The contact forms from the committee & contact us page has been changed from Joomla based to mad4joomla which logs some of the senders details and also uses a captcha (anti bot device) as some committee members have been receiving spam via the site.

The forum has been upgraded from version 1.0.8 to 1.0.9 which fixes some security issues and bugs as well as enhancing some features such as a advance search.

Re:Site Upgrades 10 years 2 weeks ago #5

Last week the site was moved to a new server with mush more capacity and faster processors, so the site should run even faster.

As with these things you always come accross a few conflictions and bugs and I have been working with the site engineers to resolve these issues which all known issues have now been resolved.

I have also added for registered members shipping movement which show the current position of (larger) vessels around the island.

If anyone finds any bugs or has any questions ether post or pm me.

In order for a better appearance for different screen resolutions I have made the site fixed width instead of fluid.
A fluid width site automatically adjust to the screen resolution which works well unless you have an image such as the one we have as a header with the higher screen resolutions will show a blank space on one side of the image or the other or on both sides.

If anyone finds any bugs or has any questions ether post or pm me.

Re:Site Upgrades 9 years 7 months ago #7

Some visitors to the site may have noticed a change in the contact forms.
This change was made as a result of some members receiving spam mail generated by spam bots. We are now using aiContactSafe mail forms which has a built in anti bot device thus eliminating spam emails generated by spam bots.

The site software has been upgraded today to 1.5.14 which resolves 1 security issue and several minor bugs.

The Forum software has also been upgraded to 1.5.6 which resolves 1 security issue and several minor bugs with a few refinements.

Members can now embed You Tube videos in their posts.

See Below.
