Hi everyone,

Just a quick message to say that the forum has been upgraded to a new version, most of the functionality remains the same.

If you do notice something that doesnt quite work as you expect or you think there is something missing please let me know by replying to this message.

This has taken a lot of my time to get this to work but in turn this should make the forum feel a little more up to date and also quicker.

I had to create all the forum Styles from scratch for those that prefer a darker option there is one available, on the bottom left of the forum you will see the current style name "UKAPS Light Style" just click on that and select "UKAPS Dark Style" from the pop up list.

As always there was a need to spend some extra funds on addons etc... with this upgrade so donations are always appreciated.

Couple things:

- Bookmark have been lost with the upgrade, was no way to import them across
- Plantbase needs a lot more work to bring back, so I will see what I can do with that over the next week.

One thing to note, the mark read forum has changed slightly:

1. The option at the top menu marks all forums on UKAPS as read, so becareful with this button!
2. when you are inside a forum you will get this new option, this will only mark the forum you are in as read!


Enjoy UKAPS again :)

Cheers
Paulo

A very big thank you Paulo for giving up both your time and expertise. The new site looks and feels awesome :cool:
I know it's taken many many days, not just to do the actual upgrade but also to do the necessary testing beforehand.
And that it hasn't always been easy, there have been more than a few problems for you to solve along the way too, but you got there in the end :)
