June 2017 Website Updates

Jun 30, 2017 - MoreCompetency Inc announces June 2017 website training and help resource updates

June 2017 Website Updates

The Framework Release 7 for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 was released at the very end of May.

Release 7 Framework products now support AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018

Website Move and Site SSL Conversion

  • We moved the website to a new hosting provider early in June.
    We also completed our conversion to SSL and the more secure https protocol.
    You should get niffty padlock symbols in all reasonably current browsers.
  • You should experience better performance on all pages, but we continue to work to improve that.
    We tested and got a significant performance boost in the first couple of days.
  • Your connections to the site whether you login or not are certainly more secure.
  • The site no longer supports old versions of IE earlier than IE 10.

Known Site Move Issues

  • For a few days we manually authorized website registrations.
    Automated Site registration email confirmation has been restored.
    If you tried to register and failed to gain access, please let us know.
  • We had a few broken links, but all the known ones have been updated.
  • We had a few reported email bounce back errors after the site move which we believe have all been resolved.
