Discussion Board Upgrade

Post by phjim » March 6, 2015 5:17 am

I have finally been able to upgrade the discussion board to the latest version (it had been 5 years since the last upgrade). I had to upgrade because of some issues with performance on the server. The layout is different from what you may be use to. Any posts and private messages that were made yesterday after 12 PM ET did not get migrated during the upgrade.

The new version includes a mobile template so you can use the discussion board on your mobile devices and tablets.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Jim

Now what are the odds that two different people were gonna say "snazzy"? :wink:

The forum looks great! I knew the upgrade from 3.0.x to 3.1.x was gonna be tricky. Glad you pulled it off.
