    Ok,

    VB4 beta is out now, and I am giving you a chance to have a look at the new format that is much easier on the eye.

    New posts updated daily
    http://www.national-preservation.com/beta/search.php?do=getdaily&contenttype=vBForum_Post
    User Blogs
    http://www.national-preservation.com/beta/blog.php
    And the forum
    http://www.national-preservation.com/beta/forum.php

    It's empty as it's a beta. But please let me know what you all think.
    Don't expect it to work 100%

    There are a lot of bugs, items like the main page not working (The CMS)

    But you should get a feel for it.

    Please feel free to register and play about.
    Nothing will be kept from it.

    We will now be installing this latest version of software.
    Properly overnight tonight or tomorrow night, from 10pm onwards.
    This will have no effect on your accounts, usernames or passwords.
    The forum will be closed buring this period just to allow the correct permissions set's to be checked and avatars etc to be moved across.
    The forum will be going live after the install 9:00am the next morning.

    Any problems or things you want to ask whilst the forum is down please either call me on 07816232172 or email forum@national-preservation.com

    I am looking forwards to keeping National Preservation at the forefront of forum software & community's.

    Cheers

    In preparation of this, We have added 512MB RAM to the server,
    Should make things run a lot faster.

    I have also been bust optimizing the Database and repairing where needed.

    I have now started to disable various systems and fuctions. This will enable a smooth transfer and import of the database.

    Looks like we're all set for the move.
    Just waiting for 10pm to come along.

    Whilst I have been waiting and working, I have noticed a really cool feature
    within the new software,
    You can choose exactly who can see your profile and any particular part of your profile.
    You can have everyone see your details, or just your friends, or even just registered users.
    Adding more security and piece of mind.

    That was a lot quicker then I thought.
    Any problems, Permission issues etc. contact myself or any of the team and we will try to sort it out.
