Essential site maintenance

Post by fermain » Thu Jul 04, 2019 10:40 pm

Sorry folks for the error-strewn messages lately. The webhosts decided to upgrade the previous version of php database software on all their servers to the latest version... which messed up the site's core software as it wasn't compatible with the original forum's code.

The upshot is, the whole forum will need upgrading soon to make sure that the latest php version can be used.

This will be a BIG job, as the new version of the forum software is NOT compatible with the older version of the board, and it will mean a completly new (basic) look and feel although with a lot of added functionality.

So... if I upgrade the board, the style WILL change. And if I go ahead and make the upgrades, please bear with me as I have not got as much time to make the changes, and it will take time.

well, so far it's been a bit of a marathon... Not 100% confident it all works. if everyone wants to have a play and let me know if anything is broken I would appreciate it.

Good job Fermain oul' han'. Remind me to buy you a non-Diageo drink the next time you make it over to Ravers.

I swore I just heard the ghost of Baggy there. Spooky.
I have a cunning plan...why not just leave things as they are but tell the Brexiteers that we have left the EU? After all they believe every lie that they were told by Boris and Nigel.

6 emails cos CT has probably 6 different handles over the years?
Great job Fermain. Well done and much appreciated.
What to do about this Baggy guy? A wooden stake through his heart?
