Welcome to the all-new home of Simple trACtors and the Simplicity and Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractor Club.
Use the Browse menu option to navigate and explore different areas of the site. Or use the Activity option to see the latest content, keep track of content you started or posted in, or even to create your own custom Activity stream to track things. Much of the old site's content (brochures, flyers, spec sheets, etc.) is now available underneath the Research menu option. This content can be searched by specifying All Content or the Posts option (for just that content) on an advanced search. There's still hundreds of pages more information to be incorporated, so keep an eye on that section.
While there have been disruptions and hiccups, this new software system provides several key benefits. Here's just a few:
- It will allow us to seamlessly integrate all the background information found on the old Simple trACtors site (such as brochures, technical specs, etc.) with the interactive features of the discussions forums, giving users the ability to reply, comment, rate, like, share,etc. Perhaps most importantly, it will integrate all of this information underneath one Search function, making it much easier for you to find the needed information. (For example, there's no longer a need to search separate Archives -- it is all in one place.)
- It was designed from the ground up to support today's mobile devices, tablets, etc. It is an evolving commercial product, which we license, meaning that new devices will be supported as they come on the market, and new features and capabilities are being constantly added.
- It has greatly improved photo support, allowing you to easily upload pictures and automatically resizes them for you -- making it a "drag and drop" kind of action, though you can also browse your computer (or phone) and upload them that way. There are no longer any constraints (picture size, file size, number of pictures,etc.) for our members.
Meanwhile the entire old site is still accessible on our .net (instead of .com) testing server - though the forums there are locked to prevent new posts. Feel free to use it -- though there will be broken links and some missing pictures, icons, etc. due to changing the name of the site.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this ongoing construction and remodeling project. Things will be constantly changing for a while yet, but we will try to keep the disruptions to the key navigation methods to a minimum. Please monitor the News and Announcements forum regularly for key updates and reports on this ongoing project. Report any problems you encounter or ask for help in the appropriate Using the Clubhouse forums. If you find an issue with a specific page, please leave a Comment on that page, if you have that option. That makes it easier to pinpoint where there's a problem or issue.
Most importantly, explore the new capabilities and "enjoy the ride!"
There are 9 great mowers in the world. Simplicity makes 8 of them.
