Site upgrades in progress (Sept 16 2011)
« on: September 16, 2011, 05:00:39 am »
I'm in the process of upgrading the forums to the latest version of SMF. It's a major upgrade from 1.1 to 2.0 line of SMF so let me know if you see problems. The site may be up and down & sometimes closed for maintenance over the next little bit as I find & fix issues.

I see!

When I tried to log back in, I had 2 login boxes.  One on the upper left and one in the middle of my screen.  My user/pw had autofilled into the upper left one, but it called it invalid.  I was able to log in fine from the middle box though.  It works fine if I manually type my pw into that upper box as well.  This probably isn't an issue with the forum software though....

I think you probably caught it right as I was flipping from Maintenance mode to open, maint mode will give you login in the middle and every page will show you the one up top.

I'm running through second checks on permissions and things right now. I'll work on themes after that, with the major changes, all old themes are a mess so I had to remove them. I will try to find updated versions of the old ones if possible, but I haven't checked all of that yet.

For anyone looking to change their theme, they can visit http://beastlords.org/index.php?action=profile;area=theme

Will this fix the posting issue? I tried posting something last weekend and gave me a post within 15 seconds message.

Ah, sorry about that. Missed permissions on 2 boards for viewing on people with different titles. Fixed now :)

Things should be fairly calm for now, but speed may or may not be the usual/better, still tuning the new configuration over the next day or two.

Looks pretty sharp.  Having "Last Post" in bold on the board index is distracting, makes it harder to see "Today" and "Yesterday" if just skimming for new posts.  Maybe it's just me though!  But if a theme were added without that particular item in bold, I'd not complain!
