Forum migration

Post by Administrator » Wed Dec 01, 2010 11:01 am

Over the next few weeks, I will be changing the software for the forum.

Currently we use XMB, and have decided to move to phpBB because of the extra functionality it will give us. All posts and attachments will be migrated to the new board.

Feel free to make any comments about the change.

Tony.

The forum will be closing tomorrow for the migration to the new software. It should be back up and fully running on Monday.

The forum has now been migrated from the old XMB software to phpBB.

All posts, users and attachments should be intact. Please let me know if you are missing anything.

If you notice an attachment that has been disabled, please let me know and I will enable it. The new software has a limited set of file types that it will display, I need to enable each one manually.

In the coming weeks I'll be adding more functionality to the forum. RSS feeds and daily digests, as well as the ability to tag posts with common words which will make searching much more efficient.

Any questions/comments/problems, please post here.

Tony.
