I just purchased a renewal to upgrade the forum's software to version 7.6.0 which was released (finally) recently.

Since the weekend is coming up, I think that would be the best time for me to try and upgrade us - barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Here's a few of the new features we can look forward to -

  • Every forum page will be updated to be Mobile Friendly
  • SEO Friendly URLs
  • Drag-drop Attachment Manager
  • Proper Timezones and automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustments
  • New Login pages
  • Updated Voting / Polls
  • Image preview in the Attachment Manger
  • Updated User Settings and Preferences pages
  • Who's Online -- Major updates. reduce each item to a single row
  • Profile Page, with social networking support
  • UBB Gallery pages have been rewritten


When I have a time-frame worked out, I'll announce here and in the shoutbox. I'll have to close the board for an undetermined period of time to work on the upgrade. If you have any questions, please let me know.

So, does that mean every link to the board is going to break?


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

No. I think it's a setting that I'd have to set and I don't really care about that sort of thing.

If all goes well, I'm going to attempt the update this evening. Around 7 or 8 pm Pacific, which is about 3am-4am GMT or 10pm-11pm Central.

I'll announce in the shoutbox before we go under the knife.

Is there a way to adjust the UI so it is not so wide on PC monitors?

Has the "Mark All Read" link stopped working for anybody else? It only takes me to a blank white page.

It's a known error - Mark All Read

I'll fix this when I have a chance at home. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Did I fix the Mark All Read error? I looks fixed to me.

Also, my recent upgrade seems to have angered the hosting gods, so to make them happy I'm upgrading my account (more money per month urk), but hopefully they won't pull the plug.

This means I can't make any more changes until after we migrate to a new server tonight. And during this process some of the site may be inaccessible.

Just one of the foes Nighty faces on our behalf...

[Linked Image]

Mark all seemed to work for me...

EDIT: I just got attachment manager working for this one. I've not tried it often, but that's the first time it's worked for me. Yay for upgrades*!


*unless it *was* working all along and it was just me being thick. Then *I'd* need an upgrade so then Boo for upgrades!
