3/20/19 - We Are Getting Closer

We have the new Forum completely done, up, and running. Pictures and graphics are much clearer and posting is very easy and straight forward. Plus it looks pretty nice too! 

Most of the web pages are done now, but we still need a few more days to be completely done with that yet. However, all of the main pages are up. What's left is some of the sub-pages. We are keeping some of the old site so you'll still recognize us. The gray Banner on top is staying but we've modified the Logo. Our "Question & Answer" door, frame, and hardware combo picture has become our "trademark" and it stays. Everything else is new and the Main Page (Home) looks a lot different. There is still going to be a "Slide Show" installed there with some nice Industry related pictures. In any case, 4 or 5 more days and we'll be all set. But please feel free to jump into the Forum, if you care to. Lots of info is here now and we'll have the rest here very soon. 

 

3/11/19 - We Are Close To Finishing Up An Entire Web Site Upgrade

We are in the process of a full upgrade to the site. The last full upgrade we performed was in 2011. Our old Forum was no longer functioning properly, our Search page was discombobulated, and the whole site just had an old, outdated look. So we are updating every page..not only in appearance, but the information as well. We have installed a new Forum and we're in the process of setting that up and transferring some posts over. We have a lot of the new pages updated and done...but we still have a bit more to go. We should be all set in another 2 weeks.

The old site was all HTML. We upgraded to PHP (the latest version which is 7.2 currently). There is still some HTML here, but most of this site is now PHP 7.2. It's more "stable" and we can do more things with it. The Forum will be all PHP.

We will make another post when the site is completely upgraded. This site has been here since 1995, so it has gone through a few upgrades now. We'll be done soon!
