PentaxUser website

Post by John » Fri Jul 18, 2008 6:26 pm

After a traumatic couple of days, the PentaxUser website is now settling down again.

http://www2.pentaxuser.co.uk

I'll update the main page link in due course.

They have ipgraded the site and the forum. The upgrade of the forum caused a massive backlash from the users as they decided on a custome made one instead of just upgrading to phpBB3. There were so many bugs it was like an anthill.

It has settled down now and slowly but surely they are making something that users can use like phpBB3.

Was it worth it? Well it has integrated the site with the forum but for the majority of users who only use the forum it has probably not done very much except shake them up. Time will tell if the changes encourage people to use other areas of the site. The jury is out!

Why not have a look and see what you think?

I suspect that it IS phpBB3 and has a customised template that they have created. Obviously the template had some bugs in it. . . . I could do that for my website but it is actually a lot of work!
