Default New TOTV site coming soon!

New technological advancements are introduced to us so often that it can be difficult to keep track. This includes the quickly changing technology online. As things change across the internet, everyone on the Talk of The Villages team is eager to maintain regular updates. It's also a necessity to update software as advances progress otherwise websites/apps will not function on new devices. We've gone from an iphone 4 to 11 and what once worked on an iphone 4 may not on an 11. The iphone launched in 2007 and TOTV was established in 2006!

As one of the largest and most established websites in The Villages, we are excited to announce an improved TOTV site with a new look and feel that will provide users with a modern feel and better functionality! This new site will be launched within a few days, and in anticipation for the new site, we have included a sneak peak of what to expect. If you have not visited our new home page for the website you can see it in action here and it will also give you a sneak peak at what to expect in terms of the look, feel, and navigation!

Click on the link below to get a sneak peek on what to expect in terms of the look, feel, and navigation. This is our "new" home page for the website:
The Villages, Florida | 55+ Active Adult Retirement Community Website

In addition, we are including some screenshots to give users a better idea of what to expect.

We understand some users may prefer the old format, which is why we will include the option for users to keep it. However, as we move to the new site, the old format will not be supported. This means that information will be susceptible to be lost.

Thanks to everyone on TOTV for all of the support over the years! None of this would be possible without you!

Looks like a new cover page which resorts back to the same old format for threads.

The link posted leads to a test version. As a result, if you click on the page to explore threads it will automatically go back to the old format.

Just wait for the site to go live

Don't you just love it when people don't Read before they spit out negativity....

It Reads...
"This new site will be launched within a few days, and in anticipation for the new site, we have included a sneak peak of what to expect."

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Well, one thing I hope they change is the font size when I position the cursor over the subject line of a post. It's so small I almost need a magnifying glass to read it.

You can adjust the font size.
