Forum Update
« on: February 27, 2011, 01:05:54 PM »
Well some probably already noticed, but as of this morning the forum has been upgraded. I believe we've been down for a small 40min during that time. Right now I'm done doing the final settings so everything should be working now.

I did encounter one minor thing which is that during the update the forum suddenly detected that the server is located in the Netherlands, so it changed the default time according to that knowledge. So you might need to change your local time offset, but apart from that everything went as it should be.

Well I hope you all like the new environment and should you find anything out of the ordinary don't hesitate reporting it. I've tessted all major functionality, but a small setting is easily overlooked :D

There's one thing that went missing. Can you display your online time at the top of the page again? :P

The only problem I got is it doesn't say on the top when you have a new message. It could just be me, and I wasn't paying attention, but I thought I didn't see it. :P Apart from that, it looks great!

Which theme where you using Jacob, as I don't remember the forum ever telling me how many new messages I've had (besides the popup feature which you can select in your profile settings).

I'll add it once I find where its located. They've changed the name of that variable and I can't seem to find the new one :-\

A link would appear at the top of the page (between the online time and unread posts / replies to your posts) telling you that you've received a new personal message.

Re: Forum Update -- [bug fix]
« Reply #10 on: March 30, 2011, 11:34:00 AM »
As some might have noticed a few bugs have been popping up after the forum update. This include the insert Quote button not working and the Japanese character set being messed up (you couldn't even post Japanese characters anymore).

Today I've upgraded the forum from 2.0 RC4 to 2.0 RC5 basically the later version is nothing more than a bug fix for the forum itself. One of the global fixes was an automatic fix to post Japanese characters again, and lucky for me after upgrading the insert Quote button started working again as well.

I did need to reinstall all modification to the forum so there might be something I forgot, but appart from that everything should still be the way it was only then better ;D

one thing i've noticed, on the old version (at least i think) when you said a naughty word with something like "ing" it auto censored the bad part, now it doesn't recognise it as a bad word at all

For some words it does for some it doesn't. We got kinda sick of not being able to write Yoshitaka Amano without it becoming Yo*bleeb*aka Amano. You shouldn't use cursing words in the first place.
