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.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

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 .

        You mean sailors who became artilleryman, there was no such thing as
        French marines just to let you know.

            First of all, welcome aboard Grognard1789.

            They are not midgets, they are children from the Military School.

              • Hussards forever

                My favourite napoleonic uniforms: the hussards. The uniform in attachment belongs to the prince of Salm-Kyrburg, ADC of Napoleon on 1806. Really impressive.

                      About the full yellow and full white uniforms of Neapolitan Guard's Hussards, in Italy we think that these plates are completely wrong, result of the artist's fantasy. Plates from Neapolitan artists depict different uniforms, as in attachment.

                          This is the first time I hear about this issue. Thanks for the heads up.

                            Interesting. How old were they? Did they already practice with muskets?

                            A midget regiment would be very cool, though, thanks for shattering my dreams.
