I had to close the site for a couple hours tonight to finish a site upgrade. It was a fairly large update, but mostly behind the scenes stuff, not too much the average user will notice.

- Fixing a whole bunch of bugs
- Updating phpbb3 to newest version
- arcade installed (coming soon)
- profile wall (like facebook, can leave comments on users profile)
- activety/spy log (the site no tracks when you interact with certain parts, for example adding, rating and commenting on most content)
- recent activity apge and block on each users profile.
- Total overhaul of the points system, new points page
- started work on taggin system (coming soon)
- one can now subscribe to an entire forum, which will send an email whenever a new post is made in that entire forum... this is good for the more inactive forums.

See my profile for an example of the activery feed and comment wall

Activity log

Points page
http://www.canadaka.net/points

There was lots of code changes in the backgrouns, mostly in the forums, so PLEASE let me know if you find something not working. There are some cosmetic problems in the forums due to the update that I will fix soon.

So that's why I've been fighting with CKA for the past hour in vain,
trying to get in through Vive and ultimately failing.

I like these updates! R=UP

Found first problems:

Warnings don't show, and when you hover over your Reputation, it says you don't have any.

I also plan to totally re-make the layout of the profile pages soon too, for an active profile there can be a lot of stuff on one page, kinda a mess.

thanks for letting me know about those bugs, i'm sure there are lots of small stuff like that in the forums. It's a HUGE pain in the ass doing any phpbb updates when so many mods are installed. That's why i have left it this long, there has been 3 updates since I installed the phpbb3.

The spy page is only re-spawning the first post at the top.

It says I posted a quote to the Quote section 7 times now.

It rectifies and repeats the process if you refresh.

The link to your reputation from your profile (anyones profile) leads you to an absolutely wrecked half of a page.

http://www.canadaka.net/profiles/Canadaka/reputation

Which is a different link provided from the forum, which will lead you to a proper page:

viewreputation.php?id=66

   



Canadaka @ Mon Apr 20, 2009 12:54 am

thanks for the comments Mr_Canada, I will work on fixed all of those. I also just made some tweaks to the activity feed and recent points list, so that a single user can't dominate the list when they do a bunch of stuff in a short time span.

   



hurley_108 @ Mon Apr 20, 2009 3:51 pm

With subscriptions open to whole forums, would it be possble to get the option to get the text of the post as well? That would make it easier to decide whether to open the site up on a mobile device.

   



Canadaka @ Wed Apr 22, 2009 2:52 am

The warnings and reputations are now fixed.
The reputation link from profiles now works.

   



hurley_108 @ Wed Apr 22, 2009 5:48 am

Rep is only positive now, eh?

   



mtbr @ Wed Apr 22, 2009 7:01 am

no + or - :lol: :lol:
