Using Our Forum: FAQ, Tips & Other Useful Information


Staff member
Our forum software is based off xenForo, which is currently developed by former vBulletin developers. Most of you are probably familiar with vBulletin. vBulletin is currently on a downward spiral with no positive future. Security issues and the inability to keep up with changing trends in technology have made us have to choose a different direction for our forum. We think xenForo has a bright future and will be keeping the forum updated as soon as they release new features.

With that said, change is kind of hard. So I wanted to make this thread to try to make the transition easier for those new to this forum software.

Forum FAQ
The forum software comes with a basic FAQ that might answer some of your initial questions. You can find that here: Help -

Forum Layout
We offer a fixed layout by default which centers the site in the middle of your screen. If you would prefer to choose a layout that fills your entire screen you can do so by scrolling to the bottom of the page and under Website Links, click on the link that says V6 - Mustang. You will be presented with a pop up that allows you to change your layout to V6 Mustang Fluid, which will take up your entire screen.
