We had fun ---- NOT!

We had planned to just do the OS upgrade last night but, the arrogance of VA Linux caught up with us. The nice Dual CPU, Hi-zoot, RAID 5 machine that we have run the BBS on for almost 2 years would not accept the OS upgrade.

Soo.. We put the BBS as a new install on a machine I was going to move the mail lists too. This machine is a 1.7ghz Anthlon, 2gb RAM and mirrored 60gb drives. I am unsure if it will handle the traffic. I will be working on the original server to make the OS upgrade and will move the BBS back there if need be.

I have a lot of work to do on the style sheets for the default view. I should have all of this done today. I'll be looking to implement enhancements from other UBBthreads authors as well.

Please, make any suggestions on style sheet changes or UBBthreads compatible mods and enhancements. Pleas, do not suggest things I cannot do, i.e. stuff from other BBS softwares.

Re: We had fun ---- NOT!

<font face="Comic sans MS">It looks good to me... Good luck getting the other server workin' again... Will probably need it with this sort of volume...

Might also want to check on what groups the forums are in. The GM forums are spread across the for sale group and the off road car group...

Re: We had fun ---- NOT!

We do a color change or sorts. Too much white! :-) I figure once Pat is done with everything, Doug, Tim, and myself can offer a lot of insite on some fine tuning of the board.

I already like the new look!!!

You can change the color themes per account. I will only modify the default account.

Re: We had fun ---- NOT!

I see what you mean on changing the color. Some of the default settings are pretty gaudy!!! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I think I chose the blues. Are there any more importable themes other then what is on the list?

Oh yeah, Pat, the speed is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much!!!

Re: We had fun ---- NOT!

Question..

You say you are going to edit the style sheets..

Can you make sure to copy the style sheet and edit it, I've taken a liking to the "InfoPop" one that's default.
