The forum was just upgraded to the latest version of phpBB (from v. 14 to v. 19). Let me know if you experience any problems with it!
This is a discussion on Forum Upgrade within the MapPoint Desktop Discussion forums, part of the Map Forums category; The forum was just upgraded to the latest version of phpBB (from v. 14 to v. 19). Let me know ...
Ever since the upgrade, the forum seems not to "remember" me consistently and I find myself having to log in a lot.. it is just me? Maybe it is time to convert to vBulletin anyway..
I dont have that problem. I'm using FireFox as browser. Current version 22.214.171.124.Ever since the upgrade, the forum seems not to "remember" me consistently and I find myself having to log in a lot
A couple times already I tried to make a post and then when I hit submit it comes up with a log in screen.. it loses my post and I can't hit back to recover it. That's frustrating.
Anyway, I've been looing at vBulletin for years already and think it might be a better alternative.. I don't like phpBB support and in my experience it is buggy.. they haven't had a major upgrade in years but there have been many mandatory security patches.
I think it should only take me a few hours or a day to switch over.. what do you guys think?
While I'm at it I think I need to upgrade the server or at least definitely look into performance issues... the site has been sloow sometimes lately, not sure why.. it could be due partly to the Map Visitors app. I can start by offloading that.
Yes it is slow latest time. It used to be mutch faster.
There is another thing but I cannot recall since when. I dont see anymore unread post marked in a color as it used to be. A little annoying as I try to read every new post if I have a moment of time.
I think that will happen when you are not logged in.. you have to be logged in in order for it to know if you have read the posts or now.. or is that not working?
No FireFox log me in automatic. But after my post today I checked my link, and it was: http://www.mp2kmag.com/update/?id=11
I dont know where I got / copied this. I changed it into: http://www.mp2kmag.com/mappoint/discussion/ and now I see all new post again.
I'm not sure what the ?id=11 did. Do you know ?
The ?id=11 would not do anything.. that is just telling it to load the 11th newsletter that was in the database table where I used to store the newsletters when they were small and plain text.
Actually I have noticed it now too.. immediately after I log in I see the coloring showing which ones I have read but then after I read one suddenly it looks like they all have been read..
Definitely time to do something... I think maybe put the forum on a different server under the host
http://forums.mp2kmag.com and move over to vBulletin.
