Massive update to the web page!

It’s stupid o’clock when I sort of finished most of the updates!

Whats the update?

Well, it’s a brand new forum and discussion link to a new sister page for the One man and his Mustang (.com) website.

The link called “Forums & Discussions” is now at the top of the side bar on the right. There is also a hyperlink to bring you straight back here again too.

I was asked a question in the comments page but I didn’t have an answer. That gave me an idea – Forum. Simple hey? err no!

(stick with me for the quick techy explanation).

The fact I am using a nice piece of software to host my blog it does not allow me to add “plug-ins”. To keep it simple I can’t create  any forums or discussion pages directly of this site for security reasons. But, I have researched all day (while out shopping), and most of the evening for an answer. I think I have found a work around. Basically I have now a sister site that links to my main site (this one), the sister site page style does allow for a more recognisable forum style update and discussions. The styles are a little different but I have tried to keep the associations as close as possible to one another.

The downside –

You as in the readers of this won’t be allowed to create the pages yourself. To get round that I have created a category of “Ask for your topics here” from a nice drop down. This will allow you to post a comment on there for things you want to see or discuss. Once it’s (as your requested topic) has started up then can post to your heart’s content on it. I plan on letting these pages run themselves with the odd chip in from me! I am allowed!

The upside –

I get to keep an eye on what gets posted, there are some people out there with strange ideas.

Updates to this site –

For a little bit of a fun I have added a countdown timer on the main site, see what you think. I may keep it there for other things, it all depends on the feed back I get!

Added a picture to the side bar of the good guys at American Autowire who have linked me on their Facebook page with that response.

Note to self – get used to calling my sites main site and forum site!

Note to self again – go to bed and re-read this before you post it!

Enough Techy Stuff – Cars

I was out all yesterday – shopping, so I missed out on some valuable Mustang minutes. I made up for it today with the second coat of POR15 on the inside of the fender. No point in pics at this moment in time (I have taken some though) as it don’t really look that much different. The man cave was freezin’! Michelin man was out again in force, but at least I was warm. As I was good boy yesterday, shoppin’.  Today I was allowed to go and get my Christmas Present; Front and Rear bumpers from a new friend of mine. They are gonna look the dogs dangly bits when I bolt them on. While I was there I was looking all around his K code 1965 fastback. Nice!

As a result of the missed Mustang minutes yesterday I will have to review the Carplan Tetroseal next weekend.

Take a look around at the new forum site, start a conversation or tell me what you want to see. Have a look at the post Old School or New School from the categories selection drop down box, it’s a comparison of most of the Mustang models over the years, whats the best looking?? Let me and the rest of the internet know your favorite!

Sorry for the late posting but I had few bugs to sort out and give the best user experience posdible.

About One man and his Mustang

I'm just a man with a Classic 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe and a collection of tools that just keeps getting bigger in order that I could do the job right. When I first started this blog this is what I wrote: I had bought a project car, that had been neglected, set fire to, rusted and abused. As a result of that she needed a bare metal strip down, a nut and bolt restoration. Four and a half years later the car was completed, on the road and shown at the UK's premier Classic Car Show, everything that was done to that car is documented here. I now have the privilege to drive one of America's most recognised cars and a true Icon, the Ford Mustang. I'm still sane after the blood, sweat and tears, so would I do it again? Oh yes!
