Board changes
« on: March 17, 2009, 09:55:31 pm »
Ok, we've gone to SMF.  The mass of spam signups has necessitated doing something beyond phpBB2.  A bunch of modifications aren't in place, and we're considering going to SMF2 from here, but haven't finalized that as of yet.  Until then, it'll be a bit lean on the mods, but will work for now.

Wow
I was already freaking out that I couldn't get on
*twitch

I sure have to get used to this new board, though, phew! :D

I have a few questions:
- Will we get a "sent box" in our Private Message options?
- Will there be more smilies we can use?
Hmm.. what else...

The Outbox is your sent messages box.  More smileys is easy.

Thanks Kelly for taking care of this.  You are awesome...

To everyone else (I know a few people have hit me up via IM)... THERE WILL BE WEIRDNESS!  The tools to move the data from phpBB to SMF are awesome, but they're not perfect.  The two apps work very differently.

If you can't upload something, can't post, can't see replies, etc... PLEASE LET ME KNOW!

You can either IM me (katiakaysha) or email me katia@nessaholics.com.  Make sure you note your username cuz i don't have everyones memorized all the various spellings :P

thanks
-katia

p.s. i hope everyone likes the new forum :)

It caught me completely by surprise today, but this is the first time I'd been on here in over a month. I like it, and apparently I'm already familiar with it because one of the mobile phone forums I use a lot has this exact same layout, albeit with a different color scheme.

The only issues I'm having are that there is no place to put what I'm listening to right now, and my signature is limited to 300 characters. Nothing major.

I'm sure there's a modification for SMF to do things like "I'm listening to..." but we're holding off on major mods as SMF2's getting closer to release.

WOW Glad you finally did this once a proper theme is installed! the choices are endless but I'm sure a great looking one will be found. if you need any help or have SMF questions I'm glad to help. I have a number of SMF based forums up feel free to contact me directly or on the Mairead Nesbitt forum

Great Job!!! ;D ;D

Hmmm, Katia or Trolan, you might wanna check out the posting rights in the "Official VC posts" because it seems like anyone can post in there now...

A little thingie that's been bothering me: everytime I come to the boards, next to "news", it says: "Birthday information wasn't able to be converted.  If you want it public, update it here".
I try to update it but it never works and I get this message all the time. Any fix for that please?
