Software Update

Post by iandvl »

Folkses - a quick notice.

I've got a software update I will need to apply. I've already tested everything on the development site, and I've got one or two niggles that I will sort out tomorrow.

My intention is to apply the update on Sunday morning. The forum will be unavailable for about 30 minutes whilst I do this.

There is good news too. When the software update is done, the forum will also be available via Tapatalk - which will make things considerably easier for people using mobile devices to access the forum. I will post details on this all once it is done.

Right folkses. The software update is done. We're now running the latest stable release of the 3.2 branch of phpBB. There is a newer major version of phpBB (3.3) which I will look at updating to, but I need to do some investigation into this first.

If there are any niggles, please feel free to let me know.

One of the major changes with the updates is the fact that I've integrated the forum with Tapatalk, which will make it easier for people to interact with the forum using a mobile device.

Tapatalk is a mobile app you can install on your phone.

The Android application link is: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... y&hl=en_ZA

Apple iPhone application link is: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/tapatalk- ... d307880732

Once installed, simply search for "Patrol 4x4 Africa", and add it. Once you've added the forum, it will appear on the homepage for Tapatalk. Simply open it, and sign on to the forum using your forum username or password, and you're good to go.

If there are any issues, feel free to let me know. I may not always be online, but feel free to WhatsApp or call, on zero-82-double-three-7-8-nine-10.
