The day has finally arrived for the release of the all-new board software. I have lots of plans for the site, which will expand considerably -- many of the plans have been on the back burner for two years or so, waiting for the software that would enable me to begin some of the redesign. The board will remain pretty much as is though there will be new features and possibilities, better integration with blogs and comments, ability to embed videos, and more.

Also the Library material will be moved to a main website.

All this will keep me busy over the next weeks and will of course be an ongoing transformation. Hopefully the board upgrade will go quickly and smoothly and I will signal when I will be doing that. But if you come and find the site is down, it will be because I am working on the transfer.

Very happy cavalier-filled holidays to all from CavalierTalk!

Thanks Karlin. :flwr:

Last time the board was updated, for some reason I couldn't get onto CT for days unless I came online through a different I.P. address, could that happen again?

If it does, bye for now, I'll be back when I can. Have a nice holiday everyone :)

Really excited about the new features... would people like the facility to be able to vote for threads if they like them? I was thinking that some threads end up being really helpful or interesting for lots of people and there is the facility to vote for threads when you do like them (I mean you don't need to do this for them all -- just if something is really useful or informative for example).

I haven't used this before but thinking I might enable that.

Yes it could take a while to connect to the site again but Pauline your experience would be very odd -- usually the servers update within 48 hours and generally within a couple of hours if not right away.

However that shouldn't really happen this time -- I think it only happened before because the site was being transferred to new servers with my new hosting service. And no nothing that dramatic happening -- this is in effect a 'board update' except that it is a completely new iteration of the software with a whole web package for creating a larger site.

Just NB: I will likely get our new board up and running between now and the end of the weekend... so expect some downtime.
