Hey everyone, this is a new site for TZ, based on the much more modern xenforo platform.

Kunena has done ok for us, but you do get what you pay for, and its a little long in the tooth and lacking in features.
I attempted various ways to import the old site to this, so that all the users, posts, threads and so on carried over.

But there was nothing out there I could get to work, and was quoted $1400 USD by cms2cms to do it... and the reviews arent so great, i think it wouldve ended up messy and problematic.

So I decided to start new with a fresh install of xenforo, and need everyone to sign up again here fresh. I can add users myself but its probably easier if you guys just register here with your preferred email and password.

I will be bringing the threads and posts over manually over time. I can also change everyones 'join date' to the original join date on the original site.

In the meantime, the old site will be left up and I will be changing it to read only eventually.

We can start new threads here about the current issues and topics, preferrably with the same or similar titles. When I transfer the older posts over I can merge the threads.

I know that not everyone will be happy about this, and in some ways its unsettling... but I think soon enough you will all find xenforo easier to use, and appreciate the notification feature, as well as other features that the old forum software does not support.

Any questions let me know in this thread. I created this category just for the site move, new threads in this category will have to be approved, if you must start a new thread rather than reply to this one, keep it on topic about the site changes.

Some of the features of xenforo include a good ignore feature, the ability to tag members , just put the @ in front of a users name, for example @novum

All your notifications will show on the one bell icon whether it be likes, replies, tags, and the rest.

Xenforo works MUCH better on phones also, something which was problematic with the old site.

There will be teething problems no doubt but i think we need to do this now rather than go even deeper with the old kunena.

Obviously the URL of this new site is https://new.truth-zone.net .... once some time has passed I will change that to truth-zone.net , and put something infront of the old forum to indicate its not the current forum. We will all still be able to read and access it, log in, search, everything. But I will turn posting off there at some point so we arent posting on 2 different forums.

OK guys so I have flicked the switch regarding the domains.

This new site is now truth-zone.net

The original site has a new prefix called 'legacy'

So its accessible via this URL

https://legacy.truth-zone.net

https://legacy.truth-zone.net/forum.html

I have not turned that forum off yet in regards to ability to post, I will do that soon and will let people know.

Id prefer people post here from now on if possible, and if one wants to continue a thread from there just start a new one with the same name.. i can merge them later when threads/posts from there are brought over.

Expect some weirdness with the web addresses working right because the changes I just made have to propagate across the interwebs and it usually takes 24hrs or so to all come good.

I have strong immunity and take my D3 tablets. I haven't taken vaccinations for covid.
Are you one of those who denies that the virus exists?
