Advisory Notice: Website will be updated soon!

Postby Kurtis » Fri Feb 13, 2015 11:48 pm

hi all;

I thought I'd better embrace you to this because there will be some pretty heavy changes to the site coming soon. The most immediate change will be updating to PHPBB 3.1.*. To you as a user, the main change you'll see is mainly the skin going back to default and certain functionality being removed (such as the 'like' system which has already been removed by a minor update.) I ask you to bare with me whilst I rebuild the website with these updates in mind, and I'll gradually reimplement features that users have requested on an as-when basis (same as I have been doing on this site.)

I'm not so keen on the default prosilver skin but I've found one in the PHPBB website that looks a lot better, so I'll be using that for the short-term. The color-scheme is still the default blue but I'll be changing that to the red theme in due course.

You do get some added benefits, such as 'notifications,' and (by default) you can browse the forum on your mobile devices, which has been a requested feature in the past.

The forum categories will probably undergo a reshuffling as well; the 'history' and 'information exchange' categories will be dissolved and all threads moved into the general category, but I'll also be looking for ways to split up the 'introversion' category into three to five subsections, rather than having everything about 'introversion' in one big section.

I am aware that the site is 'quiet,' I'm thinking about ways of potentially marketing the site a bit more and seeing if we can get more people to join in with due course and get more of a steady flow of people coming in. I'm thinking about means and ways of doing this as we speak.

Just so your privvy to them, if you come on the site one day and find a lot has changed, please don't panic! We are the same website with the same people and same discussions!

In case you are wondering, no threads, posts, users or other information on the site will be deleted with exception to those in the 'site maintenance' section. During the forum reshuffling, most of them will simply be moved into the most related category, with the 'site maintenace' part just being cleared out and new ideas can just be posted on this thread, at least for the immediate future. No other threads, posts or discussions will be removed.

The time-frame for updating to PHPBB3.1 will either be during the weekend or in the course of next week. I'll see what time allows me to do in the meantime.

This concludes the notice regarding the website updates. If you have any ideas, concerns or questions, please feel free to ask.

Yours Faithfully,
Kurtis -

Ah, OK, it's because I used a drug name in the post.

I am having major problems staying logged in from my pc. Mostly the first click after login causes me to be logged out. I am currently using my mobile and could log in.

I am still failing to stay logged in with my regular browser - Firefox - but no problems with Chrome. Weird.

I've truncated the session table (everyone is now logged out), this should solve that problem.

YouTube tag is fixed.

I've lifted the restriction on single quotes for now until I can find a way for automatically removing all but the latest one. For the time being, please try and keep your quotes comparatively clean.
