Before anyone starts with the "How Do I" or "This Doesn't Work" or "This Isn't Right"....

Please let me work out a few bugs. The software has been 100% re-written and there are ALOT of new things. With that, the back-end has also been re-written and so it'll take me a while to get used to it and to learn how to change things.

Cheers!

Well things are starting to make more sense with the new software. Let me explain some of the new links that you see at the top of the page:

SKILIFTS.ORG - This will take you to the SKILIFTS.ORG website.

FORUMS - That will take you to the discussion forums.

MEMBERS - This is member services (ie Member List).

PORTAL - Hasn't been setup yet, but will contain things like top 10 discussions, blog links, gallery links, etc.

TRACKER - Submit any bugs or errors you might find in the FORUM SOFTWARE or the SKILIFTS.ORG website.

CALENDER - Calendar of events.

LINKS - Website links, go ahead and let me know if you want any specific categories added. You can website links here too.

BLOGS - Member blogs. You can create your own.

GALLERY - Chairlift galleries by manufacturer. You may add images.

Do you speak German? Something shifted and now the internal german translation has over-written the english prompts. I am attempting to fix it, but its a bit deeper than what I thought. I deleted the german language from the system, but its still embedded.

Working on it, so until then... speak german. :)

Line for line, its complete!!!! If you see any german words or missed words, please let me know. With changing over 3,000 phrases and words there are bound to be mistakes.

Thanks.

Thanks for your hard work on getting things back to normal Bill!

However, is the 'm' in multiQuote supposed to be a capital 'M'?

Bill,

Any reason as to why you did not have IPS solve this? Since you are paying a pretty penny for the lic.

Im ursprünglichen Sinn ist ein Skilift eine Seilbahn zur Beförderung von Skiläufern mit angeschnallten Skiern (Schlepplift). Im erweiterten Sinn zählen alle Anlagen zur Beförderung von Ski- und Snowboard-Fahrern dazu. Die Lifte können im Sommer aber auch zur Beförderung anderer Sportgeräte benutzt werden (Sommerrodel, Mountainbikes, Big Foot-Roller). In sogenannten Bikeparks werden zur Beförderung von Mountainbikern neben Luftseilbahnen auch Schlepplifte eingesetzt.

Große Hersteller sind Doppelmayr, Garaventa (Zusammenschluss mit Doppelmayr), Leitner und Poma (2002 von Leitner akquiriert).

Emax, that was very informative. Sounds like something one of the manufacturers would put on their websites! I had no idea they could be used in bike-parks! :w00t:

Because I did not want to wait 3 or 4 days for them to get to my submitted ticket. They have a big backlog due to the release of 3.0.
