  • Forum Upgrade

    Sometime in the near future, we will be taking the forums down for an upgrade. We estimate a couple of days to backup and complete the upgrade, but things have been known to go wrong, meaning a longer downtime.

    We are hopeful that this upgrade will increase the stability of the forums.

      I'll post the exact time and date when I know for sure. Soon, because the instability is increasing. We will keep the forums up while doing backups, as far as I know.

        Actually, because we want to import all the content including posts to the upgraded version, I'll shut down before backups. Planning on starting tomorrow morning, say 10ish?

            The forum pages only show like 15 threads at a time. Can that be increased?

              Currently wrestling with other issues after the upgrade, but increasing the # of threads shown shouldn't be a problem.

                  Just to let you know, the old links apparently don't work either. I don't know if there's a way to at least alias them to the new style. I remember something similar happening when moving from ATT to RA.

                    I'd be surprised if they can fix that. It looks like the post numbers and thread numbers changed during the upgrade. I could be wrong but I tried substituting /forum/[forumname]/[subforumname/ for the old /threads/ in old URLs and I received a post from a completely different forum.

                    Test: Is post tag enabled? (Doesn't seem to work although there is code for the tag.)

                      What the heck does unapproved mean? https://roninarmy.com/forum/atomic-t...061#post388061
                      And why can't I edit my that post?

                      It looks like the old "equal sign causes posts to break" bug.

                        If you mean links to other posts aren't working, I might be able to fix that by rebuilding that part of the database. If you're referring to the locked archives of the GR, M&M, and/or True20 forums, the software those run on doesn't work on the version of PHP I had to upgrade to in order to get these main forums working. I should be able to get those upgraded, but getting RoninArmy stable is my first priority.

                          Nah, I'm mainly concerned about things like character sheet indexes or the games list.

                              Links to posts created before the upgrade, the links are wrong. Most likely the only fix would be to put a URL rewrite in server. But i'm not sure the old post numbers match the new numbers.
