the framework of our site software has been upgraded but there is a LOT of work that needs to be done over the next several days. I would have liked to relaunch having more completed but am out of gas. The basics of APUG should be operations. Known bugs will be:
Navigation not 100% completed
Problems with links area
some items no longer existing (many will be ported)
chatroom does not have a popup window yet (still the old chatroom for now)
new helpdesk and knowlege base needs work but the shell is in place
Sponsors page is not up yet
new posts are showing posts from all languages, can fix that later
reply with quote coding isn't working properly -fixed
Things to note right off would be your sidebar placement is now an option in your user preferences. Also, in your preferences "user options" you will find at the bottom the new forum visibility mode, simply highlight the forums you want to ignore and save. *update* forum visibility isn't working, will have to take a look tomorrow.
I'm sure I a missing quite a bit but just be patient over the next several days and everything will fall into place.
