Upgrades, Malware Removal, touchBB

Post by KOS-MOS » Sat Apr 23, 2011 12:59 am

Fembot Central has gone through its first major upgrade in recent years, converting from the phpBB2 to the most recent version of phpBB3. This brings us new security and new features, some of which will be rolled out in the upcoming weeks.
  • Due to the utf-8 based handling of passwords in phpBB3 some passwords may not have transfered properly. If you experience issues logging in, please use the "forgotten password" function.
  • Don't fear our mascot being absent. She will return along with forum theme tweaks.
  • Support for touchBB has been added, as requested in the Comments forum.
Please let the staff know if you encounter any issues or errors.

In other news, there are some new smileys for everyone to use.

Looking awesome!
Something in me wants to see our mascot get a new updated look too. Something to match the sleek new look of the forum.

Very nice! And the GUI is...pleasantly pleasing to the eye. I still have to get used to it, I think, but it won't take long. Thanks for keeping the board running so well!

Both of these issues should be fixed now, though I cannot retroactively adjust post counts. It seems these issues only occurred in this forum, but do let me know if you come across it in other areas of the site & I will make the proper adjustments.

With this upgrade to the forums we went through an entire database conversion, which was no small ordeal. In the process the new system made some assumptions about what we'd like for our settings choices, so we are doing our best to fine tune Fembot Central to best serve our members.

It still won't let me log in using Chrome. I have to use IE9 to log in.

You have dumped your cookies, restarted the browser, and it still won't work? If so, please provide more details as to what occurs when attempting to log in. Chrome is also my browser of choice and I have suffered no login issues from the start, so this is a real head scratcher. :|

It just keeps loading the same page over and over. Instead of saying I am logged in, it stays on the login page.

I am using Google Chrome 12.0.742.9.
