Forum upgrade and new template
Jul 1st, 2015 at 8:17am
Print Post  
I have been working the last days on a new forum template for the upcoming forum upgrade.
The forum upgrade will offer a couple of fixes and new functions + also better usability for mobile devices.
Everyone is invited to check this new template for usability, readability, make suggestions for improvements and look out for graphical glitches etc. etc.
It is a dummy forum which content will be deleted once I take it over to the forum here.


Have fun Wink

PS: If you report problems or glitches please also mention your Browser and it's version.

I can't log in. I get an empty "SYSTEM INFORMATION" frame and I'm not logged. Using FF 38.0.5

Seems quite similar to the current one. I hope we'll get our little Unreal icons in place of the big blue ones.

did you register there?
I didn't take over the information of the current forums yet, so registering would be required, since this is only a test for now if everything is working with the template and the new system.
This also counts for the Unreal Icons- those will be re-imported, no worries Wink

Edit: you found a bug nevertheless, it should have shown "You are not allowed to access this section." - this text was invisible on the background. Fixed it Wink

all users, content and information will be transferred, no worries, but unlike previous upgrades this is a major release jump and  I want to have prepared everything before doing the upgrade to minimize downtime and trouble Smiley

ROFL, I waited for that. Indeed this button can be configured now to any timespan, even "unlimited" for all posts, so it indeed actually works finally now Cheesy

Ok friends, looks like the first attempt failed. Back to this one unless I ruled out the problems.
Sorry for all the trouble.

For anyone interested, the conversion (or yet any other attempts) still can be found here: http://www.oldunreal.com/cgi-bin/yabb2.6/YaBB.pl in order to test for the remaining problems

however, need a break right now

a big part, if not all problems have been coming from conversion, so I am trying to clean up things which affect the conversion script. Guess this will take a while yet...

It does not seem to like the trademark logo in my tag Dr.Flay™  Sad
Does UTF-8 not deal with things like that ?

UTF-8 supports high ASCII properly in addition to all of Unicode itself, so I don't see how that has to do with anything.

I haven't tested the new layout in the test forum yet but I imagine if Dr.Flay is having problems with the trademark glyph, I think my name will cause worse problems...

indeed one of the major reasons for that upgrade, I hope to have it working entirely soon so that I can take it really online.
