Server Shenanigans - Late Feb 2015

Post by Cartollomew » 27 Feb 2015, 03:18

Apologies for the weird forum issues lately.

Not sure exactly what the hell is going on, but I suspect it has something to do with the imminent decommissioning of the server we've been hosted on for the last few years.

I've been meaning to move us to my own server in Singapore and update the forums to phpBB 3.1 - so this seemed as good a time as any.

The problems appear to have all been resolved in the process of moving and upgrading.

Given we're now both on a new server and a new version of the forum, please post in this thread if you have any issues or complaints.

If you can't post in this thread... well... um. That's an issue. I'm sure someone will be able to contact me through the usual backchannels.

hugs and kisses,
xCart

UPDATE:
The best way to contact me will likely be via Twitter:
@MrIhlein

Bookmark that - if things are down for maintenance/disaster, I'll tweet it.

If you could also add back in the alternate style that was available on the old board, that would be fantastic. But no hurry on it, whenever you have time. :)

Edit: Christ those avatars are big.
I hate jokes about German sausages. They're the wurst.

You mean with avatars on the left?

There was more to it than that. Unfortunately I cannot go back and get the name of the style now. I'll try and do some hunting for a similar style to use.

Edit: Pretty sure it was subsilver. The latest version appears to be subsilver 3:

Nein - not supported under this version.

There'll be an equivalent for 3.1 though, I'll go fishing.

I think I did a little hackery to get the last one left-oriented. I'm not comfortable doing that for 3.1 though - it's designed to display as mobile friendly when it makes sense to do so, and I'd prefer not to mess that up.

Is it necessary any more?
3.1 provides a mobile friendly website.

No idea. Just reporting broken ^_^. Does the SSID thing still happen or is that fixed again? The Hong where you log in and it doesn't keep you logged in at all.

That should be working fine.

Still broken for me.

I log in with Remember me selected.

get a URL that looks like this:

molotov.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10747&p=94770&sid=68fc09a0abf54f6e1491485f99120f91#p94770

any time I navigate without using internal buttons including refresh, I have to sign in again.
