WCC 'Yabb SE' Upgrade Coming....
« on: October 01, 2002, 03:40:47 AM »
OK.... i've been doing some investigating since my last post

I hope to upgrade WCC to Yabb SE PHP/MySql what this means is...

- WCC will be moved to www.igangsta.com  (www.dubcc.com will also work)

- WCC will be faster in many ways from loading to searching etc

- The new script compresses output. This means WCC will use around 1/3rd less bandwidth than it currently uses. (the limit is 30 gigs, we're shifting about 32 gig a month - i pay when it goes over. it will drop to around 15 from reports i've seen :) )

- WCC will not lose any of its 'history' (e.g. Old Posts)

- Users will have the ability to create polls (yippee)

- People will be redirected to the new location via a page which will also contain the new rules of wcc (we discussed these a bit before) - forum template will also contain a link to rules

- I want to fix the header at some point (the layout and its colours are not up for change)

- WCC will be less prone to data errors because forum data is stored using an SQL database

- WCC will be faster to backup (good for me)

- foreign users can switch the language, but they still have to post in english

- At the moment yabb se (like yabb cgi/pl which we use now) doesnt support 'extra' smileys, but as its being worked on (unlike yabb for which the project is frozen) this may come as a feature in a future upgrade.

- the board software is free.. which means we're legal (i refuse to pay $200 for vbulletin or ubb)



only thing is... once we've moved over.. we cant go back ;o


ps

Dont worry, i'm gonna practice first + backup wcc first so dont fret... wcc will not get lost :)



old thread here for what was talked about what I planned to do before.

The thing i want to fix with the header is where it changes when u move the mouse over the 'west coast connection forum' text. I just want it to act like a normal link.

I still have the original .PSP file with all the layers and transparencies from when I made it. If i chop it right i can do what I want easily.. i think :)

update: i managed to get a 'test' version working on the server....

next step (mayb tommorow) is a practice upgrade run with an old copy of wcc

only problem so far... the buttons that come with it are straight WACK so i'mma have to sort something out.
