Software Upgrade

  1. Jun 4, 2008 #1
    We're planning on doing a major software upgrade early next week. The forum could be down for a few hours, not sure what day yet. You won't notice any design changes, but there should be some new features and lots of bugs fixed. On a sad note the chess feature may no longer be compatible so we may have to axe it. Also the blogs may not be compatible. There is an official blog system that we can move to that will import all entries, but I have read there are some problems with it, so no promises. If you have a blog please backup your entries by going to your blog and clicking the "blog tools" dropdown and selecting "download entries". Also the solved threads feature will change to a built in thread prefix feature. Overall this is a big upgrade and prepare for some things to be broken at first. Mainly we have a TON of template edits to do and that just takes time and I may miss some. I'll have more when I am sure what day this will happen.

    Wow! Well change is exciting! So then alot of the work done will be like the behind the scenes stuff, so it may not actually be that noticeable for your day to day user?

    I'll have to find something to do instead of refreshing loads.

    Oh, good, less temptation to be playing here rather than preparing my lecture for Thursday. :biggrin:

    Yes it looks good. What benefits will it have apart from those you listed above?

    Your back hurts? Are you physically moving all the files? :biggrin:

    Let us know when you've finished setting up all the things you know need setting up so we'll know when to start pointing out remaining glitches (I've noticed a few things already, but they may go away on their own as you finish tweaking things).

    The new picture viewer for attached pictures is a real step up. It's a nice upgrade.

    If I look at someone's profile, there's a permanent record of that … at least until six more people do so … I think that's creepy. :yuck:

    Everything seems to be working smoothly. I hope GB's back is better.

    Yes!!

    I often check on people's profiles, for one reason or another … I'd prefer they didn't know … and they'd probably prefer they didn't know! :smile:

    (A record of visits to a blog seems reasonable … but why to the profile?)
