As you must have noticed, www.insectnet.comcore site (outside of forum, classifieds and marketplace) is still using a very old code from 1999 made by Clark.
It will soon be replaced by a modern improved version : - mobile responsive, - faster, - https, - more secured. With a modern software (CMS), we will also be able to considerably enrich the content of insectnet.com (blog, video, spreading techniques, breeding techniques, book reviews...)
And as the html coding of the current version is very old, insectnet.com will soon be blocked by some browsers
Good news : the new version is ready. Warning : the transfer from the old to the new version is technically not so easy to do (as insectnet.com is also hosted at a very old and not efficient hosting company (which was good in 1999 but not anymore)).
So I hope the transfer will work smoothly but if you cannot access the core site for few hours or few days, you will know why. I will of course keep you informed in this post.
It works exactly like the previous version but is now more secured and now mobile-responsive. Just one thing to know, when you visit InsectNet on mobile, you need to click on the "blue bars" at the top-right of the screen to display the menu of InsectNet (where you can find links towards the forum, the classifieds, the marketplace and so on).
The architecture and content is the same as before.
We will now be able to enrich it with a lot of useful content (collecting techniques, material and so on).
Super! Now it's easier for me to use, my draconian internet provider and their anti-virus(computer) software would call the old site unsafe and I had to get in through the proboards. When I get my first choice(original) laptop back from the shop, I'll finish working on my caterpillar care tips.
I'm glad you like it Kevin. And as you said, it was a necessary move as InsectNet old site would have very soon been blocked by most browsers.
Browsers. I switched to google chrome a while back, I didn't want to, but- hey "it's new and improved" ok, maybe it is. Unfortunately, my experiences with the new and improved, may differ from yours. A person can look at amateur photography all night, but InsectNet is "unsafe". Sure.
