Regarding Forum Upgrade
« on: May 17, 2010, 11:45:32 PM »
I just want to point out, before anyone goes nuts, that I am trying to recover the old look of the forums right now.  The upgrade was big, and many changes were made, so this might take a bit.  I hope that, by tomorrow, we'll have everything back to normal.  I am sorry about this, lol.

Thank you for your understanding.

Okay!  I am almost done with the theme issue.

It happens that the latest version of this theme (without all the modifications we've made) is actually a whole mess; so I had to go back to the older version and make a bunch of manual tweaks.  Even after that, there's still some stuff missing, but I'll take care of that in the afternoon, after I get back from the university.

Watch out, Reives: the admin panel looks really nasty at this moment.  >.<  But hopefully we can manage for now.  I'm going to consider making an original theme for the forums, based on the new default SMF theme (Curve), which is pretty neat looking, and easier to customize and the old one.  That is, I would just try to mimic the current aspect, but much more consistently and whatnot...

The current logo of the forum confuses me. It makes me think that I'm in Simple Machines support forum.
I'm legend, because I uploaded the first image in the Media section :P

You can revert back to the old theme already; or, I'll just do it for you guys.

Thanks!

The shop items need to be re-added, so it has been disabled for now.  Sorry about that, but it was inevitable.  >.<

I have access to the shop.

But there are only new items that, e.g., increase your post count by 100. I think things that change the title are okay, but it fakes the statistics/general stats to increase the post count or the time online.

However, very good work, Arwym, I really like it!  :reivsmile:

I'll fix that shop issue ASAP.  I wanna make trading cards this year, so that would provably be a yes, lol.  xD

Also, I'd like you guys to try the Media section now, perhaps upload some stuff (to the right folders, of course) or even create your own media albums.  I wanna make sure it's worth it, that it works properly, and that the permissions are set right.

 :'( :'( :'(

is the default forum color changed to black? me no-likey.

and the text for the 'most recent post' stuff seems too small/wide to me.

and there are now four new emoticons that haven't been quintessence-ized :(

EDIT: just saw other post about fixing it later, okay then

Have you tried clearing your caché and reloading the site?  I don't see any of that.  Try going to your profile's settings, in the Look and Layout section, and switching to the Freebirds (Silent Wave) theme.

I tested the Media feature and I uploaded an image to it, but it gives the Your submission will be reviewed by a moderator before being made public. "error".

That means that every image uploaded will be added to a mod queue before made public?
I'm legend, because I uploaded the first image in the Media section :P

Thanks!  I already approved it.
That might be the case, at least for now.  I am still not sure if the Media gallery will stay, and what new albums will be introduced, but we have a few options: trust that members will add media files in the right place and respect rules, copyright and all of that, or submit to a queue, and hire some members to work as gallery moderators.
