    The fantastic StreetBees are now advertising with us.


    This company have been involved with The Money Shed since they first started releasing tasks in the UK as we helped them keep their clients happy and provide excellent work for them.

    Just had to restore the forum database to 4am this morning to fix a critical few issues so any posts from this morning have sadly been lost.

    Matched Betting now has it own subforum as the various threads on it were just bleeding all over the forum.

    From now on, mods and myself will make sure all MBing threads get kept in the MBing subforum

    I've had a torrid time this weekend with The Money Shed

    Migration to the cloud happened yesterday morning as we had a few issues post move with that and I've also just made the forum SSL secure.

    What is SSL you may ask?

    SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.

    You should now see a padlock at the top of your browser when you use TMS and instead of http://www.themoneyshed.co.uk it is now https://www.themoneyshed.co.uk

    I will be doing the same on the blog side as well in due course

    The Money Shed Blog was hacked today and if you tried to use it this morning at all without adblocker on you would have seen 100 odd popups appear as soon as you clicked on any link.

    I've ended up paying a security firm to come in and remove and clean the malware that was installed and causing this and the issue is now RESOLVED.

    The forum fell to its knees last night and I was unable to take a look at it until this morning as we had no Internet at home (Bad timing eh!)

    The good news was that the database was still intact so all 90,000+ posts plus members plus whatever else were still there the bad news was that I had to do a FRESH INSTALL of the forum software and then push on with any tweaks or mods that I had before and needed to get up and running.

    Long of short of it is that everything back up and working now so sorry again for anyone that tried to access TMS Forum last night and this morning and couldn't.

    The Money Shed will be migrating to brand new forum software tomorrow (21st April 2017) unless something goes drastically wrong with my testing tonight

    In the morning the site will go down and will eventually come back up and will then require a very comprehensive list of tweaks before things will all be in a workable state.

    As times goes on the sites features and functionality will increase however from the get go things like @mentions and Likes etc are all there and working as is a VERY good mobile responsive side for those of you who access TMS on the go!

    1 thing you need to be made aware of is that you WILL need to redo the links again in your signature as they will be there but won't be clickable

    If the absolute worst happens and something goes wrong with the database migration etc then I will roll back to the previous days EXISTING forum software.

    I have removed the 'Services for Hire / Rent' section from the forum.

    A lot of the information I feel was outdated and not of massive use to our community or people who would use the site.

    I have also transferred the content from the January Bootcamp into the main 'Earn Money Online' section as the successful Bootcamp is well and truly over now

    I am generally looking at trying to prune the forum somewhat as there are a number of new ideas I want to bring into play in the coming weeks and months.

    Sorry about speed issues on here over the last 12 or so hours.

    Had some database issues which have now been resolved so everything should be back up and working again

    I've turned on a feature that allows you to now LOGIN to The Money Shed through your Twitter or Facebook account and also new users can sign up using their existing social media accounts.

    If you are an existing user and go to use it it will tell you to login to TMS first and then takes you to the page where you can associate your TMS login with your social media login.

    If you get lost you can go into your profile and select External Accounts and link them up

    You will then be able to both link your accounts and deactivate them if you want

    Hopefully this will make it easier for you to sign into TMS if you are already logged into Facebook or Twitter

    A lot of peoples Date Of Birth appears to have changed when we came over to the new forum software.

    If you want yours changing back to what it should be just drop me a PM with the date and I can sort it out for you ;)

    Just to warn you I'm doing an upgrade on the forum software this afternoon so it may go down for a while as that takes place

    Look like the site has come out the other side OK and we are now running the latest version of Xenforo which is 1.5.14

    For those that were with us when we moved over to this software from the Simple Machines Forum and had the wrong date of birth after the migration you will be pleased to know one of the fixes is

    • Adjust birth date importing from SMF and process attachment tags to our format.
    lol

    I've been working on some of the navigation options on the forum today.

    It's now easier than ever to get to the part of the forum you want using our new navigation tabs at the top

    You will see new menus for Mobile Phone Apps, Web Search Evaluator Work, Website Test
    When you click on the drop down option next to them you will see something like this

    [​IMG]

    Which when you click on will take you straight to that dedicated thread for that way of earning money!

    This functionality is ONLY available on the desktop version of the site
