Forum upgrade upcoming!

Postby William » Wed Apr 23, 2008 12:10 pm

Within the next few weeks, I will be upgrading this forum to phpbb v 3.0. There are a few reasons for doing this.

From a technical/security standpoint, it makes sense. It will allow me to do more with the forum from a customization standpoint, and allow me to do more behind the scenes to keep our little forum happy and secure. I don't need to go into a lot of detail here, it should be pretty self explanatory.

Before I proceed however, I need to make sure that all the user information here, and our database, is secure. I've made backups before, but I want to make absolutely certain all our info is safe before doing the upgrade.

Finally, the forum will get a much needed facelift. I would like to see the forum simply look better. Steve @ www.dorothystratten.com has been gracious enough to allow me to use a few images from his site (and of course he will be fully credited when I do upgrade). I'd like to see what I can do :D

We have a small family here. Maybe with an upgrade a few more people that read but don't post (and I know they're out there based on the web traffic we get) will join us.

I'll keep you all up to date with the changes we make here.

Be well!
