Title: Site Upgrade
Post by: Oldiesmann on February 16, 2019, 12:03:10 am
Just a heads up to everyone. I'm going to be upgrading the site tomorrow morning/afternoon. The upgrade will bring a new layout and quite a few new features, including native likes and notifications (the current systems are add-ons), improved attachment handling and more. It will also allow the site layout to work with mobile devices without having to use Tapatalk (though I will keep support for that as long as it works with the new version of the forum software).

Note that the upgrade will also result in us using the default theme for a while, but I will work on getting the current one updated as quickly as possible.

The site will be inaccessible for a while during the upgrade, but I don't anticipate this being for more than half an hour.

Site upgrade is complete. I'm still working on tweaking a few things but everything should be working as expected.

Note that Tapatalk is currently not supported. If/when they upgrade the plugin to support the new version of the forum software, I will add support for that back. However, the new version is mobile-friendly so you should be able to access it from your mobile browser just fine.

Also note that the links section is gone, as is the "Ultimate Profile" (profile comments, etc.) as neither of those addons support the new version. A customized theme will be returning at some point as well.

Shop mod has returned as well. Unfortunately we had to start from scratch there so everyone's credits have been reset.

One more thing. You will need to go into your profile and fix your timezone. Click on your username in the top left corner then click "Look and Layout" and select the appropriate timezone from the list. The forum default is Eastern so if you're on Eastern time you can just select "(Forum Default)". Save the settings once you're done.

Still working on fixing a few things but you should all be able to login now.

Site has been upgraded to SMF 2.1 RC2. No new features this time around, just a lot of bug fixes. Let me know if you run into any issues.
