Forum Software Version, Updates, etcc.

Hello members and visitors! The forum has been upgraded to a new server and new forum software versions. We are in the process of tidying up and making it look nicer, but for now, please check out our two newest themes: Steel Nexus and Steel Nexus Worksafe!
  • The forum software here at DraftSteel is Woltlab Burning Board on Woltlab Community Framework.


    I've just performed an update to current versions and now we are on:


    Woltlab Community Framework 2.1.4
    Woltlab Burning Board Forum 4.1.4
    Tim's Chat 3.0.5


    And several other modules but their versions are not important - at least not for listing here.

  • Forum update was performed last night. Now we're on:


    WoltLab Community Framework 2.1.5
    WoltLab Burning Board Forum 4.1.5
    WoltLab Blog 2.1.0
    Tim's Chat 3.0.5


    Notice the addition of blog software - that's what drives the "Articles" tab of the forum. Burning Board is the forum. Chat is the Chat room (only registered members can access the chat room). Community Framework is what ties it all together.

  • Forum update was performed this morning. Now we're on:


    WoltLab Community Framework 2.1.6
    WoltLab Burning Board Forum 4.1.6
    WoltLab Blog 2.1.1
    Tim's Chat 3.0.5

  • Forum update was performed this morning. Now we're on:


    WoltLab Community Framework 2.1.6
    WoltLab Burning Board Forum 4.1.6
    WoltLab Blog 2.1.1
    Tim's Chat 3.0.5

    These are still the most up-to-date versions of the forum software, but it's worth noting that this setup has now been moved to a new hosting solution.


    We had been having weekend site performance issues with GoDaddy Hosting but now draftsteel.com is hosted via Vultr.com SSD VPS with a CentOS LAMP deployment and CloudFlare DNS Security. This should be the last time our new hosting solution bears mention - but it should give piece of mind to those who have wondered about recent performance issues.


    If you notice any hangover issues from the migration (duplicate things, broken links, etc) feel free to send me a PM.
