Iterative upgrades to the forum software are usually done silently in the background because they don't really affect you much. 

 

However, we've been long overdue a major upgrade from version 3.4.9 to the new 4.x release and due to a background administrative issue we can't fix on the old version, we're looking at doing this upgrade in the next couple of weeks. 

 

I wanted to share this link with you so you can take a few minutes to have a look at what's coming so it's not a complete surprise when we do it and you're at least familiar with the changes and any new features.

It's likely to need a few hours downtime but we'll tell you in plenty of time. Don't think anyone will have any questions around this but happy to try and answer anything if you do.

We don't like change.

Having just gone through a Joomla 2.5 to 3.6 upgrade, I wish you the best of luck!

Thanks for the heads up! Is logging in via Facebook ever going to be an option?

We could do that currently so it's more a forum decision than a software restriction. 

 

I've never really looked at how it works, I might see how it integrates. Not sure why anyone would want to?

It has been about a month and a half.

 

Has it been done yet?  I don't notice any differences.

No, I actually managed to fix the long standing issue so it's kinda been forgotten. New year sometime.
