We made some small improvements this month:

-The forum will now support LARGE image uploads, as of today. Smartphones and tablets take HUGE pictures now, many of them 4k or even 8k supersized pictures. For some time now, the forum would REJECT such uploads, and you would have to manually re-size them before uploading. Now the forum will accept anything you throw at it, and it will automatically re-size the image down to 1600x1200 (max), before storing and attaching it.

-Xenforo 2.2.6 was installed on July 10th. This is the software platform that the Grumble uses, and the vendor released a new update. The update is basically a bug fix, and addressed more than 20 issues and small improvements.

-Added "Advanced Search" to the secondary bar above, for an improved search experience. You can search just topics or full text, by user id, or just for a certain forum.

-Added some friendly banners that show only in certain places, and for certain levels. For example, banners to help people register, banner explaining what should be in a for sale ad, banner explaining what comes with an optional donation, banner making it easier to make a new post, etc.

-Some cosmetic changes were done to the layout. Change the spacing of blocks and text, the weight of forum icons, added round edges to boxes, changed how post counts are displayed, added web page to profile pages, put a direct link to profile pages when you hover over someones nickname, improved email deliverability with the latest encryption and security features (dkim, spf, dmarc, etc).

If you have any problems or questions, let us know.

We're glad to have you on G!
