well crap.. little setback
I've noticed something fishy when I kept seeing really OLD members such as "EasyChat, Lifestyl, Desciple of Adun, and Entropy" logging onto the boards. This seemed strange and even more strangely that they wouldn't post anything after such a long absence.
There was a "bot" page on the ACP that I refreshed and somehow it removed a few of those old member id's (#3-54) mentioned! HEINERMANN
for example was deleted!
. CRAP! I have a local backup forum tho and hopefully can find exactly who was removed. So there must have been additional conflicts w/ the original #3-54 user i.d's that were part of the installation and "bots".
Managed to restore members #3-50 w/ backup. Hopefully the bot cache/conflicts are now completely taken care of.
Looks like there was an internal config file dedicated to the original 51 bots that were part of the installation. Even tho those bots were deleted from the database and replaced w/ our own members (3-54), the bot "page" still associated member #3-54 as bots. That has been fixed and we should be good to go now.
* re-added 2 bots, Google and Yahoo. There shouldn't be any conflict w/ existing member IDs.
.. I see Google
in the online member list right now. That was quick
* added a couple bbcode
looking into fixing the "showtopic=" urls and the [font size] issues.
