Hangar45’s Grand opening will be on January 1st 2018!
Hello All! This is an official announcement that our “New and Improved” Hangar45 website is well on the way to being fully operational again. Over the past few months we have been researching options and finding solutions to make the best website possible while staying in budget. These past few months you will have noticed that the hangar has been online but this time frame should be consider a “soft online period.” If you are reading this it is because you were already aware of Hangar45 and knew to look for it.
We are still in the process of uploading all of the content from the old forums and the resource pages. We expect that 95% of that information will be available by January 1st. On that date, we will go fully operational and let the rest of the world know we are here. In the meantime, if you are one of our previous members sitting on the sidelines waiting for your build thread to be uploaded, please email me and ask to be moved to priority. Once your build thread is uploaded, feel free to start adding updates and photos! (Do not start a new build thread if you already started one.)
Speaking of photos, we will no longer need a third party photo hosting website! Photo linking will still be available but not necessary. Just make sure you back up all your photos on one of your own computers or devices so what happened with Photobucket never happens again! Repopulating the thousands of photos back into our website is going to take a while and will be the last step in this long process. If you have a specific request to see photos especially in the tutorial section, please ask. It will be made a priority!
Here are a few highlighted features that we will have in this website:
- Updated security features using WordPress plugins
- The ability to update the website without hassle
- Over the horizon website solutions for longevity
- Uploading photos into the forum Photo Library
- No more third party photo hosting (Goodbye Photobucket!)
- The ability to share .exe file in the forums (Admin only)
- The ability to upload Zip Files and share .dxf, .cdr and G-code
