Next to adding 2 brand new forums, I just added a "youtube" phpBB-code

Code: Select all

[youtube]videoID[/url]
videoID being the part after the v=, showing in bold on video below:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;8Gv0H-vPoDc

So, you'll end up with:

Code: Select all

[youtube]8Gv0H-vPoDc[/youtube]
to get:

Youtube


Also, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter button added to your profile-page. You'll be given an extra icon if you have filled it in :)

I'm afraid we had a serious issue on the server causing a complete destruction of everything. Lucky I have backups, so after a full reinstall of a new server I managed to put back this backup. Meaning there will be some loss on posts and I'm sorry about that. At least things are working as it was I think Monday early morning.

Well, at least I finally made sure all your Weird Al talking is now secure, from now on we're running on SSL !

So, we needed to move and stuff didn't work. I had to downgrade PHP to get this forum back up and running, but it seems to be working again. Sorry for any inconvenience

:zipper: so.. yeh... I just upgraded weirdalforum.com to the latest phpBB.. we're probably missing a lot of plugins, but at least I'm feeling a bit safer now..

EDIT: Everything is looking fine. We did have issues with search, but that's fixed. We also implemented a prevention for spambots to register, so that should go away too.
