Forum Upgrade but need your feedback...

Postby ls57tiger » Sun Aug 28, 2016 2:53 pm

Yes, it is that time again. The forum needs to be upgraded to the latest and greatest.

There were a lot of changes since I last upgraded so I was skeptical that I can do a clean upgrade and not lose all the data during the upgrade. Instead of doing the upgrade here, I created a test forum. There I had played around with new themes and tested the new features. So now it is your time to do the same and would like your feedback on it. Remember with the new version, all the current themes we are using here are not available. I had put 3 new themes for you to check them out. Also if you are a new user created after August 8th, 2016, then you will need to re-register on the test forum.

New features:
- Improved security (original forum is out of date now and no support)
- Soft delete (Posts and topics can now be removed from public view without being permanently deleted)
- Improved Global Announcements, Team Page, Contact Page
- Responsive Theme (all the new themes will adapt to all devices... so be sure to check it out with your phone and/or tablet)
- Notification System (Easily configure how you prefer to be notified about various events, such as when you are quoted in a post)

So please check out the test forum. then come back here to post your feedback. Thanks!

I really ike it actually, though the avatars being on the right is kinda offputting.

Looks interesting. The darker tones to the background are a bit jarring (I'm currently using the eTech layout)

Yes the avatars should be on the left.

I really like the eTech layout here too. I can't seem to find one that's similar in the other forum yet. It will be in the future I assure as it gets more updates.

Also I will add the mini chat feature back too. I have seen other extensions that's pretty neat like static pages and auto join group base on your post count. So you don't have wait for us to add you to JoJo Elites. :joseph2

Also when we do switch over, anyone who is good with graphics can help come up with a new logo. I attempted on the test forum... that was the best I can do. I really like the logo here unfortunately I don't have the original file. It didn't look as good on the dark background.

The prosilver theme looks great. I like the lighting. Could use a banner though.
