IKE Club Forum Software Upgrade

Postby Babbman » Mon, Dec 17 2007, 09:10 AM

IKE spent a few days and has upgraded the forum software from phpbbXS to Icy Phoenix.

This was a rather large undertaking and we hope that we have captured most everything that we had here previously.

One thing to note, posts that were put up since Sat morning (of which there weren't many of dire importance in terms of knowledge, etc.) have been lost. This was by choice and necessity rather than by bugs or configuration problems. The steps necessary to convert the database without damage to it are complicated and time consuming and we believed that since we had something working properly (as far as we know), rather than risking the entire database to another round of conversion, we chose to loose a few posts. We apologize for the inconvenience.

There are a couple of other things to note...

This upgrade is still in progress as far as layout and graphics go. There are a couple of minor changes to the layout and a whole bunch of new features. We would appreciate it if you would notify us if you find any bugs or other problems.

The first steps for you though are to clear your cache in your browser if you are having any issues before contacting us. There are a lot of code and graphics changes that may be bypassed by your browser without following this step.

We will post a list of new features and changes to items that you may have been used to in the past, later today.

Please enjoy...

All this stuff about "IKE" has done this and "we" have done that.
Don't believe any of it.
Next time you see Babbman, give him a big ol' pat on the back. He did everything and he spent countless hours doing it.
Hats off to you and hip-hip-hooray for Babb!
