The Phoronix Forums Have Been Upgraded

The Phoronix Forums have been updated with a revised theme and other improvements.

In recent days there's been an abnormal increase in the amount of spam bypassing the filters that have been getting into the Phoronix Forums. Due to this and coming up with a better solution for eliminating such spam, removing the pesky one-minute time limit on editing messages, and to make it easier for Phoronix Premium members to log-in to their accounts, a major forum upgrade was done.

The vBulletin forum software was upgraded from vBulletin 3.8 to 4.1. Though beforehand it was not realized the themes break in transitioning to vBulletin4, so the previous Phoronix Forums theme was now incompatible. This led to quickly coming up with a new theme for the Phoronix Forums, which is now black text on white background.

Anyhow, the new forum software is still being tuned and please check out the Phoronix Forums and let us know in there how it goes for you and if you encounter any problems. If the spam elimination is successful, the pesky edit time limit issue should be addressed in the coming days and hopefully it's working well for Phoronix Premium subscribers too.

Pardon any nuisances this evening in accessing the forums; I certainly wasn't expecting to do an impromptu overhaul to them today. Fortunately the main site runs off our own PHXCMS content management system, which is unaffected by tonight's activities. Hopefully though this gave you time to check out our Twitter, Facebook, and Identi.ca.
