Forum software update
« on: August 28, 2015, 10:28:46 pm »
Kaltxì ma eylan!

The LearnNavi forum is getting a long-delayed upgrade to the latest version of Simple Machines Forum, which is the forum software we use. Our tireless smuk Tìtstewan, Tirea Aean and others have been testing mods and pounding on code for weeks to make sure that the migration goes smoothly and that the new version has a reasonably familiar look and feel.

The work will be done in the next three to five days and there will be plenty of notice before it begins. The forum will go into maintenance mode about an hour before we begin and the entire forum will be backed up to insure a safety net restoration in case anything doesn't go as planned.

More details to follow soon.

Irayo!

Txantsan! Sounds great!
Will this mean that I won't be able to get on for a while?

You'll be able to get in and post up until it goes down for maintenance. I don't see it taking longer than a couple hours on the day it gets upgraded.

Awesome! When the upgrade is done, you'll all get +1 from me, assuming the karma system still works ;)

No, seriously, I understand how much work this is, so hats off to everyone involved! :)

I remember the 'uploading to Eywa' screen from a previous update. Or was that the infamous server move?

Everything's moving and changing… As it's supposed to be. :D
I'm looking forward to see the result, which will be great for sure. :)

I would say, tomorrow (evening), after Mark has done a backup of the forum. :)

Well, the general steps of the whole procedure is:
  • transferring and replacing the old forum files by the new ones
  • Starting the upgrade
  • after upgrade is done, installing the themes and various modification
  • testing around, checking if no black holes appeared
  • Opening the new forum :D

Ok, the downtime is longer than I expected, but I don't mind since the job will be done correctly. :)

In the unlikely event you need me for anything during the upgrade, Tirea Aean knows how to call/text me.

I can set up the "Core" theme, that looks exactly like the old one, but it need time to re-edit their code. Is this a deal, ma Kemaweyan? :)
