MAJOR UPGRADE
« on: 31 Dec , 2011, 01:23 »
We are upgrading the Forum software from 1.1.16 to 2.0.2 Gold.

This may cause some weirdness and down time, apologies, but we should be back soon and better.

OK, it went pretty well. We lost some board Icons, easy fix But the POsts, Rankings, and such seem all OK.

Standby for cleanup and please report any weirdness.

WOW!! What a shock  :o :o

Thought I checks the board before going to bed. For a few second thought Sh*t bl**dy wrong address  ;D ;D

Looks great so far, will have a good play with it in the morning.

Thanks, NZ.

We're changing because the support for the old version is gone. Everything is now ver 2.0.2+. It has a better "under the bonnet" sturdiness, but is...not quite as friendly or easily customisable!

We are working on restoring and making even better! But the main point was to make sure members can function better - solid security and easy posts.

Thanks Wild.  We still have a quite a few tweaks and some functionality to restore. Individual icon s for boards are temporarily disabled, hope they will be back soon.

We had 100 spammers join up in 12 hrs, but cleared them out.

Sorry to be dense, but I'm not quite understanding..I can see a contrast, with headlines a bright yet dark blue. Can you post or send a screenshot with arrows? We should be able to alter colors pretty easy.

Thanks Pepper. Simon has a suggestion (which I'm too dense to get yet), so if you or anyone have ideas/complaints, let us know.

The change was really about the software version/upgrade, but it allowed some other goodies (and disallowed others...for now!)

Hmm, very strange. this is what you SHOULD see. It's also flexible, so should adjust for screen size. What browser are you using?

I don't see it like this. I use Safari...


Tried on Firefox, and it's working properly.
