nForcers.org site maintenance, updates, and announcements

Post by jpr »

Welcome back!

The migration from nforcershq.com was mostly successful, even if it did take a bit more time than expected.

Known issues so far:
  • Some smilies/emoticons are missing;
  • Avatars are missing;
  • Classic green theme is gone :(
  • Forum was heavily pruned (of both topics and users), as a result user post count and rank was affected - no way around this I'm afraid :|
  • You need to use HTTPS for cookies to be used (and to avoid being constantly asked to log back in), this should be fixed with a force redirect to HTTPS - HTTPS is always on, no longer an issue
  • Inline Youtube videos are not shown
  • Internal links are still using the old domain
Contact email: forum at nforcers dot org
Twitter: https://twitter.com/nforcers

Let me know if you find any issues, either in this topic or by PM!

Great job jpr, everything looks absolutely fine. Things like missing posts and the like are very small beans to be worried about! =D>

Thank you :)

Will try sorting the remaining issues during next week, and look about getting a new theme more "old school friendly" :lol:

Well done jpr :sweet:

Re the posts/users, this is what was pruned from the forum:
- Removed users with 0 posts, 0 visits
- Removed inactive users who haven't posted in two years
- Pruned forum posts older than five years
- Deleted my own posts
- Deleted redundant moderator/limbo threads

Unfortunately there's no way to prune posts and retain user posts counts without using a mod or manually via the back end.

Feel free to use the retronfhq theme, I prefer the clean white template :D

Only issue I'm getting is it wont keep me logged in. I have to sign in every time. The 'remember me' tick box wont stay ticked.

No script or blocking stuff as far as I can tell. Everything is allowed.

Yeah I think that's related to SSL, can you check if you are using it? I will deploy a fix to force it, should help (the cookies are set to be "secure", i.e. only set over SSL, that may be why they're not set).

Also, to make things easier, http(s)://nforcers.org redirects to https://forum.nforcers.org :)

Yep all fine now. Switched to using the HTTPS link instead. :D

I'm amused that the pruning resulted in an otherwise empty nforcers audio forum consisting of wolfie responding to a deleted OP. :lol:
