  • Forum down temporarily for maintenance

    **Update 2 - we're online but with some limited functionality while we do some trouble-shooting**

    Hi everyone,

    We're just doing a software update this morning so the forum will be down for a short time.

    See you again on the other side!

    I have noticed some errors appearing when looking at member information pages and one or two other areas - we're looking into this.

      Sorry about the current disruption - the problem after the software update requires some reduced functionality, including the portal front page, for a little while.

        Getting odd error reports when posting images but post goes through. I'll do a screen copy next time for info.

          Yes, sorry about this. The problem is some out of date code - it generates an error but the error is not fatal, it's just a warning. It looks worse than it is but we're still tracking it down.

          Sorry again for any inconvenience!

            The problem we have is that the forum version we are running is out of date. I have paid for a licence for the latest version but many of the customisations that we currently enjoy will be lost, some of them temporarily but some more permanently. However the new forum code is more secure and will work properly on tablets and phones without the need for accessories like Tapatalk.

            Patching up the old forum as we go along is problematical!
