        That said, I am still having occasional hangups and the average loading time per click is still more than in practically any other current forum software..

          I still want to switch to XenForo though which I like a lot better than vB. I have a test site nearly working -- just needs some server configuration changes for pretty URLs to work.

                Great to hear that Quiky is alive and kicking, the speed boost is definitely appreciated. As is your work Viper.

                  Came here to say the same thing. It feels fantastic to be visiting multiple times an hour again (as opposed to once a day).

                      You can goof around on http://beta.fpsportal.com/ if you want. The data is from an older backup (so data from the past X weeks is missing), it's not fully configured to how I'll want it in the end (I don't want to spend forever tweaking a test site), pretty URLs aren't fully working, etc. but it'll give you an idea how the new forums will look and work.

                        1.) First test-thread needs approval ("Awaiting approval before being displayed publicly.") - will mods be there or will that have to be disabled/modified? (Edit, same for replies to existing threads)
                        2.) PM inbox almost full notification uptop states literally "{username}:" instead of .. well my username

                        3.) Should we make a separate thread for actual XF feedback? We probably should. Should it be here on or the test board though..?

                          1) Approved. Not sure why it went into moderation.

                          2) Yeah, that was vB style. Disabled notifications for now.

                          3) Make a new thread here please, but don't be too picky. As said, it's mostly for testing the successful import of all of our content and general XenForo testing. We'll worry about configuration after the real import.

                              So far I'm still having the biggest of all issues that I can't post because everything gets moderated.

                                forums were down all day yesterday because of database migration, yet still on vBulletin?

                                  Attaching images fails due to wrong permissions for the attachment directory on the server.
                                  Battered and weary after the craziness of the 1960s, the self-righteousness of the 1970s and the greed of the 1980s, I want to go home again, oh, so desperately - home to that land of drive-in restaurants and Chevy Bel-Airs, making out and rock 'n' roll and drag races and Studebakers, Elvis and James Dean and black leather jackets. Not that I ever owned a black leather jacket.

                                    Server was moved. I think the attachments are disabled now, they will be on the new software too. Too much storage waste.

                                      Quily is working on moving us to less expensive hosting. Once it's all working, we'll migrate to XenForo.

                                          How do you edit your signature on vB5? I've searched everywhere in the profile and settings screens, can't seem to find it.
