    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.

    I keep clicking on the chat button, because that was where the forum button was. Sometimes even the simplest of things take a little retraining.roud:

    Nevertheless, thanks for keeping us up to date & a great job with the site in general. I like it here!

    I tried to keep the old style, but there were just too many problems with it in compatibility with this update.

    I did try, however, to make this new style as close to the old one as possible in regard to the layout. Hopefully it will seem very familiar and just as easy to navigate.

    I think I got the update finished. Let me know if any of you run into bugs or glitches.

    I pulled an all nighter getting it all done. Think I started around 2 in the afternoon yesterday and finally finished up around 3 or 4 this morning - with a few breaks thrown in.

    I did a pretty thorough cleaning and update of the site. Over the last year I had kinda thrown patches and updates on without fully keeping the coding clean. I went back and cleaned up all the messes I had left behind and then reapplied all the updates, add-ons, and extras. Was a pain in the ass, but the site should be running clean and fast now with very few, if any, hiccups.

    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.

    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.

    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.
