The upgrade

Recommended Posts

I hope everyone made it here okay. Can someone please post on the main page that the old usernames are no longer valid and that everyone should log in using their last Display Name?

I've noticed that a lot of the custom images aren't working like my Distinguished Member badge. The codes for the signatures are also sorta messed up. Here's wishing Sal the very best with this site update. :smile:

Happy Birthday to our dear lilshu btw. :tongue:

EDIT - Oh and i just noticed that the menu for many of the old codes like tagging members and spoilers are missing whilst the codes themselves aren't working. I'm sure Sal would have this sorted in a couple of days though. isn't working a

Fatalysm, you helped design the old site right? I suggest you PM Sal or something. You're prolly one of the best people right now to give him a status on things and maybe give him some help.

I notice I can comment on some threads but not others. The post by Sal, for example, I don't see a post option under. 

This post is to test my signature.

Yeah I figured it might be only DM's and up when I saw only Sal and Phoenix had posted, so your situation is quite strange...

Sal, if you want to take the site off for a few more hours, we're totally cool with it. :tongue:

EDIT - OMG, I love the new notification alert and the emoticons page needs a bit of work . :happy:

(But I've been refreshing every hour this whole weekend hoping to see you all again.)
 

Only big things I notice are the little flairs under our names (Admin, DM, Forum Member) and making signatures work again. Perhaps we'll have to start formatting them a new way though if the new board version doesn't use the same formatting as the old version. I'll play around with mine. 

E: Strangely enough, if you go into signature settings and preview the sig (last button) it will show up with all pictures as normal, just the spacing is very awkward. Don't know why it isn't showing up in threads then.

There's a few images to be replaced and it looks like we're all stuck with terrible signatures unless people login and edit them to remove the BB CODE.

As far as upgrades go on older sites and forums, this one went reasonably well by the look of it!

Weirdly, I just looked and it says that BBCODE4 is enabled in the latest version of IPB so maybe it's just not displaying correctly due to permissions.

Hm, don't know how you managed that Fatalysm.. mine is still strange. (Nevermind, working now, just had to press save again)

Additionally, it might be my computer but I see a lot of squares on the forums now where special buttons should be.

Yeah, same here. The signature images are''t linking properly though.

I would just like to take this moment of crisis to plug the Sal's Realm NationStates page that me and Demon Jelly (or whatever he calls himself these days) created. Do you have a few minutes of your life to waste on a satirical political simulator? Then create an account and join us today! :biggrin:

You're getting squares because IPS cannot see the images in the directory, basically Sal needs to re-upload the images or re-link them.

Speaking of theming the forums, I really think people should vote on their favourites and I would happily donate to add some.

There's bound to be a few bugs with the switch over, we're going to have to either wait for Sal or depend on Lilshu's competency of the administrative panel :P.

If you want to fix your signature, take out all the code and use the rich-text editor, seemed to work for me.

I just went into account settings > Signature and pressed save without touching anything, and it worked. Then I went in and tried to fix the spacing between paragraphs (just can't get it as close as it used to be).

Runescape Blue or NOTHING!

Feel free to send me your Steam Account so I can compensate you somewhat and help pay for the new theme man. I don't have a working PayPal so that's the best I can do.

Not gonna lie.. if RuneScape Blue is a thing I dearly miss it.

Lemme look into it. I might be able to conjure up something, I'll see if I can do something.
