December 2016 Updates

It's almost (insert your preferred holiday here), and I'm testing out using the blog feature for updates. Because why not?

 

Migration

GB has been migrated away from the previous hosting company, as we were outgrowing the package they provided. Unfortunately we weren't outgrowing them in terms of usage, but rather due to the storage space used. Perhaps unsurprisingly, a website this old takes up a bit of space!

Anyway, the new hosting seems to be stable now, but if you notice anything strange please do let me know.

 

Software update

IPS has been updated to the latest version and I have noticed a couple of oddities caused by differences in the default theme and the customisations that have been made. I'll be looking into this more soon.

A couple of new features to note are that there are more embed options available when posting, including Reddit, deviantArt, and quite a few others. Auto saved post drafts should now be improved also, and you should be less likely to be logged out if you browse GB on multiple devices.

There is also a new Leaderboard feature which shows things like top posters for the day, but it needs reskinning as it doesn't display correctly right now. It can be found under the Forum menu option at the top if you want to check it out.

 

That's all for now, once again please let me know if you spot any problems!

MTFBWY!

Is there a way to change the leaderboard display? I checked it out and it seems to sort it by reputation points. Not post count or other things. (Not that it really matters, of course.)

I don't think there is, unfortunately, but I just might not have found the options yet or they could add more options in the next update.

Okiedokes. :)

Just noticed something else! lol

I can't get the Spaceport board to load. I mean, it loads but none of the threads are there. Do you want a screenshot?
