After what seems like an eternity, XRU is finally back online. With a downtime window of approximately 20 days, this is the longest the forum has been down in nearly a decade. If you're interested in reading more about why this all happened, check out this thread:
The abridged version is that we were running very old forum software and when we were forced to move to a new web server it caused the software to no longer function properly (e.g. completely break).
The good part of all this is that we finally got away from vBulletin and moved to the newest, latest, greatest forum software, XenForo. This migration means that some things may not work properly or that permissions to certain features for your account may not work right. If you have any problems at all, please contact Klint (K2) or Matt (NHXRUNNER) via direct message here or via the X-Runner Underground facebook page. We'll continue working through issues as well as additional design/styling over the coming month or so.
Some things that I've noticed are broken:
- You all may remember that we had a photo gallery before. We were unable to directly migrate all of that data over so anywhere on the site that references images from the gallery will result in a broken image. This includes signatures. I'm hoping to work on migrating the images (we still have them) later after we get through more pressing issues.
- Member ranks are messed up. Some are filled with HTML and otherwise everyone is listed as a New Member.
- That's all I've got right now but I know that is a lot more. There is quite a bit that I have not tested yet.
We thank all of you for you patience through this change. And with all that said and done, rock on!
