I am not sure - but at least a day. Everything has to be imported to a new version of this software first, then after that I have to import whatever is importable into the new software (which is not related to this software at all)...
I haven't been keeping up with this thread so you may have already answered this

If you have to import everything into a new version of this software anyway why not just use that?

Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

No offence to Azz, and we are merely guests on his creation.

Am just a bit concerned that the simplicity of navigating this wayward and cluttered place (including it's no doubt weaknesses) which largely adds to its charm, might be lost albeit with the best of intentions.

I've tried other fora which use different software, but never taken to them largely due to them not being this simplistic php format. Couldn't get my head around them, and wasn't inclined to make the effort TBH.

But, as said, this is Azz's house. He pays the mortgage and gets to decide on structural changes/extensions, decoration and furniture. We'll (have to) go with the flow.

Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

Azz, I don't think any of our members are stupid, but we may be a bit slow on technical things!

I am sure that Meg & Mags will know enough to help us with lots of things, but I do hope you will be around more at the start of this !

Like any new thing, some will learn faster than others, but the people here have always been good at helping other members so we should be ok.

Probably none of us like change, but I hope that you can show us that change is good sometimes.

I think they know what they are doing, certain they want all people to be happy with the updated forum.

....So being very optimistic myself....it will be for for the best..100%..........imagination wise

Sure some people will get lost in the...MAZE ..

what I mean is '' the walk in the park''' first steps and all that.....

Thanks for the update Azz. I'm sure we'll cope with the changes.

Apologies if I've missed anyone's post/question

Because it's not very good Bruce (Have a look here: forum.vbulletin.com)

Do you mean this one Roxy? https://www.over50sforum.com/showthread.php?t=21196

If so, fear not, because we'll be able to move any thread out of the archive and onto the public forum so long as it meets some criteria (such as being a thread where attachments weren't posted or a thread about videos - because attachments haven't been carried through and the old video code doesn't work on the new forum).

In cases where we can't move the thread out of the archive... we can simply start a new one

Ok EZR I'll try not to rush

I'm sure you'll all be fine If you've been using this forum (which isn't very intuitive at all really) the new one will be easy enough I am sure - it might take some time to get used to but then you'll wonder why we didn't do it sooner!

Here's some things it can do that this one can't:

- Automatically embed videos or photos into the post if their link/URL is on a separate line
- Do the same as above with links to BBC news stories, Tweets, etc
- Drag photos into the reply box for them to upload!
- @mention people - and they get notified they were mentioned!
- Get a notification if your thread is moved or edited and also be shown what was edited (so the before and after state)
- Get weekly digest emails if you haven't been online in a while
- Reply to threads by email

...and lots more

Fair enough Azz. In the meantime:
