• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Woohoo, new Forum software is up

Looks great, well done. Did we loose anything in the process? I can google old threads, but they don't seem to exist here anymore? Or am I doing it wrong?

All my subscribed threads are there. Old Google Links don't work, because the old forum was in a subdirectory "forum".

Mike mentioned above, that they are working on fixing old links.

@MikeSlub , this can be done with .htaccess rewrite rules, your web admin should be able to fix it.

This is NOT a complaint.

Could we get the 'Comic' font?
I just find many of the 'standards' lifeless.
I like to punch thangs up and that one kinda became me.


I feel so nekkid...

Fantastic job! The old site was not easy to use from a mobile phone, this is so much more user friendly, thanks!

I’ll let our “web admin” know about this. ”MikeSlub, please take care of this.,..”. 🤣

Seriously guys, we run this place on a shoestring budget. If it wasn't for our Sponsors and for "sweat equity" from Charlie and myself, we wouldn't be in business any longer. No brag, just fact - we do this because we love the place and enjoy interacting with all of you regarding our guitar passions!

I hope to get the "donations" tab set up again so folks can make some contributions to keep this place going.

So did I with the Historic Les Pauls Database. These sites are labor of love.

And I WILL contribute. I believe I may be a couple of years in arrears.
And I will attempt to git me a couple 'o years in affronts!

I'm liking the upgrade so far. I clicked on my location, Pure Michigan, in my profile and it mapped to my house!
Yes, but only for your own account. I can see my house but not your's (only your town center).

Liking the new look. Similar layout to the Tele and Gretsch forums, except sticking with the dark look is kinder to my knackered eyes...
...and there's a 'like' button 😁

Mike tried it earlier with a 'hate' button.

But I cornered THAT market in seconds after being up so he had to remove it so somebody else would get a chance.
