Search is temporarily disabled. Need to migrate the forums to another host because the current host platform decided "your database is now magically too big and you need to pay us 3x more or move elsewhere".

Xenforo introduced "progressive web application" support, which is a fancy way of saying "we added more shit to break". You may have noticed random "page could not be loaded" errors; I've added some additional scripting to auto reload the pages in the event it occurs. The server doesn't show any errors, so troubleshooting it may take a while.

I'm noticing every post gives me an "oops, we ran into a problem," but the bullshit I post still shows up as posted, so the warning is more like a confirmation.

lol same. If I try to post again after getting this message, it double-posts:

Anyone else not seeing new posts showing up on the alerts bell up top?

Yeah, me too. The post you made that comes up in error shows up as if you weren't the one posting.

I'm rolling the PHP version back, should resolve the PUSH error. As for the not-loading pages, I'll keep digging into it.

Any idea for how much longer the search function will stay disabled?
Quite a while, I had to purge the database search tables. If there is something specific content wise you are looking for, you can append "site:forums.finalgear.com" to most search engines.

Well, alrighty. I hope the What's That Song section will remain intact as I still use it to this day. I'll try that other search method for the time being, thanks!

Using your favourite web search engine this way works better than most sites' own search function.
