2 July 2011:
The theme has been updated. This topic is kept only for the record. Please move any active discussion to the main Glest Board topic.
1 July 2011:
Happy Canada Day! An email from Jose revealed he was sick, but has just backed up the board and is likely to update today. The board will go offline during that time span and until I get the mods installed, it will not be 100% complete. Thank you for your understanding.
I originally planned to upgrade the board today, since I finished the theme and the mods were all tested and ready to go. Sadly, it has proven to be impossible, due to limited rights. The web install fails with a 500 because some PHP functions seem to be disabled. As well, the large install cannot be used because while I have a (very limited) method of uploading files to the server, there is no way to extract the files (not to mention that if the web install would fail, could this even succeed? Would render the board nonoperational unless the restrictions limiting the web install too were removed).
Thus, we must let the Glest team do the upgrading. I will try and contact them, and send the theme (though I could do the theme myself, once upgraded, if necessary). Mods would have to be installed after.
If anyone wants to take a look at the theme, feel free (requires a server running SMF 2.0): https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D6983676_8815923_64554
This is a notice that the theme has been completed and I am just doing the finishing touches of gathering the mods (note: some mods are not yet compatible, so there will NOT be the activity bar, at least not until the author updates it).
The board will probably be down for around an hour or so to update the version, which will take a long time to convert all the posts, etc. As well, the update will not be finished until I get all the mods safely added in, so until I change the name (and content) of this topic, please be aware that it is not yet complete and may have bugs. Until it's 100% complete, please do not comment on them.
I do not know the exact start time of this update, but it should be whenever my snail internet finished downloading a backup.
Edit: Ooh, had a good catch there too... While testing the mods, some time after its installation, the Bad Behavior mod, which sounded so great, started crashing the forum. We won't be using that.
Edit2: And it is complete. Uploading will commence shortly. Screens:
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Youtube tag mod was abandoned in favor of another, however, it doesn't use a tag, but just needs the link. Thus, youtube tags will NO LONGER WORK. To embed the video, just post the bare link (no url tags), preferably on a new line for formatting.
Problem solved, the old method with youtube tags will be continued, screenshot below.
