Forum Update - Wednesday, July 2nd

Hi Everyone,
 
It has been many years since the code for the Roadfood forums have been updated, and I am going to attempt an upgrade to the most recent generation of the software package this Wednesday.  It should provide better browser support, mobile support, spam reduction etc.
 
As with any change, I am sure there will be people who will think the site will have been ruined, broken, two-steps back, etc. by the updates.  They may be right, but we have already gone through three generations of forum software over the past 14 years, and while it might not be perfect, I am sure we will eventually work through the kinks.
 
Thanks in advance for your patience.  See you on the other side.
 
Stephen

Have had the need to do this myself...it is a necessary part of running a business, which some folks forget is at the core.  Always appreciate your efforts and best of luck...we could all use more eating time and less posting time for a few hours anyway!

Key words: Spam Reduction.

Bravo, this can't happen soon enough.

Spam reduction sounds delicious.  I bet it'd be the perfect sauce for lutefisk.

HEY STEPHEN
 
What do you have against Spam.  It is a tasty treat now and then.
 
Thanks for all your efforts

I'm dreading my visit to RF on Wednesday morning. It took me 3 months to get used to the last update.

Sure looks different but other than that, I cannot tell any difference.  Anyone else notice any difference???

Hey Paul - only the admins can see the site right now, which is probably why you aren't seeing any replies.  I should have everything up in a couple of hours.

This new format doesn't seem as drastically different as the last update was.
