Arpegi 5.x change log
« on: November 01, 2014, 01:14:50 PM »
Word of the admin

Arpegi started out as a forum to rebel against other forums their bad admin styles. The first version of Arpegi had updates left and right, but we couldn't do a lot since Mizari & I didn't had access to the core files.

After a year, Mizari and I moved Arpegi to our current host. I decided to start the v2.0 line of Arpegi. In this version we got a lot of updates. The big update was the portal.

Then v3.0 came around at the start of this year. We got our battle system and big changes to our forum. The final updates, v3.11 were actually ALL meant for Arpegi 4.0. The fixes to some BBC codes, the bug fixes and mod updates were all meant for the upcoming version of Arpegi.

Arpegi v4.0 will include a big change and a reset of our battle system. Not only that, but you guys won't see big changes at the user-side of Arpegi after the big update. Since the 4.0 line is mostly a big code clean-up update. I'm going to delete code that we don't need or use. In the mean time, you guys will see more updates to everything. Don't worry, these updates will also be for reviving the forum a bit!

Anyways, enough talking. I hope you guys are looking forward to the big update. It will happen this weekend. And this topic will be the new change log. :)



Edit 2023: Ok, so white screen of death has been going on for long enough. Trying to fix this shit.

Arpegi 5.0 - PHP recovery

Quote from: PHP fixes
  • Fixed the white screen of death. For this, I had to disable all other themes, due to them not working on PHP 8.0+
Quote from: Behind the scenes
  • Upgraded various mods to run on PHP8.0
  • Removed some admin shortcuts since they are broken on PHP8.0+ and the only fix would be upgrading to SMF 2.1 (which is currently not in the pipeline)
  • Various small loading improvements the FCP.
Quote from: Updates for mods
  • Made the moderation menu "lazier". (More quick links)
Quote from: YouTube
Quote from: Snowflakes
  • A lot more animations are present now.
  • Them spitting out a ton of PHP8 errors is a time of the past.
  • They can be ignored or disabled by the user easier in their settings.
This might look like a very small and minor update, but believe you me... This update took me weeks to figure out the cause of that white screen of death.
Various members emailed me, poked me on Steam... Thank you for that.  :D

But PHP 8.0+ broke all other themes beyond repair.  >:( I could adjust it for PHP8.0+, but then I might loose all features like the arcade/notes system/additional social media profiles etc.

So, I took the decision to rip out all other themes and reset everybody to the default theme to get it working again. Feel free to shout at me because of that, but I rather have our place be up & running for nostalgia reasons without the other themes compared to it being gone and only a fleeting memory. Behind the scenes, when I have the time, I'm also doing security updates and others to make sure this is GDPR proof AND we don't get hacked. ;)
