Re: Closing down of International Flyerz Forum

Its about R100 pm and then annual domain renewal of about R250.

Might not seem a lot but for the amount of traffic passing through the site with maybe 3 users accessing the site it's just not worth it.

Also the time for Admin to keep the site running and updated is another cost as well.

We would like to take this op...

Re: Portal as Bookmark

Afternoon All,

With the upgrade of the site to phpBB V3.2, we have had to do away with the Portal page for now as the extension does not work properly.

As and when the extension is designed properly for V3.2 will we make it available again.

Thanks
