message.  Then click quote message.  Thanks Mayor

    Ticket information is used whenever one of you flag a post as SPAM or inappropriate.  That is how we get notified and how you can track the status.

    I have no idea what version I'm using. All I know is that when I try to reply with the quote it flashes the quote for a millisecond and it disappears.

    That doesn't work for me. I had to copy your post and paste it here.

    Sorry, but it will hard to troubleshoot without knowing which browser you are using.

    After you open up a reply box look for "[+] Show Message Replying To" right under the Post, Preview, and Cancel buttons.  If you click that does the message appear in the box?  It worked for me and now the quoted text is appearing every time, but I also switched to Firefox.

    Wow. I don't know if anyone else is experiencing such but said upgrade now allows me to see each RoadFood poster naked when they log-on. Please, for the love of God, disable this feature.

    Not really a problem, but I dont like how the second consecutive carriage return appears to put in a larger amount (guessing roughly 50% more) of white space than the first

    line2..........................................................................................................................................................................CR  CR
