Vanilla 1 and PHP 5.6
For more than 5 years I have been using a discussion forum based on Vanilla 1. Everything has been working splendidly! I have adapted one of the themes with colours and general appearance to fit our particular purpose. I have seen no reason for upgrading to Vanilla 2 - and wouldn't know how to change the appearance of the forum for it to look similar to the present one. However, now our web hotel is upgraded til PHP 5.6. This prevents the forum from being displayed and results in error messages that I am unable to interpret. Does anyone offer any assistance in making the necessary changes in the Vanilla 1 code in order to be compatible with PHP 5.6? I would very much like to continue with the forum we use today without having to upgrade to Vanilla 2 - thus avoiding all the troubles with changing design, functions etc. and the risk of crashing our database (5 years of data!)!
