The site was down last night, got a 403 error. This seems to be an old forum skin.

Hi guys,

Our site went down last night because of some outdated scripts. So I had to upgrade to the latest version of the forum software, it’s currently missing our old Theme and branding (incompatible with this version) which I’ll have to get working again this weekend.

There might be other little issues, if you do see anything broken please do let me know and I’ll fix it.

Btw I’m aware that Tapatalk isn’t working currently for mobile users, I’ve been having some issues upgrading that plugin.

Cheers all

Thanks Howie.

I note the 'Thanks' feature has also been removed.

Cheers guys, yes thanks is definitely broken (there is no updated plugin for that yet, so could take a while).

Good news Tapatalk is now active again.

The new theme looks good. Though noticing a sh*t load of advertisements... from trading stocks to the latest bikini fashion

Yeah it’s a bit much, I’ll see if I can tone it down a little.

Is there a 'mark all topics/forums read' option hidden somewhere?

I haven’t seen one so far. Though you can find new posts when you click on your profile pic at the top of the header, the new menu is pretty cool actually.

Found the option, it's under your profile (click on your avatar at the top of screen).
