    Sorry for the delay in response to the thread, I've had a long runs of kids being ill, various family commitments, and a wedding in the last few months.

    Small updates:

    * The issue we had with the advertiser is now resolved finally, so that is a huuuuuuge relief. I can now concentrate on the updates
    * Tapatalk should be working now. Let me know if any issues.
    * I'm sticking with Basenotes Green for the colour scheme

    I'm going to commit to doing a weekly-ish update on the thread so people know what's going on. Communication isn't my forté, but I'm going to try and do better.

    All this is greatly appreciated, but my greatest concern is, how are your kids now?

    I'm the weirdo who uses mobile browser in desktop mode and pinches to expand/zoom so Tapatalk was never on the table for me, but glad to see the certificate renewed, cuz it was making my security plugins on my desktop browser go nuts XD

    Also, hope the kids are well, congrats to the newlyweds, happy holidays to you, and keep smellin' like a felon!

    Yeah, I do that on my iPhone, too.

    But, regarding security: while technically, the site loads in my desktop browser if I switch to https, it's pretty much unreadable and unnavigable if I do. Grant, is this something that can be addressed? It would be best if the site (including all internal links) defaulted to https.

    Okay, as promised more updates.

    The plan originally was to have the new forums and new directory pages launch at the same time. One of the main reasons I wanted to do this was because the directory would need a lot of code-fiddling to get it working with the new forums, and it seemed like it would be a better idea to just launch everything at the same time.

    However, I've not had the opportunity I'd have like to work on this, so we are going to PLAN B

    Plan B is -- do the forums first, do the directory later.

    The forums are in dire need of upgrading. The software that runs them is donkeys years old. So here's the plan:


    1. Update the current directory code to work with the new software. This would normally be fairly straight forward but there's a slight complication. The new forum software needs a newer version of PHP than we currently use. All of the ancient directory code works fine currently, but won't work on upgraded PHP software. This means me basically going through each line of code that won't be compatible and rewriting it. Time consuming, but quicker than re-coding the whole thing.
    2. Do a test import. Get all of the 20 years worth of forum posts in the new software, and allow access to any members who want to test it
    3. Do lots of testing
    4. Go live, and switch out the old forums for the new forums. This is likely to include a bit of downtime. It will likely be over a weekend, and I'll give you all plenty of notice.
    5. Bug hunting and feature requests. Once the new forums are up and running, there will likely be lots of bugs and things to fix. I'll deal with all that, then it will be on to stage two, which will be ALL NEW DIRECTORY and general site relaunch.


    Wish me luck - currently still on Stage 1, but this should be done by end of year, providing no weird emergencies come up.

    Sounds like a plan, but best of luck if it helps, and may the force be with you, etc.
