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

    • Engine light coming on too frequently
      By Newby101 · Posted
      Hey guys.  Was hoping anyone would be able to help me out here.  I recently bought a 2009 370z Auto about 6 weeks ago. Since then, I’ve had to get it serviced 8 times due to the check engine light coming on.  I’ve had all the Oxy sensor and MAF’s replaced and the light still comes on. Whatever is causing it is also making the cars acceleration lag a bit.  Its getting beyond a joke now. I picked it up yesterday morning and by the afternoon the light was on.    Has as anyone had a similar issue // have any ideas to check for??   thanks 
    • Solenoids either side under bonnet/hood latches – what are they?
      By IanzZed · Posted
      Hi Ausmo they are pyrotechnic solenoids. if you hit a pedestrian ( or anything hard) , they fire off and lift the bonnet up at the back to help cushion the impact of said pedestrian. there are sensors in the front of the car that sense when something hits the front hard enough.    
    • Programming key fob
      By Button1 · Posted
      For the record I have a 2003 Nissan 350z Australian delivery and I have successfully programmed a new key fob for the car after sorting out two issues. 1. The original remote I had operated at 315Mz frequency which I was let to believe would work on my car.  After having no success I purchased the 433Mz European version of the key fob and this turned out to be the correct one. 2. There are at least 3 different methods to program 350z key fobs depending on the cars country of delivery eg. USA, UK, Japan.  The one that works for Australian cars is described as Method A in the attached instructions.  Unlike the USA & UK cars the hazard lights do not flash during the programming steps.  To programme do this - 1. Close both doors. 2. Both doors must be locked using the small rocker switch near the door handle. 3. Insert the key into the ignition 5 times within 10 secs and remove. 4.  Quickly insert the key again and the doors will unlock. 5. Turn the key to the accessories position (not the on position). 6. Quickly lock both doors again using the small rocker switch near the door handle. 7. Press the unlock button on your key fob and both doors should unlock indicating the key fob is programmed. 8. Repeat steps 6 & 7 for additional key fobs. 9. Remove the key from the ignition and all of your key fob should now be programmed and lock/unlock the car. Note: I did have trouble with the timing of these steps.  I found that unless step 5 & 6 were done quickly the car would not recognise the key fob at step 7. I hope this helps someone.
    • Wiring for Audio in a 2004
      By victord683 · Posted
      Hi folks   I am putting in Pioneer Z5250BT head unit in my 2004. When I was removing  the 10 pin plug from the factory Bose unit it came apart and all the wires went everywhere (Shit!) . I thought it could too complicated to put them back in order.  When I have looked at other sites  to work this out the wiring they refer to doesn't match the colours that are in wiring harness.    I have the following wires   orange, red, Grey, Blue/White (larger wire which I assume is main power), red/blue, white, pink/black, Green. There is also a small Blue/White wire on a single plug. There is a separate line Green/white which is with the antenna and I can assume is for the power antenna. I need to know what these wires are and where they go on the 10 in plug. I have the Aeropro wire harness to plug into the 10 pin plug. I just need to get them in the right order,. Can anyone help?    Thanks
