    New board version

    As promised, I set up the new PHP/mySQL version of YaBB and plan to switch to it soon. Find it here:
    http://www.linuxjunior.org/YaBB/index.php

    Please help me to test it out. Check out all the features, there are some new ones, like posting a poll. Have your username and password handy, you'll have to log in again since it uses different cookies. Don't worry about messing up the database, I'll reload it before we go live. Post any garbage you want. Two features that I added to the existing version won't work yet: custom avatar uploads (your existing one will work, just won't be able to change it) and the turning off the censorship. I will add these features later.

    Please add to this thread any problems, bugs you come across. Also let me know if you see any speed improvements.

    Re: New board version

    The question is if the new version is any improvement over the old one besides the technology it uses? Is it worth spending a bunch of time on tweaking and debugging?

    Actually, I don't notice any significant difference. That's why I'm hesitating to switch over.

    It was lagging a little last night, but now its about the same as it is here...surprisingly enough.......

    I thought that PHP kicked the llama's ass when compared to CGI

    PHP/SQL feels more.. responsive than the cgi one.

    The lag when changing pages has gone to never never land, which I love !

    I would say, switch now, and lets tweak the little things afterwards.

    Another thing is that I think the SQL version will scale better, which probably will be needed with all the new members we are getting from LNO.

    I don't think that would be a good idea. If we are going to switch, lets find the bugs first.

    I think we need to get more load on the test setup, to see how it handles the average load of this site... Whenever I'm on the new forum, there's only me and nobody else.

    But as you all know I'm a feature freak, and the new board has lots of features... so I think it's cool.
