Woah! This was unexpected! :shock:

Nice job on the upgrade, things are looking a lot better. :)

Do realise that there are still a few wrinkles to iron out like missing posts. Have found a new one though: the website comes up as 'Not Available on Android. Tried using Boat Browser, Boat Browser Mini, Opera Classic, Opera Mini and Browser and makes no difference.

Frank, I can get to this board on Android just fine. If you're using your phone, try switching WiFi on or off, and try again.

Don't tend to use Wi-Fi too much as it drains the battery.

Now starting working on Android. Strange, but it working and that's the main thing.

Thanks for your help.

It's because you just needed to refresh your browser history. It was probably taking you back to the old website.

It wasn't that as stated I tried to connect to it using a variety of browsers.

The main thing is that it is now working.

Hear ya,
Also it could have been the ISP, it still recognized the old address and had not updated yet. Thus it took you to the old address, while some ISP's had updated and took you to the new location. Yeah, as you say it's all good now.

Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to keep NWOF alive!
I had no idea this change was coming, and had some NWO withdrawal when the old forum went M.I.A.

I'll look into it -- I think 8-10 would be a good number. There must be some kind of consolidation feature or mod for this board.

Done...at least in part. I've rolled up the Album Reviews, Concerts and Interviews into one. Also consolidated the Genres into General NW, which I think makes sense.
