2019 Forum Software Update

Post by bipolarmorgan » Tue Jan 01, 2019 1:08 pm

We want to give thanks to all our members and wish you all a Happy New Year this 2019!

Also, we have some additional news regarding a software upgrade we will be performing this month. There will be 2-3 days where the site will be offline unfortunately while performing the upgrade. I'm working with the moderators to narrow down an exact time frame, however, it is tentatively planned for mid month this January 2019! This new upgrade will get the forum software to the newest version, which will cause some changes to a few things. So far, during testing, I've been able to get most of the important add on features updated as well for the new version, ie: the thanks feature and some moderator functions. You will likely notice a style change to the pages, as we are working on updating YTMD graphics as well. Hopefully after the update we will see even less errors than before and I'm hoping it improves load times overall as well.

That's all for now, we will keep you updated as we narrow down the dates for this much needed upgrade.

GOING OFFLINE AT MIDNIGHT!

We've noticed some slow loading issues, and we are doing our best to investigate the cause.

Is the “thank” button gone for good?

Can I just say I am so frustrated?

For several hours tonight, I have been here on the YTMD.
And I keep getting the same Error Page that I used to get all the time before the update.

]I was hoping that the update would resolve this.
I did email bipolarmorgan about this with a copy of the Error Page.

No, the thank button is here to stay... look for the thumbs up icon.

We understand the frustration with errors and slow loading times, we are working to resolve this as quickly as possible.

Morgan I sent you a message about a few things but the thanks button is gone from the mobile/app version. Most of our users use tapatalk so its gone for them.

I didn't know, that sucks... I wish I could do something about it. I'll see if I can't email someone to see if they plan to re-add it or why it stopped working...

EDIT: Thanks is now working in all versions of the site, including Tapatalk. You're welcome.

None of the forums are updating with new posts.
It’s happening on both the app and the website. I’m not getting notifications of recent post.

I'm not seeing that issue, have you had any error messages?

I also just made some changes to the server in hopes of improving performance, FYI - everyone.

I just saw that it updated one of the forums I follow, so maybe the other ones aren't active. Seems like everything was more active before...just a slow day I guess.
Thank you.

No problem, I made some adjustments today to the server, so hopefully we don't get the max-connections errors anymore... ALSO page loading times have improved.

The Thanks is still working in Tapatalk, so I'm not sure why you say it isn't... unless it's specific to a particular forum.

Also, how did you post if this "forum doesn't exist" ?? I'm just trying to clarify here... because I'm not seeing these issues you are describing.

I know there have been some challenges since the update. I wanted to let you know about something that is working wonderfully. I access this site from my laptop, and since the update, I can access whatever people link by just clicking on the link. Before the update, I mostly couldn't see the links or attachments. So a big thanks for this fix!

That is a great question, I wish I knew how they were getting through. Somehow they are getting passed the 2 post rule or someone is approving their spammy topics...

Unfortunately their topics rarely show up under the "posts for approval" section. We disapprove each one that does under the "no spam" rule. They seem to be bypassing the two posts rule. Image

It's super frustrating but the mods are dealing with it as best we can. I've appointed someone to strictly deal with spam in hopes of being more on top of it.
