We’ve just completed the move to a new server. Its been a nail-biting few days because the IT tech guy I hired did not do the job properly, and so I had to do it all by myself, with a bit of guesswork here and there, and much uploading and deleting of files and databases.
It looks like the migration has gone well, with only the latest posts of the past few days missing, I think, including my post announcing the site will be down.
For the members’ whose recent posts might not have been backed up and restored properly, I apologise and request that you make the posts again.
Thanks everyone for your patience and accommodation. I hope this new server will serve the site well and quickly too.
As always, please post in the feedback section if you spot anything amiss or have suggestions to improve the site, our community.

If you checked into the site and thought the homepage looks weird and suspect it may have been hacked into and defaced, don’t worry – I’m just playing around with some new themes to see which is the best to use to showcase the forum posts.
In fact, I have been looking at dozens of pre-designed themes but none seem to suit the site’s specifications, and so I have invested in a software to design and build my own custom theme!
While I’m learning this new software and trying out the various features, I will be switching back and forth between the test theme and the regular ‘safe’ theme.
One of the challenges is that nowadays, more and more people are using tablets and smart phones to access the site, and so the theme needs to be able to fit and display properly on many different types of screens.
Thank you for your patience! 🙂

Hi folks, the site has been experiencing a number of technical issues and I am still looking into it, and also bringing in some technical help.
Over the next few days, some portions of the site may not work as before as we disable some plugins and functions to try to isolate the causes of the technical issues. The site may even go offline for a while.
I am alerting you to these developments so you are not too alarmed or concerned if the site looks or behaves differently in the next few days. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. These gremlins are truly annoying but I hope to flush them out soon, forever!
I was also informed that there are currently 23,378 emails queue for delivery in the server. As I am not sending out any emails or newsletters, I suspect the email server may have been hijacked or compromised.
If you receive, or have received, any emails from ehangar.com that seems suspicious, please let me know.

I have managed to find out what was causing the problem where members were unable to reply to posts or add new topics to the forum.
The culprit was the site theme and so I have swapped it to a basic theme. It may not look very pretty, but the forum works again.
My apologies for the breakdown. Let’s get back to sharing aviation art again! 🙂
