Its long overdue, I've put it off for long enough, but very soon we will be undergoing a massive update of the site to Invision 4.

Invision is who we use for the forums and main components of SAU. Some addons are 3rd party (timeslips, spy, trader ratings, etc).

The version of Invision we're using is no longer supported at all and the few bugs I've raised with them lately have not been fixed.

I've been testing the process of upgrading on an external development server and it is very solid but also seriously time consuming with the latest test update of BASE forums functionality taking several hours.

The soft date for initiating the update is this Friday at around 7pm.

Things you need to know;

  • Things will be a little different when you first log on after the update.
  • The update is worth it with many very positive features being added.
  • We'll be starting with a single theme initially but will be settling on a second (dark) theme in the weeks following the update.
  • There will be hiccups! We request that you stay patient and log your bugs and problems in this thread.
  • Supporter options (subscriptions) will be disabled from mid week (Wednesday) and will likely be the last feature to be updated (as we will be migrating subscriptions to a new system to work with Invision 4.)

Ask questions in here.

Thanks.

I might be missing something but with the view unread content feature, it is showing each reply to a thread not just the thread title itself... eg: the whoretown thread is filling up results with each reply not just the one result.

Any idea's how to customize so it is like the old "view new/unread content" so it only shows one result per thread and more then the past hour?

The big issue ongoing atm is that search isn't indexed which means that things that use search (new/unread) might be operating at 50% until the indexing is finished.

Update looks good & no issues on my end. Of course it'll take some time to get used to. But overall top update.

@PranK hey man.. good job on the update however the top AdSense banner isn't responsive so on mobile when you hit the hamburger menu it doesn't come up.. instead you need to scroll all the way to the right.

Google offers full responsive banners now, so you don't need 2x sets of banners like in the past and switch between them at certain breakpoints.

Yep, I'm awaiting new ad tags from our agency, hopefully this will be sorted today. :thumbsup: Thanks for letting me know!

I can't seem to load this page on Edge at all.

 

Just attempts to load SAU.com.au/forums over and over then gives up saying the page can't be loaded or "there is a problem with this webpage"

Works fine in IE, Chrome, FF.

 

Dunno if reported yet but hey now it is!
