Can We Have A Portal Back?

    It'd be a lot easier to keep track of posts (along with birthdays) if they were posted on a portal on the front page of the site, as opposed to going right to the forums and finding nothing.

    The birthdays are available on a plug-in that, if I remember right, isn't compatible with the our backbone. I looked over Christmas, and didn't see an update, but can check again.

    I can check on the portal. I use a link to get to the site that brings me to "Unread Posts" so I can see what's happening without having to browse. I read them all pretty pretty easily that way, but I do miss the birthday notices by jumping in there.

    XenForo doesn't offer the same interface options as Vbulletin. Since they XenForo programmers were former Vbulletin developers, I think they made a conscious effort to make them look different.

    I still kinda wish we were still on VBulletin, I knew what to do there and we had a portal.

    Just go to "New Posts". You will see all of the new posts.

    But no birthdays, and I'll see posts I don't want to see (Howard Stern, Bubba, Sports, etc).

    I think we should go back to individual birthday threads rather than the generic member one which always gets missed. From what I gather, this software does not support the birthdays page. The individual topics may allow us to catch on when we see them in new posts.

    Just say "Happy Birthday everyone" once a year and be done with it. We aren't six year olds.

    Nobody gets anything until we reinstate Top Dog.

    Which reminds me, I've been farting around on SBS/DRC for like 13 years. :confused:
