Yes, you heard it right, there is a new version of the-spot.net being put up as you read this.
The folks over at www.phpbb.com have released version 3.0.0 of their forum software, and it has all the functions and features that we used in tsnX built-in to it, and everything works right out of the box. So I have gone through and done the conversion of the database, and am in the processing of setting up the permissions and fixing up the forum structure to make get most of it back to the way it was, and some of it optimized and combined for fewer forums.
I’ll have another follow-up post about what’s different that I changed during the conversion, and there will be a forum for things that changed because of the upgrade for everyone to post in.
The only drawback for now is that there is no My Spot page until I get it written again.
