I hope everyone likes all the new features on the new forums including now having the ability to post something here and share with any of the social network sites, a new chat room, a new photo gallery coming soon, and much much more. I hope you like everything so far... we plan on adding even more. Read the main thread about the forums and learn how to view the message board now with a mobile phone ap, and much more.

In addition to all of this we have NEW features coming soon to your haunt profile, a new Hauntworld.com home page, a new featured haunted house page, we are correcting major errors in our site that I only became aware of recently that are hurting our google rankings, those are being fixed, we've reinvested every dime into this site. I hope you can suggest other features you'd like to see on teh site as we go along.

All of the new Hauntworld features will be done by March 10th (Transworld Show).

New features for your profiles include ... well you'll see soon enough. Let me say this that we are really excited.

Also, the iPhone app, it costs $2.99? I don't mind paying but I was confused, it brought me to tapatalk in the app store? Is that right and how does it work?

Would they be like target silloettes? When they turn sideways they get too skinny to hit! hahaha!
I think this new stuff is easier to look at and I have been fumbling my way through it.
Is the state capital of Missouri really "The Darkness", Larry? I kept getting "Wrong" when I typed that in for some reason.

Larry, what happened to the Sticky thread "New Forums... Need your help"? It shows that its closed to me.

1 glitch I noticed is at the bottom of a multi paged thread. At the "Quick Navigation" tab where you can quickly jump from one Forum section to another.

When you click on the tab, and it brings up the forum selection mini screen... the page #s of your current thread overlap the mini screen, and it covers up a forum selection.

Also, I wanted to add that I like the idea of having a personal picture gallery.

And I'm having trouble finding the new iPhone app. What do I need to search for in the AppStore? I searched for "Tapatalk", "Hauntworld" (which didnt really look like it was it), and "Hauntworld Forum" with no luck.

And the new setup for posting pics on here is cool. I like how it saves previously posted pics to be able to repost.

Your other Sticky thread is closed, so I'm adding this note here for you guys to review. Your link for the Chat room on the VB menu bar on top goes to the 123flashcaht plug-in, but you've got the other "Live Chat" link below the leaderboard ad linking back to the old flash chat. It's a little confusing and you might want to pick one or the other and fix the links.

Larry is it possible to have the percentage % of the pm's full or not full put back on by the notifications of pm's on the home forum page? I get alot of pm's and I would like to know how full they are so I dont miss anyones message.
Thanks,
Damon

"You get alot of PM's?
PM's = Pregnant Mothers? Do you know what's causing it? Stay in bed for a few days (Alone) see if this clears it up?
Just trying to help.

The mobile Tapatalk client is $2.99 for iPhone/iPad, Android, and WebOS. The iTunes App Store link is here (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tapatalk-forum-app/id307880732?mt=8).

The makers of vBulletin also just released their own FREE! iPhone app which can be downloaded here (http://itunes.apple.com/app/vbulletin-mobile/id401734344?mt=8).

If you're using IE 7 or newer, ensure Compatibility Mode is turned OFF. When it's turned on, some of the pop-up menus display underneath other page elements. Working with Compatibility Mode is explained here (http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html).

The mobile app is listed in iTunes App Store as Taptalk Forum App by Quoord System. You can find it here (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tapatalk-forum-app/id307880732?mt=8). Once Tapatalk is installed, search for "hauntworld" or "haunted house forum" within the app.

The vBulletin App on iPhone will only access vBulletins Forum and will not allow you to access any other forums that are using vBulletin. So hauntworld is out using that app... I agree with tapatalk, I wrote about it quite some time ago on these forums but it didn't seem like anyone was interested... hopefully we can stir some more interest now! :-)
Best,
Bill
