Discussion Forums Updates

Postby anujseth on March 9th, 2008, 4:12 am

After the recent hack on the Discussion Forums, I was forced to update the discussion forum software used on the site.

YPOPs! Forums were earlier running on PNphpBB 2.1i which is extremely old and does not seem to be maintained any longer. I have moved to phpBB3 now.

In the process of doing this, the following changes have been done for the forums:
1. Registration on PostNuke has been disabled. PostNuke was used as the CMS software. This too will be retired in another day.
2. User registration is required only for the Discussion Forums now.
3. The forums itself has moved to a sub-domain for easier maintenance.
4. The forums will be made SEO friendly as well, allowing better indexing on search engines.

Posts in the last 2 days might be lost. Please do re-post the same.

Also, only active user accounts have been migrated. A lot of accounts were never used for making a single post on the forums. These accounts were not migrated. I apologize if any of your accounts were in this list. Feel free to recreate the account.

If you notice any errors in the forums, please let me know by posting below. There are over 5000+ posts, and it is extremely difficult for me to check if things are 100% correct.
