So the SQL issue you guys were getting when attempting to create a new post was due to the database migration from the old forums to the new didn't quite make all the needed changes. I made a change to allow the last post subject field to be null which has meant the new posts work. Ill need to test a little further to make sure it doesn't cause any issues elsewhere but in the mean time go create any new topics needed.

Well done Ging, I have been able to get some threads started today, you have been doing a great job.
One link I used a lot on the old format was 'New Posts' and I guess 'Active Posts' if not logged on.
I see these are now under 'Quick Links' which is great if you know or know to look, but not as easy for us non-techable types.
Sorry to be a pain, no pressure or time frame, but can these put be back in the Menu bar?

Hey Ging,

The update seems to have lost tapatalk support?
When trying to log in to the forum from tapatalk, I get a sql error.

Yeah I had been planning to get the forums to 3.2 before installing any of the extensions.
Tapatalk extension has been uploaded and enabled. (but I don't have the app anymore to test it just yet).

That will require an extension to provide that functionality. I'll have a wee check this evening hopefully and see if there is one.

Good work Ernie.
I understand this thread about as much as a non car person understands a thread about engine tech.
They don't call me the man with the rubber arm for nothing you know.............
