Pajero Club Website News (Move, Shop etc)

Sat Jun 23, 2012 11:43 am

After much soul searching I have decided to take the plunge and ditch the current Pajero Club website platform, and redevelop it on vBulletin.

I have bought the licences and started on the redevelopment, and am hoping it will be ready towards the end of July. There are some implications for you as members. They're not significant but they will impact you when the time comes. Here is a list of the features of the vBulletin 4 Publishing Suite

In addition, I have decided to revisit the club shop, and launch it properly, now that I have payment gateways sorted. I have had to completely rebuild it because of the decision to change platform. I am hoping to have this completed by next weekend. Those who are waiting to buy stuff at the moment will be informed first and a couple of them will be my guinea pigs :D

So this means a second complete rebuild in 12 months, and hopefully the last for the medium term.

EMAIL ADDRESSES: IMPORTANT!!!

Wed Jun 27, 2012 6:54 am

As part of the move to vBulletin, there is one important thing that needs to be mentioned.

YOUR PASSWORD IS NOT MIGRATABLE!! This is because the encyption algorithms are not the same.

When we migrate you will be able to reset your password but only if your email is valid. So PLEASE make sure your email address on your user profile is current and valid.

I will also be sending a broadcast email. Any addresses that bounce will be advised of this.

I'm planning the migration for the end of July, so there's time
