As you may have noticed, the UK MCA forums, which used to use a software product called phpBB, have been moved to a Joomla! extension called Kunena (from a Swahili word meaning, "to speak"). This should provide a much better level of integration with the website. for example, viewing a forum page is now the same as viewing any other website page, with the same navigation menu and photo slideshow. Logging into the website and logging into the forum are now the same thing.
At the moment, only those who contribute news articles to the website have accounts. Accounts will be created over the next few months for UK MCA MEMBERS who want to post to the forums. See the Forum "Rules" tab for details of how to apply for an account.
