    It's been quite some time since we opened NWFA Version 3 for testing and input, many thanks to those who shared their thoughts. We've taken your input into consideration, particularly regarding the menu systems, and went to work creating the second iteration of V3. After nearly three months, I'm happy to announce the release of this major update.

    Rather than walking you though the ins and outs, I'm going to leave it up to you to explore, as if you were a new user here. Please let us know what you think; good, bad, or otherwise!

    Dagnabit... I was all used to V3.1, then you done swapped it V3.2 which at first glance looks like V2-ish, again.

    As long as I can find the "what's new" or "new posts" I'm good!

    It would still be nice to have a way to mark all forums read without having to go into a thread.

    OK, that was weird. I clicked on the above link and found that my settings were on the default view of v2 (for some inexplicable reason) and I swapped it back to v3... disregard my earlier post, it's back to what I was pre-dagnabitting about.... LOL.

    I do 99.9% of my web surfing on my iPhone 5 with the latest iOS updates.

    Ah yeah, sometimes settings can get a bit jumbled when switching between versions.

    I think the site defaulted everyone that was on the V3 beta back to V2. If the site looks like it's the V2, on the right hand side there is a link that says "Switch to NWFA V3."

    I liked the previous v3 menus with the new posts link and alerts and conversations a little better than the new style. I guess it's minor to have to click an extra link to get to the new posts. Also the menu on the right seems a bit clumsier with the entire options menu coming up rather than just the alerts,convo's, watched threads. I also am noticing that I am unable to edit my post while in my iPhone 6 with latest updates. Might be a phone issue and not a site issue though.

    The edit issue might be a permissions issue, since I just did it with my iPhone 5. Give it a try when you're at a computer and let me know :)

    Yeah I probably should have mentioned that!

    This switch versions link at the top of the page will let you switch between versions.
