Agree the for sale sections should pop up first then the sections.

Plus I despise this - see below

Sorry, there are no new threads to view.

You may search for threads updated during the previous 24 hours, here.

Mclaren Life is far better and many of the same users as F Chat.

If the owners want this site to grow it needs to look like F Chat - good or bad that's what people are comfortable navigating.

Youtube embed codes should be pretty simple. Is everyone having a hard time.

I don't think I got everyone's consent about upgrading this site's version of VB. Are there people that are interested. Once it's updated, the layout should be a lot simpler to navigate. The front size of the forum would be bigger as well.

Lee, I'd guess that most folks have not seen this thread....

I'd suggesting creating a link within the most visited sections or a banner - someway to get everyone's attention and input.

I love the interaction and people on this site BUT compared to other social media platforms it is such a dinosaur.

Dinosaurs are cool.

We have youtube and vimeo bb codes. Is there anything else that's needed?

Where would be a good idea to post this upgrade request?

In the mod section? With a Poll?

We can just post a poll in this thread if everyone is in agreement.

That would be great but as I mentioned prior, I don't think many visit this section. Is there not a way to have a banner or post in each section with a link?

I think most are just watching this thread, rather than participating. Although It's only had a few posts, it's had over 750 views.

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Most likely 600 of the views are by googlebot or other spiders



Rick media is needed today period and seamlessly done, no special code or secret handshake to do it.
Place link and software should parse it

Pardon the sarcasm but can we take some action on this topic before Xmas?

If you guys want to see this forum grow, IMO this is a very needed step.

All for or against site layout update, please vote and an update request will be sent if most of them are for it. I'll give it 2-3 days.

Just do something to embed rich media

Video images easily etc

Forum software is so similar


Folks remember if they upgrade to another brand besides VB they may break all the image links and a bunch of other stuff

Hello,

We already have a button for embedding images and there should be more bb code wrapping options in the advanced posting page. Is that what you were referring to?

As in VB4 you can simply put the url of youtube or most other video and it will self parse the link

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ac2SD03fKD8#t=12

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ac2SD03fKD8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

With the image works the same and if you click on the image you can set the thumbnal size.

If its more then 1 click away to fully parse a video or image its like the Doo Doo bird
