Forum has been migrated to the new host

Hi everyone

The forum has been migrated to the new host, so far so good, the only thing is we have had to disable is Tapatalk for now as it needs a new API key.

We have also implemented a new joining process, anyone new joining the forum now has to use the Google reCapatha which is easy to use and hopefully will stop all the Spambots joining (up to 100 a day) this has allowed me to put the process back to joining via email authentication in stead of admin authentication, I will be keeping an eye on this for a while to make sure it runs smooth.

Cheers Stephen

Yep
Ok they are showing now

Going forward you cant use attachments for images as the forum will run out of web space, you can use the small add image button that shows in the picture, this will upload your photos to another site and display them in your post.

Forum seems to be working ok, we have some new image hosting items we are trying to implement to make the uploading of images easier for users, we have it working but currently it just shows a thumbnail, once the kinks have been worked out it should make posting pictures very easy.

Still to do, Tapatalk plugin

This is now fixed. Images added to a post will now show a large preview, and clicking on the image will show it full size and allow downloading.
