    Forum Major upgrade!

    Hi guys,

    I have been postponing this upgrade for weeks (months?) but finally decided to stop procrastinating and go ahead with it. I will be working overnight tonight (from Midnight onwards) to upgrade the forum and as a result will have to close the forum overnight.

    If all goes to plan, the forum should be running tomorrow, but from past experience, a few things might break, and my plan is to fix them and get the forum back to normal during the course of Friday.

    As this will be a major vbulletin upgrade, some of the existing features might either disappear or not quite work over the next few weeks.

    On the other hand, there should be many exciting new features to discover and play with.

    I'll be looking forward to your reports on the things I need to fix over the next few days...

    Thanks for your patience, and I hope you enjoy the new improved Ceroc Scotland Forum!
    Franck.

    There's an A.P.P. for that!

    You mean it doesn't all happen by magic?

    Phew, It's now almost 7.00am, and after an all-nighter, I have upgraded the main part of the forum. I'm probably about 70% done, so you'll spot many missing things and broken areas.
    I'm now going to get a few hours sleep, and will look forward to your error reports, feedback and areas still needing work when I get up later this morning!

    Have fun all,

    Franck.

    There's an A.P.P. for that!

    OOh.. at first glance it looks so different and the moderation side of things looks scary too

    But I do love playing with new stuff..... (and I love the new Mod zapping tool, that sends a real slap through the screen of the offender... such fun! )

    Re: Forum Major upgrade and downtime!

    The 'thanks' button is vanished or will it be back when its finished?

    I can't see the other rep tab, as I've been told I need to spread it about a bit before I can rep again

    Re: Forum Major upgrade and downtime!

    Just heard from some people who aren't able to post..

    They can view everything but when it comes to posting, they're being told they need a widget or something like that?

    Now, I'm thinking that maybe EVERYONE is experiencing the same problem, as as far as I can see, I'm the only one who's posted since the upgrade

    Can anyone reading this, try to post please... then we'll know

    Re: Forum Major upgrade and downtime!

    Whoops, I didn't check if non-Mods were able to post before going to get some sleep... I think I may have fixed it now, but can't be sure, as I wasn't affected by the bug...

    There's an A.P.P. for that!
