OK as you will now see you are on a brand new version of phpBB, the latest and greatest 3.2 version.

There is a problem with emails at the moment but I am in the middle of sorting that out, and also the Tapatalk application has been upgraded to the new 3.2 version but I have not tested it yet, so any Tapatalk Users feel free and let me know any problems.

PLEASE POST ALL PROBLEMS on this Topic so I know where to look. :hyst

There are 6 Styles available as per the post over the weekend prosilver is the default which some of you may find a bit bright!!

Please note that the requirement to set Daylight saving On/Off when the clock changes has gone away with this version. If yours is wrong use the User Control Panel in the dropdown from your login name, to select Board Preferences and both your Timezone dropdowns should say UTC+1.

That is the default prosilver Style. If you want a wider one try aero-black, lots of space.

For those of you having trouble finding the menu items that used to exist along the top of the Forum I wrote this Topic that explains where they all are.
viewtopic.php?f=31&t=90560

This makes the Forum easily updateable which Ant needs !!

Good work, and .....

ABOUT TIME! :D

Old old old web based stuff like old phpbb becomes highly vulnerable as you are no doubt aware of.

Hopelly all the spamming and trollpoop can now be averted.

Good luck going forward.
