The developers have finished beta testing the new software, and is now available for pre-testing with our own data/conversion. We will be doing that over the next couple weeks.

At some point soon, we will be turning off access to TAPATALK. TAPATALK is the third party program we have been using, so mobile users can access FC with an APP.

The new software will have a built in app available, so TAPATALK becomes unnecessary. (you can access it with a web browser, too, and it is much friendlier for web browsers)

If you use Tapatalk, please take note.

Thanks

When we convert this month, we are moving to a different brand of forum software. Your member record and all previous posts will convert, and everything will be in a very similar layout.

You will have to SIGN IN the first time you visit, after the conversion. Once you do, a cookie can remember your information for future visits.

With the new software, you will be able to sign in with your FIRST & LAST NAME (the same user name you have now), or by the email address used previously. (plus the password)

Please make a note of your user name now, so you'll have this info handy. You will see it on the top right, "Welcome, XXXXX XXXXXXX"
Note that some folks have certification designations as part of their user name, so you'll need to know that as well. Ex: Jane Doe vs Jane Doe, CPF

If you find that you can't remember your password, there will be a link on the sign in screen to reset the password and have a new one emailed.

The forum support team is always available to help, if you have any trouble signing in.
