New Sports Forums

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Sure, Sacramento is home to the Kings, Monarchs (folded in 2009) and the River Cats, but many people may be surprised to learn that there is a lot more to the professional sports scene… So, the pro sports forum is splitting up into individual forums for teams such as the Kings, River Cats, Mountain Lions, Sirens & Capitals.

Here are some direct links to the new forums:

http://sacforums.com/forum/184-sacramento-kings/

http://sacforums.com/forum/185-sacramento-river-cats/

http://sacforums.com/forum/186-sacramento-mountain-lions/

http://sacforums.com/forum/187-sacramento-sirens/

http://sacforums.com/forum/189-sacramento-capitals/

Of course, if you feel a team is missing and needs their own forum, be sure to post a suggestion! :)

Site Overhaul Nearly Complete

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

It’s been a long couple weeks… Actually, it’s been longer than that, but I’ve been working on the actual forum conversion for over a week and I’m finally at a place where I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Of course, this site is a constant work in progress, but my checklist is getting smaller on a daily basis.

There are still several issues that still need to be addressed, so this won’t be the official announcement listing all that’s new. But, be assured that there are extensive changes, from the new design and logo to the new forum script, which still needs to be integrated into the new design. I hope you enjoy everything the new site has to offer!

Please feel free to explore, see what’s new, kick the tires, and let me know if you find any major problems.

Update on Site Updates

Monday, September 20th, 2010

The site overhaul has taken longer than expected, specifically the forum conversion. While the database has been converted from the current (old) forum, the new forum needs to be moved over from the test environment.

The old forum is closed. Please note that if you registered and/or posted after the database was backed up and before the forum was closed, you will need to re-register/re-post. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I’ll post updates here and on Twitter, so keep an eye out for the relaunch announcement.

If you’re reading this blog, then you know that I’m busy with the site overhaul, or it’s complete. Either way, you’ll see the new design and should have access to the new forum. Please comment here, or in the feedback forum if you see anything that needs to be fixed.

Site Updates This Week

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

There are quite a few updates/changes coming this week and, obviously, this blog is one… And, if you’ve been to SacForums.com before, you’ll definitely notice the new design and logo. This is pretty much a complete overhaul of the entire site!

Most importantly; however, is the forum conversion from SMF to IPB. InvisionBoard has a lot more to offer, in my opinion, in regards to end user experience, admin control and updates. I think you’ll like the change.

A couple of things previously set up, but not added to the site until now are the Twitter profile and Facebook page. The latest @SacForums tweets will be found at the bottom of the page. These will continue to be integrated into the site as things progress.

Finally, some contests are in the works, so get ready for that. If you are associated with a local business and would like to sponsor a contest, your help would be greatly appreciated!

So, I hope you’ll enjoy the new SacForums.com and help support by spreading the word!

Thank you,
Eric

New SacForums.com Blog

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

As part of the upcoming site overhaul planned for SacForums.com, a WordPress blog has been added. This blog will be used to provide site news, updates and announcements. It will also serve as way to showcase featured forum topics and activity.

Once the other new site features are implemented, it will become more clear whether or not the blog will be a permanent feature. I’m anxious to take the new site live and share the updates with Sacramento!

Thank you for visiting and I hope you’ll enjoy the work that’s going into the overhaul.
