- Upgraded our forum software overall (So new features like the Notifications popup )
- Moved server altogether <-- This should now fix the random crashes we get every few months. I should have done it years ago, sorry
- Updated the shoutbox <-- The script we use stopped being maintained ages ago,
but I've tweaked it a bit now to work properly on current browsers, and hopefully solve our issue with overflowing messages. TLDR is that we shouldn't need to wipe the shoutbox every 2 hours anymore
- Setup https so your browser should now mark FG as Secure (by showing the little padlock icon at the top).
If a page tries to load an image over the non-secure way (just with http://, no s), then the browser marks it as partially secure. That won't happen in core pages (like logins, or the control panel) where it matters most, but does happen on a lot of the threads where our custom signatures, post images etc appear.
I've fixed the majority with a script, but it will likely have broken a few.
To Get Your Old Sig Back
If your signature no longer loads certain images, right click where the broken image tries to load, and load the image in a new tab.
It will load at an address like: https://oi59.tinypic.com/5nj7s4.jpg
To fix it, just delete the `s` from the start, e.g. http://oi59.tinypic.com/5nj7s4.jpg
This should apply to very few people (Basically only if you've used a free host which isn't secure yet. Tinypic seems to be one of the very few that aren't!)
If you want to use another free host instead which doesn't need any registration, this site has been great for me: https://postimages.org/
Any Other Issues?
If you spot anything else broken around the site, let me know.
I still have a few things left to do (Like clearing out the giant backlog of registered bots is one! We have so many that the forum crashes each time I try to run the built-in script. Will have to figure out a way around that ), but feel free to suggest anything else
