I am happy to announce that the major data conversion portion of the upgrade process has finished.
Please follow this link for some important information about the upgrade: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=1058346
I imagine some of you are probably a bit stunned by what the site currently looks like.
Not to worry you can quickly and easily change the way the PbNation is displayed on your computer. The update changed everyone’s style to the default style you are currently viewing. This is easy to change.
Quickest way to change the style and color is to shoot down to the bottom left on any page and change to a new style by clicking on any of the color and style selections. Go ahead and try a few you may even find one you like.
The previous versions of our software have always had the ability to change the way the site looks in your preferences and this can still be done. If you don't prefer the colors you are seeing you can easily change them in your User CP > Edit Options
or by going to the bottom left of any page and clicking the menu to select a new style.
The slider style set from our vb2 board will not be included after the upgrade. If you frequently use the Quick Reply you may find that you have to click one of the Quick Reply icons on someone's post now to activate the message area. This is done so that the Threaded and Hybrid Display modes work properly. To use the quick reply look for this image (
) on the person's post that you want to reply to.
It’s not perfect yet and we expect some glitches to occur. We need your help.
Now that the site is released we are asking everyone’s patience as we really don't expect it to run super smooth right away. We were able to test many things but the one thing we couldn’t test is the actual stress of having tens of thousands of users post and view PbNation on a daily basis.
We've been running vb2 since we started and during that time we have optimized the code over and over to keep this place afloat. We haven't had the same history with this vb3 code. We know that we will have to make adjustments to this new code to make it perform as we hope. Please be patience.
We are asking that when you use PbNation and you notice something that doesn’t seem right or isn’t working for you that you post your issue in this thread. Please only post if you think you have a technical issue. Most preference (opinions) type posts will be deleted.
I have personally spent many hours working on this upgrade and ask for your understanding and patience during this process. It's not going to look 100% like the PbN you are used to, so freak-out away from your keyboard please.
Some of my posts from previous threads with useful info:
You don't like the colors?
I don't like how the subforums on the main page are listed!
If you used the default style (Default - Sidebar) previously, this is it's vb3 counter part:

By the way. The color schemes were taken directly from the old site. The gradients were based off of those. Go to the bottom left of the page and find the one you are currently using on here.
