Relocation to Secure Web Server
#1
Exclamation 
Kindly note that we have moved our forums over to a secure server on 2017/12/18.  So, if you noticed that you are now being redirected from http://sasams.co.za/forum to https://sa-sams.co.za/forum, that is perfectly normal behaviour.  We are still in a process of making a transition of the landing page at http://sasams.co.za, renovating the website and we will keep you posted as soon as this is done.

In the meantime, all SA-SAMS downloads and Manuals are still fully accessible on the current landing page (http://sasams.co.za), while links on the forum have already been updated to access the downloads directly from the secure server.

Kind regards
Sarel

I am aware that some ill-informed individuals have been spreading rumours on Social Media that this is not the official SA-SAMS Forum. To clarify the matter:

1. Yes, we moved to a secure web server and we changed the domain from http://sasams.co.za to https://sa-sams.co.za

2. Yes, the landing page is not much to look at at the moment and it isn't fully updated. This will change as soon as I have some free time to dabble on that end. If there are any volunteers with good WordPress experience, please step forward if you have time free and would like to assist.

3. I setup a permanent redirect on the http://sasams.co.za domain so that search engine robots (crawlers) can start the process of redirecting to the new URL, which takes time.

4. Yes, I am working on the Search Engine Optimization to get the page rank up.

Hi SarelK,

I'm Masekela and I'm new to the SA-Sams programme and honoured, however is Wordpress skills one the biggest setbacks in updating the system or is there something else because I'm willing to learn Wordpress so to make an immediate refreshment to the forum's welcome page.
Or should I focus my full attention on network configuration? Latency?

Thank you for question and your input, Masakela.

SA-SAMS itself is not built on WordPress.  It is a database-driven solution that currently relies on the installation of the SA-SAMS program, in order to access the database on the back-end.

From the side of our volunteers, it takes effort, dedication and time to juggle various  commitments and the maintenance of the SA-SAMS Public Community and Support Forum, but I believe that much has been done since the previous design of the landing page.  Please feel free to post your suggestions under Website Suggestions.
