! Message from: vw-widow
Due to technically issues with this forum, we have created a new fresher looking forum - we are asking all members to register on https://www.vwgolfmk2.co.uk/clubforum sorry for any inconvenience.

If your a paid member, once you have registered, pm vw-widow with your details, and you will be re-instated.

Build threads etc can be copied and pasted to the new site, sadly we couldn't merge the database.

This site will close on the 1st June 2020. All data will be deleted.
Thanks Admin

A change to the forum- important please read

Postby vw-widow » Wed May 06, 2020 10:10 am

Over the past few years, the forum has been technically having issues.

We have tried to work around this for some time but have made the decision to change the platform, this is going to have some impact due to the issue that this current forum platform and the new platform don’t want to communicate to each other, mainly due to the fact that this forum runs on an early phbb software.

So, in the back ground a new site has been launched, vwgolfmk2.co.uk/clubforum

The downside of the change is that not being able to transfer the database, members will need to register on the above site. Apologies all different ways have been exhausted trying to do this, and not by me.

If your a paid member, this will be sorted once you have registered, just send me a pm when you have joined.

Any build threads etc, are easy copied and pasted over. This is done by clicking on the thread, go in to edit, select all copy and paste to new site.

We have been doing this over the past week with info from the knowledge library etc so it doesn’t look to bear when members sign up.

We wanted to keep this current site as read only, but we anticipate that this can’t be done and will at some point, go off line.

Please join us on the new site, Sorry for any inconvenience.

When you have a topic you want to copy click - across from the title of the topic you will see a pen (edit), x, !, i, "

click on the pen, which will open up the topic, in the topic box there you can select all by ctrl & A, and ctrl C,

Go over to new site, start new topic and ctrl v - this will carry forward all the links etc
