ImAFish X

By Pete | @kingpetey | 27 Nov 2006

Welcome to ImAFish X - or the 10th version of our popular community. ImAFish has gone through its biggest makeover ever! Planning started in August and a huge amount of work has been put in to get us to this stage.

ImAFish is a mash up of open source systems and scripts as well as a few specifically written modules.

As it is now ImAFish uses the following components:

Forum - Our forum hasn't changed in 4 years now, its still on a modded version of PHPBB 2.

Blog/Articles - Our two main content areas are powered by Wordpress we have been using it over a year now and there is no better blogging platform.

Home/Media - All the other pages of the site are now powered by Drupal. Up to ImAFish 9 the majority of the pages were powered by our own content management system but since Drupal can provide features at a rate that far proceeds our own development speeds it seemed an obvious choice.

Hosting - Our hosts Switchweb have been very accommodating to our growth as usual.
Without the huge contributions people put into these open source scripts ImAFish wouldn't be as popular and successful as it is today.

There may be a few teething problems however these should be fixed over the next couple of weeks. A few areas may still be on ImAFish 9 however they should be migrated soon.

A big thanks to all our supporters over the last 10 versions and 5 years.
