Dear all,

I have been working tirelessly to make this move happen over the last few weeks even learning REGEX so we can port over as smoothly as possible.

Please leave your Feedback, Bugs, Feature Requests in this thread.

I am also a bit of a newbie, I have been writing modifications and using vbulletin for over 10 years.

It will also be difficult for me and I might not have all the answers t first, but I will find them and make sure you are supported on this move, I know it is a BIG DEAL!

Thank you all.

Mick

Initial impressions are good, it will take sometime to get used tot he new interface and where to find things.
Therefore, please only highlight any critical bugs first that impact your usage of the forum rather than nice to have's.

It's looking good @Mick. It will take a little time to get used to things just like everything else that is new. Onwards and upwards Mick keep up the good work.

Please do post any permission issues that you find.

This is probably the biggest area for me, permissions are all different, and I will need to update things as we find them.

If you cannot do something - this is not a prohibition lol, it is permission I need to adjust.

Thank you all.

Mick

Thread prefixes are not working as expected when clicked.

Looking into it to see if it's something I can fix; but might need someone with full admin access to sort.

All the VB links looked like this:https://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=forum number&prefixid=Unique ID"
(red text would change depending on the room and prefix.)
Here is a full example https://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=32&prefixid=BIOS_UEFI1

Here is an XF example URL: https://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/forums/pc-problems.32/?prefix_id=1 You'll note that clicking just opens the PC Problems room, which is what clicking on any of the thread prefixes do in that room.

I don't might recreating them all if need be; they look a lot easier to set up in XF than they were in VB:
You do not have permission to view link Log in or register now.
However, we would lose all the prefixes that already exist.
