Ancient 1.x Expression Engine.
All Hail Jake Bunce once again...
Heck, he even moved passwords.......and got most of the bugs out in relation to EE importing.
EE served us well and we are still using parts of the CMS portion. It's great for folks who ALSO have a forum, but not ideal (any longer) if the forum is the main part of the site. The developers are somewhat following the money - and the money is in corporate and business sites, not in forums.
Now that's a huge forum
You'll need to work on a custom design or at least change the default skin a little, but moving such a big forum to XF is a great accomplishment. Hope you like XF, it's a pretty nice piece of software
That banner is a notification - add-on!
Thanks for the suggestions. I think I can fill that top up better as you say.
We are starting to kick butt at this time of year! Jake is working on finalizing the moving of my stove rating database to the XF look (it will be integrated visually). My site is a never ending work in progress...
