Making Progress.

Written code to import MSAccess data into MySQL. Lot of records.

Written pages to display forums, topics and posts. Fortunately the forum stored the posts in a HTML format, but a few custom fields like CODE will need work to display like they did in the old forum. Images and attachments are displayed and linked correctly.

Added paging, 20 posts per page. This is important as many posts refer to other posts on page X.

Added code to let member log in.

Added code to reset password. Every member will need to do this. Creates a new password using 10 random characters and emails this to member using their email address from records. Member can then log in and change password ( not written yet ). Passwords are HASH'd, so no way to see what they were.Edited by Gizmo 2019-07-08
