The previous forum is still intact.
Our goal is to install a new forum altogether.
The first step is to ensure that there is a common log in. The time it takes to log in is another issue.
The forum MUST tie into our membership database. So the same password used to renew and access the main site needs to be the same for the forum.
Import old and possibly current posts into the new forum.
I've asked not to disable private messaging, signatures among other functions.
Some typical forum functions may need to be disabled unless it's directly tied into our membership base. For instance email address. Those types of changes may need to be done in your profile on the main website.
I am hesitant to set a date. It is in process.
I do ask everyone to be patient. Please use the appropriate sections to post your comments.
The Tech Talk section really should be used for general questions, not model specific.
