Xenforo Transition

After about a year of planning, preparation, and testing, the Greater Iowa Reef Society forum will be making the move to Xenforo!

As of 3/31/2015, the conversion is not complete - the conversion company is still working on the final product.

If you are reading this, that means the transition has not happened yet.  You will notice when it has!

The final bugs in the conversion process are currently being worked through.  This process has taken a bit longer than expected, but the change should be happening soon.

The current site will remain open until the new site is online, but registrations have been disabled.

If you are new to GIRS and don't have an account, please send an e-mail to and I will put you on a list and notify you directly when the new site is online and open for new registrations.

In the meantime, you can watch some of the orientation videos I have put together in this thread:

Thanks to all that have helped, and thanks for your patience!
