I am working hard to get the site optimized and sped up, as well as upgrading to the latest technologies. CA need some help from members who can take a moment and try to use the test forums to see if there are bugs I cannot find myself.
We need to try anything related to the forums in the test site. ie uploading images..making a thread in the diff forums...sending pm...anything the forums does. Please see below if you don't mind lending us a hand.
The latest version available (vBulletin 3.8.1 Patch Level 1) is installed on
a test database(concept_test) and a test folder (forums3). This you can be find it at :
I need help with checking of this test version of site. Please take a look and tell me if you see any problems - anything what is suspicious.
Also I check the upgraded version too.
Would be ideal to test each page, each process : registration, new post, reply post ... etc.
Note: Please take care to stau in test version .../forums3/... Only the forum pages stay there. Others - gallery, search, ... - working only with production version. This piece we can be test it only when
we will switch to the newest version. The idea is to short as much as possible this time.
Is very important to observe the problems now, before to make the upgrade on production site.
If all is ok I can run the upgrade procedures of upgrade on production site in order to have the latest version of VBulletin online.
There are many new things, but some of them will help us with our problems directly. Improvements of this version to note:
1. the registration process has the "human checking" procedure : so a robot will not be able to register anymore;
http://www.conceptart.org/forums3/register.php >> check "I have agree..." >> Register >> will see a new section "Image verification";
On this way we can UnInstall module : Is Bot: Registration Time Check if this module is used only for prevent robots registration;
This module will perform many checks, to very small time interval to have results. In conclusion it can be a resource consumer.
Thanks everyone! Please post any bugs found here. We are in the databases fixing this stuff now and any help is HUGELY appreciated.
