  • Updating website software today - 7/8/08

    I'll be updating the website software today. I will be trying to do this while the website is left online. Be aware that you may notice a glitch or website hiccup from time to time. Some of the forum functions may not work as they should until the update it complete.

    The forum will be offline for about 20 minutes as I update the forum software. After that, I will turn it back on and continue to update the other components.

    Can the software allow the users to select a different skin (look) of the website? I just got used to all the icons from the last update.
    Nevertheless, thanks for keeping us up to date & a great job with the site in general. I like it here!

      Yes. I will put the option to choose between this style and the old style.

      There just may be some display errors on the old style since it hasn't been fully updated to conform to the recent forum software update.

        Thanks Zeb.... you da man!!

        Also, wondered where the other bar of words (links) were above the forum area? (I think it had a link to Casino, Forums, and some other stuff.) Clicking on the YardLimits.com logo doesn't take you to the home page now either.

        Then again, you may still be updating stuff.
        Thanks again.

          I'm working on it all. Just will take time to get it all back up after the update. I decided to update the software and still keep the site online so everyone could use the forum. I should have most of this done by later tonight.

                  It wasn't by choice. I was perfectly happy with the old look. But that style hasn't been modified to work well with the updated forum software. So if I wanted to install the updates to keep the site secure, I had to go out an hunt down a compatible style.

                    Anything that doesn't look out of the box is good in my view.

                      I agree. Just a royal pain in the ass to do it all. Along with the update for the forum software, I have had to find a new style for the website, edit it to work with the site (images etc), and then edit and reinstall some 20+ plug-ins I had installed over the past year.

                          Thanks for your hard work Zeb. Always good to have a place to vent sometimes and have people that understand what your talking about. Keep it up.

                            The new look was a shock, but I've already grown accustomed to it, and prefer it over the last look. Thanks Zeb, not alot of people here know the effort you go through to enable us to use this site. Your hard work if very appreciated.
