Liberty1st Forum 2.0

I am working on replacing the forum software used here on Liberty1st. The current forum has been in place for over 10 years now and is really showing its age (both in the technology used and the available features). The new forum is based on newer technology and contains many new features that the old forum did not. At this point I am still figuring out how to enable and modify the feature set so things are probably going to be fluid for a while more. 

I have put this off for a couple of years now because I was hoping that I could find a way to import everything from the old forum into the new one. However, turns out, the task wasn’t a trivial one and although I would have preferred to migrate the posts I no longer think it can be done without a tremendous amount of time and or money.

So I am essentially starting over. If you haven’t ever been to the Liberty1st forum or if it has been a while since you visited please stop by and say hello. The forum is a place where you can discuss topics concerning St Joseph County, MI (and beyond).

I will probably still be tweaking the template and settings a week or two yet so don’t be surprised if it looks different from day to day. The old forum will stay up as an archive and although I am going to allow the current members to post I am going to block any new members from signing up there.

I apologize that you cannot use your old account to sign into the new forum but the new forum does allow you to use your Facebook sign in to log on and post to the site, or you prefer, you can register for an account the traditional way.

I hope to see you there,
