Website Moved

Post by ralphwiggum »

Tonight I migrated this site to a completely new host. Users should see a noticeable difference in speed. If you notice any bugs or issues now that the move has taken place, please post them here or PM me so I can take a look at them further.

Thanks!

Thanks for maintaining this site! It's a huge service to our community, and from the spammers that I notice occasionally burst through the defenses, obviously not something that just runs itself.

Thanks for all you do to host this site, Tim. It is appreciated.

Two things I noticed. Clicking on the "Wisconsin Pinball" logo at the upper lefthand corner doesn't bring you back to the home page. Also, as I navigate through the website, the "Board Index" bar doesn't increment further as you go to deeper levels. Before the update, you could use that to navigate back to different levels.

thanks,
Eric

I think the logo changed to be essentially a “refresh” a while ago. I used to use it too, but have now conditioned myself to using “Board Index”.

Thanks, I never noticed these behaviors, but I just fixed both of them. If you run into anything else, just let me know.

So true.... I had a guy contact me looking to sell a bunch of System 11s on the cheap, and rather than steer him to this shitty site, I sent him to Facebook Marketplace..... :twisted:

Thanks for the fixes, Tim.

On the mobile version, the header says "GRAAND NEW" rather than Wisconsin Pinball. Not sure if it is a website issue or my phone.

Happens on PC also.

I think it happens when you back out to the main page from being in a thread?

Try hitting Ctrl and f5 to do a full refresh. You may have initially loaded the site when the template was first applied.

I am unable to get that template logo to load on any device, but I think your cached copy is loading it.
