Now that I've gotten the supporting software on the server upgraded, we will be upgrading to IP.Board, or IPS Community, 4.x very soon. I might try to do the upgrade tomorrow, depending on what happens with the house renovations. Most of the incompatible third party applications and enhancements have already been removed. If you have Notes, please copy them to a file as the Notes field will be removed from your profile.

 

Unfortunately we do not have a dark skin for 4.x. I will be adding a donation button and if we can raise enough money, I will buy one.

 

We will be UPGRADING TO IPS 4.X TOMORROW, OCT 13. I'll aim for early afternoon, around 1 pm Eastern time, that's 5 pm GMT/UTC.

Don't forget that the notes add on isn't supported and a few other things.

I think we may want to add it back in so people can copy over the data.

I didn't think anyone was using it. Were you?

I am experienced with creating forum skins. I would be willing to make one (free of charge) that looks similar to this one, using the default 4.x theme as a base, if you'd let me.

Yes please. Is the default theme for 4.0 hospital white or navy blue or something. Now what's that quote by Oscar wilde?

I was using it as a scratchpad of sorts. I kept meaning to copy the content but I hadn't done so yet. I think Leo was using it, too.

I'll check the database. The data should still be there.

If you are referring to the manage notes mod then I use it very often.

Ok, I'll see if I can extract that data from the database.

The Manage Notes hook has been restored. Please let me know if your notes are intact. I have a database backup if your notes are gone.

 

Please backup your notes so I can remove the hook and upgrade the forums.

TBH I don't know, because it was empty when I checked today and I don't recall I delete it when I saved it on my HDD.

Mine are gone and I know I didn't clear them out yet.

The upgrade failed - surprise, surprise. Opened ticket with IPS.

Any idea why it failed?

It's a bogus error. The files are all from the latest release and I changed the permissions to rw for all, which shouldn't be necessary. I suspect the real issue is that IPS didn't test the new easy upgrade system with people upgrading from 3.x. At this point, we're doing the upgrade on our test system. When we tried it the other day, it reported all the files in the package as being the wrong version because we were trying to install 4.2.4. We may have to install 4.0, if we still have it and then upgrade from there. I've opened a ticket with IPS to see what they have to say.

Of course. I let the forums remember my password on certain browsers so I don't have to type the damned thing in all the time. ;)
