I'm gonna cut a long story short. I'm having backdoor attacks on the wordpress CMS, i'm plugging hole after hole. I'm done with it. Seeing the place is pretty dead I will be focussing on a site redesign, a new look and a new CMS that is forum-based and integrated with here. Articles will be able to be promoted to front page, so anyone will be able to contribute to the site. Since installing this forum, we've hardly had any issues with hacking or spamming. I think this is the way forward and I will be updating you all soon. What will change? YOUR DATA WILL REMAIN AS-IS on the forums. The conversations here will not be lost or deleted. The site design and maybe colours I think the photo user albums may disappear. I will email all users of that album to remove any sensitive images on there. It will be replaced with something else. The chat box will probably disappear. As I expected, people would rather chat in there than post in the forums, making it pretty dead (we all know this place is pretty dead right now, I don't want to promote that even more) Wordpress front end will be gone for good. The front page will be integrated with the forums - your login and ID will work everywhere. There will probably downtime. I'm thinking of trashing the server and starting fresh. Can I help? Yes you can, if you have ideas I'm always happy to hear them. I'm not a PHP guy, so I can't build stuff - i have to use third party paid plugins. So I can't always envision people's ideas, sorry! Will keep you all posted.
