Updates to the Forum

Post by Adminlizzieborden » Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:49 am

I have been putting off updating the backend of the forum for a while because it will kill some of the features and themes you are accustomed to and prefer. But that day has finally come.

Some of you are receiving notices that the site is not secure. That is because the version of software this site runs on is no longer supported and has been updated significantly.

So some of the themes we hold dear may not make the transition and I beg you to bear with me on this and know I will do my best to restore some if not all of them. I will also be looking at some new theme options from which you may choose.

I will be making the update early in the AM when the traffic is low. January 15, 2018.

Here is a screenshot of what themes you have chosen. Subway, unfortunately, may be one of the ones that will not update. If you are one of those 183 folks, sorry.
I use Metro myself and love the look and that has an updated version. Once the conversion is complete you might give it a try.

Thank you, Stefani,for giving us a heads-up on what will happen when you update the back-end of the forum.

It is my understanding that Microsoft is requiring that all web sites be secure.

It's very unfortunate that favorite features and themes will probably be lost, but I know that you will do everything in your power to restore all that you can.
