Website upgrade

I've been informed by our website hosting provider that they're going to upgrade our server. This could mean a slightly faster service for us users but (I suspect) means I need to update the website software. 

I expect I'll need to take the website down for an evening or weekend while I update it, and it won't look identical afterwards but hopefully the impact will be minimal. 

I'll post updates here of when I plan to do it and what (if anything) you need to do.

Craig,

Might I ask, will the upgrade include an option for email notification of responses to forum questions?

Hi Cyfrm, 

This feature is already available.

On each thread you'll find a 'Subscribe' link. You can also subscribe to new posts if you wish. 

Take a look at the Subscribe tab on your account. 

If you don't receive any then check your email address is correct and have a look in your email spam folder. 

Let me know of any issues.

Thanks for that Craig, additionally, thanks you for responding and explaining the matters that I have raised.

I will respond more fully in the approptiate threads.

The upgrade is complete, and nothing broke :-) 

Let me know if you find anything wrong.

Famous last words!
The day after the upgrades numerous problems appeared.

Most of these are now resolved but there are some features still not working or disabled.
The most inconvenient is that search is not working.

I've removed the Classifieds facility which nobody used.
The Gallery is also little used until recently, it's not working presently but I'll look into that rather than removing it.

I'll let you know when these things are resolved, in the meantime please let me know about any problems you have. If you don't let me know then I can't fix them.

I'm pleased to say that search is now working again.

Also you might notice that I've updated the text editor, which will allow you to upload images once again.

Enjoy!

Craig
