We're back, we've moved to dubcnn.com/connect
« on: April 19, 2017, 09:46:18 AM »


this is finished enough that we can use it. i'd rather be improving it in place, than forever getting it ready and you guys not using it!


  • Forum upgraded to new, current generation of software. This included a do-over of the layout
  • Forum moved to dubcnn.com
  • Forum reorganised into 3x3x3 as follows:
  • Newly created West Coast Connection Section is now for discussion of current / new west coast releases. I moved some posts over to kick things off.
  • Rule of thumb, keep it under 10 years.
  • West Coast Classics is for dicussion of old releases, ruthless, death row, 2 Pac theories etc
  • Main section includes a link back to our sponsor, dubcnn.com
  • A new section created to house The Vault, Outbound and The Lab  (was The Studio), called this Elements for want of a better name..
  • Sports has been merged with Entertainment & Gaming.
  • Nate Dogg memorium forum has been merged wtih West Coast Classics


i know there are colours on the login page to fix, and smileys appear a bit broken.. and the video addon is gone (for now)
but i'll get it all working :)

i also dont like the menu colours, and some stuff on the side of profiles isnt too nice either.

broken stuff first, nice stuff, during those fixes or after!"


if anything is broken please reply.!

other things that need fixing..

- links in posts aren't obviously links
- box & colours around the "topic summary" when replying

I got 1 suggestion so far.  Fix the avatar situation cause its difficult putting an avatar & the imagehost link to make it happen & none of them work at all.

few more glitches

- neither the css or html tests linked at the bottom pass the tests - lol
- if poss split the theme name this was based on link, and the dubcc part at the bottom of the forum (that can be used to reload the page)

looks like not all links to posts within the forum got updated...

example: http://www.dubcnn.com/connect/index.php?topic=326772.0

(any link to a post on dubcc in a post should have been updated.. things like the vault index were updated)

- when you send a pm the "message sent" text box could do with better colouring.

Hello Don Seer, you have 87 messages, 0 are new.

this seems a bit silly when theres a messages area in the top buttons bar now.. so will probably remove/alter it
and shunt the  'list most recent' to above the forum

yeah its on the list :)

you end up here.. i'm not sure if dubcnn uses a CMS or not these days, i'll have a quick poke on the ftp :)

i'm not sure if i have a login, or one with permission for the dubcnn CMS.. i'll look into it :)

(i think i can hack the dub database to give myself access :D:D but i'm at work, so can't do it now..)


edit: i found the reference in the dubcnn database and hacked it direct.. works now.. who needs a user login eh? :)


btw also need to update the vault index on dubcnn which isn't part of  the CMS

The forum needs work. If it was up to me, there would only be one West Coast section instead of two.

Great update, the forum is more fast and stable.

But what about The Vault index? It's been down for a long time and now the thread is blocked. What's the reason?

Thanks. Keep up the good work. ;)

i halfway agree, considering we don't have enough activity for this .. but let's see how it pans out first

we decided this is a post a couple years ago (i kept links / made notes)

problem is. we had a problem where

1) people moaned about people being stuck in the past flooding the forum and 'new' posts/artists not getting their shine
2) people stuck in the past, being stuck in the past.

1. those people can't moan anymore
2. those people have a valid place to wallow in the past :)

i think these benefits outweigh the inactivity side of it. if "west coast classics" is busier it does mean "new" posts dont sink in the "west coast connection" section

Great update, the forum is more fast and stable.

But what about The Vault index? It's been down for a long time and now the thread is blocked. What's the reason?

Thanks. Keep up the good work. ;)
yeah the thread was so big it wouldnt load with the old server/scripts.

i havent touched it, i believe Jome maintains the index, possibly also keeping it in sync with an html page on the dubcnn site.
