New Forum to Go Live 1st October 2016

SFMuk Admin » Sep 29 '16

That's right!  We have a new forum all set up which is way more powerful than the current one and uses the very popular phpBB system which I am sure a lot of people will be familiar with as there are a considerable number of forums which use this.

 

Not 100% of the things are sorted yet but there is sufficient there to start moving across and locking down the current forum from then.

 

There is one major issue that couldn't be solved and that is usernames and passwords.  It's just not feasible to get these transferred to the new system, so please just re-register.  It will take you about 30 seconds and the account will be immediately live.  

 

Any questions just shout!

What do you mean exactly?

You can't register or you can't post?

I made one change to one zone yesterday and it looks like it copied through the entire site.  I think I've corrected it now (basically newly registered users were excluded from everything).

 

Could you try it again and see if we're now good?

I've reset your password and sent you a message on this site.  I suspect that the error is that there is a . after your username which may have been missed when you were trying to log in.

Everything seems to be working out well with the new forum.  Not many people have re-registered yet butt hopefully the steady stream will continue.

 

So please do get over there and start posting:
