When Andy 2 told me about Foretravel, he said “...now go inside and Google it...”
The forum came up
I read some posts, turned to Amy, and said ”....we’re gonna own one of these....”

With us, we'd been researching WanderLodge and Fleetwood Bounder, because my brother has one.  Then one day Lynn said "Have you thought of Foretravel?  They have a good reputation."  He set me up to look at an FTX, and the FTX had everything except a Dinette.  The next one was this U225 and Lynn said it had semi-monococue frame, torsion bar suspension and a cedar wardrobe.  1,400 mile return trip in early February and we moved in March of that year.  Not enough trips since then but vaccinations are on the way.

This forum?  It's the community of like minded souls we need for information and conversation.  We have interesting skill sets, so we offer help whenever we can so do.

Thank you Michele and Steve, and once again congratulations on a smooth transition and up-grade.  Better you than me.

With the new server, is there any chance of increasing the capacity of our individual PM mail boxes?  That would be nice.

I have to discard older posts as well, maybe a way to download our individual PMs to save and then remove older ones to free up space would be nice.

On both my phone and iPad screen defaults to left side of screen losing 20% on right?
On your iPhone click on the arrow pointing to the right that should fill up the screen.

FYI Steve is aware of the intermittent glitching with quoting not formatting (showing BBCode instead) and it's being looked into.

I previously had my profile set to display posts in descending order so the most recent post in a thread was at the top.  I cannot seem to find that option now.  If it still exists, please advise on how to find it.

And like others have said, we really, really appreciate all the efforts from Michelle, Steve and the moderators for this awesome forum.

Steve seems to recall that was actually removed from the last version of the forum software, and he had "hacked" the code with remnants from a prior version to make it work.  He doesn't think that's going to be possible with the new version (it's something like 8 years' newer), but he's aware of the request.

This might help others. I just signed in to the Fourm. Upon doing so. I was able to have full access to the new system. It was working fine pre this new sign on. Except was missing bookmark and other features. All is well. Super work by our support team. Mark

Yes, ours was at 99% and now at 28%. Keep those PM letter bombs coming!

Has anyone tried to attach a photo to a PM with the new upgrade?

Thanks again for all the improvements.

Due to security concerns, attachments via PM or e-mail will not be supported.

The PM system is not and never has been intended to be a repository.  It costs server AND backup space to retain those messages, both of which we pay for.  We strongly prefer and recommend people copy the information in a PM and store it on their personal machine.

I can see the reason behind that. Attachments with photos take a lot more room than text.

Using our regular email addresses and communicating that way only takes an extra step so no big deal..

Thanks for the reply.

FYI - we are aware of the photo compression issue where uploaded images are getting pixelated.  Steve is investigating
