Update 8/17 - New board going live today.

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***


Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

When I log into this forum, there are usually a bunch of notifications. When I click on the button, sometimes there are 15 or 20 for one thread. No matter which one I click on, it takes me to the very last post in the thread. I then have to scroll back until I get to the first of the new posts, or at least, where I think the new posts started.

Any way to do this differently?

    Follow up to this.

    When I am on my iphone and I see notifications (the bell icon), if there are say 5 for a certain thread, no matter which one I click on it takes me to the very bottom of the thread. Any thoughts?


    Iphone Xs latest software.


    Thx

    That is the expected behavior As it’s 2 different processes.

    1) Is notification of new content

    2) Takes user to latest post

    Amount of notifications can be looked at but not really high on the list.

    Okay, here’s what happens on the iPhone, both on Safari and Opera.

    No matter which of the links I click, the site takes me to here.

    When I scroll up a bit, I get the very last post in the thread.

    Also, tried to delete a photo while on my phone, had to come to the PC to do it, unable to with the iPhone

    The notifications button/bell is pretty much useless on the iPhone using either Safari or Opera.

    1) What is the point of the bell showing me 127 new notifications, but when I click on it I can only see the top 6 or so?

    2) If one thread is popular, all the top notifications are often for that thread and any others get lost in this. One cannot scroll down to see the rest.

    3) Yes, I KNOW there is an all notifications button on the drop down. When I click that, I get taken to my profile, and a whole half a page of my badges before I get to the posts.

    4) Whether I click on a notification or go to the posts as described in 3) above, when I click on a post it takes me right to the bottom of the last page and I mean the very bottom (see picture above)

    Is this expected behavior?

    I cannot be the only one having this issue.

    Guess I'll check back in another 2 months or so to see if there has been a fix.
