Title: YaBB 2.3 released
Post by Rad on Oct 13th, 2008 at 9:00pm
YaBB v2.3 was released yesterday (Oct. 12):


Cory claims it's one of the ...

.. one of the biggest and best updates to the YaBB 2 line. Several new and long overdue features have been added – you’ll recognize them as the most popular BoardMod modifications for YaBB. Overall, 16 large features have been added. On top of that, dozens of bugs, layout issues, spelling errors, and documentation deficiencies have been corrected!

Full list of features enhancements & bug fixes posted here:


YaBB v3.0 (a major rewrite) will be database-driven, tho it'll probably be another year b4 we see anything useable:


I've learned not to get in a hurry over these upgrades. Best to take my time, and not rush anything, especially late at night.

I suspect we'll be stylin' in our new 2.3-diggs sometime this weekend, or early next week.

The recommended "upgrade" method involves installing a copy of the new version into a new directory (such as "/yabb23"), and then copying/moving the contents of the /members and /messages folders t the new installation directory .. then re-naming the new folder to replace current one (/yabb2).

The 2.3 files have been uploaded to the server, chmod'ed (which suks = tedious), and are ready for installtion. (Trying to get a head-start. It'll take a while to dial in.)

UPDATE: YaBB v2.3 has been installed:


I still need to copy over all members & posts, but the sketchy part is done. (It's 1 AM. That's enough for now.)

Yeah, baby!

We're stylin' with Y2.3.

Lemme know if you notice any glitches. It was a significant upgrade, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were some quirks to work out.

No mods are available yet for this new board.

I'm not getting notified for new topics in the Norton Ghost 14/12.. board.  Also saw a post for a topic I had posted to earlier and didn't notified of response to that one.

Maybe it's just me?
