Hi All,

Just a bit of warning, the site is running a very old version of phpBB and Tapatalk, and its also on a hosting account separate from my personal one which I have been paying for for the last few years.

Therefore over the next week or 2 I will be migrating the hosting and upgrading the software. During this time you will experience intermittent downtime.

Cheers

Andrew

OK all seems to have gone relatively smoothly. Site is backup on the latest phpBB and tapatalk versions.

I've got a few small issues to work through like the look and feel is off with the new theme. Although its only happened once, I'm keeping and eye on Tapatalk which seemed to just deactivate itself. And lastly there are some issues with the admin portal due to some legacy addins.

Other than that, I'm looking to rejig the forums a bit, like removing the vendors section. Any suggestions welcome...just PM me.

Cheers

Andrew
