new front page
It doesn't feel like the same site now. :no:

somebody noticed! :D

we had to drag the site into the new "web 2.0" world, as the old one was faulty in too many ways to just patch it up, it had huge performance issues, security risks and not a lot of flexibility; the backend also was seriously outdated

with the new design we can now offer 2 color schemes, better usage of your screen estate, and the backend is now usable for those of our reviewers who don't know html, which is quite a lot of them ;-)

Looks good,

Any plans to "upgrade" the forums aswell?

jmke 5th October 2010 09:39

no immediately plans no, looks oldy?
no major gains in functionality/looks between vB3 vs vB4 in my humble opinion;

vB4 would be preferred for a new site, but I don't see the added value at this point in time :)

not so much old, but I think VB4 is starting to mature a little. In the process now of moving my gaming wesbite/forums to VB4 with a Joomla frontpage.

we've customized our vB pretty much beyond the point of "easy upgrade", that is also something keeping us back from upgrading ;)

From what I can tell, the Impex tool does a pretty good job of exporting/importing. Are you talking about mod's and add on's?

rewrite of vB code outside the plugin realm ;)

I'll go back to my hole now...:ws:
