Thanks for all the time you dedicate to this. I've been in IT all my life and know the amount of work involved in preparing and executing this.

Blame the wiki for that one. I am waiting to hear back about how to de-tentacle it while they work on a fix for another problem it's having. Even after disabling it, it leaves "vestiges".

So... there was unfortunately some collateral damage. I had tested the everything we were using was compatible with (or I had recoded it to work with) the latest version of PHP. Subsequently, I upgraded us to the latest (most secure) version of vBulletin. It was only a minor point version upgrade of vBulletin. It never occurred to me a minor point upgrade would break anything. However it turns out that it was more like a major point upgrade, and breaks support for a lot of legacy 3rd party software (Eg: our Gallery), as well as some of their in-house modules that you would never imagine they would break compatibility with (eg: the blog system).

As such, and having discussed this matter with the moderators, we feel it is in the best interests of the community in general not to downgrade to a previous version of vBulletin, but stay with the latest (and most secure) release. We are currently in a process of improving the overall stability and security of the website, and these older, now unsupported add-ins are only going to cause us more pain if we try to retain them.

As such:
  1. The blogs area has been archived and made read only. All previous links and images will still work, however no new blogs or posts can be made. The archive is accessible here: diyAudio - Blogs and if there are any problems with existing links etc please post a bug report here.
  2. The gallery has been taken down. All previously uploaded images are still there and accessible, however no new uploads can be performed. The web based navigation has been removed and unless there is great consternation will remain removed.
  3. We are going to move forward with a migration to XenForo 1.5. XF2 may take longer that we would like, and there are too many great features waiting for us after the move to XF that we should not hold back. More details about the migration roadmap will be forthcoming over the next few weeks
  4. XF includes enhanced user pages which may provide an adequate replacement for the blogs system. If there is a better option we'll use that. Once the new system is live, we will attempt to migrate the old blogs to the new format/system.
  5. XF includes an inbuilt gallery, and again, once the new system is live, we will attempt to migrate images into that format/system.

On the plus side, we have now really tightened down the hatches for our current platform. There is still quite some work to be done upgrading more pieces of our current platform, and then moving the whole thing to a brand new server, and preparing for development of the new XF powered version of diyAudio, which will take a few months.

Thanks

That's the wiki software doing that - been waiting several days for the wiki developer to respond to my support tickets about this, and several other issues with their software.

I may have found a bug as well. From the main page, www.diyaudio.com, I cannot navigate to any of the subforums. When I click a link, I get the following error:

Code:
#0  DBSEO::handle404() called at [/www/diyaudio/diyaudio.com/htdocs/forums/dbseo.php:511]
This error was obtained by trying to browse to the Solid State forum. I can, however, successfully navigate to individual threads whose titles appear in the "Recent Posts" box on this main page, and can also navigate to subforums from www.diyaudio.com/forums.

Same here. OK yesterday, if that is a useful data point.

Best wishes

Thank you. Yes, we have just (this hour) moved from VBSEO (outdated, unsupported) to DBSEO (current, supported). Thanks for the bug report. If you see anything else let me know.

Wiki is still a work in progress.
