Forum and website changes - Asthma UK and moderator message - please read! *update added*

The Asthma UK website and forum boards are being redeveloped due to a website/IT services provider change with the re-launch on April 18. Work will start this Friday 13th to ensure all content is moved over in preparation. So, unfortunately this means all parts of the current website with interaction such as the forums will shut down for four days. Your web accounts will also be ported over, as will all existing forum threads.

  • Message from Webeditor this evening:

    We'll be launching our new website – with a brand new forum – next Thursday. Your web accounts and forum posts will be carried over to the new site. Unfortunately, because that data transfer has to be done in advance of the new site launching, any messages posted on this forum between Friday 13 April and Thursday 19 April will not be carried over to the new site. Feel free to talk as usual, but please note that any threads or posts created during this time will not be on the new site. We apologise for any inconvenience – if you have any questions in the meantime, please email webeditor@asthma.org.uk.

    Thus in summary, the forum will be available in its current form until next Thursday but any posts from tomorrow morning will not be moved.
