Thanks tommy!
Another thing that would be good for people to check is their privacy settings- I believe all old settings carried over but please take the opportunity to make sure all the info in your public profile (age etc) is stuff you are happy to share.

Great job with the transfer...
Excuse me, but I'm new here and was wondering when 'newforum' gets switched over to 'forum' will all the cross-posts and links in the old threads work again?

Whenever Kim is ready to do so. :)

Kim - it all works now, so you can switch back when you want.

Good question, Alchemistal. I'm not sure if the same URLs get carried over for internal posts and links! Can anyone tell if they still work once you change the directory name?

SS I am ready to "switch over" - I have just changed the old forum to "inactive" mode, and have renamed the directory to "oldforum" on the server - leaving it on there for a bit just in case we do run into any issues.
Are you able to edit the Wordpress navigation link to the forum and change "newforum" to "forum" on the server? Once that is done then we should be back to normal :)

Golly, this is all a bit modern. Nice ! And everyone's dragged back down to 'Muckraker' status; I don't quite feel so noobish.
Cheers all for the on going efforts.

The forum has just been upgraded, so some things may look a bit different. Hopefully everything still works!
