    Still on sched. It is likely APUG will be down for 1-3 days as this is a complete rebuild and implementing all of the work done in development will take time. There are also a few things we can't recode until we're upgraded so there will be downtime while this is done as well. It's looking like This coming Thurs or Friday APUG will be shut down. I'll have the site redirect to a status page and chatroom while we are down. For those interested the schedule will be along the lines of:

    -site taken down, temporary upgrade status page & chatroom put up.
    -full backups taken on server, backups downloaded to my local machine, extracted and verified
    -core system upgrades (vbulletin, gallery software, search engine optimization, chatroom, portfolios, link system, video directory, blogs, article system, style templating)
    -take backup of core upgraded site
    -site testing, identify and correct any bugs
    -add/update additional plugins
    -1 to 2 days of final cleanup, coding and tweaking
    -re-open the site

    Sean: if the site is really going to go down for that long, I think it is wise to give a BIG pre-warning before it goes down, and not only refer to a status page while it is down.

    Most people will not be aware of what is coming up, as they can not access this APUG System Announcements section or simply don't read it, and may be unpleasantly surprised. A pre-warning will help taking care of that.

    Maybe you can place a clear message of the upcoming downtime on the APUG's main page, preferably in a yellow box or something to have it noticed easily.

    I second brian d's remark: thank you..., you're running one of the most extensive and good community sites out there! Most sites do not advance beyond some basic forum functionality, APUG is so much more than that...

    Wow! I'm really looking forward to the new and improved APUG! The CMS front end looks just like the front end I use with Joomla / K2.

    This is perfect timing as I will be out of town and away from my computer during the outage. Nice of you to check my schedule first Sean LOL.

    One more thing to bear in mind for those who will require a fix. There is a facebook page for APUG. Do a search for www .apug. org (no spaces, just prevent a looping url) and it should pop right up. I beleive there might even be an old flickr page. Not sure. But there are a lot of likes on the facebook page. Might not hurt to start each post with your handle here if different from your FB name. See ya there.
    Thank you.

    What fix , or do you mean the APUG equivalent of a methadone treatment for drug addicts?

    Snacking, so close to dinnertime? Hey, somebody snitched one of your snacks and left a note in its place.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Good to know somebody's thinking about these things.:rolleyes:
