Forum Update Feedback (v3.x.x to v4.x.x)

16 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi All,

The forum has just been updated to the latest version of IP BOARD!  This should bring some much needed changes and a fresh 'feel' to the way things work in our community.

Please feel free to post up your feedback regarding your observations, likes/dislikes, bugs, ideas & requests to this thread.

Over the next week we will be reintegrating the skins and status updates back onto the site.  Thank you in advance for your patience.

Thanks guys & gals!

Ronnie

Oh, I forgot to mention that there is still a fair bit of rebuilding the original database, gallery, comments etc in the background so it will be about a day before all content is back online.

Hi Zclubbers.  

You can change your themes via the Theme selection at the bottom left of the page.  

You can also change the background via the Paint brush icon at the top right of the page.  

We will be changing the backgrounds to suit the Zclub feel over the next day or two.  

Enjoy!

Love the new look, like you said a very fresh feel and much needed facelift.

Can't wait to see what the end result will be
Keep up the good work Ron!

Hi All,

Skins are ready to go. You can select your background options from the paint brush icon on the top right near your username.

Also LOGIN names and DISPLAY names have now been merged so if you had 2 different names, you will now only have one, You can change these details in your profile > account settings.

There are also new things to customise with your profile so feel free to have a look-see.

We are currently installing Tapatalk for the forum so it should be up in the next hour or so.

As the forum is still updating in the background, there may be some slowdowns. Thank you for your patience.

Ronnie

Thanks for the updates, Majestik.

I noticed that a lot of the existing posts have lost the attachments.

(I've been looking in the Parts For Sale section.)

Is this temporary?

Hi buddy. I believe it's due to the forum still updating everything from the old forum version. I just checked the progress and I'm surprised to see that it's still updating... Once it's all complete, everything should be as it was. Sent from my SM-N910G using Tapatalk

I experienced this issue 2 days in a row.

It may be related to this new update.

The following error comes up after attempting to post something on the forum:

-----

406

Not Acceptable

This request is not acceptable

 

-----

Clearing all Zclub cookies seems to fix this temporarily.

I've created a separate thread to track this error.

However, I've found that in existing posts (i.e. from before the upgrade) any links are now broken - they simply reference the URL of the thread itself rather than their intended target. Example broken YouTube link in this post here:

http://zclub.com.au/forums/index.php?/topic/8203-invidia-gemini/#comment-106330

The issue is slightly less of a problem when the anchor tag's text is the same as the intended URL (so you can highlight it, copy and paste to go there), but if not, there's no way of following the link anymore :(

Hi guys.  I have forwarded the above issues to IP Board tech support.  I will update you all once they get back to me (hopefully) with a fix.

Thanks for your patience!

Ok.. we have determined that the 406 is a host based error and the failed links are due to the IPboard forum update.  I have both parties looking into it further and I will update once I know more.

Hi Zclubbers!  

The 406 error should be resolved.  Please let me know how you go.

Hi All,

I am sad to advise that the a bug in the IP Board (forum) software has resulted in links not working :(  There is unfortunately no way to resolve this as a backup of the SQL was not initiated (as requested) prior to the upgrade.

If any mods come upon posts with broken links and are able to resolve/update the links, could I ask that you please do so? Just a request if you're able too..

Oh.. the external links can still be accessed by copying and pasting the URL into the browser.

Any ways, hope you are all enjoying the new-look forum!

Ronnie

    • Injen CAI

      Hey mate,  I've got the Z1 CAI installed, not much difference. I got my car tuned with the CAI and exhaust installed so not sure about the gains from the CAI. The induction noise is nice though lol
    • Which LSD to buy, OS Giken,Wavetrac,Nismo or Cusco
      By Quazar · Posted
      Hey mate, I dont know if this is too late or not but I've got the Nismo 1.5 way diff in my z34. It definitely feels way better then the stock LSD, it also has quick adjustment on the lock percentage which is nice but i leave it on the lowest amount (60%).  It clunks on 3 point turns but I'm sure all of them do. I can't compare it to any other diff though, but happy with this one.

    • 350z roof wont close onto windscreen
      By Yoshi1985 · Posted
      hey everyone, i was driving along and my roof came open so i pulled over and tried to close it but there is a 50mm gap and it wont come down any further. All motors work fine, straps are all good, just wondering if there is any way of adjusting the roof as it is sitting a bit too far forward to begin with and needed a clip to keep it locked in. I havnt been to a dealership yet as i would like to suss it out on my own first as i am mechanically minded. Anyone had this same issue and how much was it to fix??? Im in W.A
