Re: NEC Classic Car & Restoration Show 27-29 March 2020

re-free hosting...... If this site is on a cPanel server, it takes about 5 minutes! As TLF are on a dedicated server they have the level above cPanel which is WHM (web host manager) and it has a transfer tool built in. If not, then it needs to be a back up and restoration, which takes about an hour!...

Re: NEC Classic Car & Restoration Show 27-29 March 2020

Re: Polybush, New Source.

(which as mentioned are not available anymore due to their chemical composition) the ones Ive fitted are oversized and 'glued' over sized in the fact that the steel centre tu...

Re: The Future of the Club

if you wish to see an example can I just say that www.lotuselancentral.com is also hosted by TLF and was just migrated over to the same server...... it is very very similar to this site........... they have their own maintenance/storage/moderation.....and are completely separate from TLF self fundin...

Re: The Future of the Club

You are just trying to explain to me that by providing webspace there is no need for any forum subs? Which *could* mean that the Lotus Excel forum can revert to its previous informal format? Peter Yes....that's it pretty much..... As for moderation........erm ......I think that is for the more seni...

Re: The Future of the Club

my view......and only my view.......
we go with the free hosting.....by TLF....as its free and does not 'swallow' this forum up
we give donations rather than a fee to a nominated account/treasurer

other than that the forum continues as is

Re: The Future of the Club

should you require assurance as to the nature of the offer of free web space feel fee to ask Mike Kimberley his thoughts on 'thelotusforums' as well as 'LotusElanCentral'.....Im 100% certain it will put your minds at rest...... LotusExcel.net would still be a singular entity but together with many o...
