This. Its definitely a step in the right direction for the time until we get the new software up.bone;n3546212 said:opening a thread in a new tab is definately faster for me
browsing notifications, messages etc is as slow as before

This is roughly when it started:thomas;n3546436 said:That's what I thought. But it seems to be an issue with the forum specifically. I can replicate it easily. And it appears to be a difference between what I see and what the text box here actually keeps. For example if I typo "type" as "tyoe", it attempts to correct it to "type", but visually the text remains "tyoe". When I start deleting letters, it randomly reverts to suddenly showing the correct word and auto correct also does no longer think there is something wrong. I have that issue exclusively here and on no other forum or app. Running Android 8, Chrome and the Google keyboard.
In my case, Google keyboard is not too bad, but swiftkey is completely unusable. Only on FinalGear, only since I wrote that post, and no changes after clearing cookies.RdKetchup;n3545870 said:SwifSwif is nownunusanow .
This was "SwiftKey is now unusable" btw, started acting up on finalgear yesterday.

THIS part means so much more than the progress right now to me.. the one thing I was afraid of, was suggesting something that you then spend time and money (well.. we are..) on and you just dislike it in the end.. Especially since I've only ever used it from a moderators perspecting, not full on admin.Viper007Bond;n3547140 said:I'm really liking and preferring XenForo so far.
Will there be any posts lost or will part of the downtime be another export of the database? Or is it even possible to hook into the existing one and convert that instead of first exporting, then importing?Viper007Bond;n3547199 said:
I'm 99% sure we're switching to it. I just need to coordinate with PacketCollison about when he wants to be around for the migration. There will be downtime while we do it but it'll be worth it.
The test import took 21 hours on my local machine but I suspect it'll be a lot faster on the live server.
