  The update of updates
Posted by: Silverthorn - 09-20-2014, 07:59 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (46)

During the past few years, the forums have gotten a little rusty. In fact, the last major update was 4 years ago and since then, quite a few things changed.

In the next few days, I'll undertake the mission to upgrade the forums to a new version. What will this mean?

  • I'll lock the forums and then backup the database --> no posting possible
  • Upgrade of the forum software --> possibly weird page display which does not necessarily make sense
  • Bringing back the major features of the forums which are not included in the default system (usermap, chat, HoF, MotM, Awarded List, and possibly a few other thingummies I forgot)
  • Fixing major bugs
  • Opening the forums again --> from then on, you can proceed as-is
  • Fixing smaller bugs, i.e. bad images
  • Working on a theme á la "LFE v2". The other themes (blue, black, red, green) have reached their end of life and will not be developed further. Once theming is completed, it'll be made the default one again (those that don't want a dark theme and prefer the light MyBB theme will have to manually switch back).

If you wish to communicate with others, I advise you to do so via IRC under the following link: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=lfe
I'll hang out there as well, so if there are any questions, feel free to ask them!

Until then, expect some downtime :p

Current todo-list:
  • Add links to: motm, hof, usermap, stream, awarded, java-chat is deprecated and will be fully replaced by the one on lf2stream
  • Dark theme
  • Awarded list avatars
  • HoF styling
  • Modnotice
  • [spoiler], [motm], [award], [img]
  • exclude forum games from general searches (getnew, getdaily, ...)
  • show [code=lang] in editor
  • "//phoenix edit"s --> plugin - WTF I ACTUALLY MADE IT THROUGH THIS LIST
    • custom page locations (unless they have an associated plugin)
    • GMT-display (will toggle between current and gmt @ bottom right)
    • calendar bg images --> necessary? nope :p
    • Display a warning that the user must activate his account within 3 days.
    • Different style for motm
    • Display "Offline since {Date} ({Time})" instead of just "Offline" when you hover over the offline-icon
    • legitimation of bot-ban & unactivated accounts removal
    • userpruning for bots & unactivated
    • add country in memberlist
    • search thanks
    • poll countdown
    • the havoc that takes place on the stats-page
  • "Who was online today?"
  • "View New Posts (x)"
  • Left/right scroll @ worldmap
  • geocoords in user cp
  • The highly elusive } in postbits
  • Different editor? --> off the list for now. The default works well enough, imho
  • Port Overview from 1.6 to 1.8
  • fix "Unknown Location" in who's online
  • advanced editor in quick reply
  • give links in posts their own class (unnecessary, css will do the deal just fine)
  • registration-questions
  • spoiler class
  • gravedig-warning
  • The highly elusive linebreak-characters that get added in nested quotes

  Downtime III
Posted by: Silverthorn - 07-18-2014, 04:06 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (19)

...and the great quest continues!

On a more serious note, though, this post/announcement is to inform that LFE is back up and running as before. To those of you that weren't on IRC during the past week, I'll try to sum it up:

  • LFE and HFE are both running on the same server with the same contract
  • HFE got compromised, the host shut down the site and anything that is somewhat related
  • MH had to sign a paper that he will do anything he can to prevent this from happening ever again plus take down any vulnerable things
  • Status of now: LFE Mainsite is up, LFE-Forums up as well. HFE-Mainsite will have to be rebuilt completely, HFE-Forums probably need a major upgrade.

Why did it take so long? Host demanded a lot of things which were impossible to do for the mere mortals, so negotiations took place. Yes, I know, retarded explanation but that's how the potato rolls.

That's all I can tell for now.

  LFE v10
Posted by: Silverthorn - 06-15-2013, 02:04 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (13)

[Image: lfe-v10-banner.png]

It has been done! Most work on the mainsite has been finished and I'm proud to announce that LFE v10 now goes live!

This update was mainly for security-reasons but while being at it, I added a whole new design (porting the old one just wasn't feasible anyways). A forum-update will follow as well; however, no precise date has been scheduled yet.

Either way, we're now entering the stage of tracking and fixing bugs. When you see one, you'll shit bricks please report it here so it can be squished. Ruthlessly. Mercilessly. Apocalyptically.

All for now, yo :p
