We have Moved!
« on: August 13, 2014, 10:53:00 pm »
First of I want to apologize for the length downtime. As usually when it comes to migration & upgrades not everything will work smoothly and so we've also ran into some hiccups.
At the moment all attachments have been disabled due to missing attachments and broken attachments - sorry about that! We hope to fix this within a day or less!

Other than that, we can happily announce that the SFML website including the forum, has successfully moved to an completely new host! This change will give the SFML Team new possibilities in working on the website and more room for anything! :)

While migrating we've also updated the forum to a newer version, however not to the latest yet, but we hope to do that soon!

Thanks for all your understanding an patience! ;)

Also: Please report all issues you find, so we can fix them!

Nice.
And the Search functionallity seems to work much faster now :)
However, search only seems to work if I access it via the link in the menu bar that has "Home Help Search Profile My Messages Members Logout". If I use the search box on the top of the page (next to the "French forum" link) It doesn't seem to find anything :(

There's a lot more "power" available now. :P

Thanks for the report. It might be fixed with the pending update, until then you can just click on "revise search" and it will do the actual search.

Probably also an issue from the upgrade, we'll look into that. :)

A few other random comments about the site that might help it improve even more than it already has with the move :

These scripts could (maybe) move to the end of the page rather than the 'head' element so the page won't stall on them:
    http://www.sfml-dev.org/forums/Themes/default/scripts/script.js
    http://www.sfml-dev.org/forums/Themes/ds-natural_20/scripts/theme.js
    http://en.sfml-dev.org/forums/mobiquo/tapatalkdetect-nochrome.js
    http://www.sfml-dev.org/forums/Themes/default/scripts/editor.js

There are 4 plain text components that should be sent compressed:
    http://www.sfml-dev.org/forums/Themes/ds-natural_20/css/index.css
    http://www.sfml-dev.org/forums/Themes/default/scripts/script.js
    http://www.sfml-dev.org/forums/Themes/ds-natural_20/scripts/theme.js
    http://en.sfml-dev.org/forums/mobiquo/tapatalkdetect-nochrome.js

There are 36 static components without a far-future expiration date. Maybe add some 'expires' headers for those - maybe just set the expires date to something like a week/month to get the benefit of caching without them being un-updated forever by visitors if you change them.

We'll try to look into this, but given the nature of SMF chances are, there isn't much we can (easily) do. ;)

No problem. Things work just fine - what I posted above are just optimizations, so not really that relevant as long as what we have performs OK :)

Global search seems to work now, but I've noticed a strange behaviour, I don't know if it was the same before. If there are too many results, only one page (30 results) is returned. I've tried to search for the word "project" on all forums: if I use an unlimited date range, or 400-1000 days, I get 1 page. If I limit it a little bit more, to 500-1000 days, I get 34 pages of results.

I have no idea if it has something to do with the new host, though. Maybe it is even a strange "feature" of SMF.

I'll have to investigate the search a bit more. Thanks for the report. :)

I have checked all the log files and could not find any issues.

So I just checked again and the search box at the top works fine, however when you're in a sub-forum the search via that box will be limited to said sub-forum. So if you search for something "odd" it might not find it in that sub-forum. And when you're in a thread, it will limit it to the given thread. ;)
