Forum looks weird? Another upgrade!

Postby pennymachines » Thu Oct 29, 2015 8:45 pm

Around one o'clock today (Thursday 29 Oct.) I finished upgrading the Forum, which is why it looks so weird and unfamiliar at the moment.

This was not the usual upgrade, but a move to a new version of the forum software, released last year. Because much of the code has been re-written, the many painstaking modifications I made to the 'off the shelf' design have had to be abandoned. Also, the Gallery had to be retired. I have backed up and saved all of its contents so that I can reinstate it when I find suitable software.

This drastic step brings several advantages: firstly, improvements in stability, efficiency, flexibility and responsiveness to mobile devices; and secondly, a less time-consuming maintenance and upgrade routine.

Over the next few days I hope to start reshaping the look of the Forum to something more comfortable and familiar.
