vote for which you like best, .. ... cool

the only thing with the new forum is less: "Petro Recent Posts"

IMO: better with 10/12 recent post and easier too access ..

I use an iPad almost exclusively when viewing Oldgas.com. The graphics are crisper and it seems to fit my screen better.
Kudos!

Thanks for pointing that out. On the Portal page right column, the top thing is supposed to be the most recent 12 posts in the forum sections focused on petroliana. The configuration still says "12" but only 5 display on the page since the upgrade. I'll have to ask the software developer about that. Appears to be a bug (software defect).

Keep in mind, you can always click on "Active Threads" on the upper menu bar to get a results page with all the most recent thread posts. But I understand the Petro Recent Posts list keeps the petro only focus.

The "Petro Recent Posts" restriction to 5 was a bug. The software developer gave me a code snippet for me to edit into the script that runs that function. Looks like it is performing normally now with 12 linked recent petro posts.

I like the upgrade. I think it’s great that Jim is constantly striving to improve the website. He’s the one doing all the work to have such a great website.

I use OG on my phone and laptop. I noticed that on my phone I no longer have to zoom in to see the first word of a persons post, because it was covered by their avatar. That doesn’t seem to be a problem any more.

Plus each upgrade makes the next upgrade easier. Like Jim mentioned, maybe the next upgrade will fix the sideways picture problem.

Jim is the one who does all of this work, so we can enjoy this website. Without his hard work, we would only have Facebook frown So kudos to Jim.
