Hello Everyone,

We're proud to announce that the new site look and feel has been completed for prowlerforums.net! Our designers and software engineers have been hard at work on this for several months. It's designed to modernize the site, make it easier to use, and to make it more attractive to new members and guests that visit .

Please post any feedback, bugs, questions here.

The forum software we use, vBulletin, by default is not designed to be friendly to the eyes or to look modern. We went down to the nuts and bolts of the forum software and templates, and have done a ground up approach. There are several things you will notice now that the new design is live.

1) The site should be significantly faster.

We have applied every modern technique to speed up page load and tested with all modern browsers. We want the forum to be extremely fast and easy to use.

2) The site will work much better in mobile and tablet views

We've started applying responsive design, and have designed and tested against android and iPhone devices, Android tablets, and iPads. If you are sitting at your desk or on your couch, or just on your phone, the site will work much better than it did before, and load fast. We are still working on improving the experience even further in the months to come, but we wanted to launch this as quickly as we could.

3) The homepage is bright, crisp and clean.

We wanted the first page users saw to look beautiful, so that when a new guest arrives and is debating whether to join ProwlerForums.net , they see a beautiful doorway, and they walk right in.

4) Garages will be featured on the site

You can show off your ride. You can post pictures in your garage and share it with others.

5) Users will be able to register with Facebook, Twitter or Google+

6) The side bar can be hidden in your user options.

Click on my profile / user cp at the top right.

- click on edit your details on the left.
- Look for Show Sidebar on Forum Pages under Additional Information.
- Click disable and save.

7) Another new great feature is the @Mention user plugin. You can tag members by simply using the @ symbol.

8) Drag and Drop image uploader

We hope you enjoy it, and if you have any questions on the design, please let us know, feedback is appreciated.

If there are any issues you see. Post them up here and we will get them worked out.

Thanks,
-Your ProwlerForums.net Team

Or do you mean the Member list? with a listing of all members?

That will be located in Tools. We're still adding features and finalizing some tweaks.

Thanks,

Pretty nifty! I like the first impression it makes! I'll navigate around a bit before making any comments! Thanks Admin, great job (I Think!!!!!!!!!!!LOL)
Thanks! A lot of work goes into these kinds of facelifts. Glad to see you enjoy it so far!

Have a poke around. Your first stop should be the garage to show off your ride.

Thanks,

Stopped by the garage! Only saw two members! Site is very user friendly, only thing missing is more members in the garage! I'll keep playing around!
The garage is awesome. Glad to see you were able to fill out all that information about your Prowler.

Provides huge boxes to fill out all your custom stuff and much better than having a huge signature showing all your mods.

:D

The signature block was limited! Like the garage feature, and will keep adding to it. I have all kinds of pictures to add!
