So the process of migrating to a new forum software is for the forum only and then tie ins at key points with the store to create a single account experience.
Please tell us it’s going to be a reversible process this time, so if by a million-to-one chance (!) it all goes horribly worng, you can back out of it and restore the current system. The problems we’re having right now are a nuisance, but it’s better than two tin cans and a bit of string.
I’m so excited, this is the first time in days I have been able to log on to the forums. It may last a couple of hrs. if I am lucky like last time.I am able to view all other Daz products except the forums when this happens. Strange.
...DAZ_Jon, thank you for the clarification. I’m hoping the migration will fix not only the forum timeout issue but restore a few other features we have been going without like filters, the ability to mix text and images (which is really helpful when explaining issues encountered with the application software or instructing others on processes), the galleries, and active banner links.
Or is this a completely different incredibly annoying limitation of the software…?
That is just the software being used for the forum and just one of the many reasons we are working on migrating away from it.
Ah, OK. Is it safe to assume the similar glitch that just bit me a minute ago — clicking on a thread title in a forum search page and getting my account dashboard — is in the same category?
Ugh I get this as well randomly. Only thing that cures it is a log out/in. Although, now the site doesn’t seem to want to keep my login for more than a day so I haven’t gotten this issue lately.
This has been happening to me EVERY time I try to view the Member’s Only Forum. I can’t get in at all. I’m sent straight to my Account Dashboard, too. At least now I know what’s going on. Well, not really, but I know it’s not just me.
.... We’re working out how to migrate all the posts, private messages, signatures, avatars, image uploads, etc., and are looking at what it would take to also move the old forum posts from the archive over. We know the forums are an important part of our site and that it could be a lot better, and are actively working on it.
