The SMFnew "downtime" discussion thread
Have the forums back. Had to make a lot of optimizations and wrote custom scripts to get them imported into the system I use.
Also wrote a couple scripts to cleanup most of the spam bots/posts which I believe was really slowing down the old smfnew

Sweet, glad to hear everything is officially moved over. Big Grin Also, it's nice to see support.smfnew.com back.

Are you planning to leave SMFnew.com forums on the smfnew domain, or will everything eventually be moved over to use one system?

All forums are remaining on the domains that they had. They are all converted over to the same system createaforum uses.
New signups are going on smfnew2.com

So many years later and it's still going on. From a previous discussion on the subject, I don't know how anyone willingly creates an SMF forum when there are plenty of better free options out there. SMF is the antique of the foruming world. Sad to see SMFnew still going strong when great services like IcyBoards die out. Sad

I did reach out to Icyboards owner didn't hear anything as soon as I heard the news it was closing.

So have decided to update my mybb hosting with https://www.createamybb.com now supporting MyBB 1.8.x features include full template support, page manager, custom domain parking, SSL  built in, and have a bunch of other plugins installed. Also will do free imports for Icyboards owners. And no ads for a least a couple months.

That's great to hear! I was unaware of any other quality MyBB hosts. With IB closing and ZB going the Tapatalk route, I hope your MyBB business picks up! Definitely an underserved market now.

Good, don't do it.

No offense, but I really don' get SMF's popularity still. Tongue
