I'm with you Islandmade my brotha. I do the same thing and have the same question.Sorry, what I’m asking is…how do I switch from mobile to full version. My iPhone automatically gives me the mobile version, but I like using the full version on my phone so I’d there still a “full version” option so I can view the full version on my mobile device?

And How do we see other people's status updates?
We are excited to announce that we are live on our new forum platform!
It’s been a long time coming. Let’s face it. Sometimes older forum technology lags behind other parts of the internet. Although seeing the same format for a long time is comforting, the member experience shouldn’t include dealing with outdated, unsafe, slow software.
The transition to a new platform will never be 100% smooth but the days of dealing with out of date forum software are over. We have teams dedicated to building a world-class community for you. The development has been steady with regular software releases since May 2019. Asking members for feedback and coming up with ideas for improvement is what we want.
Speed and Reliability Are Key
No one should have to wait for information. This site has been built to be much faster and more reliable, period.
New Homepage Experience
Our algorithm will serve a personal customized feed based on your prior engagement with content on the site. If you’ve liked and or commented, or are following certain topics that are of interest to you, similar content will appear at the top of the homepage.
We have introduced new search algorithms, powered by an industry-leading AI platform, to help you find information faster. We plan to roll out new features to continue improving search, and to power many additional areas of the forum.
Due to the volume of content, our search platform may take some time to complete indexing over the first few days after migrating. During this process, you may see a limited number of posts until indexing has been completed. We appreciate your patience.
Finding Your Way Around
We have made the design clean and simple to use. Near the upper right-hand corner of the community, you will see navigation icons.
The first icon is for what’s new on the site.
Clicking on it, by default, will take you to new unread posts. On that page, you can click on additional tabs as well, such as Popular, if you prefer to view active topics.
Clicking the list icon next to “NEW” will bring you to the full forum listing.
Clicking your avatar will give you a drop-down menu for all things related to your account.
You can also navigate more by clicking the 3 vertical dots.
We have introduced Dark Mode. One of our favorite features allows you to access the site with a power-saving, and easier on the eyes dark mode. You can access it in the drop-down menu under the 3 vertical dots.
Now you can save your favorite discussion threads and posts! Bookmarks are a handy way to remember and easily find great content or stuff you want to read later.
We also wanted to make it easier for new users to understand the lingo of forums. We have cleaned up various language to more commonly recognized phrases including:
Take a tour and look around! Check out the Help section for some quick FAQs about the new platform.
- Following - Thread subscriptions, and Watched are now known as Following
- Conversations - Private Messages or PMs are now conversations and can be accessed from the user avatar drop-down in the main navigation
- Showcase - Showcase is designed for users to "showcase" items/projects through the use of uploaded images, text descriptions and custom content categories. It’s a way to visually and textually provide detailed information on the content you wish to share. The showcase would be similar to a catalog, whereas the gallery would be like a photo album. It can be accessed from the drop-down menu with the 3 dots.
Please keep all feedback, questions, concerns, requests for help, etc. regarding the new platform right here in this Feedback thread. This will help us make sure not to miss a request for help and also let us pass along your thoughts to our Product team. The Admins and I will be here to help along the way taking note of your comments.

Hi, thanks it seems to have gone away, sorry, I was just frustrated, I will slowly learn
Bless your heart...In my humble opinion, a successful forum community has never been about the platform. It is about the amazing members who come together to share a common interest and along the way true friendships are developed.
I have been helping sites transition to the new forum software since May of 2019. In that time I have noticed that during the first 30 days or so, traffic tends to slow down a bit while folks adjust to the new navigation and features. Somewhere between 60 - 90 days the activity increases and the community begins to grow. Give it some time. We will get there.
We will be seeing regular updates that are largely fueled by community feedback. While that doesn't mean we can action every request, it does mean we are actively listening to the feedback and sharing it with the developers.
Yah I found you have to manually accept getting email notices for each one. It's in the following tab. Quite cumbersome. I also see the problem with the alerts disappearing when opened. It seems it would be easier to miss out on stuff.still not getting notices to my email,about posts?????
I found this too, Altho I’m still only getting about 1 email notice for every ten or so replies.Yah I found you have to manually accept getting email notices for each one. It's in the following tab.
