SMF upgrades coming soon
« on: June 29, 2020, 05:14:55 AM »

I've been running tests on my own server and it looks like upgrading to SMF 2.0.17 might be a good and relatively easy thing to do.

Tests show that all of the mods we have installed will install under 2.0.17 as well, the hard part is the customized stuff like abuseipdb.com integration, contact form mod and a few other bits n bobs.

Currently documenting a step by step procedure to follow that will allow me to get this done relatively quickly, or be able to give reliable instructions for someone else to follow, the more prep work I do the quicker the process will be.

So at some time in the near future (sorry no exact date) the forum will be in maintenance mode while I apply the changes, this should only take a couple of hours at most and I'll try to do it when there are no or very few users online.

Just a heads-up folks, thanks in advance for your patience. Hopefully most of you won't even notice  :educated:

Thanks in advance, Dick! I'm so happy we got your expertise and willingness to keep this site up and running.

If you have anything simple and tedious to delegate, drop me a line. I am on a week's vacation start wednesday, but after that have time to help.
I also hope to have the emoticons ready really soon, I aim to get the first bunch ready for you by tomorrow ;)
