      Forum upgrade   12/10/17

      Hi everyone, As you're probably aware, we've been in the process of upgrading the Caravan Talk forum software for a while. I can now confirm that the software has been upgraded and we're fully up to date. Please note that this new software is quite different in appearance and function, so may require a bit of relearning. We are in the process of refining the look, features and experience to make it a bit better and more familiar. If you spot any issues please let us know in the feedback forum. Unfortunately any posts between Monday morning and now have been lost. This is due to when the database snapshot was taken for the upgrade, this may also affect new members since then. We do apologise for this, but we have tried to keep disruption to a minimum. We are already aware and working on the following issues: PayPal payment issues for CT Supporters Forum design, lack of CT branding including colours Temporary loss of reviews databases Navigation bar needs refining We will keep this list up to date, so please check here before posting new updates, or to keep on tabs of our progress. The software was upgraded in order to provide you with a more secure, reliable, faster experience, whilst providing us with more tools to improve the features and options for the forum. Thank you for your continued support. Ben and the CT Team

    Here you go:
  2. Yes, the reviews databases are still being worked on, apologies for the inconvenience!
  3. First PostOn New Upgrade....

    Glad to hear it, the new image posting is so much better! Have a great weekend.
  4. The tickets will be available for all winners on the door! Sorry for the delay, the person from the NCC's team who was going to contact you has been off sick and the message got missed. Those named all have won and the tickets will be available from the press office on the day. Hopefully they will be in touch directly, if they haven't already. ..
  5. Hi folks, I've sent all of your contacts over to the NCC. They should be in touch with you soon to sort out the tickets!
  6. Very sorry to hear about John, very knowledgeable and friendly chap. Very well respected amongst the industry and through his publications. I know the mod team all looked up to him and his thoughtful advice.
  7. Caravan Talk

    Despite being responsible for Caravan Talk, I've no issue with putting my name or picture on here Have met a couple of people out and about who've recognised me as I run past a local campsite. Always happy to stop and chat and, as on the forum, take a bit of feedback, whether good or bad (almost always good though). I don't think the majority know that Caravan Talk has been built almost entirely on member feedback and is completely independent. The caravanners make this club and have a lot more say in it's running than some can believe. As for the size of this little club, although we only have 44,000 registered members, and less active posters, we saw 370,000 visits in July this year. Like most forums, if you consider our readers to be our members as well (much as any magazine would), then we're at least 250,000 strong, but probably a lot more than that! I wouldn't advertise my address or anything silly like that, but I'm also happy for people to actually meet me in real life, so if you see someone running past a particular campsite that looks like my pic then say hello. At the worst, you'll look a bit daft (and don't we all at some point)
  8. Caravan Club

    Hi David, Sorry to hear that, we've subdivided the forum to try and ensure that every topic has an appropriate place for it to sit, so that members can find what they're looking for in the 1+ million posts on the forum. Admittedly it does mean there are a lot of sub-sections, but that's just a by-product of a busy and structured forum If you don't view a particular set of forums, you can hide and reveal the categories on the home page via the - & + signs on the far right of the category names! As for the offensive postings, there aren't many cases of this these days, and if any are spotted we'd encourage members to report the content so that the mod team can review the offending posts and, if necessary, take action.
  9. Caravanmedic Dorset

    Good suggestion, I've updated the title of the thread. If another Dorset franchisee starts feel free to invite him onto the forum to become a Trade member like yourself
  10. Hello From Italy

    Ciao Marco, come stai? I was in Italy, though a bit further South, in August (and also in Spring). Fab country, hope you enjoy your holiday to the UK!
  11. Caravan Talk Sticker

    I think we still have a few, we've set it to 0 stock just so we don't have to force you to buy a £0 sticker o. 0 Send a SAE and we'll find out the last few
  12. Bad Back Col

    Good news, glad to hear it Feel free to give him a (virtual) nudge in the ribs to pop back in here from time to time.
  13. Sadly yes, we'd love to be there but we've been so busy this year we couldn't make the time to do it justice. .. Sorry to hear you've had to cancel the holiday, will keep fingers crossed for you that everything turns out OK. Obviously don't watch enough Top Gear. .. http://youtu. be/dJfSS0ZXYdo?t=5m26s
  14. Not this time, though we'll be there in spirit (and possibly as press)! Are you going?
  15. Former F1 World Champion, and British motorsport royalty, Nigel Mansell, and renowned TV broadcaster Fiona Bruce, will officially open the Motorhome & Caravan Show on Tuesday 14th October at Birmingham’s NEC. Famous for his love of racing, Nigel is also a passionate caravanner. Along with guest of The Caravan Club, Fiona Bruce, Nigel will be opening the event and he will be speaking in the Show’s Experts’ Theatre about his career and caravanning experiences – no doubt along with sharing his opinion on Lewis Hamilton’s chances of winning the current Formula One World Championship. More than 400 exhibitors, including all the major UK and European manufacturers, will be at the Show from 14th – 19th October. Thousands of visitors will attend the event, and millions of pounds worth of sales are expected over the six days. Nigel is the only driver in history to win both the Formula One and the Indy Car World Series in successive seasons, yet away from these exploits his family has enjoyed caravan holidays for more than 20 years. Nigel says: “I have enjoyed caravan holidays for decades, and continue to do so. My family and I enjoy the freedom that comes with caravanning, and we’ve regularly visited Wales over the years to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. “It’s amazing to see how far the industry has developed in recent years, there are some great looking vehicles out there that are more technologically advanced than ever. I’m delighted to open the show and will no doubt be browsing the new models myself!” Visitors can also see journalist and presenter, Fiona Bruce, throughout the opening day, which is also Caravan Club Day, as following her joint Show opening she will be at The Caravan Club’s Lounge (20. 79), hosting a set of forums and interactive sessions. Well known for her love of the outdoors, The Camping and Caravanning Club President, Julia Bradbury, will be at the Show too, on ‘Friendly Friday’ -­‐ Friday 17th October, on stand (8. 10). The Motorhome & Caravan Show is the UK’s only national event for the motorhome and caravan industry where all the major manufacturers launch their exciting new 2015 models hot off the production line. The Show fills 11 giant halls at the NEC and in 2013 more than 100,000 people from across the UK visited. This year hundreds of products will be on sale, many at Show only prices, for people to buy and browse, including caravans, motorhomes, campervans, trailer tents and folding caravans, luxury lodges and caravan holiday homes, not to mention thousands of outdoor accessories, gadgets and campsite and destination ideas. The Motorhome & Caravan Show 2014 is on from the 14 – 19 October and tickets are still on sale at special advance prices from just £7*. Booking in advance means beating the queues and saving money. On-­‐the-­‐door tickets cost £9 for Seniors (60 years +) and £10 for Adults, with children under 15 years admitted for free. All tickets include parking and a Show Guide (subject to availability).
