I plan on running a forum upgrade sometime soonish. Not sure exactly when this will be done but it does need to be done.

I do pray that this upgrade (which is needed) doesn't hose the database (that would be data loss of posts, very bad.)

The upgrade has been completed.

No data has been lost but the gallery needs to be rebuilt along with a few other features.  Give us some time and we will get those back up and running.


Thanks!

 ;D I'm impressed.  It is hard to not lose data.  Good job.

Shouldn't that be "data HAVE been lost"?  "Data" is plural.  One 'datum' two 'data.'

I must admit the upgrade startled me.  I purchased a new laptop lately (the Windows 8 terror) and at first I thought it was something I had done wrong!

The upgrade looks good, and I'm so glad it's not my fault!   ;D

Um, for some reason I'm not seeing anything different.  Did some new subgroups get added?  What changed?

The look has changed, such as the colours.  A few things, such as the "Welcome to RhemuthCastle.com!" message, isn't located in the same place.  I've had a few challenges moving around (such as getting back to the home page) but I'll figure it out.

How odd!  Now that you mention it, I do see that the welcome message is in a new place and the thread icons look slightly different,  but the colors all remain the same for me, I still have a Home button in the same place it's always been,  etc. Are emoticons different? I see at least one that I don't remember seeing here before.

New layout is fine, but is there a button / link to Chat?   If there is, it's not showing up on my screen.   :(

Whoops, yeah, that will definitely need to be fixed!  I haven't used the Mibbit link in ages, so I never even noticed it was gone, but I wonder how many others might have missed chat last night because of the link not being there?   :(

And I just noticed something else is missing.  Didn't there used to be a link or something to the left that would take a viewer back to the Rhemuth Castle info pages--the ones with the pronunciation guide, Q&A section for KK, Zipper Sisters articles and other goodies, not to mention that very important Paypal donation button?  It's going to be difficult for Forum regulars to help support the website financially if we can't find the Paypal button to click on, I'm just sayin' is all.  Or is it still around somewhere, just cleverly hidden in a place I've not thought to look yet?  :D

I thought the "home" button used to return me to the info pages and the donate button, but it doesn't any more.  Maybe it never did, and I just thought it did.

The donate button is still on the info page.  My site link is to this page, so I get it first and then go to the forums or to chat.  I can't get back to it now once I'm in the forum, unless I leave the site and come back.

Today we all appear to be squares, rather than stars.  I hope there's no hidden meaning there!  :)

Until people who know more than I do about how all this stuff works can fix or reinstall the Forum home page header links to the chatroom and the KK website, here are some links you can use to get to those pages:

http://client00.chat.mibbit.com/?server=irc.otherworlders.org  This should take you to a login page for chat.  Enter your user name and type in the channel name #deryni_destinations .

http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/wiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage  This is to the Rhemuth Castle website home page.  (This is the site where the Paypal button is located, if you want to contribute towards Bynw's site maintenance costs.)
