    It means that the old avatars will soon be available but if you wish to use your own, just make it a camping like theme. Your fine tfischer.

    As a former webmaster of a forum for a local car club for over 10 years, I can appreciate the hard work that it takes to manage and migrate forum software. I've only been a lurker here for a couple of months but thank you to all who manage and support this website.

    One thing I have noticed is that links that point to previous forum posts or to previous forum media take me back to the forum home page. One example is the happy camper fun book found at the link below. I've seen this problem before when transitioning from one software version to another but I'm not sure if a mod or patch is available to preserve old links.

    I hope this helps. Thanks again!

    Sometimes that's possible, e.g. with some mappings via an .htaccess file, but it tends to be hard to set up unless there's a pre-written one going from the old software to the new.
