Hey everyone. I am putting your donations to work and have hired a Xenforo developer to upgrade this board to the newest version of Xenforo. This current version is several years old.

The new version has many more features and hopefully fewer bugs. The duplicate posting bug should hopefully be gone after the upgrade.

When we make the switch this board will go down for an hour or so. You will know when the switch has been made because it will look a little different.

Stay tuned!

Awesome Hook’em.

Is one of the new features a Texans Rebuild tracker so we can see which year of the rebuild we are on now and know when it resets again? :kitten:

Appreciate your hard work and dedication to the forum.

Any way that a person can choose to stay with the old look?
Any way to choose a square avatar?

No, this avatar is the format xenForo uses now. We just upgraded to the latest version then modified the templates to look as close as we could it get it to the old board. The Angry Baby style is there a long with the TexansTalk one. You will get used to it. It took me a couple of days.

Gonna take a minute to get accustomed for sure, but I'm also pretty frumpy about board changes in general just cause I gets used to what I gets used to. And so far I'm getting a very comic sans vibe.

That said, legit appreciate the effort Hookem to keep the boards up to date and refreshed in a world where message boards are unfortunately becoming a thing of the past. Great work, dude. 1572564518157.png

Okay, change it back to Texans Talk Style and tell me what you think.
The problem with Texans Talk style, or the white style is the borders for me.

Everything looks like it's one big reply for me.

Excellent job though on the new improvements. I like the new reaction system.

Ok. After creating my weekly game thread, there is a big problem.
Before this upgrade, I could go to the teams official sites and then go to their Depth Chart and copy the offense for example. Just highlight the positions and names and then copy them and paste them in my post. Well, when I did that this morning, it copied the entire grid with each position and name inside boxes. I thought it looked great and completed my thread that way. When I went to post my thread, it gave an error message that the post could not be over 15,000 characters. Since I had been doing it this was for several years when creating my threads, I had to figure that it was the Grids that was taking it over the allotted 15k characters, so I tried again. It wouldn't let me post it without the grid when copying and pasting. I had to end up Cutting and pasting each individual name from the grid to my post. The idea behind the way I do it is so each name is a link to their individual stats and the team they belong to. It took me almost an hour just to do that part for each team. Talk about a pain in the butt. This is going to make it very difficult to continue creating my threads for the games. Please look into this and see if you can fix this part back. Other then that, the new look is great and having different skins to choose from is great.
Thanks

Try the Texans Talk 2 Style and tell me what you think. I added a red border to break things up.

That's probably a default setting somewhere of max characters allowed. I will see if I can find that somewhere.
