TWT will be offline 12/21/18 10:00pm CST - 12/23/18 10:00pm CST

I will be taking the forum off line starting at 10:00pm on Dec. 21st.

During this time, I will be moving the site to a new server and also changing to new forum software (XenForo). During this time I have to back up the existing forum database, transfer all the files to the new server, and then run an import routine that pulls the existing data out of the vBulletin database and re-formats it for importation into the XenForo database. Once the import is done, there is a mess load of site configuration stuff that has to be done before I can bring the site back online.

IF all goes according to plan, the site should be back up in less than 24 hours... I have done several test transfers in an attempt to identify and resolve any potential issues and things have gone pretty smoothly.


During the downtime, there will be a temporary page up to let people know what is going on. Also, there will be a link on that page to the TWT Facebook page. I will try to post updates there as I get the opportunity.

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Question

After it's all said and done, will it forward us to the new url when we attempt to visit the old twtex site?

No, it will be the same name. No forwarding going on. Different IP address, of course.

Or, for now you can just use the www.twtex.com and it will get you to the main forum page. I may add a homepage later, similar to what we have now.

Since that page may not exist with that exact name, the safe way will be to go to www.twtex.com to start with and re-bookmark the new main page of the forum listing.

Oh no, this is change. I think it’s been proven that there are only a few types of “good” change. New software isn’t in that list. Please let it work and look exactly the same.

I am absolutely done with tapatalk. Yesterday I was bombarded with banner ads in the posts. I love thier gui and ease of use, but I'm not going to stand for that.

I hope the new system is designed better for mobile platforms, as the legacy system does not play well with my mobile phone.

Here's a preview of what the site will look like initially.



Once the transfer is complete, I will be making a few changes to the organizational structure, nothing major though.

I will be adding some "add-ons" that will improve the features for users.

There is no need for a mobile app with the new forum software. It automatically detects your screen size and adjusts accordingly. Here is what it will look like. I shrank my desktop browser so the image is still big compared to a phone screen, but the format will be the same.



and here is what it looks like if you click the triple bar option thing in the upper left corner.

Scott, looks good. I see the all important new posts button on the right and left sides. Easy access from either side. I see you have added more screenshots as I am typing this

Yes , tapatalk is a mess now. Always used this native side except for when I want to post pics.

Thanks for your hard work scott. will be sure santa makes a visit to the donation bin just like last year.

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
