Forum outage and upgrade.
« on: January 11, 2013, 08:11:50 PM »
The forum will be down for an upgrade on January 17, 2013 from 1AM to 7AM. This outage is to allow us to move to the current version of the forum software. If you have any questions please let me know!
Thanks,

Tom

Once this happens I will have to work on making the new forum look like the current version.  We will lose the current White/Blue/Gold Minerva theme, but I will make sure we have options.

As you can probably tell with the changes the forum upgrade is complete. There is still work to be done but the heavy lifting should be done. Please reply to the thread in RF Updates with any errors you may get, it would be good to know the date and time too to help track down the inevitable bugs.

Thank you for your patience!
Thanks,

Tom

giffigesady is our 1st spammer on the new forum, with well over 200 postings. Death to spammers! >:(

I'm working on finding a more suitable "skin" for the forum at the moment.  Also, spam monitoring appears to be much easier with the upgrade.

I am having trouble accessing the forum using Chrome and Firefox. It says it has a redirect loop. I've tried clearing my cache and cookies. Is this just me?

I haven't had a problem with FireFox, I'll load a VM to test Chrome and see what happens. Sorry you're having problems.

One more thing I noticed.... my post count isn't updating.
I've made well over a dozen posts, but it still only says 6.

The Forum doesn't count posts made in the Mundane Topics section.  (If it did I'd probably have more than triple the posts counted as I do!  LOL!)

I would, too, Lady Fae.  I guess we're just a couple of mundane folks...  :P

Tom, I got the message "Wrong value type sent to the database. Array of integers expected. (quoteids)" when I posted the previous.  I'm using Firefox 18.0.1.  I've gotten it before when using someones quote, if that is any help.

I've gotten that, too, every time that I post something in quotes.  The post still shows up, though, so I hadn't mentioned it.

Thanks for pointing it out, I'm working on it. It's a problem with the Tapatalk plug-in, I hope to have it fixed soon.

Hi Tom,

I didn't see an answer.  Is there a way to enlarge the font on a permanent basis, if not for the whole forum, can a person individualize what they are seeing to change it?

Hi,

You can change your theme in profile settings. You can also check your web browser, most of them have a setting to control the size of the displayed text on a website.
