please explain what the problem with the old database it. it is rare for a database to be so bad that you can't fix it.
The original problem was that no one could post or send PMs. It kept taking us back to the login page. We did try a few things with the help of these forums, including the cookie settings, but had to give up.
I have now rebuilt the forums but was hoping to save having to ask remaining members to re-register. Apart from not sending any email notification for anything at all, the new forums are now all working well. I have raised this in a new thread.
