Dogs of War Online 3.0

Just to let everyone know I'm in the process of upgrading the site to a new version of the MyBB software and layout. As of right now, the site is good where its hosted and there will be plenty of time/warning before the update is made.

Basically this is a "You heard it here first type of Announcement."

Ok if all goes well I will be upgrading the site next Saturday. So that means plan for the site being off line on 2-7-15 in the evening EST. I'll make a post at that time when the board goes off line.

Alright after some "fun" I had to roll-back the forum to 11-14-15.

Good news is I've installed a second forum to test things on. It's on the latest version and changes will happen there first in terms of the new layout and theme.

Once that's done I'll be backing up the site, then updating the MyBB. After that new theme.

Before all that I'll be working on re-installing the Wiki and the gallery sections.

Updates behind the scenes continue. I'm skating this weekend for updates to the site in terms of mybb (i.e. the forum software).

Updates continue and site has been renewed for another year. Within the next two days (if all goes well) step one of updating the site software will be compete so expect a different look to it for about 24 hours.

Next up will be the new theme, hopefully on Saturday if all goes well there.

Also on the docket is fixing the navigation along with disabling all the old plugins. Then I'll re-add slowly the ones that make sense.

Ok may not look like it but working on a bunch of behind the scenes stuff on the site, with the jump to MyBB 1.8 there are a lot of plugins that are not working correctly so it the theme will need to take a back seat. Don't worry however that is underway but I can't give a glimpse of what that will look like just yet. Nothing fancy but inline with our old one.
