Default Today's Upgrade :)

Hello Everyone,

It took a little longer than expected this morning, but it seems all or most is good now

1) latest version of vb, which gave us:
- a mobile style (so you can view TF on your mobile device)
--NOTE: older devices may not be able to render the mobile style and vb has stated this mobile style is the beginning -- so it should get better with time.

2) latest version of vbseo, which gave us:
- use of a content distribution network (CDN) -- the speed of the site will increase over the next few hours/days, as more files get cached. You will see improvement now.

- it has a "Likes System", similar to facebook --- we are looking into that

anyway, let us know what you think!

PS. please let us know if you find a problem in the Feedback, Questions and Suggestions forum

looking nice, I noticed that how the newest thread is shown on the forum homepage is a bit different.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

So that is why I noticed you online for once

Glad we have a mobile version coming along, the likes system, does that come with a dislike system? -.-

Mobile on android sucks.
only way to go back to forum index is to keep pressing the back button. Pressing back 5 times after replying to a thread is not fun.

It isnt that. There is no forum links or anything like that built into the mobile skin. So either you go back to the forum index, or you use the back button and go back past all of your posts to the place you want to be.

So it is like this. I come to the forum, go into the Windows area. Go into a thread. Post a reply. Thread reloads with reply. Now there is no link back to the Windows area. So either i go back to the forum index or i go back through my posts and other topics back to the Windows Index.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
