    The store will be closed through the upgrade. But when it's back up we'll have what you're looking for!!

    Definitely this ^^^.

    I have an Android device. I just clicked the "Search" tab. The drop-down opened up. I pressed into the area where you type in the word/phrase you want to search. The drop-down disappeared. Keyboard stayed open though. Started typing to see what would happen. A Google search bar dropped down from the top of my screen.

    Many times I have tried searching for something, and nothing is recognized. When I first joined years ago, it worked quite well.

    There used to be a "Member Search" or "Member" button. It has not been viewable since for a very long time, from any of my Android devices.

    From Internet Explorer, if I view a member's public profile, the tabs for Statistics, will disappear intermittently. So that makes it very difficult to find threads which they have started. Since sometimes the search feature doesn't work

    The members online, as well as adds from the vendors, don't show up on the home page, with Android devices. Nor do the polls and member donations.
    .
    That is all that I have for now.

    Yes I enjoy I.E. as it is much easier to select photos in threads then copy and paste them elsewhere. Unlike Safari or Google Chrome.

    I will be happy when the mobile version, tablet / phone UI is up and running. I miss checking the site from my phone during the day.

    Just had another idea. When there is a poll on a thread and someone votes and does not post it brings the poll back up in new posts. Really annoying when someone new comes to the site and votes on every poll and it covers the whole page with old polls. It may just be me but it really drives me nuts lol

    Can we get a separate page that has a long list of active threads not just recent threads like on the home page but something showing a chronological order of post that day or two

    If I read you right, this already exists:
    http://www.xr-underground.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew

    Click on UNREAD POSTS right under your name at the top right of the page.

    Was looking for something like when you not logged in and all threads in the last 24 hours pop up but would like that when your logged on so that if you posted on a thread and you hit the active post button, your thread is on the top and as others post on threads, you recently posted on gets bump down the list. Basically tracks all the recent threads of the last day or two. Is that a better explination :dontknow:

    It's going to be a while. This thread was just a notice that it's in the works. We all do this as a hobby after work and I've been having to work tons of extra hours the past month at work so it's been slow going.

    Polled added. Do you think XRU should go white? Or should we keep it dark/black like it is now? I'm interested to see what you all think.

    I think it looks fantastic now. How much better can it get?

    Don't go white I absolutely love this forum black and got my CSRT4 to switch becuase of it. Black is easier on the eyes and easy to read and helps alot when viewing at night!
