Server compromised and forum update

Recommended Posts

Sirenfal    4027

The server the forum was hosted on was compromised via another site on the same box. At this time I don't believe any forum data was stolen, but you should change your password here and anywhere else you reused it just to be safe.

 

 

As long as I was reformatting that box anyway, I went ahead and updated the forum to IPS4. I copied the theme from another website I run and stuck a background because that's less eyebleed than a flat color. I may or may not make a new dark theme soon, I'm not sure yet.

Since we're on IPS4 I also replaced the old shoutbox with a shoutbox I wrote that's nicer.

Welcome back, please let me know if you run into any issues. This was a big upgrade and I'd be surprised if there weren't some problems lurking.

Funnily enough my OG login username is gone and now it's just "Legion" pretty rad. IPS4 looks pretty good!

One issue I have is that I can't change my avatar, the edit button on the profile pic only has one option.

Clearly this wouldn't have happened if you were running Gentoo.

I actually wasn't, this box was four years old from way before I tried it. All my other servers use Gentoo, and now this one does too.

Too bad grsec is dead :C

RIP Hardened Gentoo

I like the new design.

I'll try to list the bugs I encounter below:

SQL Query being displayed instead of members online today count.

Shoutbox in collapsed mode doesn't match the style of collapsed forum categories. I'm not entirely sure if this is by design or an issue.

Happy to whip up so new favicons and backgrounds if you'd like, Krysk. Glad the site's back. I actually quite like it!

Also, is there a way to change line-spacing (even per-user)? I've never been a fan of double spacing.

If you don't want double spaces in your own posts you can shift+enter instead of hitting enter for a new line. No way to change other people's posts.

A new favicon would be especially great, backgrounds could be cool too but I do love my dota waifus

Oh fucking ace. I realised it looks better once posted, the text editor appears to have a greater space - I can live with it, but the tip is welcomed xx
Sick, I'll give it a wiz tomorrow since I have some days off. Might take a look at bg's but if you're happy with your non-catgirl waifus (disgrace, what happened to you?) then I'll slate it for eventually. hahahahahahaseewhatididthere

I was actually thinking of doing a daily rotation for backgrounds, so if you want to make several be my guest, I'd love to see what you've got :D

in the old forum, there was a way to jump to first unread message in a thread from the updates list. Is there something similar for this version too? I can go to the most recent post but not the first unread.

Also the text as we're typing in the reply should be black / higher contrast.
