  • Woah, let me get my re-org boots!

    Rightio folks.

    We're planning on a few moves and changes on here in the next little while.

    First up is a small change regarding the Help and Suggestions fora, which are to be merged. No threads will be got shot of, but you'll be free to use prefixes for suggestions, questions, fixes and how-to's

    Creative Corner (including RPInc & Fanfic Brigade), Spam Factory, Multimedia and Gaming will get jigged about as well, breaking up inactive subforums and using the thread prefix tagging system.

    Next is a tidy of the Brigades subforums. Our subforum requirements have in the most part fallen by the wayside, and the activity needed to gain a subforum is perhaps set too high. Inactive Brigade subforums are to be broken up and have their threads tagged, so again, you'll be able to find all threads pertaining to a particular Brigade but they won't have their forum containers. This would also mean the affected BMods will be losing their green powers. This is not a reflection on the members themselves, but purely a means of tidying up. We'll be adding prefixes shortly and would appreciate the outgoing BMods' assistance in checking that every thread gets tagged.

    Lastly, at least for now, we're going to be shifting the Love Hina and Negima forums into subforums of Anime & Manga.

    Please, discuss

      So you want us to tag every thread possible with what it pertains to? Cool, it's just like Danbooru.

      Everything seems to be green to me with all that hina. No objections and or questions to mention. Well so far that is. We'll see how things look once stuff gets placed.

      i merged the help and suggestions forums. but it seems the wiki section didnt like that as it broke when i did it and i cant seem to fix it. with the wiki being down atm anyways it isnt a big problem but ill ask style to take a peek when he can.

      sigh seems prefixes are acting up as well....

      /me is starting to hate vb 4 more and more

      edit: fixed the wiki subforum but still working on the prefixes.

      edit#2: im fixing them by hand and moving alot of post to their correct places so may be a few hours before it is back to normal

      why'd the wiki board break? There's nothing connected to it, so far as I can see

      Thanks for doing this, panzy. I fully intended to do this but got tied up with other things yesterday. I guess I'll have to do my share next

      If you would like me to prefix something, just gimme the greens for that area.

      Only until the job is done, that is. I am currently not interested in moderating random subforums.

      i have no idea i ended up having to nuke the subforum and recreate it. it was being odd o_O

      the error was.

      Fatal error: Cannot redeclare vbseo_prepare_seo_replace() (previously declared in /home/digizona/public_html/vbseo/includes/functions_vbseo_seo.php:54) in /home/digizona/public_html/old/includes/functions_vbseo.php on line 447

      the comment I made mustn't have posted...

      Sounds interesting. Good luck with internal site links though

      Yeh, that's looking increasingly like a manual job

      it is sadly there is quick way to do it

      "Increasingly like a manual job"?!

      Old URL example 1: http://www.animeb.com/forum/army-su-republic/7673-tha-bannana-song.html

      Corresponding new URL: http://www.animeb.com/army-su-republic/7673-tha-bannana-song.html

      Old URL example 2: http://www.animeb.com/forum/creative-corner/6873-animeb-dictionary.html

      Corresponding new URL: http://www.animeb.com/creative-corner/6873-animeb-dictionary.html

      Writing a redirect script for pairs like that looks like something I could do in BASIC, given some time.

      User input: http://www.animeb.com/forum/*

      Converted form: http://www.animeb.com/*

      Please explain in layman's terms what is so complicated about the procedure.

      I admit that my "view single post" bookmarks might be trickier, since the forum does not currently have the "view single post" feature. (Cannot we get that back, by the way?)

      its as easy as this

      file: parseUrls.php
      Code:
      mysql_connect("localhost", "user", "pass");
      mysql_select_db("animebDatabase");
      
      $query = "SELECT * FROM [Posts Table]";
      $result = mysql_query($query);
      while($post = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
      {
               $text = $post["post or whatever the column name is for the text"];
               $id = $post["post id"];
               $newText = preg_replace("/http:\/\/www.animeb.com\/forum/", "http://www.animeb.com", $text);
      
               $query = "UPDATE [POSTS TABLE] SET [Post column] = '$newText' WHERE [Id column] = $id";
               echo "Executing $query <br/>";
               $exec = mysql_query($query);
      }
      Then just visit the page and bam

      See? Manual in so much as you actually have to manually complain until selo finally snaps and writes you the script!

      I would add one wasp, er, b there.

      Was that the first rep I have given since the upgrade?

      PS. I do blame myself for not having spent a single whole evening since the upgrade systematically sorting out problems -- the way I did above but in a larger scale.

      Hmm, indeed, thanks. Gonna update in case style decides to use it.

      Style could just move the forum back to /forum/ though, I think. Doesn't matter where the forum resides, whatever's easiest I guess.

      I repeat my question:

      Can we have "view single post" back?

      Or is it there, but I just cannot find it?
