FORUM DOWNTIME

Postby boxerman » Mon Jan 09, 2017 11:40 pm

Sometime in the next couple of weeks there will be some forum downtime while I install a major update. I've spent much of the last couple of days playing silly buggers with a test copy of the site and it's a real PITA to update. Like the update from phpBB2 to BB3 the file system used is very different so one mistake and it's start again time. The upside is that you won't see any changes in how it works. We will lose one or two of the currently used add-ons but I now know which work and which don't - we will also revert to a basic colour scheme for now tho I will sort that in time. PHPBB is one of the better forum softwares around but much of the problem is that it's run by kids who have no conception that users have no damned idea what they're talking about or that what is obvious to them means nothing to anyone else - a new toy comes along and they have to incorporate it. I had to wing it on so many conflicts 'cos the instructions say 'here's a conflict, you'll need to sort it manually' Yeah, right....

Anyway, what this means is that the forum could be down for a couple of hours or a couple of days if the shit hits the fan........

I notice that the donations have reached the halfway mark of the cost of running the forum. But the all the work you do for free is appreciated!
