Software Upgrade

Postby salt6 » Wed Feb 22, 2012 9:44 pm

I will need to upgrade the form software in the near future. I plan on loading the basic theme, adding all the upgrades and then the current style. So don't worry if you come in and things look funny.

:wnana:
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

I have to ask... WHY ? Every time you do this, all the photos are LOST. We have lost TONS of important and often irreplaceable photos. You cannot convince me that it has been worth it, seriously.

Well I don't know if this relevant or not. I know that somehow someone has been popping in and spamming on a certain post. What seems interesting to me on it is that every time that I have seen it there has been no post count or any other info. So this upgrade might be to prevent someone from coming in and taking over the site and trashing everything. Pics were lost in one upgrade but I think that more has been lost due to hacking. Not sure on any of the last statements just something that I'm thinking.

GOOD LUCK and hope that you have a lot of backup for everything.

We only lost images when I moved to a new host and when we had a major attack. This is just basic software update.

Okay, THAT is a good reason: Security. But there has to be a way of saving the hard earned pics!

Well my guess is that the new software is on us and hopefully nothing big has changed. My screen colors are different and a chat room button now shows up on my screen. I'll try the new colors which are grey for a while as I think that this gives me a chat room button. Might have to change back if too many folks do their posts in yellow. Yellow posts are a pain in the butt to read.

Thanks for the website and all of it's info.

Previously the 'sticky' section was separate from 'topics' on the first page of the forums. Now there is just the 'sticky' header and you have to look to see where the stickies stop and the regular topics begin.

In case you hadn't noticed that.

See the posts I have to wonder if Bil got an "L" back? Seeing Bill with 3 posts with 6 stars makes me think about it. Is this the real, old Bill back or ????

Software upgrade looks good so far. Good Luck with the rest. And hope that everything gets backed up offen.
