Apparently, there's going to be an upgrade over the next month. Because of impending travel plans I have not had the time to examine the new features. Anyone familiar with ProBoards v5 and wants to share their thoughts can do so.
Well, the upgrade has happened. I had a devil of a time trying to log in. There is a new/added security feature with the upgrade. As I understand it, forum members will NO longer be able to log in with their old username and password. Instead, members will have to go to the top of the forum and select the Register hyperlink and create a Proboards Global account after-which you can THEN link your new Proboards Global account with your OLD Shaggy God forum account. Be patient with the Proboards linking software process, it took me several attempts before success.
Note: After you have linked your Proboards Global account with your old Shaggy God Forum (SGF) account, you will THEN need to log on to your NEW Proboards LINKED Global account first (before) logging in to and accessing the SGF.
As for the forum changes, any feedback positive or negative is welcomed.
