Welcome to the New WoWRoster.net..and Server

Postby zanix » Tue Mar 31, 2009 7:28 am

:glad: We Made It!
The move was successful, mostly. :bash:

  • Any users that made 0 posts were lost...we are not sorry.
  • The WebLinks section is gone until we can come up with a replacement.
  • The new Downloads section is...nice, but missing a big chunk of functionality from the Downloads module we used with DF
    Namely multiple screen shots and files per download entry
    Plus it's a bit empty, namely because we are trying to figure out the best way to use this new system. Or if we should replace it.
  • The wiki is intact and has the same url MediaWiki
  • We no longer have a donate-o-meter, but don't let that stop you from donating!
  • ProjectsPro is now Tracker, but we haven't ported all of the feature requests and bug reports yet.
  • AddOn Authors, you currently do not have control over your sub-forums, we will correct this soon.

Here is the surprise, phpBB3...I know, anti-climatic huh?
We wanted to move to a more modern CMS/Forum and this is what we agreed upon.
The nice thing, though, is our interface designer custom themed us....a theme.

We think you will like the changes. :thumleft:



More on the downloads section

The downloads area is not going to be updated until we can figure out some issues.
The new downloads module we use is different that the download module we used with DragonFly CMS, as it won't allow multiple files or image per download item.

This is not compatible with the old DF based module and conversion is going to be tricky, unless we find an alternative.

We are working on a temporary download section in the mean time.
Here -> Downloads

not quite sure what you mean by that, as both the latest poster, and the original poster show up.

Well,
These :
Recent announcement - Recent popular - topic Recent topic
are shown on the front "Portal" page - they have the same functionality.

As always, presentation is different – we’ll get used to it.
Phpbb3 needs no introduction (but Whhooaauau - Ouaagh their admin interface) although I kind’a loved the DF CMS ;-)

This is sexy. Seriously. Looks good, nice new feel. It'll take some getting used to, and some tuning to re-align the downloads. Hey, though, huzzah on the new, cheaper location and a successful move.

Thanks to all of you that have a hand in keeping this site running, performing the move, and performing regular maintenance. To us "faithful" that use this app, this is a powerful and wonderful resource and community.

Dono if its more work for you guys, but a source sourceforge.net might take away the bandwidth issues and other hasle.

The "all integrated solution for phpbb3" would be clearer towards the less-the-average user - sourceforge.net, on the other hand offer some SVN advantages.

Anyway, you guys know what you need – just take your time.

Btw : wowroster.net just became a one-thread-forum ?? ;-) You could chose for a blog then ^^

Not at all, I just didn't think it was necessary to make a new post about our downloads section situation.

As for the download situation, we want full control over our resources...so sourceforge may be out of the question.
