New version of the forum coming soon!
« on: February 10, 2011, 06:42:42 PM »
SMF has a new version for us to trial.  We are very hopeful that the new version will greatly reduce problems we are experiencing at the forum.  Lynch will let all of us know more about the transition and trial, but for now, know that we are working toward a solution.

The return of Chat is nigh!

But seriously, can't wait to see what the new version is like.

Will the new version have more drink holders? I need somewhere to put my Big Gulp.

I know the leather upholstery has contrasting piping.  It was an option to get the additional drink holders.  Not sure if we went with that.

I'm a novice, and I cannot help asking...

What's been the problems in this existing forum, besides the chat function?

A while ago there was a huge problem with page requests getting the 404 error (page not found). Also less frequently you would get a 500 error. Generally the site seemed to be teetering, but through several changes the admins made the site has become lots more stable.

I have made a mirror of the forum and upgraded to the latest version 2.0 RC5 of SMF.  It's looking good and as soon as we are sure it's working 100% I will upgrade the forum proper.

BTW - search works well on this new install.  Yay!
