We will be upgrading the forums to the latest version of IPB (tentively scheduled for tonight) There may be some downtime of the forums and I just wanted to let everyone know. If we dont get to it tonight it will be done in the next few days during off peak times (over night EST)

I'm sure there will be a lot of things that will need to be re "tweaked" once the upgrade is complete so thanks in advance for your patience and understanding :)

The main part of the forum upgrade has been completed.

We will be sorting out the customised template shortly, as Mike says, thanks in advance for your patience and understanding :)

We are missing some smilies. :D

And when I was reading posts there was an extra set of links at the top of the first post that had three options. ??? [standard] linear

I clicked on linear and now the options are gone. How do you get them back? :)

The links Outline · [ Standard ] · Linear+ have shifted from the right to the left and are making the Topic title out of whack.

Well, looks like the new skin is not going to work, which I was afraid would happen. I'll be tweaking everything to get it back to the state it was in prior to switching to the new design a week or so ago.

Yep it looked fine to me too, just one thing to remember, the CSS and markup changed dramatically from IPB 2.x to 3.x perhaps that's whats causing the problems -- though I didn't notice any!

I don't know how many times I've clicked on My Assistant thinking it was View New Posts. :)

They used to be

EDIT: In case you want to check the look of the 2.0 buttons, I have a clean install of IPB 2.0 here:

IPB 2.0 == Fantastic.

That they pulled a SixApart and started charging on release day with (so far as I could tell) no indication that they were reneging on their "There'll always be the free version" beforehand == bad bad bad.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Except I was running a copy of the first IPB2 on my website as an archive for my forum before I switched to phpBB. As it was just an archive I never updated it and I believe it was IPB that was exploited the other day when someone used my site to run a DoS. They used 20GB of bandwidth in about an hour and at $2 for every GB over bandwidth on a 10 GB account I'm stuffed <_<
