Upgrade Outage this weekend
« on: August 21, 2009, 09:33:31 PM »
FYI, I'll be doing an upgrade to the Forum in the next couple of hours which will need to be in maintenance mode for a little while. It will hopefully only last an hour. 

Just giving everyone a heads up.  Thanks

The upgrade is now complete and things should be working.  Let me know here in this thread if anything is broken for you.

Thanks

Unfortunately nothing in this version but the forum has its margins on the sides back. Coming up in the future though we will move from 1.1.x to the new 2.0 version which is currently at RC1.  Once 2.0 goes stable then we'll upgrade.

Then we will probably install some new sexy theme to make the forum look a lot better.

I've looked around and found that there is a plugin that will give us spoiler tags.  BUT when I went to install it an error came up and informed me that it wasn't compatible with this latest version.  It would seem like this is just a formality (it supports every version up to 1.1.9) and they will probably update it very soon to support version 1.1.10 that we are using.  As soon as they do I'll install it here.

Well I found another plugin that is compatible.  It isn't as configurable as the one above but it does work.

"The Crying Game" SPOILER Boy George's title track is wonderful!

Simply wrap your spoiler text in Spoiler tags like this: [*spoiler] Spoiler text goes here [/spoiler]  (except remove the *)

And it will be wrapped in black and revealed when you mouse over the black.

The other plugin can actually add a button to reveal and has a toggle but this will get the job done. Let me know if this is the functionality that was needed.

Thanks

Nice!  Thanks, Lynch.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
