    Software upgrade coming

    During the course of this weekend I'll be upgrading the vBulletin software of The Forum SA.

    It is a fairly significant upgrade which affects some of the additional components and customisations we use for the site. The forum itself will not be available for about two hours (I'll try to pick a time when things are quiet), but returning everything else to normal might take a bit longer.

    So if you pop round over the weekend, don't be surprised if things look a bit odd at times.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    The core platform updates are now complete. It should be safe to post from now on.

    Don't worry if the layout isn't exactly the way things were before, but please report any function problems.

    I noticed that the "Links" directory is not working, with this error message,

    =======================================
    Unexpected critical failure
    Critical Error: Links and Downloads Manager v.2.2.8 requires VBulletin version 3.5/3.6

    I think I've got it running again. Please report any problems as I haven't checked all the functionality.
