Upcoming Forum Upgrades - Complete

In the very near future I plan a major upgrade to the forums. Some things to note:
  1. I may need to disable the board for a short period of time to prevent any data loss that could occur during database migration (minutes to hours). At this time I cannot provide a time frame as to when this will occur
  2. The upgrade will log you off the board, so you will need to log back in after completion
  3. All extensions will be removed for the upgrade and, at least initially, will NOT be re-installed. This includes tapatalk
  4. Once complete, there will be some noticeable changes to the current board layout (hopefully for the better), including a more mobile friendly template
I will post back to this topic once the upgrade has been successfully completed.
Thanks

I don't see a button for View New Posts, which I always used. I loved it because I didn't have to browse/search for new posts.

I also don't see the one that said View all Unread Posts.

Yes, some things got moved. Top left under quick links (or 'hamburger' if on a mobile device) - right above 'Board index" - click and a drop down shall appear with those options

Any particular reason this is posted in Transportation to & From other than in Announcements?

It's a global announcement - should be visible as an announcement in all forums.

Am aware that some posts in the Cross-Country Passes forum may seem empty (but they are not gone). Not sure right now the reason will try and fix as soon as possible
