There have been some changes, and we apologise if we confuse you in the process 😯
Regular visitors to the main website will have noticed a change or two… (June 3 2009) The old static HTML version was very difficult to maintain due to the sheer volume of pages, and it was not easy to find required content quickly. We hope we’ve addressed that, and we’ve also added significant additional image content. That will progressively be tagged by location / road number etc to make it easier to know whats where.
There’s also enhanced provision for advertising, improved search facilities and much more…
Currently, the forum / message board is running on phpBB v2.22 – upgraded from Snitz Forum software in Nov 2007. V.2.xx of phpBB is virtually obsolete, phpBB v3.x getting all the development. We are planning a migration to vBulletin instead of an upgrade to phpBB 3.
vBulletin is a commercial product, well supported and with good documentation. The “Adventure Rider” forum runs on vBulletin. It offers some enhanced functionality, and of course some trade-offs due to different feature sets. Overall, we think its the best way forwards for GT-Rider.com.
