But every time I post over the last couple of days it goes to a Defence talk having database problems, I tried to past a copy of what it was doing but would not let me copy and paste. But when I go back and press submit again it says it is a duplicate post then goes back to the thread.

Not sure if I have explained myself properly.

We maybe moving to new (upgraded) server soon (different datacenter location too, who knows?), don't know any dates yet.

With that, new website look and I might upgrade the forum too (and gallery), to vb5 or migrate to IPB or some other better and cheaper option.

Anyone have experience with IPB or Xenforo? Looking for user feedback, you may have seen these on other forums you frequent?

vbulletin5 is too buggy and very expensive so I am considering my options.

Folks,

DefenceTalk switched to HTTPS/SSL. If you notice any errors or 404 pages, please let me know!

In case of issues, make sure you clear your browser cache, and/or restart your computer if you can.

thanks
