Exciting news from the forum help team!

The forum received a major upgrade this weekend, and is now using a different brand of forum software. The new product has a modern look and is much friendlier to mobile guests. We realize that many people now visit forums and social media with their phones or tablets, and now it will be much easier to do so with Framers Corner. All previous posts, sub forums, avatars, and private messages have been converted.

Note: Our web address has changed slightly, so you may have to update old bookmarks.
Please set your bookmarks to https://www.ppfacorner.com

Some of the improvements available immediately:

-PUSH NOTIFICATIONS* OPTION (to instantly let you know on phone or tablet, when something you are watching has new activity) If you have this turned on, you'll will see a special notification on your device, with a direct link to the new content.

-Optional PWA SMARTPHONE / TABLET APP* (progressive web app) for phones, tablets, and computers with Chrome Browser.

-Better layout for use on mobile devices with an adaptive theme that will look great on any device. (with or without the app)

-New subforum types, such as article forums, and forums where you can rate/upvote for the best answer/solution given

-You are now able to log in by user name or by email address.

-You are able to change your username, if desired. https://www.ppfacorner.com/index.php?account/

*Push Notification and the Progressive Web App are available to users of Windows 10, Mac OS, and Android Phones/Tablets. Apple's IOS does not yet support this standard, so it will not work on IOS devices. Chrome Browser is recommended for best results.

If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us at any time. The CONTACT US link is at the bottom of every page.

Thank you
