New look coming soon

Post by swa » Wed Jun 14, 2017 12:27 am

I'm working on a big update of the forum software and part of that requires an update to the look and feel.
So we decided to go for a far more modern look than what we currently have.

Don't be surprised if it looks all different in a few weeks from now (if all goes as planned).

I'll keep you posted with more details as they become available.

If all goes well we're days away from the switch-over to the new site.
[Need to tidy up a few things, hard to predict when it's all ready]

During the transition the site forum will be unavailable for a few hours.
Don't be surprised.

After the transition, you might be logged out (It should not, but in the past bigger upgrades did cause this for some members), even if you have the "automatic login" enabled.

It's therefore important for those that don't login manually to have their credentials ready.
You can find your username at the top right after the word "Logout"

Make sure you have an up to date email address registered:
You can see the one curently used (and change it if needed) at:
- User Control Panel (top left side)
- Profile tab
- Edit Account settings

To change it, don't forget you have to type it twice!


If you forgot your password: as long as you know your username and have access to the recorded email address, the system will let you change your password.

Thanks! Glad you like it.

To be honest: this is a big upgrade on the lower end of things. I'm still processing through it all -so my reaction speed is rather slow at the moment-. Yeah, I can hear the mumbling that I'm never that fast to start with.

The good thing is that so far it seems the public side is working (more or less). There's still some work to be done mostly on backend stuff, but that's not all that urgent.

If any of you see problems, feel free to notify me - just don't expect an answer within the hour 😉.
