Migration to new forums

PostPosted by hd_ » 26 Dec 2016, 06:01

We've been looking at migrating from these forums to discourse, generously hosted for free without ads by discourse (https://github.com/urho3d/Urho3D/issues/1505). The migration should be complete soon, however just giving some warning ahead of time so everyone knows what to expect.

You can view the forums here with some old data migrated: http://discourse.urho3d.io/

You will need to reset your password to log in. Some users may be too new to have an account there.

If you experience any problems or have some objection, feel free to voice it. Wouldn't want to repeat the Unity forum 'upgrade' debacle ;)

Please email me (fastest response that way) when you want me to request the final SQL dump from this forum.

For me, Discourse will take some getting used to, but it's great to be rid of the ads and random downtimes :)

A welcome change!

I'm not familiar with Discourse, but shouldn't the subforums be mapped into a category for each one so users can filter topics according to them?

Looks like in mobile view the filters don't show maybe?

Currently on desktop you do get the filter options, but since it was a direct import of these forums there are categories and sub-categories, eg: http://discourse.urho3d.io/c/urho3d-user-forum/showcase . It probably makes sense to reduce it to just categories in the final move.

Edit: Alternatively you can look at the categories view: http://discourse.urho3d.io/categories

This is just right, a modern forum for a modern game engine. Perfect fit.

I would really like to see an optional dark theme on the new forums.
But seems like a good move. Could links to posts and threads be converted too, after the migration?

@Modanung, good news is looks like we can put in themes, but a quick test of that theme seems to be a little off, maybe it was intended for a different version.

I will look into the links, I believe it should be something that is handled during migration.
edit: The links will be updated in the final migration.

Ok, it was just an example, not a theme-specific suggestion.

The new forums are ready with new data. This forum will be put into read-only soon, and any posts here won't make it across. I encourage the use of the new discourse, unless there happens to be some unexpected error.

You will need to reset passwords again-- alternatively you can log in with your github accounts and it should be linked with your forum account if they use the same email address.

If you use a different email address and you want to log in via github, reset your old password, log in and request an email change to your githubs email then you will be able to log in through your github account.
