As many of you know I am working on some changes to this site.
I have decide to upload the changes progressively as they are finished and tested.
You may notice slight differences over the next couple of weeks or so.
If anything looks completely wrong please let me know so I can make adjustments as required.

Some of the things currently on the drawing board:
- Change the markup around Quotes and Code from tables to divs.
- Add a blog to the home page which will tye in with the forum database.
- Change the structure of the forum index page.
- Add browser stats.
- Change the style of the site.

One day you may turn up and not know where you are Cool

Changes

While making the changes I discovered that there is a new release of phpBB.
That means, lots more files to change, more testing and more fingers crossed that it works. Smile
There will be changes to the database and many files so once the move starts there will be a time between now and when it's all over that things could get a little messy.

Good luck! I've never had the time to delve into the phpBB styles. Big job.

Upgrading the board from .0.6 should be pretty simple though... although I think I started with .0.8. Depends on how widely modded this is I suppose!

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

Changes

I recently updated a heavily modified version of phpBB and it all went without any hicups. The table changes are fairly minor.
