Nope. Looks like they used some kind of database tag. The file names are all big long ugly things.

Ok then, I have actually managed to get it installed and working. Now I will need to see if I can export the proper tables from the old database and get them over into the new one. We will see. I'm going to disable permissions to it for right now so users can't create albums or upload, as that might mess up the database imports.

TEMPORARY Youtube fix:

Click on the YOUTUBE tag.

Copy the code from the URL (not the embed code).

For example:



Delete "watch?" and delete the equals sign "=". This leaves:

https://www.youtube.com/vAbQYhYGCsRU

Add a "/" after the "v", which leaves:



[youtube][/youtube]

For now, I don't know how to fix, just work around it.

Sorry and thanks! :oops:

Thank you all for the efforts and time you put to make this forum work, one question : will you bring back the donation button ?

Yes, I do need to do that. I'll also get the bbcode fixed for youtube embeds, as soon as I have time.

GREAT!

twostrokeheros, check yours, too.

Somehow, it did not have any permissions set. Were you able to see it before the site upgrade? I would assume so.

If anyone else can not see the search box, let me know. I can fix it.
I can see it on my android phone, on chrome macbook its not there.

"Can Search Board" is set to YES.

Do you are saying you can search from the phone but not the Mac?

Hello

Post by Henryarms » 08:09 pm Jan 02 2019

New to the forum and I'm looking at a 96 kdx with fresh rebuild but missing the conector rod for power valve. Is this a big deal if I can get it for $750.00? I also relize this may be taboo cutting straight through the bs and asking my ? In my intro I'm sure some nice inmate will direct me for proper placement of this ?
Happy riding y'all!
H.A.
P.s. pre thanks for the insight about to be conveyed!

General Q/A would be an appropriate place for any questions. Depending on what happened with the rod, it shouldn't be that big of a deal. If it was broken though, there could be bits floating around in the clutch side of the trans.

Thought I’d post here as well, but now that the URL for the site has lost the “/forums” component, every link to every thread is broken. Even on google. Is there a workaround to this?

Thanks. Yeah, I am aware of the problem. The issue is actually twofold. If you'll notice there is a distinct difference in topic urls from the old forum to the new. Keeping in mind we are on a brand new server, new IP address, new DNS records, the whole 9

old:
http://www.kdxrider.net/forums/viewtopi ... 15&t=15320

new:
viewtopic.php?f=115&t=15320

The SSL certificate that provides for trusted encryption (which we did not have on the old site), only serves for kdxrider.net* not www.kdxrider.net. So I could fix it, however, those links would all show a security warning to the users that they might be getting hacked. So I am currently not allowing those links in DNS or the web server itself to avoid that. The fix will be to have all directories redirect from http://www.kdxrider.net* to https://kdxrider.net/*, but so far I have been unable to get that working. Something else in the config is interfering with any attempt I make to redirect in such a way.

There is a donation button now at the top of every page, just below the header.

You should now see a "donations" item in the header portion just between quick links and FAQ. If not, please let me know.

Thanks for lighting a fire under me on that. It's really been bothering me but I hadn't really had the time to work on it. I was actually able (after much frustration and cursing) to get a redirect working properly, so now "www.kdxrider" will redirect to "https://kdxrider" and the old google links load properly.


wOOt!!!

Hate to be that guy, but not seeing the donations link. I cleared my cache with no change. Everything else appears to be working fine
