As most of you know, I had posted about our changing forum software a few weeks ago. I did end up setting us up with the new software, but I'm unhappy with the look and feel of it and some of the options available. So I'm considering going a different route that's more like the software we are currently using. As a result, I'll need to close these boards for a day or two to (hopefully) successfully transition the members, topics, posts, etc.

(I closed up by accident...just trying something out).

Ugh...You'll have to log in to the VB forums using your displayed name and not your log in name.

And we've moved. Still a lot of work to be done, but this is basically going to be the new Legion World message board from here o out.

Okay, so apparently the ability of non-admins to post was not turned on.

I think it should be working now.

Okay, so apparently I had to reset each forum individually. But *now* I think the permissions are right on everything.

Could be worse. At least (before the permissions were fixed) I hunted down and un/repinned all the sticky topics that had gone invisible to make them show up smile

[No, I'm not joking]

Incidentally, here's the CSS code I'm using to make a few things more like the old board if it helps:
Code
table.t_inner td{padding:5px !important;margin:0px}
table.t_inner td.tdheader, table.t_inner td.subjecttable{padding:2px 5px !important}
.body_col,.navigation{padding:0px !important}
DIV.ubbcode-block{width:92.5% !important}
.ubbcode-body,.ubbcode-header{width:98.8% !important}
td.breadcrumbs{font-size:90% !important;
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #000000 0%, #000020 44%, #000080 100%) !important}
td.forumtitle a,.sticky_css a{font-weight:bold !important}


My views are my own and do not reflect those of everyone else... and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Right, it's hacky, but...

Add
Code
.right_col{display:none}


to the main CSS file.

Then in the HTML code for the forum list page itself, add
Code
<style type="text/css">
.right_col{display:inline}
</style>


Since that's read later in the process, it will override the display:none.

Actually, I'm going to be giving each forum it's own style, so I'll just add that bit to that style and leave this one alone.

Fair enough smile

One other suggestion - could you brighten the yellow up on the new-posts L? The red/blue borders are less prominent with the new version, so it'd make them stand out more:

Like this:

Okay, something mildly concerning. I was going through the 21CL Roll Call thread, changing links to point to the new board, and came across one post that's not come through at all - it's showing (including on the edit page) as completely blank. Here's the counterpart on the original board, for comparison.

In this case, I can restore it manually, obviously. I'm just wondering how many posts are like that...

Still playing around - if you add
Code
.modname,.globalmodname,.adminname {text-decoration:underline}


Then Firefox will make the underline the same colour as the link text, rather than the default link colour.

Could have been one of the stopping points, where I had to restart the process. So, if these exist then Spaceoploy will be filled with them. The old boards will be up for awhile (I'm turning off PMs, though), so any mods can transfer stuff like this over.

Took about five times to get to the site using copy and paste. when it didn't work, I typed in the address starting with the www and ending before the "]".


Damn you, you kids! Get off my lawn or I'm callin' tha cops!

Just noticed that any image wider than 400px is getting scrunched down via CSS. Is that deliberate, or a default setting?

[Oh, and any image posted with the [thumb] tag hack isn't showing, but you may have expected that one.]

I just tweaked the "Can Read Topics" permission to enable for "Guests" as well.

I assume we didn't want to have an uprising among the lurking class. smile

Wouldn't you like to know?
Seems that clicking on a link to another thread while you're logged on will necessitate logging on again before you can post to the linked thread. However, jumping around from thread to thread normally doesn't show any issues.

Still, am loving the new look and the speed at which you guys are tidying up! Awesome, and thanks for the hard work smile

Glad I can post again. It took me a few minutes to figure how to get here from the old site from my iPhone, I'm finally logged in.

File manager isn't working - I wanted to upload something in Bits there, and it tells me " File Manager: You can attach 1 files. Max. file size is 0 Bytes." And the 0 Bytes part is entirely literal. And trying to upload an image in Holo-Vids causes it to tell me that "We encountered a problem. The reason reported was: You have exceeded your limit of attachments."

And the Last Posts island on the forum list page isn't updating at all - the last post there is from 16 hours ago just now.

Not that it's a big deal, but everyone's member number has been increased by 1. I'm now Member #5.

The Last Posts issue is probably the same bug that affected the shoutbox...it's being generated externally and apparently that technology hasn't been perfected yet with this software. I'll have to consider other options.

I haven't really looked at/played with the attachments yet. Will figure that out when I can. Probably have to test with my Beast Boy account.

Member #1 is now the message board or something...I was demoted to #2 which of course affects everyone else.

This may be another flavor of the bug referenced above, but the "Popular Topics" box on the front page doesn't seem to accurately reflect the "Views" count - instead just showing the number of posts in those particular threads.

I don't know if the "views" numbers will be accurate until after the new message board is established. The old software never recorded that information, so posts is what it's based on now.
