Software upgrade
« on: August 10, 2018, 10:39:28 AM »
Hi all,

The site may be off line for a period of time over the weekend as I upgrade some of the software we use.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Hi all,

Most of the major changes have been made, I have upgraded the version of php the site runs on, and the version of the forum we are using also.

If anyone notices anything unusual, please post below, pm me or mail [email protected] for me to investigate.

Hi all,

Two things, an issue where users were unable to log in was reported. I am fairly sure it is now fixed, if anyone else has the problem, can you clear your cache first, and if that doesn't work, please drop me a mail [email protected]

Secondly, you may notice the URLs have changed, if you have any link bookmarked, it should redirect. Cleaner URLs help with SEO, and allow people find content from search engines (in theory at least!).
