    Hello and welcome to the upgraded C-Bus Forums :).

    You may have seen the announcement a few days ago that said the forums were being run by a new administrator - so I wanted to post this as a hello!

    There is a lot of forum to be done to the forum over the coming 48 hours - so please consider the site as "beta" in it's current state. The transfer of forum software proved to be quite problematic due to some of the plugins not being compatible with our server, so I took the plunge and upgraded it immediately. To do without the plugins would have meant we would be overrun with spam on the old forum software (the previous administrator managed to block almost 600,000 spam registrations according to the logs!).

    Please let me know any problems you spot with the forum upgrade in this thread. We're running the default theme at the moment, but this will change in a few hours. Forum icons, site text etc... all need to be added.

    I'll post a little more on ideas and improvements once the forum upgrade is fully complete in the coming days.

    I've finished most of the cosmetic features of the site, although the logo and forum icons may have some little tweaks over the coming days. I hope the new site is working well for you all.

    I'm in the process of adding an articles section to the site, so that we've got a repository for useful tutorials, information, etc... I'll begin by moving over existing articles, but I'll open it up in the coming days to accept new submissions, once we're ready.

    Thank you for continuing this excellent forum and thank you to the previous administrator. One of the main reasons I chose to use C-Bus (starting back in 2008) was the excellent advice posted here.

    Thank you to whoever the last administrator was also and thank you for passing the reins rather than letting the site die..
