Forum softwareupdate

Postby tim » Sun Mar 15, 2015 11:33 pm

Hi all,
I intend to upgrade the forum software to the latest version sometime either today (Sunday) or tomorrow evening (CET). (Can't promise exactly when)
So, during that time, I expect the forum will be offline for an hour or so.

Unfortunately it is not compatible with the older versions, and so it might be possible that some features we now have won't work afterwards. I couldn't be bothered to look through everything to find our what may or may nor work.
so if you notice something that is missing/broken please let me know and I'll do my best to get it sorted asap.

I'm not sure as to the status wrt TapaTalk, but it seems to be supported. I'll upgrade that asap after dong the forum.

So now you'll have a couple of free hours to check your routes for AR2015 :-)

cheers
Tim.

:cry: , not quite painless.

After you post, you'll probably get a message saying "No back end found" ....
just ignore it.

No layout options for the moment. ... working on it.

Yes, the layout is a bit odd. I don't like it much. I'll see if there's something I can do.

[quote="tim"] ... working on it.

Take your time. We sure do appreciate your effort!

Btw, right now the page does not fit in the screen. And I managed to delete my avatar pic but not upload a new one. No worries.
