  1. Some of the optional themes were outdated so OEM is actually a factory theme..it stays up to date all the time.  I have since deleted the older themes.

    If anyone is still seeing an error message, let me know!

  2. Posts shouldn't go missing on their own, I would suspect that they were deleted by their authors for some reason or another.  I will keep an eye out for anything weird but they shouldn't just disappear.

  3. Hey guys, we now have a new webpage for the B-Model Registry! 



    Fuzzy Buzzard (Tom Gannaway) has put a ton of blood, sweat and tears into the B-Model Registry so it absolutely deserves a safe and secure place to be hosted!  You can now register your B-Models and also download the latest edition of the registry from the link above or from the 'MORE' tab at the top of every BMT page!

    You can also visit the official B-Model Registry discussion topic, here on BMT, at the link below!

  5. We need members to add show dates to the calendar for them to show up on the index page.  I add them when I see them but I don't have all the dates and info.

    Also, check the gallery now...your truck and about 15 other vehicles were missed from the upload to the gallery.  I fixed it a few weeks ago and all should be good now!

  7. So, who has a Convoy Rubber Duck Truck and would be willing to come to our show in New Alexandria, PA 15670 on August 25th, 2018? 

    We would love to have the Rubber Duck headline the show this year in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Convoy!

    PM me or call 1-888-304-6225!



  8. I just turned on a new BMT feature called CLUBS!

    Basically, members can create and moderate their own clubs inside of BMT!  I am thinking that this would be great for maybe different models of trucks such as the B-Model Club or the A Model Club!  Maybe Antique Truck Clubs would like a club on BMT?  The possibilities are endless! 

    So anyone interested in starting a club, click the link in the nav bar above or here: https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/clubs/

    Club will need approved by me just to make sure we don't anything unsavory!  :thumb:

    Once your club is approved, go to the club home page and click MANAGE CLUB and then click TOPICS, edit as needed and SAVE!  This will create the tab where you and your new members will make posts or whatever!  You can do the same for Images, Blogs & Calendars if you wish.  It's pretty simple but if you have any questions, let me know...I will be happy to help!

  9. I had a bunch of requests on how some of the older members were able to donate to the forums and have their member status upgraded to VIP or Benefactor...the answer is that we used to have a donation plugin that allowed member upgrades but after one of the security updates, the plugin no longer worked. 

    I was able to find a new plugin that allows member status upgrades for those of you wishing to help support the cost of hosting and domain fees!  As a reward, donating members will be instantly promoted to a higher member level that includes more image and document upload space!  The benefactor plan give you unlimited uploads!  The VIP and Benefactor plans also give you a custom profile badge that appears under your avatar on all posts. 

    All member upgrades are lifetime and have no reoccurring fees!

    Remember, these upgrades are not mandatory and you will NEVER be expected to pay to use BMT!!  This donation system is purely voluntary for those that wish to donate and help support the forums.  As a reward donating members are simply fast tracked to higher member levels with extra benefits.  Each member can get to these levels by just posting and participating in the forums but it does take a lot longer.

    So, if you are interested in helping to support BMT, click the link below or the tab in the nav bar above to visit the donation page!  All donations go to help cover the ever rising costs of the BMT server account at Watt's!


  10. OK, I searched around and found a nice, light weight theme with dropdowns!  It has the features we like but still runs pretty fast and is updated!  I have made it the new default theme for BMT now!
