I have redesigned the forum so that it will look good on any device and not just computers.

I am currently busy installing the new software so things will soon look very different on the forum soon. It will however still function in the same way.

During the installation process however you may find that weird things happen, so please be patient if something is not working.

It is a major upgrade so can take a while. I will post here again when the upgrade is complete.

the forum should be back up and running again. To get you acquainted with the new layout, I have created a short tutorial HERE

The upgrade required a lot of custom programming so the chance that there are a few issues to sort here and there is high. If you find a problem, please let me know about it here so I can sort it out. :thankyou:

So far, so good, Nolan.  It has a nice clean look to it.

As with anything new, it takes a bit of an adjustment. 

Thanks for continually trying to make things better for us.

Val, I too got a shock when I opened up this morning, thought I had inadvertently logged onto some other site.  Anyway, Nolan, it is stunning, so bright and happy.  Thanks for all you do for us.

Looking great so far on my ipad2, the old format worked well but this looks to be much better.

It's a cool new look - can't wait to get more familiar with it! Of course I thought there was something wrong with my phone when I first logged on this morning!!
Cheers,
Sharon

You will notice there is now a back to top button which you can use.

There is also now a quick way to add a photo to your post which eliminates the need to copy and paste smg codes, for a tutorial on how to do that go HERE

 :thankyou: Nolan for all the work you have done to make this site look so vibrant.
I like the new thing that if you click on a new uploaded image and it automatically takes you to that person's other photos so youcan see their progress.  :clap:
