As mentioned in this topic
, I will rebuild the forum.
ALL posts will migrate to the new forum.
Here's whats currently going on:
Things to do
- Update to latest phpBB
- Fix the private message bug
- Improve forum performance (can be slow often)
- New template
- Remove portal
I think there isn't any useful information to put onto the portal. Therefor going to remove it, which means 1 less click to the forum! If you think we should keep the portal, then let me know :)
- Remove unnecessary mods
I will most likely also remove the gwBBcode functionality. Reason for this is that we don't use it, and seeing as Guild Wars 2 is coming up, I don't think we will use it in the future. Removing this might give a slightly boost to loading pages, as the parser doesn't have to read out the posts.
Currently, I have tried the to-do list on a mirror server. It seems all of the things above worked out nicely.
I will try and see if I can put the new forum online later today.
The only issue I'm currently trying to address is that with the migration, the current avatars aren't restored. Not sure why. :beaten:
Any suggestions are welcome!! What would you like having changed?
