Gotmead Main site update progress report

Hi all,

I'm sure you're all thinking I've forgotten you, LOL. I have spent the last 7 days working 18 hour days trying to get the main site upgraded from waaaayyyy back level version to a current version of Joomla. And it is progressing, but there is a ton of info, and much of it has to be hand-coded in, so mainly its just time.

I hope to have at least the basics up and running by tomorrow, February 24. I will then continue to add info from the old site into the new site.

Our new site will be *way* better, with social media links, commenting tools, a completely new layout and menu structure so it will be easier to navigate and search, and as I go forward, new toys, tools and ongoing new articles.

When it is ready, I will also be upgrading the forum here (no, you won't lose anything) and bringing it up to the latest/greatest version as well.

I am committing a ton more time going forward to making Gotmead the most dynamic and interesting mead site anywhere.

So concludes the update, I'm back to the salt mines to continue working on the new site!
