New feature folks.
Any of you with personal websites related to our hobby (even off topic tractors, ughhhh), post you link here or email me the link.

I will then link it along with a screen capture or your logo on our Links Page under "Member Sites"

Hi folks,

I have implemented a new Link system which has consolodated all the links into a nice dropdown menu just below the forums logo..... its not 100% yet but its close... the old links are still there but i will be removing them soon.
I am having issues showing the buttons properly in chrome.... not sure why but im working on it.

Also i have pulled alot of the old "FAQ" stuff from the latest archive of the old registry.... recoded what i needed and droped it into a new Faq page right here on our site.

Also i have rewritten Todd markle"S parts cross reference and added some of my own.... still have a dozen of so to add to this but its a work in progress....

Check it our ==========faq.php?mode=cubfaq

Anyhow i hope this helps us find stuff easier.

Hi folks again

If any of you are experiencing strange issues with the buttons under the header.... not displaying properly ...
clear your browsing info... i think most importantly localy cached pages... a simple F5 should pull the new page off the site but chrome is irritating me! i had to dump the local cache before it acted normal..

anyway back to your regularly scheduled programming

Dave,
I have a correction. The "5 prong ignition switch" is actually the plastic plug for the 5 prong switch rather than the switch itself.
See my IH, Cub Cadet and tractor pulling youtube videos;

Hello again from the nerd desk...

Due to overwhelming complaints i have installed code to automatically resize images during the upload process. This will eliminate the need for the users to do so before they go to upload the pictures.... also the physical size of the file should not be an issue either but remember they take up space on the server so try not to upload picstures that are more than a few MB.

Ok along the same lines you can now upload Multiple pictures at once... when u browse for pictures you can now use the typical Shift + click or ctrl = click to select more than one picture. Now i think the server will still get mad at you if you try to upload more than 20 MB at once.

Of course this will probably make the people on dial up really cranky... sorry

Still working on getting pictures to show in highslide

I think i will upgrade the posting page to make it slightly more user friendly

i dunno maybe more

Dave - This will be a huge help to the forum, but I couldn't make it work. I used the "upload attachment" at the bottom and after selecting my photo I got an error message that it was large than 2XX KB. What am I doing wrong?

Hello

In continued efforts to make uploading pictures easier the "upload attachment" tab on the posting page now comes up as default.

General Announcement - We have been getting some reports of unable to post pics in several topics.

Forum code guru Dave C is aware of the problem and it is being looked into.

In the mean time you might see me polluting some threads with test pictures; I will delete my posts later if they are not relevant.

Thanks, Tom
