Reverted to IP.Board 3

Recommended Posts

Sorry about the few days of lost content but IP.Board 4 was clearly not up to the job.

 

Two points specifically:

 

1. Due to their implementation of search, search engine spiders were killing site performance. This was the main problem.

2. They dropped features we need and use, namely BBCode (very handy for a programming community) and Mark Solved (their Discussion forum style is not a replacement).

 

To the handful of members who signed up in the last few days, sorry but you will need to sign up again. I promise your experience on this site will be better than it was before.

Personally, I don't know why the site was "Upgraded". I never had any problems. Only issue I had was the annoying double space when you did a quote.

IPB 3 is old and unsupported. No updates, no improvements, no fixes. We need to move to something that's still actively maintained. IPB 4 is the best candidate but apparently there are some issues we need to work out with it first.

I personally liked many of the design changes. And was happy to see the


tag bug go away, as well as the double space issue. Of course, there were many things I would have needed to adjust to and some that I'm still trying to repress.  :happy-04:
