Fourm Upgrade 1/17/2010

Post by JeffM »

We will be doing some upgrade work on the forum software tonight (US) so there may be some small outages as things are moved around.

We will be upgrading the version of phpbb and installing some new anti-spam features. We will also be changing the theme and images of the forum to match the main website better.

The upgrade is complete. The server is still rather slow. We have some leads on what may be causing it and will be working to get it back to normal speeds as soon as we can.

Please also note that quick reply is currently disabled. It will be re-enabled when we are able to swap it over to the new native phpbb version.

Quick reply is now shown by default. (joevano had already turned on the QR feature earlier today)

Any "new features" would be whatever the phpBB devs provided. We were on 3.0.4 and upgraded to 3.0.6. We are also using their built-in quick-reply feature (which was added in 3.0.6). It has less features than the mod we used to use (Evil Quick Reply), but it's less work to upgrade to a new version of phpBB now.

However, there are some users having issues authenticating in-game. They will have a minus sign by their name. The solution to this problem is to have them log into the forum one time. After that, they should be able to log into the game.
