We've just purchased a license for Invision Power Board (this forum), and the software will be updated to the latest version this evening.

This may cause some temporary problems in accessing the forum, so please bear with us smile.gif

Also, the forum might not look right immediately after the upgrade, but I'll get that fixed as soon as possible.

I'm not sure really dry.gif

I think it's mainly security and bug fixes (so the moderator warning system should hopefully work smile.gif )

Yes, the upgrade seems to have been done smile.gif

There are a few things that will need tweaked though (I should get that done this evening).

Is there not supposed to be a 'Find member's topics' link in their profile? It seems to be missing.

Well, we were just sort of used to IPB biggrin.gif

We'd also spent a lot of time integrating it with the site, so it just made sense to stick with it. Plus I've been having a look at the next update for IPB (currently being tested on their community forum), and there are some nice new features smile.gif

Yeah, the database table which contains all the posts had become corrupted. I managed to repair it though smile.gif

Yeah, I was quite worried for a bit. I don't know how it happened, but I don't think it was too serious because it repaired itself quite easily.

Do you keep regular backups of the database? tongue.gif

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Daily backups to a secondry drive in the server and weekly backups to an off-site location. :-).
