Earlier this morning I upgraded the software running the forum to BBF 1.8.0. This release has no noticable functional changes but contains many small cosmetic and bug fixes in the phpBB code.

Once again I'm hoping you will not notice any ill effects but in the background many small changes were made. If you do experience any troubles or strange effects please let me know.

The only noticable effect you will see is that you may have to login again even if you have previously said you want to stay logged in. This is due to some changes in the way the autologin and session handling is done to improve security.

I'm hoping this does not cause a problem whereby people cannot remember their passwords. Remember, if you cannot remember your password you can click the I forgot my password link on the login screen accessible via the link at the top of the page.

Thanks for the warning, (too late!)

I did forget my password, unfortunately so many sites and all requiring passwords, some of which have already been used by others!

I must fine a totally unique password and change every site over!

The forum software we use, phpBB released an upgrade today. This is the "we wish you all a happy new year" release and contains a few minor fixes and a few security fixes. I have hurriedly released version 1.9.0 of BBF which includes this upgrade. I hope you will not notice this upgrade at all, but rest assured, you should feel safer in bed tonight. Wink

The forum was just down for a few minutes to load this update, but other than Strixaluco no one appeared to be on the board so I hope no one noticed this either.

Thanks for all your work, John! Flowers

I'm about to go and get my safe night's sleep... Yawn after mucking about about a bit with the new emoticons! Thumbs up
