Technical difficulties

I nearly had a heart attack when I thought D-90 would become like dweb and was down.

Anyone notice the differences on the site now? No more names, no more vehicle info, pics show in a lightbox now...

Oh yeah, when I saw that it was down, I immediately thought Dweb. Then I went to Dweb and ironically it was working fine...

It was an accident. The upgrade was supposed to happen on the dev site and any issues worked out, before being performed on the live site. No point going to backups and lose posts (no the DB was not backed up immediately prior to said mistake). So just be patient with the issues and be sure to report them here.

It looks like profile data isn't being displayed right now, although avatars are. No biggie as all the data is there.

Oh and this site has no relation to dweb, other than both have been generously hosted for free by Defender Hosting for a number of years.

Yeah a lot of those I had coded into the style templates which all got updated. After the next upgrade I will work on getting them back.

oh my... the user albums are nice! If I can get a custom bio page configured, it could finally mean user self maintained bios!

I REALLY dig the new picture light-board!!

Yeah I was looking at that earlier. Looks like we can have different profile pics and Avatar pics now as well. Pretty cool.

Interesting. You don't even need the link if you name it "apple-touch-icon.png"

Is there any way to have it associated with a particular link? I think a lot of us use

http:www.d-90.com/forum/search.php?do=getdaily&days=1

as a favorites link just to see the newest posts.

Also, what would the picture be? That little yellow truck that shows up in my favorites page (which for some reason is not there right now)?

What Chris said:

As some of you might have seen, the forums went down last night. This was due to a mistake on my part that started earlier in the day when I thought I was uploading upgrade files to the development site, but actually uploaded them to the live site.

After we got that issue taken care of I proceeded to try a test run of the first part of the upgrade process to the test forums, unfortunately due to an oversight when I set up the config file for the test, I forgot to change the information to point to the dev forum, and not the production forum. When I kicked off the script, the live site started getting upgraded instead of the test site.

So basically we are now undergoing the site update sooner than I expected. Nothing like making a grand mistake or two to kick off improvements.

I have no idea just how many custom features I coded into the forum, have broken so please, if you find something not working, it would help me greatly if you would take a moment to post the thread in the Help section: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=23527

There will be more forum site outages as the upgrades continues but these should be announced in advance. Right now there most likely will be an outage this weekend, possibly starting Friday.

What I heard:

Blah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahD.90.com Down Blah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blahBlah blah blah blah blah
