    Well that was an interesting couple of days!!! As ever with computers things did not go as planned!! However with the help of some others I have now at last got things working to an acceptable level.

    There are two outstanding problems which will be solved over the next few days -

    1. You will notice that everyone's Avatar has disappeared. I have been desperately trying everything, but no luck so far. I am confident I will fix this so please bear with me

    2. As far as I can tell, currently it is not possible to amend your forum profile. I have a call in to solve this one, and again am sure it will get sorted.

    Once the forum is running 100% correct, I will get to work on the TapaTalk part

    Hopefully there are no other issues (.I have done a fair bit of testing to check), and you may notice some more downtime over the next 3 to 4 days

    Well done Chris. I'll keep an eye out for the updates.

    It all looks very different.

    Very well done Chris! Had to admit that the missing forum was baffling me for a bit, but knew it was in good hands. I'm sure you'll have it sorted soon, look forward to seeing the forums on tapatalk!

    Hi Chris - my congrats and appreciation too.

    I have noticed that the date on each post seems to say D9 instead of 09, but that's a minor issue.

     Oh, and everyone's location has also disappeared!

    Thanks Helen. I am having a few problems mainly because the updated version uses all the Birdline account settings rather than a User Profile unique to the forums. This means that the templates have to all be updated, and the Birdline Account settings amended to fit. No easy task!! This means that anything which previously displayed from the Forum Profile will currently be blank i.e Avatar and Location. Its a right pain but can be fixed (I hope!!).

    I have sorted the time, although only to the USA format

    As soon as the suppliers provide me with some code, I will get to work on it

So he was confined to barracks for the weekend, result me helping him do four weeks work in two days. Finished 6pm Sunday, not particularly happy (although he is!!!)
