Welcome to the new and improved Forever Pontiac!

We upgraded the software that our forum runs and there is a lot of new goodies! Things are easier to do and function. As with upgrading to new software, please let us know in this topic if you find anything that is broken or not as it should. There are a few things that are still "rebuilding" and should soon finish (such as old posts and their formatting).

Just some of the new features:

  • Responsive layout (no more different desktop and mobile versions of the site, it is 1 experience!)
  • Update WYSIWYG editor for posting. See everything in real time!
  • Drag and drop uploading!
  • Mentions (@useranme will allow you to alert anyone)

Overall we are excited to welcome you to this and are in process of upgrading our "How-Tos" so please be patient.

Yup, it's a responsive theme so no longer are there any "desktop" or "mobile" modes. It's all one experience and will adjust depending on the screensize

Nice! Yeah, I see that too. Am looking into it, one of the icons isn't loading correctly.

Yeah, I can add another theme that doesn't have responsive but that means I have to manage 2 themes. We'll see :lol:

Cool, yup most things are different and you can build your own stream to configure what you want to see. I'll probably be changing it as time goes on but felt bad asituation we just announced it

Yep now I can reply lol, thanks Ringo. 

Only problem I have right now is Tapatalk doesn't seem to be working now. Sign-in service and trying to manually enter username and password isn't working. 

Also, will the shoutbox be returning?

Other than that Ghost already touched on some of the things I was thinking like the POTM picture.

Looks great overall!

Haven't installed Tapatalk just yet. It is known to cause issues so letting the forum software run on it's own right now till I can ensure everything is OK.

I want FP classic.

As this is our 2nd major change in the past 6 years we've been around, I understand that there may be hesitance. Overall though it is a great leap forward into technology and makes some things that were not so easy in the previous version, easier now. Give it a chance and I really think you'll like it ;)

It's not so much hesitation, as 'can't find shite'.  It's like when the Stacey David website did it's last upheaval.

The New Posts button was a personal favorite of mine.

Click "Unread Content" or in the navigation Activity -> Unread Content OR Activity -> All Activity

Same results but new look and feel plus different names as there is much more flexibility.

@Ghost and @Professur, if you do not like the current one, you can create your own. You can "edit" a default one by under the title clicking "Edit this Stream" and you can decide what you want to see. Alternatively, you can go to the "Activity" tab and click "My Activity Streams" and then click "Create New Stream" and select what you want to see in a stream.

Awesome job! Great design skills!  To have those kind of skills AND own a Pontiac... hmmm On a side note fellas, I was on my way to O'reilly yesterday and a G8 passed me and we both turned into O reilly. She was a 6.2 and sounded freakin wicked. (My first one to see up close - don't get out much) Might have a new wish for Xmas...?

      Hi my 92 Pontiac Bonneville ssei only has 100k miles on it but for some reason all the gauges dont want to work they going up and down expect the RMP AND THE SPEED wich work fine but everything thing else looks like its trying to have a heart attack. Could someone please help on this issue

      Hey, all-
      I've been combing through my '63 Chassis Manual, but I can't come up with much. The best I can do is to get the angle visible from the rear quarter. I've been told that adjusting these are a "lost cause", but is that true? Most of this is new to me(and I don't want to do any irreparable damage), so I'm trying not to overthink things and wondering if there's a simple solution I wouldn't be privy to. 
      As well, the passenger side fender has a dummy mirror that is at the exact same viewing angle rendering them both basically useless(besides aesthetics). Is there a way to change the fixed angle? It'd be fine if it was at least in the ballpark... 
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello, all. 
      I've lurked here for a while now and I finally made a purchase in early November. I'd been looking for a '63 Pontiac full-size for about 5-ish years by that point. I wanted a nicely presentable driver that I could learn by replacing/upgrading things as I went, plus it'd be a great bonding opportunity for my boys and I as well. My grandfather was a mechanic at the local Pontiac-Cadillac dealer, but the Pall Malls got him long before I hand the chance to learn much from him. I'm working on power steering at the moment, coming up north I think has shrunken the torque converter seal, so that's next and a few odds/ends this winter need done. I also bought a reproduction '58 plate with the name of the little baby we lost inbetween the two we have and got a '63 sticker for it. I also plan on some sort of small dashboard container for some of his ashes at some point. Meet "Jonah". Car has PS, PB, A/C and power bench seat with 74k miles. Thanks for reading!

      I just bought this GT from a private party. I have been driving a 2001 Chevy Malibu for 14 years because I had a '97 Pontiac Grand Prix but it was totalled by a young lady, on the phone, in her daddy's SUV. I'm so glad to be back in one of these. Very different feel and ride than the Malibu !
