GPL software upgrade.... & Other new things

Post by Jupiter » Sat Oct 25 5:08 pm

A message board upgrade is coming up in the next few weeks.

As I prepare for the upgrade, I will be removing the "Gallery" feature. It really does not get used much anymore, so I figured that I would get rid of it. If a new MOD that works with the new software becomes available, I may install it sometime in the future. Since it is being removed, I took the link to it out of the navigation above. I will save the images to my HD, but it will be nice to free up the 200mb that is being taken up by it on the server.

I think I will make the actual move next weekend or maybe even on Monday Nov 3rd since I am taking that day off from work.

I will use this thread over the next few weeks to keep you updated on what's going on.

Sorry for the errors.... I removed the gallery and some code was embedded in strange places.

Just curious, would the new upgrade support HTML 5 embedding? Like gfycat stuff?

A high quality gif service:

http://gfycat.com/GentleSmallHalibut#

It uses HTML5 video. I've seen forums around the internet with the ability to embed the HTML5 video, without having to convert it to a .gif, sacrificing quality/framerate.

I added the BBCode to the test site and it works great. In this case I just put "GentleSmallHalibut" in between the GFYCAT BBCode and here are the results.

I have added the code to this site, just so it get automatically imported when I do the upgrade. It will not work here right now because I did not add the script to allow it to be used.

I may try to tweak the code a bit so it resizes to mobile. Otherwise it was easy to get up and running.

The Portal page is not where I want it yet with the new software. But the MOD is in the beta phase.

Here's how the portal page looks on my iPad.

It's nice that there is just 1 template. No separate code/theme for mobile.

Checked out the site on my phone, looks good. I don't use the portal, so I can't content on that.

The Portal is a magical place full of wonderment & awe.
Plus it's extremely user friendly.

I see no need to use the portal. I like working my way through the boards by topic, not necessarily the newest posts first, especially not when I may need to scroll through more than one page to find the thread I'm looking for.

Basically, when I'm going through the forum, I don't care about the latest podcast (especially when I've already listened to it). I don't follow twitter at all. The polls that we set up are nice, but after I've seen it and voted, I don't really need that front and center every time I hit the page.

Short version, there's too much crap on the page that gets between me and the posts that I'm coming to read and/or make.

I'm taking tomorrow off, I always take a work day off on or near my BD.

So after I sleep in, I plan to start the upgrade. I have a list of things to do. So hopefully it does not take long to do. But you should be doing actual "work" while at work, right? I have a school thing to do around 5pm. So if I am not done by then, it may be down in to the evening.

We're back up and running. The Portal too.

But if you have a direct link to the Portal you should update it. It no longer has a ".php" on the end of it. So update those bookmarks.

Everything should work on Mobile now. There is no longer a "mobile" theme that takes over. Everything is "responsive" on the new GPL.

It's not a HUGE deal. GFG is having issues.

I cleared ALL cookies and browsing history. All my regular sites cleared out, except for GPL. So the issue is narrowed down.

Thank god. That one hour you gave us wasn't enough. I could use some more time! ;)

On a business note the portal wasn't working for me earlier on the phone but it's all good now. Whatever you did worked. You're a genius!

I couldn't see the Portal in Chrome last night but it's fine this morning so whatever you did is working. I was afraid i was going to have to go back to IE and see if it worked there :poke:

That's how it is here too. Maybe that's how it's supposed to be. If so, I like the old way better.

Portal issues seems to be true for me, too.
I'm also going to be the first bum to mention that ads have reappeared in message threads (at least for me).

Not a big deal by any stretch, but getting ads loading up at the bottom of each page again.

Everything (that I use) seems to be working nicely. The main forum page looks a little funky with the color/sizing/spacing changes, but I'll get over that ;)

It means:
a) you should probably go see a doctor ;)
b) that thread has been blessed by the Holy Spirit #Pentecost
c) warning - thread contains references to the Twins #DumpsterFire
d) lots of users have posted there recently

I will take a look at that when I get the chance.... I don't like it either, but it should be an easy fix once I get the chance to look at it.

Yeah.... The code I used to use to strip the ads for users that are "Golden" is no longer working. I will have to take a look at that problem as well.

These are "Hot Topics". Threads that have more than 125 replies. It's been around forever, but I just never made a custom icon for it in the past like I did this time.

Same here. Plus the adds appearing. But that doesn't really bother me much.

Drop downs work fine on IE11, but everything Is pushed to the left of my screen. Leaves a big space of maroon on the right. It is centered on Chrome.

I'm seeing quite a few things now. Randomly, clicking on a link in the portal brings you right back to the portal, or to the last entry in a thread, or the last read entry in a thread, or the very first entry in a thread.

I blame WisconSIN.

Yeah.... I am trying to fix the link to bring you to the unread post, not the newest post.

Not having much success so far.
