I blame the Anarchs, this looks like their work - BRENDAN. Poor Chimpster having to purge virus with all of his clicks today. If only we'd clubbed together and put him at least the trial version of the Cyberdex virus suite,

My ftp upload cut out half way through due to my Internet dying on me. Still trying to figure out of that has caused any issues. Should be back to normal tonight hopefully!

Better hope Chimpster's lines are still clean...

I genuinely did a double-take when I refreshed this...

Ah! They're on to us! CHEESE IT LADS!

Unless you'll buy that, in some ways, this is just a reboot of an earlier version and thus we should probably blame Shapers and their Record Reconstructing?

The "active topics" button on the index page seems to have gone walkies. I don't know if this was intentional.

It's now found on the top left button (3 horizontal bars).

Let me know if it's causing problems!

The onesie was a legitimate tactical decision.

Seems to be in working order now.

We have officially upgraded to phpBB3 3.1.5 without breaking everything, huzzah.

Most changes are backend (mod support is now ten times easier) so you won't notice too much difference. Obviously some of the UI elements are a little different but hopefully it should all be fairly easy to navigate.

The main improvement as a user will be with mobile / tablet browsing which has been significantly revamped. Hopefully the forum will actually be use able on a mobile now without having to zoom in or out all over the show.

If anyone has any issues or thinks something is missing, please let me know.

P.S Tapatalk is currently not setup, should be up soon for those who use it (probably just talking to Gaz here :p)

Browsing on my mobile is much improved! Banner at the top of the page is pretty swish too

As much as I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, it's really not getting on with the Tapatalk mobile app at the minute. Sad face.
