View Full Version : I am giving up

I am giving up trying to get everything working well on this software. I am starting to build/customize an entirely new forum system this week and hope to have it online in a few weeks. I will try to make sure to keep as many features as possible in the new version and add other new great features.

I would prefer to keep this system but we will need to change before the end of the year anyway due to PHP 5.6 having reached "end of life" (No longer supported). I think it is better that I spend my energy on making sure the new software is great rather than fixing bugs in the one we need to replace anyway.

I found that if i use the mobile version of the web page on my tablet, then i get no new posts. If i change it to desktop version the it works.
I still cannot load pics.
Good luck with the new software

Totally agree with this. You have to upgrade sooner or later, best to do it now.

The new version will still be user friendly, I hope? For those of us who aren't tech geniuses. Will those of us who have posted pics in these forums and in the gallery have to reload them all over again with the new version?

I am excited for the new server. The only issues I seem to be having now is the new posts not showing and no email notifications. Oh and the photos.

Yes. It will work almost exactly the same. The changes will mostly be behind the scenes. You should not have to re-upload any images, they should still be here.

Yes, I am aware of these problems and I know what is causing them now but they remain hard to fix in a good way. Requires major changes to the code which is why I decided to create a new system.



Thank you all for the kind words.

I, too, have stopped getting e-mail notifications about new post quotes. I used to get these whenever there was one. Just letting you know ...

As long as the current version continues to work with Microsoft Edge for a while, I'm happy. I can't work with this type of site on my phone. In fact, I do little with my phone except call and text, maybe take a pic here and there. I'll read one of my books that are sync'd if I'm stuck somewhere and have some time to kill. But even that's annoying.

The current version will continue to work as it does now until the day we switch over to the new system. When we do I will need to turn off posting for a few hours or so to convert the database. I will let you know in advance.

Thanks very much, my friend...it's much more fun to ban the actual live trolls than it is the robo-crap spam, but still fun, regardless


Agreed......

Thanks, boss...lol

I am glad that some of the issues have be partially resolved because I was going through some serious withdrawal as well. I sometimes get the new posts and take advantage when I can. I look forward to the new site and any changes/improvements that it brings.

Thank you William for all you do! Ditto to all you mods.
