I have been in the process of upgrading and customising the current AHB skin. As far as I can see everything is pretty much done.

Can you please have a look at the Testing Site

and report any errors you see regarding the skin.

Feel free to post however this is an old database snapshot and all posts will be deleted anyway. I'm just sharing this link to make sure everything is working properly before I launch it live.

Hopefully it has a nicer feel and well take AHB to the next level.

Many of the new features haven't been added yet, but they are on their way.

Report any problems here....thanks.

BTW you *may* need to login with your details again....and you need to login to see some of the new stuff at the top...

Some of the new features....

RSS / XML feeds
Lo-Fi Version
Overall forum software easier to use
Weblinks section is being re-added (and will work this time)
New and improved chat system
Ability to have a designated front page with seperate content....

Gallery Upgrade, Online Store and Recipe DB are still in the pipeline.

Suggestions welcome!

Oh and the merchandise is happening...I PROMISE! :p

Oh one other thing....the site has been setup for 1024x768 res....if you are running 800x600 (or god forbid 640x480) you will get scrollbars. In this day and age I think it is fair enough, but I will check some logs/stats and see how many people are still using 800x600.

I will probabaly just make a modified narrow skin that will work for 800x600 so everyone can just choose what they want.

have you changed your password?

This is a pretty old database snapshot so if you have changed it the old DB will have the old password.

If you can't remember it just use :

test/test

The new site looks tops. Much sleeker feel to it. One thing, i always notice it, the calendAr link is called calendEr on both this and the new site.

Cheers, Rob

Ok i'm probably going to wait till it gets a litle bit quiet on here later on tonight and close posting down and then do the upgrade. Any issues I can sort out on the fly once the new forum/skin has been installed.

I'm going to leave this until tommorow. I'll take the forums offline, so I can get a snapshort of the database, and the upgrade everything. Hopefully by tommorow night we should all be running smoothly on the new forum and skin.

Stay Tuned.
