Board Upgrade

Post by higherlimits » Thu Jan 17, 2013 4:52 pm

I just thought I'd let everyone know that I'm going to upgrade the board here in a minute and a lot of the things that you may be used to seeing won't be here for a few days until I get them back. There are a lot of modifications on this site so it might take me a while.. if there's anything missing just let me know so I can fix it.

Good luck Ian.

yeah, board is up, it's just all the damn upgrades aren't. the main one for me is 'view unread posts' at the top of the forum :lol:

We've had a TON of spammers the last few months so I'm hoping this will help that. No one would have noticed them because we have restrictions on posts for new users so only the mods can see them and can delete them and not clutter up the boards.. if you look at the members list for new members though you can see how many there are..

Ugh, my FTP program isn't working properly so I'll have to fix up things later. I added the 'View unread posts' at the top but put it in the wrong spot so I need to fix that.. and like 50 other things..

I actually thought there'd be some bigger issues but some changes didn't revert.. Like in the original board the username and avatar and stuff were all on the right instead of the left and I had to manually change that and had to redo it every upgrade before now. the 'Now Online' banner is still stuck on the right of the post, that's something I was never able to figure out how to fix.

Quick list of things to do:
Add back link to Database
Add back link to store
add donation button
add tapatalk
add image resizer
ban 7th_son
fix email notifications (so that the message is included)
move login back to the top

Nah, you and I may have different view points on many topics but you've never caused me or anyone else any trouble.
Enjoy having you around :-)
