Upgrade to PHPBB3 to Happen on Tuesday - 10/8

I will be doing the switchover to the new PHPBb3 forum on Tuesday, probably in the early afternoon (In Eastern Time). The forums will be locked down before the switchover but should be back up within a half an hour on the new forums. I will try to do the switch when I see that there is no one online...

I've installed the new forum as a test in a different directory and have been working on it and testing all weekend with some help from some of our moderators. It looks good so far, quite a few changes to get use to but all for the better I think. Unless I spot a major issue in the next day or so I ...

In further reading it looks like they decided to NOT implement the easy modification ability. So any modifications (Mods) i want to add still need to be done the hard way. However hopefully the need for modificatios won't be as great as there are a lot of new features by default on the forum that ne...

PHPBB3 - Major Upgrade to Forum Has to Happen Soon

I was notified by our webhost that they will be upgrading to PHP 5. PHP is the program code that the forum script (PHPBB2) is written in. Unfortunately PHP 5 breaks a lot of code that was written for PHP 4. The PHPBB2 forum script is one of the ones that doesn't work well in PHP 5. PHPBB has been wo...

I am saddened by this news. Richard and I disagreed on a lot of points but he always had my respect. My thoughts are with him and his loved ones. If there is anything we can do please let us know.

With the new Seeking the Spiritual book coming out it is currently costing $88 per year to keep all titles in the distribution channels. With every new book we put out that cost goes up by $12. As long as the sales from all books cover the total yearly distribution costs I will continue to keep all ...

In the past the "royalties" made from all the book sales through the year would cover the cost of keeping all of the books in print, even the ones that were older and not selling. However with every new book that comes out the balance has slowly been tipping. It doesn't help that the publisher used ...
