Forum should be upgraded later tonight and visitors should expect some offline time - hopefully not long.

If you notice any glitch on the matrix that should be corrected - do post your comments here so that we can try to get them solved quickly.

Thanks!!! (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)

I'm noticed nothing during the upgrade... and it is changing under my eyes ... and now it seems cool! (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)

I don't like this new 'dark' theme and the font. (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbdown.gif)
The new font is also very bad for my eyes (not a joke).
So I will always have to login now to get the old blue one (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Two things have been better in the previous version:
  • The 'Search' formular appears in the 'more' version
  • A post contains in the foot area, which members visited tosay.

Hi..

Sorry for the delay on getting the missing addons back online - my network connection is very slow/faulty and I'll only get back to a good uplink next monday. (I took a good while just to post this reply.. (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) )

Peter - are you using the webber skin or the new one that comes by default on the new IPB called IP.Board Pro (it's the one holder was mentioning on his topic)?

The webber skin comes with the search box on top.

Every new version that is uploaded takes a while to modify it back to our changes - also took some time to see what has recently been made available.

...also it seems like something has been set as to use "html" like instead of "normal" BB codes for (links for example).

...and formatting text is not working anymore in my good ol' Opera, it seems like it tries to open a new window when I hit any of the "normal" buttons, like Quote, Code or b/i/u.

The left side ones Center, CODEBOX, etc, (and Insewrt Special Items) do work popping up a new window, though...

Pardon me the RANT, but I am really MAD at this. (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/ranting2.gif)

The stupid, in my personal opinion perfectly unneeded update has "shortened" every single f*#ing bl^%dy link I ever posted! (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/realmad.gif)

Only a handful that were short enough are still good.

That approximates to more than one year of posts suddenly becoming USELESS! (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/vava.gif)

it will take WEEKS to correct all the links! (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

I want to cry.....(IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/blowup.gif)

OKAY, for ANY post related to a board, it is possible to "recreate" the correct address, examples:
QUOTE

becomes:
QUOTE

working link:
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=2959

QUOTE

becomes:

working link:

The links are not lost - please don't modify them until tomorrow or even later tonight.

I didn't added the friendly URL addon yesterday because I wanted to test a new addon from an offline forum on my own computer. This testing is needed to know if wether it is appropriate to use the older method which is not supported anymore or jump into these new developments that also improve other sections.


Updates are a necessary evil - otherwise our security will be rendered useless when the next script kiddie tries to explore known vulnerabilities on older board versions.

You might remember past episodes that ocurred over at 911cd when these caring souls hackessed the administration panels and brought mayhem to the forums.

Sorry for this annoyance.

----

About Opera - I've only noticed a patch for un/marked topic view, it seems that other people haven't reported it yet.

https://www.invisionpower.com/index.php?app...wcat&id=221

Hopefully should also be reported soon enough.
