You did, you lucky thing!

We are still in the same place.  I did my bit with no problems, but the new host discovered - eventually - that because of the way the forum software was originally set up they could not display it correctly.  It's taken the entire day to find that we were on a hiding to nothing.

I have to say that they are right, the coding is very odd in places.

At least I can take some codeine for my headache and earache now that my brain is no longer required to function properly...

I just remembered when Stitchers Guild migrated they had a dreadful time getting placed onto the new server. They also use SMF. Julie had backups of everything and was able to create an archive site with the old posts, read only, but eventually had to start a new active forum. It was part SMF problems, part the new people she'd gone to. Hope you have better luck!

@Acorn do have a rest. Hopefully there will be no TSP birthdays for a few days.  Making all those cakes must take up a lot of your time.

@Iminei and @Acorn    Thank you both for getting this changeover done quickly and smoothly.  The only query I have is will it be necessary to join Facebook or can I carry on ignoring FB?

@Acorn - I do hope your headache improves. I know only too well what it's like, trying to concentrate on something when your head is pounding - it makes the brain go to mush, especially if you know other people are depending on you doing your "job" properly. You deserve a rest and some peace and quiet.  <3

To be Clear Folks

We have not (yet) migrated to the new host.....


Acorn and I will recoup sometime in the next week to reconsider our options.

We are all back in our old home ... you know the one, with the pencil marks on the kitchen door frames that showed us how we've grown, with that splotch on the wall by the fridge where @Lowena  fell and spilled her fifth cup of coffee and that embarrassing stain on the carpet in the hall where ... well you know what happened there!!!

Sshhhhh!   :|

It was lovely to get back to the old place this afternoon...

I will just add that Iminei and I carried out our parts perfectly, but the prospective host and the forum software were unable to agree with each other.

Thanks @Iminei  and @Acorn for your hard work, I can remember this sort of experience in my work in the NHS, very nerve wracking. It'll be OK .

@Renegade Sewist: I finally quite a forum that moved from Lithium to Flarum.  I really tried to make the transition, but a lot of functionality was lost and I was tied of the same old stale arguments anyway.

I wish to propose a round of applause and many cheers to @Iminei & @Acorn for making sure that we still have a working forum after a failed migration. This shows just how lucky all of users and members are to have them at our side.
BRAVO!! :toast: :toast: :toast: :toast:
