Site Improvements:

Please note:
Tonight, between 8.30pm & 11pm we will be switching servers.
As a result, you may experience some difficulties “Accessing” or “Making posts” on this site. I apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Robert Lambie

Update:
Hi all, it's Robert #2 here, just an update to let you all know that the move over to the new server seems to have gone ok, tho it did take a little longer than I'd hoped. all you're bookmarks and the like should automaticaly link you to this front page for the moment (you'll notice that the URL has change at the top of your screen) but fear not this will change back in the next couple of days and all your bookmarks should be ok....

all *SHOULD* be well with the setup here, but obvoisly there will be teething issues since I've just moved to a new server, if you hit any snags you can either PM me on the board or PM rob lambie.

good luck everyone!

i would be interested to see what everyones veiws on the general speed of the new server is?

viewing profiles is somthing Rob did a while back, there's a group you need to be a member of to view profiles, as of some time ago it's only got rob and mike in it. I'm sure Rob will be sorting out who should be in that group some time :)

as for the demos, that's a problem caused with the fact that they link back to www.uksignboards.com/........ this is a problem cos the demos are now on this server, which as yet isn't named www.uksignboards.com I'll have a look at fixing up a temperory fix for that as soon as I get a min. should be some time in the next hour or so.

right, I've updated the scripts that link the old site to the new one, so as of now all you're bookmarks should work ok, and the links from one story to another seem to be working fine as well.

let me know if anyone finds anything else for me to fix :)

Hi,

I was just looking to do a search, on a topic that was running a short while back. but alas the search tool doesn't seem to be working!

on further investigation, it seems it does work but only for posts made after the server switch. Any chance of getting this back again as i use it quite a lot!??

doh, I knew there was something I was meant to do ;)

I didn't copy the indexes over from the old server, and so the new server can't find any of the old posts in the indexes. I'll try and fix that up for you this evening. oops, and sorry for the delay :oops:

Robert, A BIG THANK YOU for the continued work you do on the site to ensure we are bug, hack and stress free! :cool:

There is little doubt that this is simply the best constructed and the most user friendly sign site in the UK.

Thanks once again Robert for all your hard work and dedication to us all.

more soon

mike

there we go, all the searches should be working again. let me know if there are any other little glitches.

(oh and sorry for the 45 min of down time, I didn't think it would take that long, and I didn't realise that it would disable the site. but it's done now.)
