    Default NAFEX is back online!- Questions answered- bug report

    First, I want to say thank you for all of those who have emailed me and/or called me to make sure all was ok with me. Your support means so much to me. I never knew how many friends I actually had . Thank you again for your kind words and support.

    Second, So here is the story, NAFEX was hacked and when I mean hacked it was hacked like the Russian's were in on it. ( sorry no more political jokes). The hack was done on the database which I have zero control over. It was on the server side. At the same time the hack happened the server decided it was no longer going to be in business. So not only was I screwed I was literally so screwed. To make a long story short it has taken this long and countless hours and money to get the site back up and running. I could have just said screw it and started fresh but there was too much information contained on the old forum to throw my hands up, and believe me I wanted to so many times. I kept running into road block after road block. This has been the most frustrating process and lessons learned for me. I just don't understand why people are so evil and want to do this kind of things?

    What does this all mean? NAFEX information has been saved and is all here, I couldn't be happier. It also means she has gotten a face lift. I will be adding more items and functions as time goes on. So please be patient with me and continue to work with me on getting NAFEX back to where it was. The new software will be quicker and will help so this doesn't happen again. I also have a better hosting company that will make sure all of this information is now protected with daily backups.

    Please post in this thread if you see any bugs or problems. If the forum is down it means I am adding more items. Please don't get frustrated, I am a one man operation and I can't even believe the content is still here. Just be patient and it will get done.

    Thanks again for everyones support.

    Happy hawking,

    Chris

    Thank you Chris sooooo much! So many have learned the value of your forum and what a void the absence brings. Welcome back....

    Not a bug report, but thanks for all of your hard work. I'm definitely happy that it's back up!

    *Edit* is there a way to see recent posts like the old page's home page? Or is it necessary to click "new posts" every time?

    Thank you all for being patient with me. I wish it was just a flip of a switch to get it back on. She was a mess for sure.

    Thank you Jenni and Ken for helping to answer some of the questions on Facebook. I don't do that Facebook thang so I was out of the loop...

    I think its all here and saved. Keep me posted as you all click around

    Awesome Chris not having nafex made being bored a lot more boring. One question though. Do we still have to go outside the forum to post pictures

    This button will facilitate a pic from your computer/device. My favorite thing of the update so far

    Once you select the photo from the phone, what's next? The URL tab has "OK" and "Cancel." The computer tab didn't have an option to finish the process...

    This "upload file" is a clickable 'button'

    Chris...you are amazing Facebook is great for posting something you really don't care about, and getting a quick response, but NAFEX is where you can go to find real information in all the archives, along with all the real time people. Thank you for putting so much into this!
