The forum unfortunately was moved over to a new server yesterday, I had little warning about this and suggested it was not a good idea to move.
I was sent an email at 8pm that it would be moved from 10pm.
But alas my web guy took no notice and just decided off his own back to move it over, at the moment all the posts from yesterday have disappeared and many if not the majority of pictures have gone as well. We did have this problem once before and they were all recovered except for a couple of days worth of posts. At the moment not sure what is happening.

I noticed some of the entries into the April competition have disappeared too, it might be worth postponing your draw a few days until you have them back? unless you can remember who they were, Kevin was one of them I think.

Grrrr.......must be a nightmare for you Graham, and so frustrating as you told your guy not to make the change, bur he did anyway

Lots of pics you click on the black cross and it says they don't exist anymore :o

Hope it can be sorted, and hope you have a good weekend despite the stress :D

And the other thing is for some reason I'm unable to log in to balloonchat or balloonartwholesale main page from my main computer or laptop from home.

http://www.balloonartwholesale.co.uk/

When I look via my phone all the pictures are still there as well, well they were this morning.

I'm using my dongle at the moment to write this from the laptop, all posts from yesterday were deleted when the site moved over so at the moment the technical term
is I have no clue what is going on, perhaps I should go into politics as many there seem to have no clue as well :D

Why has there been so many server changes?

I'd be pretty annoyed with my host if they moved our business website and then broke it.

The other server was down on a regular basis. The forum is a pretty complicated, it is phpbb and then it has had some seo added and on top of that the front page blends in to look like the rest of the pages. It is also 6 years old and technology moves on pretty quick. Once we get all the pictures back up and sorted we are looking to change it again to a completely new format, it is either that or just pull the plug on it all.

I've installed and run a phpbb forum before when I was heavily into PC gaming, but haven't used it for a good few years now. Saying that though, it was just a base install with minimal modification. We had a standard HTML site with the forum in the background, not merged like yours but used similar colours so it looked ok.


It'd be a real shame if you pulled the plug, it has been a good help to me and I do come and visit at least every other day.

Well, the question you have to ask yourself now Graham is....Is it worth keeping this forum going?

Well the photos are still down as I am sure everyone is aware of so I have a suggestion. How about posting some photos on various topics to give the site a helping hand. After all its there because we contribute and then we can all dip into the pool for ideas. I have made a start by posting a collection or Elsa balloons. What a phenomenon that is. I think Elsa and Spiderman are the biggest hit balloons I have ever had. I keep re-inventing them so I don't get bored. So maybe I will post some Spiderman balloons too later today.
