Fusor.net maintenance

Post by Andrew Robinson » Tue Feb 05, 2019 4:00 am

NOTICE

Frank and I are in the process of some maintenance on Fusor.net. There is not expected to be any downtime as a result of these changes, however, you may notice a few small temporary icon related discrepancies. There is no need to report this. The behavior is expected. We will be sure to update this post if necessary and when all changes are complete.

Thanks everyone!

All work should be complete now. The site has been updated so it behaves now with modern browsers, mobile platforms, and other misc applications. Things should work much better now and be far more streamlined. We ended up cleaning up quite a bit of duplicate code too. If anyone runs into any problems of experiences some weird behavior that they think might be somehow related to the changes we made, please post them here with detailed instructions to replicate and or screenshots. Thanks everyone! Have a great week!

Well... I guess if the entire site breaks as a result of these changes, we know who to blame right :)

As Andrew said, the favicon is now showing up on mobile and other platforms. It was much time by me for that and housekeeping but more results from Andrew.

He will also be doing this from time to time and helping as back up for moderation too. He has been elevated to Green on his posts as recognition to his contributions to the operation of the site.

Thanks Andrew!

Oh, and nice picture too!

High Guys thanks for the effort

a question
When are we going to upgrade to HTTPS
modern operating systems label the site as insecure
And I no longer have access at work due to the site not being HTTPS

That's a tough question that only Frank or Paul will be able to answer. I think the hope is to do it as soon as reasonably possible though. The goal obviously is to avoid any detectable impact and make any planned transition as seamless as possible. There are a lot of members on the forums here that notice when even a single pixel is out of place haha.

John,

We have been discussing upgrading the site. My other sites are all running secure. Let's see what we can do in the next few days to get this one up to speed.
