Default Calguns Default Style

As part of the effort to optimize and streamline CGN to deal with the recent slow downs and crashes due to a huge spike in traffic and new members I have set the default style for the forum back to the more vanilla original (1.0) style.

The 1.1 style is somewhat more server intensive do to many of the plug-ins and social media links/tie-ins. I am hoping that by minimizing these various plug-ins and links we can lessen the load on both the app server and the db server.

If you really like the 1.1 skin it is still available by scrolling down to the lower left corner of the page and using the style selector.

Thanks, Kes! I agree with Akers. I've always been running the 1.0 style anyway. It's just fine with me.

Please keep Calguns as fast as possible whatever it takes. If this needs money and hardware to make it even faster (especially the iPhone mobile app) I am sure many of us would be more than willing to contribute funds as time is money and I spend way too much time waiting for the pages on the comp and on the iPhone app to load. Thanks!

i agree with AmericanFreedom, i miss the ode' to the Supreme Court. But there is alot less lag between getting on the home page, and thread to thread.

I just went to post in a thread and hit the post button twice(on an ebook reader with a funky touchscreen) and it said i was trying to post a dupe of a post made in the past 5 min, then redirected to the thread post i made.

Its nice to not doublepost.

I was wondering what happened to the Calguns logo...

Good to hear, I'm willing to forgo social media links and the logo for smoother performance.

Thanks for hint on the link to different versions. The problem I have is on an android, search function only works if using advanced. The mobile search is great. But for some reason it keeps changing versions on me. At least now I know where to change it back.

Thank God! (and Calgun staff and management) I could not get on despite doing instructions on Calguns,org (my daughter tried for me). I know very little about computers and the language to change things. I also forget things as fast as I hear them. So Thank You very much for taking your time and effort to fix and maintain this fantastic website. I was so happy when it came on for me this morning, Good Job Calguns and Thanks!!!!! HappyDaze
