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 .

    This is the place to post pics of Napoleonic artifacts and antiques such as firearms, swords, flags, badges, insignia, military orders and decorations, etc.

    Please, continue to post your uniform pics in the Best Uniform thread.

    Standard of the Grenadiers a Cheval of the French Imperial Guard, 1st squadron.






    Eagle of the Grenadiers a Cheval of the Imperial Guard, 1st squadron ( model 1804 ). This Eagle was carried in all the campaigns from 1805 to 1813, including the battle of Eylau ( see the painting ). It's the sole Imperial Guard eagle in existence today.








    More on the way...
