Website Upgrade
« on: February 04, 2013, 10:27:23 pm »
Hi Guys

I am going to be upgrading the website this week, so if you see an upgrade in progress notice at the top of the website, please don't post on the forum or use any features on the site. If you do the info you have posted, etc., may be lost.

You can however still browse the website while I am upgrading, just don't panic if something isn't working as it is a major site overhaul, so it will take a while to get everything running properly.

I will post here when the upgrade is complete.  O0

the site upgrade is complete. I hope you like the new look.
Over the next few days I will still be working on the site doing odds and ends. If however you do find something that isn't working correctly, please let me know here so I can look into it.  :flowers:

Yusuf, there has been no change to the forum software at all except for the header and footer with the new look

I am sure you may have this on your ipad too :) are there supposed to be icons on the contents page? I get lots of little blue question marks in boxes on the right of the topic names. Just checking that the icons are visible to all :)

Have a great day xxx
