Updated portal and forum software. Headache in progress :(
I think I've got it all sorted now but will have to check everything is working properly in good time.
Do you think I'll ever get arround to making use of this site? (I think the answer is universally known to that lol)
Now a lot to say really, been otherwise engaged so I've not been up to very much at all.
There is a problem with the site backup system at the moment so I'm inclined to not make any major uploads untill I've done a manual backup.
Spammers have been out again. Less than a thousand failure notices so not too bad. There's not a lot I can do about it really.
All regular members are now enabled to post comments on the main site. This may be restricted somwhat if there is some trouble due to this but I think is much better than the previous invertation only system. Posting of the items themself is still restricted to approved members, although I am considering allowing reviews to be posted by all non new members in the future.
Well I've had a couple of visits from some idiots trying to claim they've defaced my website. Yeah right, all they did was post a long shout. Don't these people have anything better to do? Like get a job?
New members are welcome to the site although you will need to activate the account by clicking on the link in the e-mail you receive after you register before you can use your account. At the moment there are no default rights to post onto the main site or indeed make any comments. It is straightforward to enable users to do this, currently on a user by user basis, although I am considering granting all members limited abilities to post comments by default.
Updated the forum to 1.1 and the CMS to 1.1.1 - was a little hairy when it started outputing errors after the updates but it's been sorted out and everything is back in working order again.
