    Announcing Bogley.com 5.0!

    Thanks for your patience as we were having some technical difficulties. We mistakenly hired some developers from the HeathCare.gov project. Boy was that a mistake!

    You'll notice that we've changed some things. It was kinda like remodeling your kitchen. Once you start tearing into it, the project ends up being a much bigger endeavor then you expected.

    The new skin is much more scalable for the future and we've needed to ditch our old skin for a while. I customized it from scratch and it was just not a long term solution. @Sombeech, my sever guy and a couple developer friends have helped when I could pry them away from work. Luckily I'm currently unemployed, which came in handy. I've been living on about 3 hours sleep a night this entire week. I'm starting to get sick from it all and my wife is barely talking to me. The worst is that I am exhausted, which makes it really hard when you have to concentrate and not screw stuff up.

    Anyway, we hope you like the new design. You'll notice at the bottom of the screen that there are 10 colors to choose from and you can set the forum as fixed or "flex" depending on what you prefer. We'll be adding more and tweaking things as we go. Thanks again for your patience.

    Cheers,

    -acca

    Ahhh...you beat me to the Obamacare line!!! I just got here, so I have yet to look around...but thanks for the hard work and making me (and probably quite a few others) appreciate that you're back! It kinda sucked not having this place to hit on a regular basis.
    Life is what you make it. Everybody knows that...right?

    oh yeah!!!!!!!!!!! way to go! I am a fan of the upgrade! Definitely modern. Very sweet!

    Congrats to all those involved, a thank-less job indeed as it's all behind the scenes. But here is your moment to shine And tell your wife thank you too.

    Hey Friends! Just a couple of things you'll notice aren't there - BUT WILL BE SHORTLY

    the "Like this post" button, user tagging (with the @ symbol), and some smaller little details. We do plan on bringing them back but want to take it slow and try one at a time, making sure if the site breaks, we know exactly what did it.

    Hopefully you'll find this style a little more crisp. less cluttered, and a little faster loading time.

    And, not a huge deal but we're letting you get your crayons out and color the forum to your choice.

    Down at the bottom of any page, you'll see the dropdown. The default is "Bogley Blue Flex". The Flex means it will adjust the width to your monitor, where there is another blue that will keep it locked at a specific width.

    Go ahead and customize a bit, and we'll keep working behind the scenes. Thanks for your patience and we hope to keep improving everyday.

    And PLEASE ask questions in this thread, and point out oddities you've come across.

    thanks.

    Oh, and we'll get the Outdoor Gear feeds out of the latest posts lists in a bit.

    Well, I'm finally glad it's back online, but a little head's up would be nice in the future. That way I can schedule my own overdue tasks to complete while you're hard at work revamping the site.

    I'm sure I'm gonna like it as soon as I figure out what color to stick with.

    Nice work.

    I actually stole that from @Sombeech. We got a good laugh out of that one.

    I can't log in from tapatalk. There is only a "join" option, no login option. This is an issue because I pretty much exclusively use mobile for access.

    Hmm not sure. Are you sure you aren't attempting to login to the Tapatalk network itself, which is separate from Bogley?

    And just to make sure we can still upload from Tapatalk....
