Running on new platform

E-mail Print PDF

After more work than I'd've liked, the site is running on the latest and greatest version of Joomla, having been upgraded from a shamefully old version of Mambo. So we're good for another few years, at least. There are still problems - the forums are lost, and will need recovering, but there are also pockets of good news. I believe (some verification could be done here) that it will now be possible for registered members to post articles, and to maintain their own picture galleries. I also think it will be possible to have several people involved in administration, so that things don't necessarily need to pile up like they have been. So hopefully things are good!

Let me know (Through the contact link, or by email if we've already been in touch) what you think, and if you'd like me to change anything. I'm intending to give each of you access to maintain your own picture galleries over the next couple of days, but if I fail to do so and you'd like access, let me know.

I'll be working on the forums over the next few days - but to be honest it may take me more than this week, after which I'll be on vacation - so it may be sometime in September before they're back online. I could put up a new one easily - but I don't want to lose what we've already built up, so I hope you don't mind being patient while I convert the old ones over.

Thanks, and enjoy,




Doug Heckrotte, Quetzal's owner, has offered to take over as webmaster of the LeComte Owner's site. Thanks, Doug! Given that I've (Chris) been busy elsewhere, and no longer own a LeComte (although I obviously still love them), this is very helpful of him, and should be very good for the site as he gets his feet wet and figures out how to maintain things. I'll still help out as I'm able, but since that's proven to be sparse in recent times, this is very good news.

Thanks again, Doug!

Thanks for the confidence, Chris.  I shall be climbing the learning curve as quickly as practicable.
