    Q why is mumbai hikers changing their platform?

    Answer :- Since april 2019 we have been having problems with our mumbaihikers.com site software. The site runs on boonex.com dolphin software  and used to work great for the past 10 years. boonex.com has now decided to focus on unity and not dolphin.

    Software Problems

    After some updates to mumbaihkiers.com the code started to give errors on 16th may the site crashed. So we had to do a site restore and the only restore which worked was from 30th april 2019. This made a lot of trek leaders lose their events.After 4 days we decided we should move to a new platform .we have been using wordpress for mumbaihikers.net and we have many many sites with wordpress.

    Memory and Platform cost

    mumbaihikers dolphin took a lot of resources and for which we had to make it a paid site.

    Other Reasons

    we also found we had to reject a lot of trek groups who were tour group or groups who could not/did not want to pay the membership free.

    We ran mumbaihikers.org free for the past 10 years . But it was not meant for posting events as it runs on blogger.it was very difficult to find weekly events on mumbaihikers.org. mumbaihikers.net was to share pure trekking related information.

    https://events.mumbaihikers.com has the capiblity of being a free community and also an event managerment site. We paid for the event plugin so it gives trekkers weekly and daily event lists and also allows trek leaders to post recurring events only .(on dolphin trekkers has to post recurring events for each week manually)
