:tab I got as much preparatory stuff done last night as I could so hopefully I can get the import process running and go to bed. It should run for about 8-10 hours. Then, in the morning I will start the process of checking forum permissions, getting all the settings correct, installing a few add-ons, etc,... Lastly, I will be trying to get the SSL stuff implemented. IF all goes well, I hope to be done before 10pm Saturday. If not, I'll probably go to bed and look at it with fresh eyes Sunday afternoon.

is this move, is it going to save our log in's ? not sure i remember my password... :giveup:
No. We are moving to a totally new forum software package. However, if you have the email you used for your account, when you are at the log in page, there is a "Forgot Password" option that will send you an email so you can reset your password.

You can do the PW reset now, write it down or post it up on the board.
When you come back, go to the thread where you posted the PW and there you go.

I suggest you use the same password as your bank and credit card log ins. :trust:



How about a guessing game as to when TWT is once again available. The person who guesses the closest to the actual time without going over wins a ride with Doug on his Z50.

Looks like the update went very well! I had to update my avatar due to the scale of the image, but other than that it seems to be working perfectly.

Thanks Tourmeister and all who helped for the hard work!

Hey Scott, good stuff. I'm looking for a "settings" button I guess. I want to make the last (latest) posts first like I had on the old platform. Is this possible?

It would appear that this is NOT an option on an individual basis... yet. Looking on the XF support site, there seem to be a lot of other admins asking for that feature. There might be an add-on out there that I can find which could do it. I will have to do some searching to see what I can find.

I haven't been able to determine why is happening, but Tapatalk is causing memory issues with the server. Lately, the server has had multiple incidents where TT was making MANY hits on the server all in one instant, driving the memory to capacity and forcing the server to terminate the processes. The server support folks went through the logs to see what was running every time this happened and it was always a TT process. It is not shutting the site down or anything, but it is likely there is some kind of glitch in the TT code and how it interfaces with the forum software. I'll be keeping an eye on it for now, but if it does start getting worse, I may have to uninstall TT. I was warned about this by other admins when I mentioned I had it installed, but thought I'd give it a try and see.

There is a new major release of the XF software coming out in the not too distant future. If TT doesn't step up its game, it may not work with the new release. So even though I don't mind having it installed, that may be taken out of my hands at some point :shrug: It's like they have a good idea, but they just can't quite carry it off. I know that if someone else came out with something like TT that was more reliable, many of the forum admins would jump on that in a heartbeat.

It like tt is aware it has competition and wants it's users back. A host parasite relationship that has to be careful or the parasite will kill it's host

The site works well on a mobile browser. I just managed to upload photos from my phone into a thread. This was something that Tapatalk made much easier before, but now it’s a similar experience. I can use Tapatalk or not since this software upgrade.
