Forum version upgrade
« on: July 16, 2014, 02:42:07 pm »
Heads up we are about to preform a forums upgrade.  Any new messages/posts will not be saved till the transfer is complete.  ETA 1-2 hours or less.

The upgrade did not happen due to unforeseen issues. It will be attempted again tomorrow I hope.

Kobuk: There is the improved security of up to date releases as well as newer up to date mods.

I liked the old version better. This new version will take getting used to.  :( We're missing half of the cat emotes.

That was one of the first things i noticed too... oh well, at least there's more blue stuff.  Blue is a cool color.

Just be patient while everything gets cleaned up. It may take a little time to get everything put back in place. It's like moving to a new house or apartment. Everything is transported in boxes and put roughly where it belongs, but it takes some time to get everything set up just so.

We are aware of the issue, and will be working to get that resolved.

Again, we ask for patience while we get the dust settled.

Kobuk,  any time a major update is done it can take a while to iron out the problems.  There's no need to panic.

If you notice any major bugs,  you can always take screenshots and post them in a thread here:  http://forums.furtopia.org/furtopia-org-services-support/


Thanks.  ^^

It looks like the redirection loops have fixed themselves. If they occur again at any point please let me know.

For those who might not have realized it yet: if you don't like the big header with all your stats at the top of the forums, you can hide it by clicking the little mark at the top right of the screen. :)

I actually like the new look a lot; its something new, which I find refreshing :). I think it feels "friendlier" for some reason...  And I like the header, it's very useful.
I did notice the profile "species" field has disappeared though?

I love this update :D (so far). It's nice and clean and the functionality is really nice. (being able to move things to a sidebar position such as the one in "My Messages" and being able to hide things). I'll make more comments when I discover new things ^^

I'm not panicing, Alsek. I'm simply stating whatever problems or issues there are that I'm having/seeing. Panicing is for when I run out of Mt. Dew..........which hasn't happened yet thankfully.  :D

Yes and no to this one. The old forum used custom php to make that field. The new forum software can make custom profile fields within the software itself. We still have it. It's just moved to the bottom for the Forum Profile page.

Just look to the left of this post to see I still have my species :)

Odd thing about that:  I had to re-input my species info. last night. But after I did, that's when I lost my avatar and have never been able to fix my avatar since.
