#1
Hello everyone,

Here is a log on some recent fixes for our forum and also remaining fixes/upgrades to be done in the near future :)

If anyone notices any issues or bugs with the forum please help us by letting us know by posting here :thumbup:

Completed in the last 30 days:
  • Upgraded the server PHP version from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.2 which now allows our forum to respond 50% faster.
  • Fixed the "Received Thanks" notification options in Board Preferences section. You can now toggle these options On and Off without it being stuck on "Off".
  • Removed spammy Google ads with videos and sound (will keep an eye on these).
  • Fixed issue with members not being able to upload PDF files over 250kb. The limit is now 100mb for each attachment.
  • Compressed and reduced size of all forum icons and banners by 40% (to load faster on low speed connections).
  • Site is now 98% mobile-friendly (still one more page to go which is the "Who Is Online" page.

Currently working on & to be completed within 90 days:
  • Top priority is to have only two static Google Ad units per page (one on the right hand side and one on the bottom) to further improve speed, user experience & make the forum look cleaner.
  • Upgrade phpBB forum software once given the all clear by developers.
  • Site will be 100% mobile-friendly.
  • Recent Topics side bar does not auto-adjust for pages and topic selection pages with less posts or content causing the Recent Topics and News side bar to stick out below. This will be worked on and fixed.
  • Another 1000 indicators, EA and Script files need to be uploaded from the saved archives.
  • Additional tweaks due for even more lightweight and faster loading for slower internet connections.

Remaining:
  • Have not addressed the site search issue yet. Still unable to search for three-lettered words in the site search. Temporary solution here.
