  1. OK folks, I am done. If you find that your membership is expired and you think that it shouldn't be, please send me a message, email, etc. and I will look into it.
  2. Still working on this. It is a long and tedious process that involves going through a full year of PayPal memership payments, getting that info for each member, going to their profile and moving them back to the supporting members group. I have done 8 months so far, so 4 more months to go. Should finish it later today.
  3. Well, not that small. I know that some have lost their membership status. It was due to a bad cron task that I added this morning to sort the member, expired members, etc. I am working on it and hope to have it all back to normal soon.
  4. Looks nice. Heck of a first bike. Hope you get many good years out of it. The Venture is know for lasting a very long time.
  5. I've added a new "Members Map" and the link is in the menu bar at the top called "Community Map". You don't need to do anything, it will add you automatically if your country, state, etc. are in your profile. It will take a few days before it adds everybody. It only adds 100 per day due to API key restrictions and etc. So please be patient. Also, only Supporting members will be listed.
  6. They do expire after some time though. I’ll have to look , don’t remember how long.
  7. No, very likely my comprehension skills. Or lack there of.
  8. Maybe I just figured it out. Commented on means that you actually posted a response, Reacted to means that you click on the "Like, Thanks, etc" button.
  9. Oh...and I don't understand your first question at all.
  10. I'm not sure what you mean. If you click "Quote" in one of your own posts, then that is what you will get, a copy of that post. The purpose of the quote button, same as the old site, is to quote something another member has posted. For example, if you are reading a list of news posts and there is ONE that you wish to reply to, you hit quote and then people know which post your are replying to. Otherwise, if you jut post at the bottom of the thread, it may be confusing as to which post your are addressing
  11. The lake is actually pretty large. We were down at the tail end of it. Never actually even made it to the main part. As for water on the boat, man, you don't know how to live. The evenings were quiet chilly. Felt great to jump in that hot tub. As for the cheesecake, it wasn't around long enough to get a picture.
  12. So sorry for you loss. Sounds like he live a long and fruitful life. I know you will miss him and please know that our prayers are with you.
  13. I haven't found a replacement for the state flags. I've found one for the country flags but not the state. I'm still looking.
  14. OK...you can now give Thanks, Like, Etc. for a post. You won't see it on your own post because a member can't rate their own post but you can on anybody else's. Just click on the heart at the lower right of the post.
  15. I don't think you can yet. I'll be looking into that though.
  16. Actually, they are slides and both Brad and I DID go down them. I think we have a video somewhere but not on my phone.
  17. LOL...you are entirely correct about that my OLD friend.

    One thing different about this software is that you cannot link to URLs in the Gallery. You ave to upload your pictures from your computer to this site. I actually like it better this way because I hate linked files in the Gallery, the posts, etc. The reason is that there have been a number of good tech articles written where the pictures were linked to as URL off this site. They ended up getting deleted and now they can[t be found. So, I say all of that to say this. If you have a gallery, please check it and make sure that your pictures are there. If not you will need to upload new
  19. You know, I honestly got no pictures of the houseboat. Maybe Squidley did? I'm not sure.
  20. That's OK. But the fact is, we have a lot of members who are not on Facebook, don't want to be on Facebook, and never will be. So I added it for those who want it.
  21. Have added a chat room. It may need some tweaking at some point but it is now fully functional. Link in the menu bar.
  22. OK folks, I got back home around 9:30 last night. Taking off for a week really put me behind in my business; I have a ton of appointments, service calls, and installs this week. However, in what spare time I can find, I will be continuing to work on the new site. There is much to be done and It will be slow but I don't see having to take it offline during these changes. Some things on my list are adding a chat room, adding a home page (though I'm not even sure that we need one), setting up the "membership" button for those wanting to become supporting members, etc. A lot to do. There ar
  23. Lol. No scoot. Wish I did. The roads were amazing getting here. We pulled the boat down with us though and some friends pulled my wave runners so we have a boat and the wave runners tied up to the houseboat. Some of these curves were not especially suited to pulling a boat though. We rented at East Port Marina near Alpine, TN and it is in the middle of nowhere. It’s nice here but the water is low this time of the year and very muddy. Beautiful here but will probably return to Cumberland next year.
  24. There is a ton to do but it will have to wait until I get home. I’m sitting on a houseboat at Dale Hollow lake in Tennessee. Not great service here. Lots of customization and a new home page on the list.
  25. I'm showing all forums. This is really the URL until I get the home page rebuilt. https://www.venturerider.org/forum/ I'm also seeing most or the Gallery pictures. Some are blank because they were linked instead of uploaded to the site. That no longer works.
