Dave Kile copy The site has just been upgraded to offer many improvements. It is still under construction, but we are back open for business.

The old Paflyfish forum was based on a platform called XOOPS and was a critical step for the website sixteen years ago. The XOOPS platform had not kept up with contemporary Internet protocols, security standards, SEO search engines, mobile user access and many other important features. I have migrated to a new forum platform based on Zenforo with the plan on improving our fly fishing community.

The new forum will provide all the new features that is needed as well as maintaining pretty much all the old features you have been familiar with over the years. The new forum will offer better community access and convenience to all the old information too.

If you are new to the site, new user registration is back on and available in the upper right corner of the site menu bar. We look forward to you joining our fly fishing community.

New Functionality
Mobile Access - designed to work with smartphones and tablets
Security - Secure SSL access, a secure certificate for the site, hChapta for new secure user registration, advance blocking for bots and spammers
Unlimited file storage - We can add more and larger images to posts
Pictures - easy to drag and drop images and no codes

What’s next?
The site has been migrated with the goal of getting us back to functioning forums as quickly as possible. The look and feel is a little raw right now and I’ll be cleaning things up with a new theme. But, the first steps will be to answer questions, fix any glitches, adjust the preferences and get back to a normal functioning site.

There will be issues and I will likely not know all the answers. Please be patient as there are many new features. Let’s use the forum to ask questions and share answers in the Site and Forum Comments.

As Maurice told me, there will be some pieces left on the ground after the move and I’ll have to take a little time picking them back up the following weeks.

Thanks for being part of Paflyfish,
