New Board Software Thread

Postby Tim » Thu Apr 30, 2015 1:21 pm

Unless something comes up, I'm going to be upgrading the board to the latest and greatest tonight. Once the new software is up and running in its vanilla state, I'll take suggestions for phpbb customizations and styles that can be found here.

For those that do not have it, here is the link to the emergency board.

Any idea as to the time more or less?

Just curious if the board is gonna be running for the draft/bulls game?

About what time do those end? I'm trying to make it happen on an off day when I actually have availability.

Guessing the draft would end around midnight or so but the Bears pick should be in by a little after 8.

Bulls game should end around 9, I'd think.

Not asking you to hold off or anything. Can always use the emergency board.

for the most part, i think parity with what the board can do on its current version would be good. in terms of stuff beyond that, "topic preview", "quick login", and perhaps "links open in external window" would be nice to have. the latter might be less useful, as such power internet users as we have here might know how to throttle that behavior via browser settings

I'm going to miss you guys. NSBB is like my default webpage when I open a browser and don't really have a specific destination in mind. I'm sure I will be frustrated a couple of times tonight when the page wont load!

Sorry, was that just an excuse to post boobs?

Also, related to the topic, I didn't see it on the extension list, but have seen it on other boards- Quick Reply function.

I might have to do this late tomorrow night. I have been roped into a 6am call and need to be reasonably sharp.
