OFL created the topic: Upgrading the Website

Okay guys, I'm going to be upgrading the website too much more modern version of Joomla!, I want to do this and the next day or two so there may be a little bit of disruption. I've thought long and hard about how to do it and decided that rather than take the website down for too long, I will get the website up and running with all articles and forum, however it may be a little bit rough around the edges for a few days, but it will be fully functional. I was sure that you would rather I do that and take a tough line for too long.

I've also been looking at other aspects of the website. There are a few things that just do not get used to, or if they do get used, it is hardly ever, therefore these items such as the chat room, the video sharing component, and possibly a few other things will no longer be part of the new upgraded website.

Anyway, hopefully the upgrade will clear out a lot of rubbish that has built up in the background and that maybe causing problems.

So if anything looks a little bit weird you'll know what's going on. But I will do my best to keep the website running, and endeavour to keep it from being off-line for too long. But at some stage it will be down for an hour or two, probably longer. What I will do is give you updates on our Facebook page. Not the Facebook page that a lot of other people use, the Facebook page that you can find at the bottom of the forum. What I suggest you do is click like maybe bookmark it, this way I can let you know what's going on. Thank you

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Good stuff. Let us know if you need any help. I've used the software before. It can be a bugger

Hey guys, I would like all existing members who see this message to help me experiment. Would you please go to the link below and sign in as you would do on this website. I have been migrating the software and testing it. I want to make sure that when the migration is done, everyone is able to access the forum properly. Would those of you who have been pestering, sorry asking me :-) please have a look at the "attempt to go out" thread and tell me if the problem still persists.

In theory, you should be able to sign into the site below using your existing username and password, if you can't then something has differently, mess. By the way, you will notice that your avatars are missing, this is because I haven't uploaded some files yet.
