We stand together, against the shadow.

I'm running some upgrades to the forum software this morning so some things might render improperly or seem unstable while this is happening.

The upgrade ran fine, but the TinyPortal software didn't seem to make the transition, so I'll be looking into that as time permits. Until then, the forums seem to be working fine.

Okay, I've got TP working again, but for some reason we are missing a "forum" button.

So for now, use http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?action=forum to get to the forums. Updating the site's look is going to take me some time, and since I've got little of that to spare, please be patient over the next couple of weeks while Nif and I get things sorted out.

Thanks,
Todd

I believe we will just need to reinstall it, and once you are at it, try to install the latest version, I will be making a backup of TP's information, jsut in case we might need it, this includes all articles as well. I was going to send uyoui the new SMF version notice when i checked the site and well, glad to ahve all this up. Grin

I am not happy with the current default theme you are all seeing either, the font is different and there are a lot of palces it does not looka s it should, but this was a somewhat quick and dirty solution to our problem, so I hope you guys enjoy still being able to see the site with a somewhat nice look.

in case anyone is wondering why we bothered to change the software version, here follows a not at all small list of things changed from the version of SMF we were using and the one we have now: New features and major changes from v1.0 and v1.1

It includes a few things useful to you: Personal Message labeling, Edit in line (without open a new screen), mostly. For us admins is where things get largely better, including image code verification at registration (so long spammers, or at leat most of you), new ban filters that are predefined instead of being made after a situation is found.

I hope this helps shed soem light on why we bothered. Wink

I think it's safe to say the rest of us have complete trust in Admin when it comes to decisions like this, but the explanation is still appreciated.

Well, given that the theme has gone wrong and things look odd to you guys i think it is somehow needed. But this is usable as is right now so no big deal, Todd will sort the issues the site has right now as time allows him and I will make sure it keeps running.

I have to say we have seen some increased spam traffic in the last week and with the new upgrade none have been found yet. Hopefully this will stay as is. Grin
