Post The Transition Continues --Report Issues Here
As of last evening, NexusForum is now hosted on THS hosting. The intent was this would be transparent to the users --to the degree there are any issues, feel free to report them here.

I notice the avatars didn't translate as of yet --I don't know yet if that is reasonably fixable from the back ends (Jim and Rob), or will require the users to upload them again on the new hosting account individually. Somebody will report here when we determine that.

Anything else?

Per his request, Jim is ambling slowly away from day to day involvement (tho his wise counsel and experience on issues will always be welcome), and David Wright, Sr. will have first line responsibility for making the trains run on time here, with the able help of Rob Hays (THS Webmaster) to assist on back-end issues.

At Jim's advice, we have shifted THS hosting to the same hosting company that NexusForums was using previously, with the intent of providing the same excellent forum performance/responsiveness that NF had prior to the switchover. So far, so good on that score, from what I see initially.

Thank yous are in order, and mine are most certainly offered, to Jim, Rob, and DW for their work in this effort.

David Wright seems to have determined by reviewing the last forum hosting transition that Avatars will indeed have to be re-uploaded on an individual basis. Our regrets for this minor inconvenience.

The other thing I've noticed so far, is my login does not seem to be reliably persisting indefinitely, nor the "remember me" autologin doing its thing, but rather I've had to login again a few times. Anybody else?

I'll check that as soon as I can. I've got to go offline due to big thunderstorm.

I think both the avatar issue and the persistent login problems trace to improper permission settings on the forum directories - phpBB is fussy about certain ones being open to user read/write and it can take a few passes to unlock the correct directories without exposing security holes. I am in comm with Rob about it.

I wanted to post a remark in the new "Feedback" topic under "Board index >> Forum Administration >>Orientation & Updates." But I found I could not.

My view of this page had this URL:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=802&p=7099&sid=c0424c794891d53f4aa9ad6631037606#p7099

At the bottom of the page, it said:

You cannot post new topics in this forum
You cannot reply to topics in this forum
You cannot edit your posts in this forum
You cannot delete your posts in this forum

Was I logged in? Yes, I was logged in.

(Had I been allowed to post a Feedback, I would have asked about "Profile >> Edit Signature," which tells me: "You are not authorised to define a signature." This is a problem that existed before the transition to the THS site, but it would be nice if it too were fixed.)

Until I can get the Feedback forum working properly, continue to post problems here.

My avatar has propagated, and has the correct number of fingers and toes.

Message from John Tilden last night on Facebook about 7pm. He says he uses the "green board" (I don't, but assume that is a different theme) and that he basically can't see/do anything when he logs in.

Has that been addressed yet? In the meantime, changing him to the default theme should probably take care of it (I'll go look at that now).

Hi Folks, with this morning's logon I am "in" and able to post (obviously) but can't figure out themes and user settings. I'm not "green" but the default blue/grey.

Not sure if my avatar works, I guess I'll know with this post.

I'm not super-worried about the themes, just wanted to be able to track the new posts and follow along. ;)
