forum updates / info

Post by rjbman »

hi folks

care tags is back and brand new! there's a new look (with mobile support!) and brand new blank pages to be written

long story short the old site software was outdated & our host updated our PHP version to an incompatible version that wouldn't work (but can be read). i didn't feel comfortable trying to update it in place, since I couldn't get a backup made correctly (their web UI sux). so the old care-tags lives on at old.care-tags.org and will always stay linked at the top (under "archive") but will be read only.

please bear with me / us as i'm sure i've missed some stuff for setup. reps should work, but the tag system is outdated & incompatible (crying)

make yourselves at home and feel free to recreate any / all of your favorite threads

love you all

surely 'tags' was clothes and 'care' was off-topic, unless the goal was to induce epistemological anxiety in all of us

but in any case—thank you for your efforts and labour in all this and for dealing w the sins of PHP software for us! looking forward to the redistribution of rep

We've rolled out the new update for anyone finding the forum for the first time after reading about us in the "Wall Street Journal"

Welcome!

if you're on mobile / maybe desktop you might have to clear your cache in order to get the updated CSS. frannyglass had the same issue

per user request, there is now an alternate visual style available: 1978

Image

to swap: user control panel -> board preferences -> my board style

will not be dedicating a lot of time to support this if you have issues, though

for posterity, the default style is ProLight if you wanna revert back
