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.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to show my search results as a thread, rather than individual posts. It's painful seeing the results this way and takes forever to sort through.

Nothing is safe in my bag!

    Do you mean, if you searched for say "Callaway" and that word appeared in 25 post in the SAME thread, you'd only want to see that thread listed ONCE ? And then you would go through it to try to find something specific ?

    If so, the flipside to your request would be that in some of the longer threads you'd be searching through that thread for a looooong time. At least the way they list each individual post, there is a snippet of the thread and in that snippet you might be able to see right away that you could ignore that result.

    That said, it's been mentioned before that with no way for the user to order the results, it's a poor search function. I mean at least "oldest to newest" should be an option.

    Yea I mean if I’m searching by title “callaway” I don’t want to see 400 posts from the same thing with “callaway” in the title. That doesn’t make sense to me

    You didn't mention originally about searching in "Title".

    I agree though, if you searched for "callaway" in TITLE you should get only 1 "hit" for each thread with "callaway" in the title.

    Anyway, the search results have been mentioned before. Perhaps it's on the list.

An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
