If you don't like the new bright theme, we now have a dark theme available!  Just click on DARK STANG in the theme changer box at the bottom of every page.  You can also change it from your user CP under the edit options link.

It's not 100% finished but it should be completely useable!  Enjoy, and let me know what you think of the new dark theme!!


  Forum Upgrade and new theme!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 02-07-2017, 08:04 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (69)

With the new HTTPS Everywhere protocol on the internet, we are faced with a big decision here at 7173Mustangs.com.  The current software is out of date and it is not able to be upgraded easily because of the overwhelming number of custom modifications made to the core software over the years.  

Today's software will not let us become HTTPS compliant...so I am going to need to upgrade to the latest MyBB software.  That in itself is OK and we won't lose any info but the bad part is that it will be a complete site redesign!  It will not look the same as it does right now!  But it will function better, faster and it will be more secure in the new design.  We may lose a few custom features such as the fancy garage layout and such but the data will still be there in regular forum layout.

With the way the internet is today, we need to make a move to simplify the forum in order to make updates more easy...my main goal is to try and NOT lose any of the data and information that we have accrued over the years!

So with that said, I really don't have much choice but to move along with the upgrade...possibly as early as today!  I have been using the new software on some other sites and I do think you guys will like it after the initial shock of change!!  thumb

When I take the site offline for the upgrade, remember to visit the Facebook page for updates on the progress!  I don't see the site being down for more than half of a day.  I just need some time to add the drop down menus and stuff after the initial upgrade.

Price is just $20 each shipped to your door. We do need to presale 100 pieces to get the special deal and any proceeds made from the sales will go to the forum operating costs and help keep us up and running!
