I have just logged onto the site for the first time in quite a few months.
I'm aware of errors on the site,  the site has not been maintained for quite some time.

I suspect the errors are linked to background updates beyond my control.
I'll try to look over the weekend into this.

Please note that generally the site is no longer maintained.
I still cover hosting costs and will keep the site up as long as I can, but ongoing maintenance is not the same as when the site was initially setup.

I'll update this with what I find. Apologies to everyone that uses the site, it's only myself that does the maintenance and I've generally let the site be 'as is' for some time now.

Update:

After researching online I have been able to 'bodge' the forum back for now.
However the forum software we run is simply very old, and will soon be no longer supported by what runs it.

I'll look into the options available over the coming weekends.
It will likely mean a major upgrade to the forum, so the look/feel is likely to change quite a bit.
However I will do my best to keep all the original postings/photos/guides etc.

If anyone has experience in forums/php feel free to drop me a message.

For now the site is back, but will need major work in the near future if it's to stay up and running into the future.
I had hoped to keep the forum ticking along 'as is', but will now look into the options available.

Hope all of you are well, the site is a bit like our vans...needs some welding  Grin

Whats your paypal?

It would be a great shame to see all the information lost.  I would say contained within these posts is answered to 99% of Rascal issues.  I assume youve done a backup!

Got a bit of HTML PHP experience but not alot.

Hello Van, I am computer illiterate so cant run a site but I am more than happy to make a donation if you will be out of pocket to keep it going.
