Site Maintenance

Unread post by Saul »

I will need to take the forum offline for a few hours possibly tonight or tomorrow for some server maintenance. Not sure how long it will be offline but shouldn't be too long. So if you come to the forum and find it is suddenly offline you will know why. (Y)

I wasn't sure where to post this so I thought this might be as good a place as any.

In the last week or so, the visual style of the forum has changed and I can't figure out a way of setting it back to what it was before. I've searched the settings but cannot find the option that allows me to choose the board style.

Has this option been removed? Has the style of the forum been changed recently? Am I going bonkers??

Can someone help or advise?

Many thanks in advance!

I will be putting the forum into maintenance mode later today.

Not quite sure how long it will be offline but hopefully should not be too long. Just thought I would let you know. (Y)

I guess everything went as planned? I've been in and out of the forum for the better part of the day and browsing has been snappy and responsive so far.
Not made any posts though.

Yes forgot to update this thread. There were a few issues but they were sorted out pretty quickly. I didn't mention it but the site was actually moved to yet another VPS. This was because of so many issues with the DirectAdmin hosting control panel on the original so I migrated to Cpanel. It's a few dollars more but the extra flexibility more than compensates for it. Also, the site actually seems to be running even faster than before (Y)

There is though a glitch on the user registration page. Something on the server is conflicting with the Google reCaptcha V3 and preventing people from going any further with the sign-up process. I am working on it (Y)

Yeah, I know how it feels. I'm still conflicting with Google myself, don't see that ever ending :)

As to the server, it has been very responsive, noticeably more so than before the move. Good work!
