Changes to the website


The background engine to the website has now been updated but , at the moment, the format of the website will look a little different whilst we try to get the various components settled in.

The upgrade was a reasonably big one in that we needed to update both the background engine and also the version of PHP that underpins it. Some of the parts of the website are aging now and there have been some compatibility issues that I have had to (and continue to) work through.

The layout of the forum also looks different , bear with me on that. The upgrade from the old to the new means that the old template we used no longer worked so I am working to customise the current one.

You will also see some changes in the coming days as well, we needed to get these upgrades in because we were running on out of date software and these in themselves presented a security issue.
