  Responsive Themes Added!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 12-22-2017, 07:33 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (5)

Ok guys, I added 2 new themes that are mobile responsive!  I do have to note that forums are really hard to make 100% responsive and these themes are fairly close but I am sure there are a few pages that need some work yet...but for the most part, you should be able to use them on a full size monitor or mobile device fairly seamlessly!  It may take a little time to get used to the new menus and the way they stack up on the mobile device but it should be easier for you guys in the long run!

The new themes are available from the theme changer at the bottom of the screen...Magnum500 and Dark Magnum500 are the names of the new themes.  You can switch back and forth anytime you wish!  I tried to keep the themes similar in colors and layout but some stuff was not able to be the same for responsive behavior reasons...the menus are laid out completely different but in a good way, LOL!

Let me know if you see any major issues! 

Merry Christmas!!

  2018 Calendars Are Available!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-17-2017, 11:17 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (23)

We received a ton of GREAT photos for the 2018 calendar and I am please to announce that it is now available for purchase! 

I used almost all of the submitted photos unless they were too small...there was also a lot of mix and matching on the pages so I was unable to list each owner, but many have expressed that they prefer not to be ID'd so I think everyone will be happy!  If your photos didn't make the cut, work on taking and saving some large file photos for next year!  We are definitely going to do this again!!

Here is the link to preview and purchase...remember, any proceeds from this calendar sale go to help support the forum operating costs!

Thanks and enjoy!!   thumb

  Forum Themes
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-14-2017, 10:09 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (2)

Hey guys, I have been doing some theme rebuilding since we upgraded forum software...I think I finally have it back to normal!  I also rebuilt the dark theme as well!  You can check out the dark theme by clicking in the theme chooser at the bottom of any page and then clicking on Dark Mach1!  To change back, just click on the Mach1 theme in the theme chooser. 

For those of you using the forums on a mobile device...please consider downloading Tapatalk from the Play Store or Apple Store.  It is FREE and will allow better usage of the forums.  The themes we are running here are not responsive to mobile devices and there is no way I can make them responsive.  I really recommend Tapatalk for mobile use!  Once you download the app, just search for 7173Mustangs, open it and log in!  I think you will like it!


  We need photos for 2018 Calendars
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-04-2017, 09:36 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (36)

Hey guys...since the COTM feature kinda petered out, we will need some high resolution photos so we can continue the yearly 7173Mustang.com fund raiser calendars!  You can post your pics here or email high quality, large file size pics to me at rocketfoot@7173mustangs.com.  Be sure to include the year and model as well as your name, city and state.

Also in need of Mustang Girl photos for a totally different calendar!!  If you have some pics you don't mind sharing of your favorite car with your favorite girl, send them to me as well!  Sales are private within the forum and all proceeds benefit the forum! 

Lets see if we can keep the calendar tradition rolling!!


check Unlimited Upload and PM Storage Space!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 10-30-2017, 03:18 PM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

I had a few emails asking about upload limits and PM storage problems...

Did you know that you can do away with all image upload problems on the forum by becoming a VIP Benefactor?  The cost is just $200 for lifetime membership and the donation money goes to help support the forum's domain fee's and hosting cost so it is for a great cause! 

If $200 isn't in your plan, we have several other levels of VIP status that also give you extra upload space and PM storage as well...

Check out our subscriptions page for more info!

https://7173mustangs.com/janotas_subscription_page.php

Note: Please don't think you NEED to become a VIP member!  VIP status is just an extra perk for members that wish to help support the forums...regular members have and will always have full access to the forums and important features!  The VIP status just gives extra upload space and PM storage as a perk for supporting the site.  Please, don't ever feel like you must donate!  Donations are completely voluntary!!

Thanks for all the support!  Remember, VIP subscriptions make great Christmas Gifts for your forum friends!!   thumb   Thankyouyellow


  Deadbeat Buyer Alert!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 09-06-2017, 05:09 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (6)

All members...please avoid dealings with cobra94svt

This member engaged in a deal with another member and failed to follow through with payment arrangements as promised.  We even contacted him and he once again promised to make good on the payment but after several weeks with zero contact, he still hasn't followed through! 

As always, members are reminded to be extra careful when using this or any online source to buy or sell anything!  It is always buy/sell at your own risk!!  All we can do is put out an alert and ban the deadbeat in hopes of preventing future rip offs!


  photobucket "game over" broken links
Posted by: 72HCODE - 06-30-2017, 12:27 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (14)

i figured i would post this here since it will effect anything and everything that is using photobucket.

Photobucket changed there TOS silently a few days ago they went from a free hoster to a pay site.

they are basically holding your photos for 400$ as that is the cost it takes to re-enable 3rd party linking.

3rd party linking is what allows your photos to be posted inside your threads.

So expect massive broken links to photos in threads from now on until a new free hoster is located.

just a huge heads up 3 of my photobucket accounts are suspended from 3rd party hosting until i pay them 

400$ for the privilege of doing what i have been doing for free for the last 13 years.

brilliant photobucket clap clap
