Major overhaul of msgboard

By K2 on September 18th, 2006 at 2:44 am EST

Just a heads up folks, I’m in the process of wrapping up a pretty significant update/overhaul of the msgboard system we use here. It basically entailed uploading a fresh, up-to-date copy of phpBB, transferring the database from the current one over to the new one created, and then re-implementing plugins/hacks that are necessary (photo album, calendar, custom avatars, etc). Reason I’m doin’ this, is because over the last four years of having this message board and performing upgrades by hand because of all the custom modifications done, some things don’t work exactly like they should, and everytime I upgrade, there’s a chance something else might break, or simply not work like it should.

So, you’re gonna notice a few things missing, like the quick reply for one (it’s coming back, no worries), the photo album, and so forth. I am re-implementing those as I can… once I finish the photo album, everything else shouldn’t take too long. In case you’re not using the msgboard link to the left, and are going directly to the msgboard, the path is ../phpBB2/index.php now instead of ../phpBB/index.php.

Enjoy :-P
