Thanks Kevin -- jury is out as to whether I'll be able to pull this off in time for the new year, but that's the goal...

Phew! Just spent the morning dealing with a very close call, almost brought the house down... :goofysca:

Here's a sneak peak at things to come, still rough --

http://www.tonmo.com/cmps_index.php

The main "post" there in the middle will be a news-ish type area, where only certain users (i.e. moderators/scs) can post hot items. This is still being worked out.

OK, here are two problems I have not yet been able to overcome, despite more hours than you'd care to know in effort:

1) Avatars not associating properly with users

2) Attachments not associating properly with posts :-(

The good news with attachments is that they DO show up in cases where there was a note that had the attachment linked to from within the post using the IMG tag (to make it show up on the page).

If you have some "classic" posts with attachments and you want them to be preserved, you can help me out by going to your post, clicking on your photo attachment, copying (CTRL-c) the URL for the image, and then editing your post, and pasting (CTRL-v) the URL in your post, and wrapping the IMG and /IMG tags around it (in brackets [] ).

For avatars, I'm afraid we're all going to have to select new ones once the new site is finally ready...

:heee: ........ :oops:

Folks,

We'll be making the cut-over sooner than later, most notably because I'm not going to do another import of users --- so anyone who is joining TONMO.com at this point won't make it to the other side, until I get the other system running.

...I intend to do another update of posts/threads so that we don't miss any discussions.

While the changeover may happen soon, the tweaking / enhancements to the site experience will continue.

You may have noticed the "query failed" message on the homepage, not sure if that can be fixed, or whether we just cut over instead.

Re: the OCTO DB, I tried to get it going but was not successful. This shouldn't be *too* hard... but it is when you're not a developer... :bonk:

Thanks for hanging in, we'll get there!

Problem overnight, I had the site going fine (relatively so), but then it seems my hosting provider responded late to my earlier request for help, and while I slept half the database was obliterated...

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Let's see what today brings!

Thanks Carol! Trying to restore an instance of the database from 1pm yesterday, fingers crossed...

Once we do that, then I have to re-do all the work I did yesterday from 1pm to 2:30am in order to get it functional again. :bonk: It should be a bit quicker than last time; it's easier the 2nd time around... not sooner than tomorrow, I'd imagine...
:sleeping:
