I have ported the site across from around 12 days ago.

https://zoesport.co.uk/

You will need to reset your password to get into the test site. It wont change this sites password

There are a few minor issues. See if you can find them

Have you all checked out zoesport.co.uk? Is that the look and feel + feature set that you want as a group?

If not you just need to say so. I wont take it personally :)

Thanks. Like that all the recent threads are presented at the top.
Super colourful, not sure about that.
What are the main new features?
Tried posting and that worked but wasn’t able to end it the post.

Appreciate the feedback. I can tone down the colours if needed. I just imported the data and let it chose the colours itself.

Main new features are :

Optimised for mobile
Infinite scrolling ( long posts are continuous , so you can keep on moving down until the end. )
Looks great out of the box
very fast

there are lots of bits behind the scenes that are great and I have tested such as
Easy to use plugins - the things that extend the software so its easier say to upload images
Upgrades/updates of the software are ridiculously easy compared to the nightmare phpbb upgrade process
It appears to have a more thorough roadmap rather than phpbb which seems to have stagnated.


the vendors highlight the following:

Just had a look at the Flarum site. It's something I know bugger all about but it was set out very clearly and simply, so I'm thinking the actual forum will be top drawer if we adopt it.
