Server migration and new board

Postby Ghostface on Sat Jan 02, 2010 10:08 pm

Update: Migration done.

------

Hey guys,

Soon I am going to migrate the site to a new server, and in the process will also switch to phpBB3.

This means that some stuff will prolly not get ported over (the shop and maybe the blood for example).

All accounts, threads and posts will (hopefully) stay intact tho.

The board/site will also be unavailable for a short period of time, I will announce when exactly this is happening, but just in case - don't be alarmed if something is down or not available :)

Alright, migration is pretty much complete so far - new server, new board.
As you can see we are now running phpBB3, so don't be afraid of the new look (I couldn't port over the old style so I adapted a new one :) ).

If there's anything broken/missing you don't like feel free to report it and I will have a look.

There could/might be an issue for people with wierd passwords, in case you can't login, just use the retrieve lost password functionality or contact me.

Enjoy!

Alright sorry about the bbcodes - This only affected the news forum since it has some special permissions.
It should work now.

As for the profile link, clicking on the username gets me to the profile ?

The Corner thing and the online tag/quote overlap I will look into.

you can see your profile but you can't change anything, as for as I can tell.
I can't find the profile settings page

You should have a "User Control Panel" Link on the top of the page - here you can change your profile and settings and everything related to your account.

Btw. I adjusted the placement of the icons so it doesn't overlap the online tag anymore - let me know if there are any probs in other browsers (I only tried it in FF and konqueror).

I hate getting used to new layouts. But at least it went smooth.

Yeah, I am sorry but switching to the phpBB3 was necessary due to security issues with the old version. And since the old layout wasn't ported to phpBB3 I had to base it on a new one.

I will fix the avatars soon, just want to do some nos deving in between so that's why board fixes happen in steps :)
