Here are some packages you might want to consider...

1.    KeyCAPTCHA for SMF    2.10 (Reduces spam)
2.    Anonymous Boards    1.1 (Works for everyone except admins) (Would reduce a lot of the trolling)
3.    Simple Audio Video Embedder (No more BB Code for embedding videos)

Post by: Don Seer on June 21, 2015, 06:24:33 AM
no actual layout changes on the test site today, apart from how the dubcnn.com thing appears

reviewed the links i posted above, collected all the ideas and information, proritized what HAS to be done versus the rest, being pragmatic and heading right for the goal, will circle back and fill in the gaps after

rough list of tasks

1 - finish final layout fixes including ad banner stuff
2 - do a dry test run of exporting dubcc data to dubcnn with dubcc only closed to copy the database to make sure no snags
    (and get an idea of timings)  dubcc will be closed for a hour or three, nothing more.
2a - testing move forum sections around (proved there's a nicer way to do this in the new forum software)
2b - test script that fixes links in posts from dubcc/forum to the new location
3 - upload this new version of the data over the test forum currently on dubcnn..

if everything goes well.. the final move won't be far behind

there'll be a post for "snagging" where issues are reported when you're using the new forum and a post for "ideas" of things i can look into..

priority is on getting the move done and not spending time investigating other things til its done unless they're standard features

Nice DubCnn - WestCoastRydaz killer game connecc bacc for the NWA movie. Good work Bro.
Title: Re: DUBCC/DUBCNN FORUM UPDATE COMING SOON
Post by: Don Seer on June 22, 2015, 02:32:50 AM
Uh, whats WestCoastRydaz got to do with it!?




btw new sections WIP layout.. comments please!


- main section
  - west coast connection (new main section for discussion of new west coast stuff)
  - west coast classics (main section as is with nate dogg section merged back in). anything RECORDED pre-documentary belongs in here)
  - dubcnn link thing (just a dummy board that goes to dubcnn)  

- another section - non west coast music stuff
  - outbound (non west coast, and and non-rap)
  - the studio (keystyle, production etc)
  - the vault (merge in album review and release dates?)
     - the swap meet

- Lifestyle section
 - the lounge (g-spot + train of thought + entertainment, movies and gaming  merged)
-  sports bar


so thats a  3x3x2 or 2x3x2 as the dubcnn link isn't a real board

yesterday i started a dry run, i took a copy of the forum as it is now, and started pretending i was doing the real migrate

this was midday sunday, its 930am monday morning, my pc at home was on overnight and its still going, but nearly done.

looks like when it happens for real i'll have to start this on say a friday night/saturday morning first thing, and hope to have it done by the sunday evening

that parts more hassle than i thought it would be.

I stumbled across the One Nation thread that I just replied to on there, why does it make you log in again? Why can't you just merge dubcc and dubcnn?
Title: Re: DUBCC/DUBCNN FORUM UPDATE COMING SOON
Post by: Don Seer on July 13, 2015, 01:14:34 PM
thats a test forum.. this forum will be closing and that will dubcc once i move the data from this server over and close this one :)

most of the posts on there are from 2013

so dubcnn is sponsoring dubcc, and it'll be hosted at http://dubcnn.com/connect

quick bump...

this aint forgotten

summer was not a good time to do this, plus its been dry (wet sundays are the best chance for me to get time to work on it!)

i'm working on a way to make the database convert to the new forum version happen fast. if i did it the way i've tested before now it could take over a week, i'm hoping to only have the forum down for a weekend - if that

i'd rather the forum is down for a little as poss and it take longer, than take it offline for too long

not done anything since the last update. its going to (have to) happen this year. sooner rather than later too.

whats needed is some really wet weather in the UK so i can't go mountain biking :D

not planning on it.. first one will probably be the skin thats up on the test site

same here shits too bright
will this update will we finally be able to post youtube and mega like normal forums?

i think youtube is a must. TBH i don't know, you can try on the test forum.

right now i want to focus on getting the move done and get "snagging" for issues with that out of the way.



i hear ya'll on the colour front. i'll get a dark theme like the current one done for launch.
looks ok on my machine at home, but quickly posting from my laptop and i can see how bright the test site is.

it'll be done before detox..  8)



btw looks like google has spidered the older forum 'test' data on the new location.. meaning google has already indexed a lot of the site before we're even there

i think it must be down to a few things 1) the format of the video at youtubes end, and 2) the link..

there are no options for the script.. i've enabled everything it supports for all kinds of video sites
