As you will have noticed, the forum now looks completely different. This is because I have converted the forum from SMF to IP.Board. I did this because I think IP.Board is a whole lot better. It's smoother, has more features and is much easier to program in. At the moment this is more apparent in the computer version of the site, so if your using iForum, go check it out!

I don't like this mobile theme :(, I want the old mobile theme back
Don't worry, from tomorrow, I will be busily converting the SMF mobile theme, "aqua mobile" too IP.Board. This will take a while, but everything will be back to normal eventually as well as having a slicker forum with more features. Even when I convert the SMF mobile theme, I'll still let you choose the current one too, just incase you like it more.

Bugs and Errors
As I had changed to IP.Board I also had to convert the database, this cuases some problems, so you may find some bugs. Be sure to post them in http://ihackmyi.com/...tions & Support

Help, I'm confused
The first thing to do is have a look at http://ihackmyi.com/...re&module=help. This goes over exactly how to use this forum using simple instructions. If you can't find what your looking for there, post a topic in http://ihackmyi.com/...tions & Support.

A day of posts
I'm afraid we lose the last day of posts. I'm sorry about that, it is because my internet went offline for so many hours. You can all thank virgin media.

Some Terminology...
The forum is now the forums
A board is now a forum
A sticky topic is now a pinned topic

Your free to call them what you wish though :) .

Put the forum on performance mode for now. I might have to upgrade servers. I'll test the server throughout the day. Because we are on performance mode some features are disabled for the time being.

Very nice, I love IPBoard.
Oh, but you need to change a basic user permission. We can't view profiles.
