Original Messageboard Down

It has come to my attention that the original ConservativeChitChat messageboard chat forum powered by YaBB has been knocked out of action.

I discovered this last week when I needed some stuff off the classic thread of posts highlighting what a scam climate change is.

I suspect the issues is something to do with a recent server upgrade the webhosts did the other month that probably messed with the CGI / Perl settings or maybe the channel permissions settings, and I’ll see if I can fix it when I have more time to poke around on the server.

The new messageboard forum integrated into this wordpress blog installation still works perfectly fine (apart from the fact there’s some spam to clean up off it again).

ConservativeChitChat Group on LinkedIn

A few moments ago I created a LinkedIn Group for ConservativeChitChat to extend the options for people of a Conservative persuasion to connect.

Tweaks Made To The Website

Overnight upgrades have been applied to the ConservativeChitChat website, including:

  • Attempt to fix top menu on the front of the website that was appearing black instead of the blue colour I set it to appear.
  • Refinements to fonts & font sizes
  • Change of background image on front page
  • Change of background image on search page
  • Minor alterations to display of banner adverts on main part of site
  • RSS feed enabled on new forums
  • Enhanced menu enabled on new forums instead of the basic one.
  • Social Media feed on front page fixed so Twitter posts appear in it (still no longer works with Facebook)
  • Zapped Webring banner at bottom of front page as it was failing to display anyway….
  • Changed forum link on top of front page from the old to the new forum.
