    Site Maintenance

    The Chess Chat site will be temporarily unavailable after 3 PM this Friday (6/9/2013), due to maintenance.

    The outage is expected to last approximately one hour.

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    The maintenance is now complete. The forum has been upgraded.

    The following will be activated soon:

    PGN Uploader

    Please reply to this thread if you notice any issues with the upgrade.

    A designer is working on a new theme for ChessChat, so hopefully that will be done within the next couple of weeks.

    I can't get the pgn uploader/recorder to work, and I think it has something to do with the extra security in the newer version of vBulletin. Not sure when I can have this fixed. I'll look into arcade and shoutbox options over the weekend.

    I have 2 problems: 1) The redirect after logging in doesn't work; 2) There doesn't appear to be a working 'stay logged in' mechanic on the site. Anyone else having these issues?

    Some other login issues fixed by forcing domain to www.chesschat.org no matter what domain you visit (.com.au, .net.au, etc..)

    Shoutbox has been installed. Unfortunately all the old posts are gone as it is a new piece of software.

    Arcade has been re-added and it seems to have retained all the scores.

    Still working on the PGN Uploader/Recorder.

    Please let me know if there are any issues.

    There used to be a dropdown box at the bottom right of the screen where you could jump to any subforum directly from the thread you were viewing, rather than having to go to the main page and then go to the subforum. Not sure if it's an option to bring that back?

    It is still there called Quick Navigation.

    Hmmm. That's interesting; I can see the 'Quick Navigation' thing if I view a thread, but not if I view a forum. Maybe that's a feature - after all, it's only one step back to the forum list from the forum view anyway? Either that, or I just can't see it.

    I hope we get our royal blue colours back one day - we can't let Doodlebox have them to themselves

    The site isn't going to be blue anymore.

    The new theme is now live. Shoutbox looks a bit broken, and the arcade is completely broken. This will be fixed as soon as possible.
