Conversion to phpBB

Hi!

The forum has been successfully converted to phpBB this morning.

I will be posting some tips on how to use the best of it regularly.

But for now, if you have any question, please post them here ;)

By default no-one is logged in when arriving at the new forum, so the big yellow notice at the top wasn't visible. I just got Fred to change that!

It looks lovely! Congratulations on the transition, which I'm sure was much more complicated and hair-tearing than any of us "on the outside" could ever imagine. :)

On my phone so maybe Fred can be more specific if it's different on a desktop, but there's a menu in the top left hand corner, under the HFO banner, indicated by three horizontal lines. All your New Posts, Unread Posts etc are in there.

It's in there indeed. As a matter of fact I made it my first tip on how to use phpBB ;)
