I'm having no success accessing the BCA website this morning. I suppose everybody trying to pay their subs has blown it away!

The UKCaving Wiki issue is probably due to a PHP version update, which might be why UKCaving was offline for maintenance recently?

The BCA website outage this morning is a recurring issue that the IT Group are troubleshooting.

Sorry, working on it. It's been a very busy few weeks for me.

It's not working for me, going through the clubs websites and updating the links and this was one of them, so if it's been down for over a year does that mean this is now defunct and I should remove the link or has it changed?

It seems to have missed out on a maintenance upgrade. It's failing to find the mysql_pconnect() PHP function, which was deprecated in PHP 5.5 and removed from PHP 7.0. The PHP software has obviously been upgraded on the site recently, but not the wiki.

I suspect that the wiki is not integrated into the Simple Machines Forum software, and needs to be maintained separately.
