You may have noticed that the Discussion Forum previously placed in the right-hand column of the homepage has been taken down. This was always loaded up for an initial trial period and although it proved popular it also transpires that after an initial period that the developer had included a series of adverts that appeared at the top of the forum.
I am totally against overt advertising on the website and this was particularly 'in your face' advertising so it had to go. I could have paid for an advert-free version but at £11 per month (£132 a year) this is over the top for what is on offer. I will continue to look around for a better advert-free and free of charge (or cheap) Discussion Forum software to add to the website in the future.
