thanks for working so hard on the site for us !
avatar
Sweet!

Well I do have some good news, albeit a little bit technical. But I did manage to uncorrupt the database so that it will allow us to have more than one theme. The good news is that I will no longer have to do design updates on the live site. For quite some time MS has received no refresh due to some of these issues, so i'm glad that things will be a little easier going forward.
avatar
That may very well end up being what we do. I'm actually pretty sure you can do a MyBB -> MyBB import too. I might try that to get the posts and the users, and all of that, and just redo the setup of the actual forum itself.
avatar
If the update makes changes to the database, circumvent would be upgrading separately, then importing.
avatar
Ouch. You try a whole new fresh install of MyBB, then export/import this database?
avatar
ooh, that really sucks Sad
avatar
We've been running on the same installation of MyBB, and actually the exact same theme, plugins, and codebase, since 2014 or 2015. Besides routine security updates, our codebase literally hasn't changed. i think it was one of the minor 1.8.x updates that screwed up the table in our database.
avatar
We have no such installation here, but we do have a development installation on an actual VPS somewhere, where most of our actual development occurs. The problem I'm running into is that I literally cannot import new themes because our database is corrupt, so even if i develop an update, i cannot make it live unless I want to edit our actual live installation.
avatar
@hans: have you tried running a backup test server in a vm to test themes and such? Thats how i tested stuff for my bbs Before implementing it. Sort of like a local live you can mess with, without consequences.
avatar
I wouldn't object to taking a look at least. Never make promises though.
avatar
@Guardian: Hmm I might send you a shout out at some point then and see if we can get this theme issue figured out. I haven't been able to work on anything without updating the live site because only one theme actually works on our installation, so that's been a little frustrating from time to time.
avatar
Tongue Whenever I can.
avatar
Guardian made a strong showing in the forums tonight Smile
avatar
Terrible with the design stuff, not bad at figuring out settings issues.
avatar
is bryan a member here Smile
avatar
Anyone here still sharp on MyBB technical stuff? We've managed to somehow corrupt our themes table and I haven't been able to create a new one to work on a couple of (*minor*) updates to get us a little more up-to-date. I'll look at it in more detail one of these days, but if I can avoid writing a script to uncorrupt it and anyone has more knowledge than I do, shoot me a PM!
avatar
okay yes there has been a couple NE sters this week, this morning i was looking at what Quinn was doing Smile
avatar
One for the mid and northern east coast.
avatar
Ya sorry, not sure what storm your referring to ?
avatar

That's a pretty awesome picture. As for flash in a night picture, flash tends to ruin them. I just put my camera in night mode, and that helps a lot, but it . . .
