I'm having trouble with some of the social elements after last weekend's attempt at a remote edit (without enough service). Working on fixing it today.

As you've noticed I haven't released any maps as of late. Been working on a new mapping setup that'll be easier to use and it'll allow members to upload tracks and make tours, etc. on top of what we're doing.

App update - Had some setbacks in this department. It's still looking like I'll have to add app info manually to phone apps... that'll be a fing full-time job. Until there's advertising coming in to pay staff for this kinda thing, that's impossible.

New features -
Added a new Last sign in date column in user's listing

You can now configure the visibility of the steps bar during registrations

You can now configure My Photos module to only render featured photos

Added new triggers on Select Categories whenever the user tries to create a new item when selecting a category for event, pages or groups

Event iCal format now supports rich text format for Microsoft Outlook Calendar

Fixes -

Updated integrations with Windows Azure Translation to work with its latest API
Fixed javascript errors on the page when integrated with Open Street Maps
Fixed photo icon showing up on toolbar in Vortex theme
Fixed issue with digest e-mails not rendering correct hyperlink for activities
Optimized process for starting a mass message to more than 1,000 users
Fixed issue with the path to files if site runs on a chroot environment
Updated user experience for table listings at the back-end
Fixed an issue when editing a post with GIPHY
Fixed errors generated on the title of the group filters
Fixed issue with activity stream ordering when a comment is posted on a photo in an aggregated photos list
Fixed issue with users not being sorted correctly when admin is trying to sort by the users ID
Fixed possible issue when an event is deleted at the back end
Addressed performance issue when Amazon S3 storage is being used
Fixed e-mail template that is used when a user is banned
Fixed issue with file custom field not being responsive
Sharing button now works with SH404
Fixed issue with installer plugin not installed when installing or upgrading causing issues with the single click updater not functioning correctly
User points will now be applied when a comment is removed from the video (I don't have points turned on right now)
Fixed issue with Events iCal export not working correctly when there is a line break in the description of the event
Fixed integration issue with user listings
User points will now be correctly applied to users when their photo album or photo is deleted from the site
Standardized Featured titles throughout
Fixed issue with mp4 files not being uploaded due to the case sensitivity of the file extension
Fixed issue with Events module not displaying event date when using horizontal layout
Create Event button should only be visible if the user truly can create an event
Fixed issue with comment participants not getting notified when there are more than 2 people in a thread
Fixed issue with recurring events not inheriting cover photo
When admin posts are excluded from the site, will no longer notify users of the admin's post in the event, group or pages
User points are only awarded once for video creation (upload or external videos)
Fixed possible issue with multiple users being invited into a conversation
Admin module will now display statistics about audio files
Added "new-password" autocomplete attribute to prevent auto-completion by password managers trying to autofill passwords
Fixed issue with notifications displaying language constants when user comments on the post cover or picture of a group, event or page
Prevent parsing new urls by Liveleak as videos
Event start date will be used as is without any offset modifications regardless of the origins of the country hosting the event

Right now I'm designing the new site. As stated in January and periodically along the way, our site is in need of a revamp. We're going to forgo the community and forums since people rarely use them and focus on directory listings, enhanced mapping, reviews, and trail data, and then simply make it where you can comment on any of the articles. We'll then have simple event signup as we had in years past so clubs and ambassadors can still make events on our site.

Most of our program costs have doubled, and licenses are coming due in August, we're simply taking a different path to reduce costs since most people don't use the forums or community anyway.

You'll be able to join memberships through the store, but the membership program is going away.

It's been very tough on our budget not hosting as many rides, but we're seeing more ambassadors, more clubs, and more members taking the reigns and posting about rides and when they're going out so others can join them. That's the key.

The new home page will give you all the info on what's up with clearer menus and less fluff. It's our hope to make a very simple site that easy to use and fast.

I'd like to focus on ramping up the newsletter and eventually printed magazines to highlight what the 4x4 clubs in Wisconsin are doing, etc.

The anticipated switch will be in the coming weeks, a bonus of not hosting so many rides, I actually can take the multitude of hours to get this all done.

I've taken my sweet time thinking things over on how to redo the website to make it less confusing, more responsive, and to get ready for the phone apps. Taking down a lot of the old stuff, making it maps and events focused, redoing the mapping area to list tours over small trails and locations over dozens of just little trails, switching those over to waypoints within a park vs separate listings.

On top of events and trail maintenance and embroidery, this has all been very difficult to concentrate on. The loads of hours it takes to do all this is daunting and I'm just one person who needs to stop doing rides, but that's the only way we fund things to if I stop doing rides, there isn't enough coming into the coffers to keep going. Product sales are poor, advertising isn't set up as we wait for the non-profit status to be approved from the IRS... it's such a limbo right now not being able to apply for grants and going crazy with site work, missing family time, the whole ball of wax.

Going to take down the Trail Ambassador pages and replace it with the club pages, then the group area people can make their own groups for things. Forums are still pretty empty and I get constant complaints the site is too complicated so going to axe a lot of stuff off here to see if it helps.

Apparently the email account This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. that sends out all the email notifications was disabled from sending updates. I fixed this so you should get email notifications again.

Continuing to move sponsors over from the old map software to the new sponsor area. Took out the business membership and added it to the store since there are so many options. https://rl4wd.com/shop/RL4WD-Business-Membership-p236525729 made it a tab in the join section as well.

For fun, made a free game area - https://rl4wd.com/home/games

Continuing to work towards the new design and huge map directory with big tours all in one listing. Now that there is a break in events for myself, I can work on this more at night and on the weekends.
