Tapatalk, the new owners of My Free Forum, are trying to migrate the database to a new platform. You might be experiencing problems accessing the site, or posting.

Looks like they're trying to fix the automatic notification system now and have created an error. If you try to post a message and get an error about the emailer, your message probably posted to the forum successfully. Please copy your message text and check to see if the post went through before trying again. Otherwise duplicate posts might result.

The forum has now been migrated to the Tapatalk phpBB3 platform. Please let me know of any issues or problems you encounter. Thanks.

This will take some getting used to.

What software is the Mt. San Jacinto board using?  It looks more like the old MyFreeForum than tapatalk. If there is a cost, I think contributions could be raised to cover it.

You used HTML tags, right? That might be the issue. HTML tags might be disabled somewhere. I'll look into it. I also posted about this problem on the Support forum in this thread.

I believe they migrated to phpBB3, but are hosting the forum themselves and therefore have full control over the design. To do that requires money, skills, and time. All of which we probably have. But let's discuss that concern in the other forum. This topic is for specific problems with the new platform.

It takes a little getting used to. But I think the file attaching feature is an improvement on what we had before. You don't have to worry about resizing, for example.

So what is to become of the awesome slideshow that you spent so much time and effort on?

I don't know yet. We might have to pay a fee to gain control of the main page design.
