Welcome To The New Bassresource.com!

Recommended Posts

I am pleased to announce the unveiling of our new redesign. It’s still the center of the bass fishing community, and BassResource.com is again setting trends by bringing you the ultimate research tool at your fingertips. This completely redesigned site brings in-depth information about bass fishing through exclusive articles, feature videos and a wealth of other original content. In addition, you can now interact with other members in new ways previously not possible.

Before I go any further, let me set the record straight: NO, I haven’t sold the site nor are there any changes in ownership whatsoever. You’ll still see the same familiar faces running the shop that you’ve seen before. What you’re seeing is a long-overdue overhaul of the site. We hope you like it!

Here’s a quick rundown of some of the new features you’ll find on the new site:

More New Features!

Twitter, Facebook, Windows Live, & Live ID Integration

Our new site supports Twitter, Facebook, Windows Live, and Live ID authentication, meaning you can join by signing in with your Twitter, Facebook, Windows Live, or Live ID account. You can sync your Twitter profile background with your profile. What's more, status updates made by you can be posted to Twitter and/or Facebook - and your updates from those sites posted to your community profiles.

New Status Updates

You can update other users on what you’re doing right now. Updates appear in your profile, and in the new Status feed. Plus, status updates can now be replied to. You can sync your Twitter and/or Facebook profiles, and update your status in each directly from your profiles. Alternatively, updates on either site can automatically update your profile status here!

Reputation

You can rate posts up or down, earning the author of that post reputation points. Members can earn badges and titles for having a good reputation, encouraging high quality posts across the board.

Topic Rating

Topics can be rated one to five stars, so you can identify the topics that others rate highly - or poorly!

Advanced Attachment Uploading

The new forum features an advanced attachment uploader which allows you to select multiple files at once, then sit back and watch them upload, complete with progress bars. And for older browsers, there's the standard upload field to fall back on.

Customize The Experience

We’ve added many options to allow you to customize your experience, including hiding signatures and avatars, default filtering options for forums, display name editing, and extensive profile settings.

New Comment and Share System Integrated Throughout BassResource.com

Now you can do more than just read articles, read forum posts, or watch videos on BassResource.com. You can now add comments and rank the pages, as well as rank other comments with your Forum ID. So if you’re logged in here, you can comment throughout BassResource.com.

We’ve also integrated Facebook, Twitter, Digg, and other popular sites throughout all of BassResource.com. So you can also easily share content via your favorite social sites.

Topic Preview

The first post and first unread post in a topic can now be read right from the topic listing, with the new inline topic preview feature.

New Content Search

New content posted since your last visit can be easily found via a handy link available on every page. Content shown can be everything you haven’t read before, or just that content posted since your last visit.

Rich Text Editing

You can compose your posts using Rich Text Editing much like in word processing software. You can use colors, choose fonts, add bulleted lists and more, for rich content creation. Or if you like traditional editing options, BBCodes are available with a simply click of the mouse.

Multi-Quote

Multi-quote lets you reply to several posts at once, by selecting those posts before hitting the Reply button. The posts can be from any topic in the community – the forum will remember which posts are being quoted.

Personal Conversations

Personal conversations allow you to send messages directly to other members, out of public view, in a topic format. Other members can be invited to existing conversations - or remove themselves, if they so desire.

Friends & Ignored Users

Members can add each other as mutual friends, enabling quick communication and being highlighted in each others' profile. And, for those situations where problems arise, you can choose to hide all content from particular users by adding them to your ignored list.

Profile Customization

You can customize your profile page by selecting a background color or background image, with tiling options. Alternatively, you can choose to automatically import your profile customizations from Twitter and/or Facebook - and keep them synced.

Profile Comments

You can leave comments on the profile pages of other members for all to see - naturally, moderators and the profile owner both have full control over content posted, or can disable comments completely if they prefer.

Activity Overview

The profile page shows an overview of everything that member has done in our community, including status updates, recent topics, posts, comments, and more.

Mini Profile Popup

Just about everywhere a member’s name appears, it can be clicked for a handy mini-profile popup. Send a PM, check reputation or find user content - without needing to leave the current page.

Privacy Controls

We now allow members to sign in anonymously, hiding them from the online users list. Members also have the option to disable personal conversations and member-to-member emails, as well as ignore other members if necessary.

Powerful Search

The new update includes a powerful search engine that enables you to find the content you’re looking for. The forums, member’s list, gallery, and calendar can be searched individually, with specialist filters and ordering options for each. There’s a myriad of options that will help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Plus, there's a contextual search bar in the global header for quick searching. And it’s FAST!

Content Subscriptions

You can "watch" (i.e. subscribe to) interesting content you find in our community. The site collates all this content and emails it to you at regular intervals as an easy-to-digest overview - or displays it in you control panel, if you prefer.

New Gallery!

