View Full Version : Forums Migrated

In case you've not noticed, we're in the process of migrating the forums to Vbulletin. Users will need to re-set their passwords in order to login and start posting again. If you run into any problems, please let us know at kris [ ] pcbsd ... org
Well done on the migration. Things seem to be working ok.
One thing that I have noticed is that links to other forum topics on the previouse system are now broken. It would be nice if some sort of 301 redirect could be setup.

I'm still trying to get use to the new forums. The old forum was actually a lot easier to moderate, then again that's probably because I was so use to it. :)
Anyway, if anyone sees someone violate the rules on this forum please be sure to report it.

Awesome, Galraedia, will do! I love getting the posts via email with the
option to reply from the client. Very slick :)

I've noticed a bug, if I click "mark forums read" I get this:
Your submission could not be processed because a security token was invalid.
If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.
and I noticed a second one.
after viewing a forum, I still get the icon that shows that there are unread messages in that forum??

Yea, this works much nicer now, only need to use a web browser to start a new thread. :)

I patched a bug that was being seen by certain combinations of browser/OS that would express itself by throwing an error when you selected "Mark all as read" from the forum tools.

you may want to look at it again.
firefox 3.6.2 / PCBSD8.0, still getting the error...
same in firefox 3.5.9 / Kubuntu 9.10....

I remember this CMS discussion board back in my anime/manga fever period I had back in the late teens. Oh men, those were the days. But isn't vBulletin a proprietary software that cost 200$~? May vBulletin have some authority over the PC-BSD forum? My only FUD is that they impede, whether by purpose or accident, something against the publication of the forum (but I really doubt that happening).
My question comes about from wondering why was vBulletin chosen as the forum's CMS from the multiple.
PS - I am still enjoying it.

Hey! It was chosen because it's got a module that allows email
subscription to forums. That way, we can reply via email, which is much
more handy for some of us :)

Oh, okay. Thanks! ;)
I'll see if I can put that in phpBB.
Oops, there already is MOD for that....
Well, thanks anyways.

I'm finally getting the hang of the new forum... Anyone know the smilies for thumbs up on this forum?
I see that the devs are posting much more frequently. That's a very good thing.

Where is the old forums post?
Update: Never mind. I got it, what I was looking for.
Congratulation for the new forum. I always love vB.
