Please add any problems that you experience here, OR if you manage some things reported here as a problem.

I have found a number of things especially Firefox having timing out issues with the site,
Posting replies seems OK
Posting replies with quotes - not OK

PM'ing fails (for me), even replying to them too ....
New Topics can fail but ..
...can also work ! :) (The one that worked did not include quoting or weblinks (no idea if that is relevant (yet) )...

We are working on resolving these issues quickly. Please bare with us while this is underway.

Do report any & all changes that you experience (good and bad).

The only problems I can see relate to creating, replying to and quoting private messages.

When we had the last upgrade,which changed the way posts were viewed, I managed to change the way the board is presented to me to the previous settings. Anyone help me to get these settings back. Can't get on with the new presentation'
Edit ( from a few minutes later) --for some strange reason ,everything has returned to normal. So if anyone's done anything, then Many thanks. If not, I'll wait and see if all is now well .

Is it any better now?

Having some issues with PM's at the moment - however you can change the style in "User Control Panel" and "Board Preferences" then select the style you want.

OK the update now appears to be mostly working fine but please DO mention to Admin immediately or me directly, if you see anything wrong or malfunctioning!

I am sure over the next few days we can test out a lot !

As said, few seconds after I'd posted, and a couple of minutes before board went off, it came back . Knew the controls were in "User Control Panel" and "Board Preferences" ,but couldn't find them . Some gremlin in works ,possibly .

Thank you everyone for ALL the inputs and advice, support and assistance provided with this major upgrade.
It has been a bit of fun and games but now seems settled.

I thank every one for all of their help. I could not possibly have done it without you ! :drink2: :drink: :lol:
Excellent & Thank You.
