Title: New Pogo Rejects!
Post by: Libra on February 15, 2010, 11:49:52 am
As we build the new site, I will update you all as to the progress and the new features we will have. Right now, it's plain blue and white, like a standard SMF forum. We'll be getting a new and exciting new theme, though. It will still be dark in color and sleek and modern like we like it.

Hoffi and Watts have already created all the boards that are identical to the ones here. Nanners and Hoffi have installed all our smileys. I created the membergroups and Nanners picked the colors for the who's online list.

In addition to making everyone feel at home, we're going to be enjoying a TON of new features not available on SMF For Free.

For example:

1.  Personal Notepad. This is for you to keep notes in, save links to posts you want to go back and read, drafts for PM's, etc.

2.  An easy, two step way to add pictures to your posts. It's option to use this is under the smileys so it's easily accessible.

3.  We have a HUGE arcade.

4.  The notification that you have a new PM is HARD TO MISS! It's the size of Texas. LMAO!

Anyway, we're installing new mods (features) as we come across the ones we like. If any of you want to take a peak and suggest a mod, let us know! http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/

One of the great things about the new place is that we can do what we want, how we want and with no downtime. There's a community of people who are willing to help you if something goes wrong and tons of support.

As we do more, I'll let you know!

Harland, what version of SMF are you using?  That will make a difference in what mods can be used if members go there to check it out.  Some of the older mods will not work with the 1.1.19 version so be careful and the 2.0 mods are not applicable to 1.1.19 either.

Hey SShit (LOL)!  The mods compatible with the version we're using are 1.1.10 and 1.1.11.

It's not complicated. It's just time. SMF set up is about as easy as they come, and if you've got a decent host, a lot of times, they will walk you through third party set ups. However, they've already gotten past the "hard" part which is launching the forum - now they are just dealing with tweaking it - and that's not hard. It's just time consuming. Only advice I have is to not go overboard with the mods. It doesn't matter how fast your host is, how much bandwidth you pay for, how how much tweaking you do - if you add too many mods, you will ultimately slow down your site and members will be crawling. So be picky about what you integrate, and open a TEST forum to apply those mods BEFORE adding the mods to your actual forum. That way you can see how each mod will interact with the others. Otherwise, good luck and can't wait to see your unveiling.

SMF is the easiest forum software to use. I've personally used phpbb, vBulletin, e107, and a ton of other small ones and SMF is about the most functional and easiest to configure. Minimal code editing and trouble shooting and their package installer makes everything simple. Most of the time spent setting up any forum is getting where it works for you or your members.

Mods can slow down the forum, depending on what they do. Some of the ajax mods run more processes, which slows the forum down, while others that get hard coded are lighter on the system, others just change what is shown on the forum and don't slow it down much at all. The last forum I had, had over 50 mods, a few custom and 8 user selectable themes. Ran a bit slower than a fresh install, but not noticeable to most.

I've sent her emails but no response. Hippo gets texts from her on occasion. I just sent her an update on everything a couple of days ago.... However, I think her email was hacked. I've been getting spam from her email address so God only knows if she's even getting my emails.

I reckon I should text her.... I HAVE to let her know about the new place. I don't want her to show up here and it be a ghost town.

Harland is correct, it is not the amount of mods thats slows the forum down but rather the interaction between the mods; especially the ajax ones.  the best advice is to read the threads on each mod.  Any interaction problems (with other mods) are there with solutions.

Smiley Code in Pop-Up Window

The manual edits were driving me nuts, so we went with this one. Installed with the package installer, no issues. Works like the More smilies mod from a year ago or so.

I HAVE A VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!


For the first time since we opened this place a hundred million years ago (four, actually) I did not come here FIRST.

I went to NR first.

Today is a day in history. I have ALWAYS come here first thing before going anywhere else. ALWAYS. Since the day we opened this place. And, OR is always open in the first tab.

For the first time since we opened OR, OR is now the SECOND tab opened.

It's kinda sad.  Only kinda.

THOROUGHLY exciting, however!  --+--
