Major maintenance works have to be done on OpenAndroMaps.org
Usually this is no big deal – you are right
However, OpenAndroMaps is a multilingual website an some plugins (like the Forum!) are not made for multilingual use and even WPML doesn’t support BBPress at all. So these plugins have to be customized again once an update is inevitable.
Another critical factor is the spam and splogger protection of the forum. The plugin I used so far was Wangguard – this service has finally stopped its service without prior notice. So an other spamprotection have to take place and this have to be testet in brief cause this usually will effect user registration of the (customized) BBPress forum plugin.
I will try to make these maintenance as painless as ever possible for you and will perform all tasks on a test environment first.
However, maybe there will be a few issues left.
I would kindly ask you that, if you come across any issue, report it here as comment or in the forum – thanks
Maintenance works will start on 1st of Mai 2017
