Forum upgrade this weekend
« on: January 15, 2010, 10:10:36 PM »

I will try to upgrade the forum sometime this weekend, because of some security issues with this version. It will also add some capabilities and improve the search option. The forum will go into "maintenance mode" and you will not be able to use it while the upgrade is going on. Hopefully it will take less than 30 minutes. But if there are problems it could take longer . . .

Thanks for the heads up and thanks for all your work with this forum.  I don't know where I would be without it.

Right now I am in Columbus, Ohio at Capital University at the RMHI meet.  It is too busy for any toggling action but I did get some pole vaulting in and will hurdle here in a few minutes.

Well, I had a problem with the themes and languages, but I think the main things upgraded ok. I still need to put back the spintop buttons and put extensions compatible with this version (e.g. youtube). If you find any major problem tell me. Thanks.

The youtube BBC tag doesn't work anymore. Instead just write the url and it will embed it automatically. If you don't want the video window to appear, put the link between quotation marks: "video URL" I don't like too much that is automatic, but the old mod is not compatible with this version of the board. Anyway, the new "Aeva" mod is very powerful, but I still have to study its features.

Mmm, . . .  I see them. Maybe you need to refresh the page.
Any more problems?

After updating my browser I still not seeing the "new" botton in the post-line. :(

The image into the sign is now in all my messages. I'll delete it yet.

I fixed the problem Pulp was having (thanks for notifying me). The Spanish, French and Italian packs had not installed correctly. There may be some other problems somewhere, so tell me if you stumble into any.

PS: I just had an idea for April 1st . . .  :P
