    My goal is to eventually create a custom theme. However, it is not my area of expertise and I still need to work on a few more features.

    I see better functionality, new and improved features like easier multi picture uploading, likes, facebook, album sharing, RSS feeds etc.. I think like most things, people are resistant to change at first but in the long run they (we) are really going to like the new site! By the way, the smart phone functionality is leaps and bounds better in the way it looks and feels!

    I'm looking forward to a better mobile interface so I can use my tablet a little easier. (y)

    I'm not around much, but will we have to re-register when you change over or will everything just go to the new system? The H.A.M.B. just changed over to I think this same system and everything just moved over automatically. It takes a little getting used to, but there are a lot of neat new features, at least on their board, that make it easier to navigate. One is, when you go back to a thread that you have read before, the software takes you to the first new post since the last one you read.

    You will not have to re-register when the MMB is converted and everything will be converted over.

    The MMB will be using the same forum and gallery software as the H.A.M.B.

    Well guys, you are in for a treat! I can say for sure once you find your way around the new software, you will love it. Give Stefan time to tweak it and you will wonder why he waited so long to change over! :thumbs2: When the H.A.M.B. changed over, a lot of us weren't too sure about it, but after a few days playing with it, everything just became normal. The new features are great for you guys that are really into the social media stuff, hash tags, instagram, etc.

    Good choice Stefan, I think most will like it once they try it.

    Why the change from the old forum?

    I don't see a link for "All Maverick/Comet Posts".
