Site Update - New Software Version 02/23/2017NEW FORUM SOFTWARE Welcome to the updated version of Canal World.
Why did we change the site? We had to update the site for a number of reasons: The discussion forum software we previously used was initially released over 5 years ago. While it has been maintained over the years, it's no longer optimised for use with current technology. The dissussion forum software previously used is no longer supported by our vendor. This would make it difficult to receive support should we encounter any problems. It is important that we keep up to date Mobile browser support was very limited. The new version will bring many improvements for mobile users The new version of the forum software includes many security and feature enhancements. Is there anything I need to be aware of? Members must now login using their display name. Most members already did this, however some member used a 'login name' which was not the same as their display name. A number of significant design and functionality changes have been introduced including the search functionality. We recommend taking some time to familiarise yourself with this. The search functionality is still being updated. We have worked to get the forum back online as soon as possible, but due to the size of the database it will take some time to re-index all posts. We expect the search functionality to be fully functional within the next 72 hours and you will see gradual improvements. We appreciate your patience. We encountered an unexpected hitch with the Facebook login functionality. While this is now resolved, we regret that some users may have to re-sync their profile should they wish to login using Facebook. Should you encounter any login problems, please email email@example.com, stating your display name. (e.g. RichM) We look to make continual improvements based on user feedback where possible. What if I have a problem? Please either PM one of the site staff members or email firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I want to give some feedback? We welcome feedback and request you submit a topic in the Feedback & Suggestions forum.
