New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know. Please only send real issues not things like I hate the colors of the site or the site looks cheap now. I am trying to get as many issues fixed for you as i can and If i have to read through stuff like that it's going to take me longer to get stuff fixed.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

          I always loved Hussars, but the Chasseurs a Cheval are pretty slick too. I have a soft spot for the Scots Greys.

                      ... had a bloody encounter with an enemy regiment

                      their opponents and then seized their lances,
                      for the lance was the favorite weapon of the Poles."

                              Some of the uniforms worn by the general officers were quite smart, if you compare Napoleon to his overdressed Marshals, he seemed to dress quite plain later on in his career.

                              Uniform of General of Division worn by Napoleon at the Battle of Marengo, 1800



                              Plate by Marcello Grimaldi
                              Duke Emmanuel Grouchy, the "latecomer" of Waterloo. Here he dresses in the green uniform of Colonel General Commandant of the "Chasseurs", charge received on 1809 after Marmont




                              Marechal Joachim Murat, King of Naples, c.1810, mounted with drawn sword, his horse with tiger skin shabraque; with his Neapolitan Officier dOrdonnace and a Neapolitan ADC. A Regiment of Chevau-Legers Lanciers in the back ground



                              General de Division dArtillerie, Jean Baston de La Riboisiere, 1812, in full dress uniform; General Jean Desvaux de Saint-Maurice, 1813, Imperial Guard Horse Artillery and Baron Dominique Larrey, Chirurgien-en-Chef, 1812.



                              Personalities of the Peninsular War: Joseph Bonaparte, King of Naples and of Spain, c.1808, in the uniform of the Royal Napolitan Grenadiers of the Guard; Marechal Jean-Baptiste Jourdan, 1811-1813, and Marechal Louis-Gabriel Suchet, 1811-1813.



                              Napoleon in campaign uniform, c.1809-1812, (open grey Riding coat over Colonel of Chasseurs uniform); Gaspard Gourgaud, c.1812, Officier dOrdonnance and General Jean Rapp, ADC to Napoleon.
