      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  2. Mageia

    Exactly the same experiences here. My MSI-laptop (with NVIDIA on board) needed a fresh install to Mageia 6, because re-partitioning was needed in my case. The older desktop-machine went smoothly through the upgrade-procedure from Mageia 5. My brothers' laptop i upgraded remotely through a SSL-connection, and also that was no issue. Now i have Cauldron in VirtualBox, besides openSUSE-Leap and openSUSE-Tumbleed VM's. All of them up-to-date. Though, it must be said, i had to reinstall Cauldron one more time, after one update-session went miserably wrong when systemd-update hanged and frooze the virtual machine. After reboot i was left with only a grub-prompt. I also fiddled around with the other desktop-environments, and must say, was pleasantly surprised by XFCE, very neat.
  3. Mageia

    Well Mageia 5 was rock solid for my home desktop/server box and my business desktop/server box. Given the warning that kde4 to plazma upgrade was a bit glitchy, I went all out on my home desktop, making copies of / and /home and performing a couple of test upgrades as recommended from init3, and it all went pretty smoothly. For my business box, given my home test had proven to work several times, I only made a good copy of / and /home in case the upgrade failed. Same deal, booted to runlevel 3 and did the upgrade, only thing I had to reconfigure was my samba users and firewall. So I have two sweet, Mageia 6 plazma boxes, both upgraded from Mageia 5, ticking along perfectly. Works already under way for Mageia 7!!!!!

  5. Forum software upgrade

    Yeah :) looking good now, before it was reading everything. Couldn't find where to turn it off in admin panel.
  6. Forum software upgrade

    Any way to control the amount of info being displayed under the avatars to the left? Mine is huge :D
  7. Forum software upgrade

  8. Forum software upgrade

    Don't think we need the portal. I think it's fine how it is right now.
  9. Forum software upgrade

    Can we enable the rewrite url option? Would be much nicer. In admin panel under SEO, but needs to have .htaccess enabled. When enabled, Friendly URLs will not include 'index.php'. In order to support this you must configure your web server to rewrite all URLs for your community directory to the index.php file. For assistance on how to do this, contact your hosting provider or system administrator. To see the .htaccess used for Apache servers for comparison, download this file.
