Thumbs up YouTube video and Equipment Reviews

You can now put YouTube videos in your posts.

Create a Review. Below your name on the left menu - If you have logged in - you'll see "Create Content" - click and you'll see the various content types you can create. We have started with Equipment Reviews, and more to come soonish. The cool part is that when you create a review, it automatically creates a new thread in the HUBB for comments.

Talking Search!

The Search on the site for all HUBB pages and Drupal (new style) pages has been upgraded. You can now use various operators to improve the search and cut way down on the number of extra pages returned. See the Search Tips link just below the Search box above right.

New 4wd For Sale / Wanted Forum opened.

The 4wd forums are growing fast, so it's time to start expanding the forums, this is the first expansion that's obvious to me. Any other specifically 4wd forums needed, let me know!

Search engine update

Finally - after a lot of effort and time by (mostly) Jeff and me and others, the new search engine for ALL of HU is running. It's in use now, and everywhere you go you should be using. The old FDSE is still lurking in a few spots, but will be gone tomorrow everywhere.

I think you'll like it - works much better than the old vBulletin search, as well as the old FDSE we used for non HUBB pages, and does it all in one place, so all results are integrated now.

Advanced search page is at http://www.HorizonsUnlimited.com/search

Enjoy!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
