So as many of you know we tried moving to Invision Power Board 4 from 3.3.4 which we were using for over 5 years. There were some cool features with IPB 4 but ultimately it caused a lot of issues. The majority of clans use Invision Power Board version 3.4 and in April of this year it was deemed unsafe to use since it will no longer receive security updates because the company wants to focus on the newer version. When that news was released I began working on my own forum software that CP would use after version 3. However, certain things came up and we ended up giving IPB 4 a shot because development of “usable” forum software from scratch takes a lot of time. Companies like IPB have large teams so development is a lot quicker so with one person you can only imagine how long it takes to get things running. Due to all the issues that we were facing with IPB 4 I decided to migrate all of our topics/posts users etc. to my new forums. They are far from complete and there are still a ton of bugs and features missing but it will at least be usable to the point where you can post topics, reply, mention users, edit your profile and so on. The design is also not final but I tried to keep it as similar as it was to our older layouts.
In order to access your forum account you must recover the password via e-mail. You can do so by clicking here http://cp-rs.com/auth/resetpassword
. If you do not remember your e-mail or did not have an e-mail set please contact me on SwiftIRC in #clan-cp(Drunk) or in teamspeak(ts.cp-rs.com).
There are many features which I am still implementing so you may run into bugs. If you do please just send me a pm on these forums letting me know what happened or if there is somehow a bug with the message system just make a topic in this forum section.
A lot of the topics/posts migrated over will look a little funny due to the formatting but I'm working on getting them looking 100% normal again. I also temporarily disabled status updates & top posters because it was causing the forums to lag a bit. These forums are designed to be extremely light weight and should load much quicker than IPB.
Previous forum topics/posts from our older boards such as Jcink and Invisionfree will also be imported into this database as well so you can browse literally every topic from the moment CP was created in 2005.
How to update your forum information such as avatar, about me etc.
1. Click on your profile name on the top right of the page.
2. Click edit next to your username on the top left or select the drop down on the top right and click settings.
3. Update information on this page. Avatars must be uploaded to http://august4th.us
You can mention users by using @ and then their username. I currently have auto complete working in replies but I am still working on it for topics.
Images and other font editing still use BBCode so brackets such as
will make things bold
I will keep all bugs and feature requests updated on this topic so feel free to also report bugs here and make recommendations.
