    Hi All
    I expect over the next week Just Commodores will have a couple of random outages.

    This is background work to make the move to a new look and new forum software which has been well over 12 months in the making.

    On the horizon we have what seems to be awesome mobility one thing vBulletin lacked and the site will run in SSL mode.

    Cheers
    Darren

    Well I've used the site on an iPad and iPhone 7 Plus granted with no content at present no content.

    The end of the day it couldn't be any worse than what it currently is? :)

    Didn't mention moving to a XenForo based forum.

    There will be some big differences but the most important factor was decent mobility support.

    Cheers

    A few hiccups so far more to do with the person doing the migration (not the current guy).

    Just sorting out his access issues and will run an initial test to see what's leftover if anything and go from there.

    Fingers crossed.

    Quick update as to where things are at:

    A import was tested with only a couple of issues like YouTube and IMG tags, unsure whether this is something we can get around but promising none the less.

    Cheers

    You can't use any old links or short cuts saved on your phone.

    Site was down since probably midnight, during testing it took 5 hours, the sheer volume of data is just crazy, attachments alone near enough to 20GB.

    Searching is being reindexed now although I am looking at what they call Elastic Search which is meant to be much better.

    Not sure about we can go about old links but there's still a bit of work to do.

    PS This is me Darren, my own account is broken lol.

    My account is all good, blonde moment I think.

    Searching is still going through, last I checked it was at about a million posts so still a few million to go, should be finished overnight.

    Shoutbox not looking right?

    I know image upload is broken, I'll look at that tomorrow all going well.

    Not bad. As said it will take some time to adjust.

    I like the new look and feel. Much more modern. :D

    Have we lost the ability to "minimize" sections from the main forum index? And am I blind or is there no longer a "go to first unread post" button?
