    Hi Pete, yes, it is a bit of hard work and it has given me a couple of headraces but stick with it, its worth it.
    Just take your time and navigate around a bit.

    Hi Pete,

    I am sorry if you are finding the new system hard work, and I do understand your comments. Are there any specific things that I can help out with?

    With any new system, there will always be a period of adjustment for people. phpBB was holding back the future development of the site, and moving away was going to be something that had to happen at some stage. If there was any development being carried out on a next version of phpBB it might have been worthing hanging on, but there isn't... That said it's not just us, but many other forums are being faced with the same dilemna.

    If you can let me know any specifics, then I will see if there is something I can do.

    Gary

    One thing that may be useful Gsz is a guide to posting pictures. I am still struggling with this especially as many of the hosting sites (eg Photobucket) self generate forum codes in php format with img tags. I don't find getting the correct links very intuitive.

    In all honesty Titan, I thought I had done one. Clearly in my mad rush to document stuff, I've miss an important one! The good news on that front is that it's easier to add photo's than it ever was on Zorg v1.0

    Will try and get something documented asap!

    I just clicked the upload file button to the bottom right to up load one today, but i guess that ties up server space and is not the correct method?

    No problem on server space at all, plenty of room available. I personally prefer to uploads to the site. It's less likely to be lost than when people clear out their Photobucket account without thinking!;)
