Hi Everyone,

In the coming days, we are planning a big move of this forum to the Xenforo platform. We think its going to help keep the site more up to date going down the line as vBulletin simply isn't getting updated anymore the way it used to.

In the same process we will be integrating MK6 closer with the other Golf forums (MKV, MK7, MK8). What this means is that your user account will be shared between all four sites. I think that will be a major bonus

What this all means for you?
#1: Align Your E-mail Address between all the sites
If you do have accounts on the other GOLFMK sites, make sure that you align the e-mail addresses between all your accounts. All the user accounts will get merged based on your e-mail address. What this will mean is that your post-count and reputations will be based on the cumulative from all the sites, so you are going to want to maximize that!

#2: Take notes of your favorite threads / subscriptions
Its not clear if subscriptions will carry over correctly, as the URLs to threads will change. So write down the title of the thread and maybee the thread starter's name somewhere so you can trace your way back to the thread via search or google. Hopefully the integration will be smooth and this wont be a major problem, but no promises!


Current Status:
Sites merged:

Bummer about the switch to Xenforo. Xenforo is basically unusable on iOS devices. It's unbelievably slow loading, not very well laid out with no way to exit the terrible "enhanced" mobile view, etc. vBulletin may not get updated, but it's much more user friendly.

Time to switch to Tapatalk, assuming it'll still be compatible.

Make sure whatever email account is on the MK8 forum is the same as the one here and you get to keep your username with everything merged when the time comes. Let me know if you have trouble with that

We will probably come up with our own mobile view if the XF one is really bad, havent had a chance to play with it yet. Down the road we might make our own app, since we are not the biggest fans of tapatalk, but it is what it is...

You will need too. iOS Users, and there are many of us, will be having issues for certain.

However, if you implement a mobile view similar to something like https://www.bladeforums.com which uses xenforo, it could be fine. I haven't had trouble in mobile view in that site.

I think there are some bad xenforo implementations, but some work fine. Are you confusing it with vBulletin? Thats what vortex uses and I find the "enhanced mobile view" to be abhorrent and unusable, and there is no way to exit it easily.

Agree if there is issues on iOS devices, I will not be much from my mobile stuff.

Worst case scenario, people can use a desktop browser :D



Just kidding. Put your pitchforks away. Good luck with the migration. I always hated them because things popped up out of nooks and crannies that were hidden in crappy code.

Is it actually an iOS problem or a Safari problem? If it is Safari just use another browser? I'm assuming you can do that on iOS now, haven't used an iphone since the 3G lol
