On the 28th of October this month a major update to this software will be released, I have updated the forum many times in the past and it is currently on the latest 3.0.12 and up to date.
However this new one is like I say a major one and it will make many changes to the software that this forum runs on including many back end and front end features this also means that all of the mods installed on the forum will now be incompatible and will have to be removed.
New and compatible versions are being wrote but to date none are ready yet this means if I update the software now the forum will not work as it is at the moment, no more ranks no more fancy formatting no more Portal with the side blocks.
So I have decide to wait for a wile and see what mods become available over the next few weeks but I have no guarantee that all of these mods will be updated so some may never be reinstalled.
I will keep this thread updated as and when I have more on this.
