I was thinking more for daib0 and louise in their prediction threads if they needed stuff for reference.

Most forums are built using forum software such as VBulletin, Zen Foro, Simple Machines, etc. This was built on MyBB which served a purpose well but difficult to make any improvements because of the old code. This will be unique as Steed has actually built it from scratch so it's not using any third party software. The advantage of this is that Steed will be able to develop new features without any restrictions.

Threads in the main forums will be carried forward.

Just as a heads up, Suffolk has tried to update his email address and although it was successful, he got a message saying his account doesn't need to be activated. Ignore this message as the update has still worked.

Please ask for help/confirmation in this thread if you need assistance.

May as well call it AVFTT

The new site is in a different league to this, nevermind AVFTT!

You will get a choice on the new site and will be unique to any football forum so please don't compare it to that shite Wink

Also don't take viewing a forum on your phone for granted either. Not a lot of forums offer a responsive design but the new site will. Currently this is only a plug in which does the job but still a bit shit.

I don't find the mobile version on here too bad. It does what it needs to for the most part! Better than those who don't cater for it all.

Yeah I guess it's more with the tablet. Always loads the mobile version for me and then have to switch the full version.

This platform has been decent but ultimately it's dated technology and Steed can't really do any more with it hence the new build. Even with the stripped down version, I still think users will prefer the overall experience much better.

It's important to note that when Steed mentions that it will be stripped back, it's only for a short term and key features like PM's will be brought back but even better.

It won't be in this version but Steed has put it on the roadmap. The request came in a bit late.

Well, send us a PM if you need any help with that one!

Best ignore Hero or you'll end up with a nose appreciation page.

Funny thing is. The mobile version is better in portrait, but full version is better in landscape.
So on a phone the mobile is far better,but when on a tablet I have to switch it to full version .

Same here.

The reason behind is this current website isn't a responsive design. It's a website with a mobile plug in meaning it's either designed for desktop or mobile and nothing in between. The new one is responsive so it will automatically adjust to the device you are using. I've tried it on a ten inch tablet and it's so much better.

I’ve always found my ten inch never fails to deliver.
