Blizzard modding has been restored.... mostly

Blizzmod 2.0... On the run.

Hi fellow members:

As you may noticed, the site was in a hard upgrading process. This was done mainly because the site was generating serious issues with the hosted projects pages and the main cause was an outdated version of the subforums page against the new version of the forum software.

Changing this was a real pain in the ass and I have to take the hard decision of doing a total reinstall of the forum software. :)

This meant a lot of work and unfortunately I had a big loss: All the post, attachments and members after October 2013 were lost. This made me feel very sad. :(

If you subscribed to this forum in 2014, you should register again. :( sorry.

What improvements come? Well, now with the fresh installation comes new features:
  • A blog system,
  • a new page design which will be adapted gradually for better experience...
  • NEW LOGO
  • And more...

    I'll be pending for bugs in the forum page. If you find one (or many) please let me know and I'll fix them as soon as possible.


    BIG HUGS!!!! as always, and my apologies for any inconvenience.



    Things to make right now:
  • Setting the code highlightning
  • implementing again the custom bbcode

What a hard time we're having, it gonna be tough restoring the database.
How did the site backed up actually, it confuses me to be honest.

I hope the new interface and features can compensate the data loss.

Sounds like  pretty huge loss since I remember that before oct 2013 is our inactive years and I really have no idea what happened last year on the site.

Anyway let be positive and think of this as a great way to start over.

I see that I'm still one of the director of the site so let me once again help the site grow.

HUGSSS! Keep it up boss.

EDIT:
Did we also lose judash's resources? I can't seem to find those.

Thanks for coming back after the issues in the site, I need all the help possible, because I have BIG plans for this site (the new theme is part of the project).

About Judash resources, I have a backup of all of them, now I'm working in a site modification which will have a MUCH better resource management, all in the same forum system.

Yup, the new theme looks awesome. If I were to suggest something maybe a better mobile support. I keep seeing some weird blue and black line all over the place. Our old one also looks great so if the new one will take a while maybe you can put the old resource section as a placeholder.

Definitely mobile support will come in the site, in fact I'm working first in the resource section so the mobile compatibility works seamlessly with the modifications on this site.
