Good Evening IW Community:
We want to thank all of you for being a part of the new IW platform and having some patience during the go live period. We unexpectedly had to launch about 2 weeks early causing a few bugs that we have been working on resolving for the past few weeks. We also have been working on updates and adding suggestions, you the community members contributed to, to the technology. We will continue to improve, add to and expand on the innovations here at IW and are very excited at the updates and features to come frequently.
1- We had a bug in the platform that caused some users to experience login issues. Working with Sligh1 and LoneWolf we were able to isolate the issue to what we believe to be an update (most recent) to the iOS (Apple Mobile) platforms and how it interacted with the save password, cookies and sessions. We have put in place some technology that we hope has addressed this issue short term until we have a permeant fix either by the Apple Developers or by our team. We will continue to monitor this issue and keep you updated on the progress.
2- We had a bug in the platform that caused some users to experience registration issues. Working with Sligh1 and LoneWolf we were able to isolate the issue to what we believe to be an update (most recent) to the iOS (Apple Mobile) platforms and how it interacted with our security. We believe that in the iOS platform it prevented the iOS pre-defined password option from displaying during the registration process causing a freeze or no action state. We have put in place some technology that we hope has addressed this issue short term until we have a permeant fix either by the Apple Developers or by our team. We will continue to monitor this issue and keep you updated on the progress.
4- Working with Sligh1 we were able to identify and repair the legacy forum functionality and access. We have identified the issues and at this time believe we have addressed the issue in full. The legacy forum is accessible from a menu on the left side (desktop) or drop down menu on mobile. (http://legacy.iowawhitetail.com/)
5- We have developed some tech that will repair and correctly redirect any search form any search engine of a term related to the legacy forum to properly be redirected to the legacy forum for all the past 15 years of content to be viewed in READ ONLY mode.
1- We have updated the forum to allow for a comment URL to automatically be a clickable link when viewed by a member rather than having to copy and paste it in your address bar (YA! for Mobile Users)
We have removed the above update #1 for URL to be clickable. We have identified an issue as a result of that update. We will keep you posted on reapplying that update.
2- We have created a IW Support Page, the page will have updates, suggestion and yes, SUPPORT. We will be able to have Tutorial Videos, File Sharing and moderator access for communication.
3- PWA Members Section is in the process of being complete and will be available for access by our PMA members. More to come on this topic soon!
We are working on a native mobile app for the IW community that will bring more modern technology and ease of use to the community. This is a work in progress and we will be updating you here. Be on the look out!
Please use our contact us form or the support page to address any site related features, suggestions or support questions. You will find a video library with tutorials and other interesting IW content.
Thank you for being a part of the IW Community.
