Site Maintenance
The forums will be going down for maintenance on Sunday June 12th, for some much-needed software upgrades.

If all goes well, the downtime will be less than an hour.

RE: Site Maintenance
We're back, but there are some formatting / layout glitches with the updated forum software.

So please bear with us while we are fixing these little glitches.

Cheers!

RE: Site Maintenance
I *think* we're all good now. The bit at the top that starts with "User CP" and ends with "Private Messages" was all changed around and I don't remember what it looked like before. It's readable now but I'm not quite happy with it.

We'll have to see if there's some ways to improve it in the future.

RE: Site Maintenance
Today we figured out that new user registrations was broken in the upgrade yesterday. It's been fixed now.

It seems that a bunch of 'theme' stuff was changed so significantly that old-version themes aren't expected to work on the new version software.

Over the next few days or so I'll continue to poke at it to resolve the stuff that was flagged. (There's about 30 template items that were identified as potentially having issues.)

Apart from the registration page, what I've seen so far is mostly cosmetic and I haven't stumbled across anything else seriously broken, but if anyone does, please let us know.

p.s. if you're at all familiar with how wordpress themes work... mybb themes are exactly nothing like that. Undecided

RE: Site Maintenance
LOL I just found a huge glaring bug in the new forum.

Cannot create new threads, and the only way to reply to existing threads is the 'Quick Reply'.

This will be fixed ASAP.

Ok I think I've fixed this, and I am certain it wasn't my fault (this time hehe).

There were two css files referenced in the text editor templates, but the templates had neglected to include the '.css' suffix. And without those two css files, the text edit area was completely kaput.

Seems to be fixed now!
