Site Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I'll try to keep it as short as possible. :) 

I've just completed our very long overdue upgrade that has been waiting for the best part of two years. At the same time, we've moved server to something newer and lighter.

The good news - things are faster, better on mobile, easier to upgrade in future, and a hell of a lot easier to use and post in.

As with most things, there is a bit of bad news though - we don't have any of our themes, customisations, and various other little bits like that which you may have got used to. There are also a few bugs like missing icons for flags and little bits like that. I'm working on these though, so things will slowly come back to what you would expect from the site in the coming days.

Still, there is a little bit more good news - now we have this new framework in place, we're working towards our upgrade and content systems for FM 2017. More on that soon once we've finalised a few things our end.

Any questions, comments, bugs, just let me know in this thread. :up:

Can you send me a link to that post so I can investigate on the old site as well? Thanks. :)

Ok, I'm not sure how familiar you are with charsets, but something appears to have gone wrong with the upgrade. I've submitted a ticket to the software provider for support. :)

Haven't personally came across any issues yet, but will report any I find. Looking good though, and the newer version adds some nice stuff, and looks nicer, and I'm sure even more so as ad when you guys get a skin sorted :)

Well it ain't anything wrong but how to you hide the sidebar down the RHS of the board? I know there was a knob on the old one to do it but I can't find it on this version.

That functionality was removed with IPB4. No way to add it back either. :(

It's change and therefore I don't like it.

Just went to edit my CG thread and there a load of bugs in there. Lots of random letters scattered where there shouldn't be. When I got a bit more energy I'll just walk through and delete them.

Good job, Putz. Haven't spotted anything funky yet, but I'll be sure to let you know if I do!

Looks real nice now though :)

Yeah, the scattered letters etc might be a bug. Waiting on IPS to get back to me about that before concluding. :)

 

We'll have a proper new skin over the next couple of days.

This should be fixed soon. :)

If you PM me what your name should be, I can get it changed now if you like?

Good job Putz. Considering the magnitude of the job and the fact that none of the other staff can really do owt to help (I don't think) then you have performed magnificently.

We could always remove those blocks for the time being?

Why? I like the blocks. :P

 

Nah, I'll get a hide/show implemented somehow. Can't be too hard. (I might live to regret those words)
