Forum Software Update

Post by Mike » Tue Jan 10, 2017 8:04 pm

Hello everyone,

We are (in the next week or so) going to update the forum software to the latest version. This particular update has some slightly more significant 'under the hood' changes which may cause some minor issues.

I have found that if you experience any graphical errors the best method to resolve is to clear the browser cache. I am giving you all a bit of notice so that you aren't surprised if things suddenly look different.

One of the possible changes is to temporarily 'force revert' the forum to use the 'default' settings. So if the system suddenly looks a bit different please don't be concerned.

I will be in touch when the upgrade is complete. When I start the upgrade the forum is likely to be offline for 1-2hours. The advantages of the upgrade is a definite speed bump so things should load faster and be also be more secure.

All the best,

Mike

PS any questions please let me know below.

Good morning everyone. I have taken the opportunity to upgrade the forum software to the latest version. We are now also running a different version of the 'source language' of php which has also been upgraded to version 7.1. If you spot any problems with the new software please let us know here.

Have a nice weekend.

Mike

A small glitch is that the pull down menu options are open, and closing one open another.
Best regards

John

Thanks for the feedback - try removing the cookies and cache information from adapsuk.org and this will sort the problem.

There have been some structural changes to the board software and this can cause some confusion if the cache information is partially out of date.
