    Default 2011-07-31: forum upgrade incoming

    I'm going to upgrade the forum at 20:30 my time tonight, so you might want to back up any long post you're making because about ten minutes after I post this, the forum is going down.

    Sorry for the inconvenience*.




    *Not really.

    Heh!

    Funny story... was watching California Man in the background whilst doing this... and, well, long story short... I've broken the main site by copying forum files to the wrong place.



    Anyhow, that's that broken.

    Forum still hasn't been upgraded, for those of you on the very edge of your seats. Looks like I have a bit of fixing ahead of me to try and resurrect the main site.

    So, at the risk of talking to myself yet again, I appear to have rescued the situation.

    The main site seems to be working now - let me know (if anyone actually still visits) if you have any issues. Same goes for the forum.

    The upgrade managed to overwrite the custom user time field value I was outputting with each post. Right now it's too late and I'm too tired to figure out how I did it and where it went in the template, so if you relied on that information for all your timezone needs, you'll have to hang on until I can work it out.

    Word to the wise - if you're ever upgrading a vBulletin forum, don't do it with a beer in one hand and one eye on a cheesy 80's comedy movie.

    Sounds like a lot of hassle. Everything seems to be working fine at my end now though.

    Only those trying to sort out a Bling Brigade GG or other contest will be thrown by the timezone info not being available.

    Cool

    Well...I loved the "forum is being upgraded" message you had on. Wish I'd taken a screenshot for posterity. (all I needed for a laugh)

    That one's been there for ages, except it said doughnut instead of cake. I changed it to cake because I had some nice cake yesterday and thought I should spread the word.
