Default Site problems?

Tim or Howard,

Site was down for a bit earlier and now the site banners been replaced with a vbulletin logo. Any idea what's going on?

Yes.

Our server host was upgrading the software with the latest version, which, as it turned out, was flawed. This is what was causing the problems.

I suppose the jtrforums logo was another casualty, but it should be easily fixed.

We have since reverted back to the previous version and all should now be well.

Hi Tim

I thought you'd like to know that the links such as "new posts" or "search" has disappeared from above the forums - and the smilies

Regards

Nemo

The whole site must be riddled with bugs if you came up with that result!

Folks:

Try changing "skins"...at the very bottom of the page and go to the original default skin. I see 'search' and 'new posts' when I use the original skin.

Hopefully, our people can sort this out soon.

Mike:

Nothing that I can do at the moment, but hopefully Tim will contact our people and they'll be able to do something. Sorry pal.

Hope you feel better.
