    Exclamation Forum software upgrade

    I am about to perform a software upgrade for vbulletin. Downtime should be minimal.

    Ok. All done for now. Still working on a few things, so some of the plugins are currently disabled.

    Not sure if this is intended or not, but when you go to the site, the Activity Stream is the first thing showing and you're taken automatically to: http://mysticwicks.com/activity.php -- it also makes the forum title "Activity Stream" on browser tabs.

    seems easier to navigate to me. also it looks like it was intended as when you go a google search for MW. the link there leads you to the activity section.

    blog section needs skins.

    Not necessarily (about it being intended), that was just the latest indexing from Google. It would have indexed things as it is now regardless of intention or not. Google and other search engines index things often and when there is a site change/upgrade.

    I think it needs a bit more work, if that's how things are going to be. For example, the forum shouldn't be called "Activity Stream - Mysticwicks..." as all you can really see in a tab or if bookmarked is the Activity Stream, not the forum name.

    oh ok.
