Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the new NAS-ROW and our new forums software. This is a big leap for us but we hope you'll love it. This new software brings us a new look, many new features, and--at long last--mobile device usability and an attachment viewer that doesn't suck.

Dave and I considered holding off the launch until everything was 100% in parity with the old site but then decided against it because of the broken sidebar and other major issues we were having. As such, there are some things missing from the new site and other things that may be broken. Most notably, the user garages are not yet working. We will have these fixed in the near future.

If you encounter any issues, errors, etc., please post up here or message one of us privately.

Thanks,

Chris and Dave

By the way, if you are on mobile, the sidebar boxes will appear at the bottom of the page. There's also the red New Posts button if you just want to quickly see what's new.

Awesome! I like the new look. The only thing I would say needs a tweak is the new posts window along the side. Maybe just bold the titles? But this has a nice, professional look to it! Nice update.

EDIT: actually, when not on my crappy screen that I use for photo editing, I can see that it probably is already bolded. Maybe it’s just me.

How do I exit the mobile version on my phone?
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to do that right now. I've had a few requests for it and I'm looking into it.

It's funny--when we had no mobile version, people would ask about getting a mobile version. Now we have a mobile version and people want the desktop version on mobile. LOL

I think you’re going to get people who want both. A mobile version works for some people better because it’s easier to read, and is faster to load. Over 90 percent of the time I browse this forum it’s on my phone. I like viewing the desktop version because I’ve got a large screen and I usually have a fast connection, so loading content isn’t an issue. I can see the whole page of threads, and decide which ones I want to read, or see all the classifieds without scrolling and scrolling like I would with the mobile version. If you could figure out a way for mobile users to see the desktop version, that would be cool :cool:.
