Downtime
#1
Exclamation 
There are some critical software upgrades that I'll be implementing over the holidays as time allows. The user activity seems slower right now so it might be a good time for it.

Downtime should be about an hour if all goes well. This is just a heads up to all, so if you see the site not loading you'll know why.

So clearly all did not go well. Unfortunately there were incompatibilities with several of features. However there was a high risk software vulnerability and an upgrade to the new version was necessary.

The site is in a "bare bones" mode right now with the default theme. If you're not sure what all the buttons do, hover over them for a moment and a small popup should appear.

Some of the plugins that were installed will not work. I'm trying to fix them as fast as I can but it may take a while. As such, not all features are available at the moment.

And my apologies for the inconvenience. This isn't ideal obviously but it's the best alternative to being offline.

If you have any questions or want to report errors please do so in this thread. I'll do my best to help.

Shady, you sir are one of a kind. The work and passion you are putting in "Our Home" for the use of the "Family" members is remarkable. I for one truly do appreciate all of your hard work. I also understand you are trying to balance stuff you do here with real life and work issues. In that we should all be grateful, which I am for sure. Thank you again. Oh, the new look is awesome on my tablet, will look letter on the laptop.
Congratulations: You Are at the Right Place at the Right Time

Yeah Ryu, not intentional lol. Our old theme was not compatible with the new software upgrade unfortunately.

Once the more important features get ironed out I'll turn some attention to the design.

If the thanks button was working I'd give you one, Caper. Silly

Pls keep the current theme or go with a full black theme.

Agreed. 

Too bright but there doesn't seem to be a site these days that I can look at without some discomfort, been playing with my monitor contrast looks a little better.

I use to have a program that made every site white text on black I may look that up.

It looks very good on my tablet, but when I come to my MacBook, the white is "powerful" the blue looks very good. Shady, not withstanding all your hard work on this, but could the white areas be darkened just a bit, thanks.

I feel the same way. The current design will be tweaked and softening the harsh white a bit is a good idea.

Now that the old design is basically unusable, we can start from scratch with another design (yay?). But first thing's first.. getting the missing features and some of the wonky buttons fixed is the priority. Thanks for your patience, Caper. Hope you had a Merry Christmas.

Just a question shady - when you have a minute. Any idea what the number on the second line of the poster info box is?

<----- that box. On mine, it has the number of posts, and then the number 15 on the next line?
