I have made some major upgrades and changes to the forum today - thanks for being patient everybody but I'm sure you are going to like O0

I am pretty moeg now so will explain all the new features tomorrow  ;D

but the main one is that you can now connect to the forum with your Facebook login instead of a separate login -
either hit the Facebook login button or if you are already logged in hit the "Intergrate with Facebook" (yeah I know the spelling wrong - a frenchman designed the link software - i will fix his error tomorrow  :-\ ) link (under the banner advert, to the right hand side

You will then be able to access your facebook directly from SA Going To NZ as well as like and share posts on your facebook wall, etc.

When posting there is also a new facebook video button which will allow you to add a facebook video to your post.

Oh yeah, and I have managed to get Bookmarks to work on the new forum software too :clap: best news is if you had previously bookmarked stuff, you haven't lost your bookmarks  :yippee:

more about the rest of the changes tomorrow O0

Seems like there's some performance improvement too? Nice. Or it's maybe cause I'm on here at a ridiculous hour?