Yes, you can now upload your own pictures and videos just like Flickr, Photobucket, and Picassa! Publish your favorite photos online with one click. Create stunning online photo albums to share with friends and family, or public albums for the world to see. Get notified when your "Favorites" post new photos. The new BassResource.com Gallery feature makes it easy for you to organize and edit your digital photos and videos, then create online albums to share with friends, family & the world.

Host all your images and videos for free, then share them by email or on social sites like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Easily search for videos and images with our new search tool. Make slideshows to share with friends. Plus, access your albums on your mobile phone using the mobile site.

The BassResource.com Gallery offers:

• Photo, video, and album sharing by email, IM, Facebook, Twitter, and mobile phone. Friends and family don't need an account on BassResource.com to see your stuff. They just need to click the link you give them!

• Group albums, which let you collaborate with friends and families and create an album of photos and videos that everyone contributes to.

• You can create multiple albums, which keep your photos and videos organized neatly.

• Robust searching and browsing to find the latest and best photos, images, and videos to suit your mood or entertain your friends.

• A slideshow builder for posting and sharing on your Web site, blog, or profile.

• Decide who can and can’t see your albums

• Tell a story with your photos and videos and allow whoever you want to comment.

• Add notes to explain or comment right on the photo or video.

• Favorite the photos and videos you like best to easily find them later, and see who has favorited yours.

• Add people to your albums for your reference, and so they can see what you've posted.

• Add tags to categorize your photos and videos and to help others find them in searches.

You can also:

Add places

Geo-tags are automatically added to a map if your digital camera records GPS information. You can also easily add geo-tags to your photos so that you can remember exactly where they're from using Bing Maps.

Create beautiful web albums

Show your photos at their best. View full-screen slideshows, see your pictures arranged on a global map, enjoy video playback, and more.

Utilize Full Privacy Control

Protect who sees your photos by designating them as 'family' or 'friends'. You can restrict viewing of any photo to only those you trust. Your public photos will still be accessible to everyone.

New Member’s Map!

The member’s map provides the opportunity for members to get together for a friendly fishing trip. Simply find a member near you, and contact them via the forums.

Talk to whomever you're going fishing with and come up with a plan for gas, food, and time on the water, etc. Other than that, all the rules should be decided between the individuals involved (such as how much gear the non-boater should bring, how to split costs, and other simple courtesies). Don't forget the camera and have fun!

Features include:

• Google Map Support

• Auto Center & Zoom on Locations

• Show friends only option

• Friends have green markers

• Scroll Zooming, zooms to your cursor position

• Notification for when friends update their location

It’s easy to claim your spot on the map, just enter your city and state (or your address for a more accurate marker) and that’s it!

All arrangements for friendly trips are strictly between the two parties involved and should be handled thru PM's or off site completely.

Please note: Making arrangements are your responsibility. BassResource.com cannot, and will not, mediate disputes or complaints

New Calendar!

We now have an online calendar for your use where you can place recurring events, personal reminders and special events only you can see, or share for the whole world to see. And by popular request, we now show member’s birthdays on the calendar too!

New Sitewide Search!

The old sitewide search system has been replaced by a fast, robust, and feature-rich search engine. You now can use advanced filters to easily find exactly what you need, right now, right at your fingertips.

There’s many more features for you to discover on our newly designed site (such as a new video player). So dive in, click around, and enjoy!

Looks awesome, Glenn! It's been torture without it these last couple days. Thank you!

Wow, it's good to be back. It doesn't take long for the attitude at some of the other forums to get old.

New site looks great! Thank you Glenn for what I imagine was somewhat of a difficult upgrade process. One complaint though, (and I'm curious to see if other members have run into the same problem) my password didn't seem to work and I had to request a password recovery e-mail. And no, I didn't just forget it. I checked my password (per your suggestion) before the upgrade last week. It's no big deal, as I was obviously able to change it and sign in, but I figured I'd share my experience in case other members are having the same problem.

I had the same problem. Never got password recovery email. Had to create new account. Hoping to get my old one back.

Looks great, Glenn. Glad to see you guys got everything up and working.

I had the same issues with my PW. No problem getting the email sent to me though. I couldn't log in under my screen name. I had a different user name for some reason.

Same here. At one time, I was Lund Explorer.

Tried to login and it wouldn't allow it. Asked for an email with my password and never got it. :angry:

Sure hope I still get to go to the Roadtrip! :unsure:

Glenn CONGRATS on the new site. And for staying on the leading edge of technology too. In this fast moving times the technology changes so fast and if we don't keep up with it we all lose. Only the smart ones know this and the others are left trying to figure out were everyone went. Only the ones who change will be rewarded. Awesome new site again congrats, BigBill

BTW; Its the computers too that get so old so fast too and outdated. My older computer was operating at a snails pace so i upgraded to the lastest and greatest figuring in a few short years it will be outdated too. Internet speed is the key to surfing in these times. I like moving at warp speed while on the puter. We all need to be on the laeding edge of technology.

This is AWESOME. As a web designer, I've long dreamed of seeing BR improved in both the aesthetic and functional sides. Much cleaner and I like the added features I've seen so far, especially the social media integration.
