Site Upgrade - Finally!


Recommended Posts

It's been a long time coming, but we are finally here! 

There are a lot of changes - in fact everything has changed; the forum software, the web server we're using, the server infrastructure in general, even our hosts. 

I understand that generally no one likes change, but do I hope the overall experience on this new site will be much better than the old. Things might still need tweaking so please bear with us if anything isn't right. If you're having login problems then please use the contact us option.

And with that said, it's time for me to press the unlock button now and let you all in. Have fun!

There are a few niggles I still need to sort out.

Embedded images have been converted to urls, I can see the setting which caused that but changing it doesn't fix the existing data so I'm awaiting a response from the forum devs about how to proceeded with that.

We also had an issue during the upgrade where the last two weeks of posts didn't get converted across. This is exactly what happened the last time I abandoned the upgrade but this time I was able to identify those posts missing and write a script to bring them across. Unfortunately that script wasn't able to parse the posts like the forum does, so things likes images and quotes in those posts look out-of-place with everything else. But I'm hoping anything suggested to fix the previous embedded image issue will also fix this.

I'll ask Pete to help resovle the iPhone issue as I don't own one and so cant test it.

Also, for those preferring a less bright forum, you can't pick the Bravo6 theme from the dropdown menu at the very bottom of this page.
