Hey guys,

We're about to move the site to a new platform, away from Joomla! and Kunena Forum. I could use some help with identifying anything that needs fixing/changing with the new forum. Here is the link: http://test.wickededgeusa.com/forum/single-forum/1-main-forum/. I've already identified the following things below but hope that you guys will find others that would improve your experience:

• The forum:
o I would like it to look like our current forum
o I would like the default page to be “Recent Topics” like it is on the current forum
o The users should be able to select how many posts per page they can see
o “Sticky” topics need to remain at the top
o Private Messages should show on any of the forum pages
o No images from the forum are showing. This is very bad and will need to be fixed before going live.

A couple of things to note: 1) This new forum was created with an old database so recent posts aren't included. When we go live, we'll pull the most current database and start with that. 2) The images will be uploaded when we go live.

Thanks in advance for any help. Whatever you guys come up with, I'll send it along to the programmers so we can get it included.

Our actual names instead of our nom de guerre are appearing.

The knife data base is quite a bit different.

The header still lacks the "hot chicks" of a garage wall calendar :)

Great news, Clay! Kunena and me, we never became real friends.

I'm currently on holiday with a really bad Internet connection, but when I'm back, I'll also participate in the testing!

I'd like to see a sorting option in the forums. Sorting any or all the headers, ascending/descending value from A-Z, Z-A, or numerical, ect. I didn't see a search option for the forums. The search bar at the top only worked (for me) for the rest of the site, not the forums. Hope this helps!

There is a search option in the tabs row (first tab says "index" 2nd is "recent topics" last is " search").

I see that on the current forum site, but I don't on the test site.

The only problem with the current search feature is that it doesn't work so well... for example, if I try to search titles only for '1000x' then it will show every post that has the title '1000x' instead of the one THREAD that has that in the title, and then other different threads that have it in it's title.

Also, Clay, I would really appreciate the new forum being compatible with tapatalk and be able to see and reply to pm's on tapatalk (which currently is not allowed).

thanks for getting our feedback!

A "button" at the bottom of any thread page to get back to recent topics (our current one says "forum").
