Forum will be down for maintenance

Post by Chris » Thu Mar 02, 2017 6:06 pm

Just a heads-up that the website may be down for some maintenance at various times during the next few days. I know some of you will have trouble getting by without your Diamond Aviators forum fix for a few hours, but hang in there and things should be back up soon enough. Maybe use the time to practice some approaches or polish your spinner.

During the downtime, we'll be migrating to a new server. There's a chance not everything will be working 100% when it comes back up, so bear with us and let us know if/when you run into any difficulties.

The server switchover is complete. If you're reading this, then you're accessing the new server. Please let me know ASAP if you run into any issues on the site, either by posting here or sending email to the 'admin' account at diamondaviators.net.

That was the best and fastest server switch DAN has ever seen, Chris.

A couple minor updates went in today:
  1. Updated to phpBB version 3.1.10
  2. Added a "Donate" button to the menubar
  3. Removed the "Home" button from the menubar. You can click on the DiamondAviators.Net logo on the top-left of of the page to get to home page.
As always, report any problems to the 'admin' email account or via the Site Feedback forum.

So far, so good Chris. I can't even detect a difference.

Hi Chris,

It should be in the Navigation Bar under the banner at the top of the page. If it's not appearing as shown in the attached graphic, let me know what type of system and browser you are using and I'll see if I can reproduce it.

I tried to keep it unobtrusive.

Thank you for pointing out the problem! It was actually a user permissions issue. Apparently I had it set up such that only admins could see the button. Let me know if it's fixed for you now.

Hi Chris,
Good job, works now!
Well, maybe not that good, no excuse for not donating :lol:
Come on others, do not just throw in your 2 cents, but make it a bit more!
