AP5.0 Release Schedule

Postby Matt » Fri Feb 10, 2012 10:41 am

I'm looking to pull the trigger on launching AP5.0 this weekend. Beta testing is complete, all bugs are squashed. We've tested pretty extensively in Chrome, Firefox 9 and 10, Android, IE 8 and 9 (if you have IE7, god have mercy on your soul). All that's left to do is import data and move over some content.

Some things you'll want to know...
  • There will be some downtime on Sunday, not sure how much yet
  • All user accounts, posts, forums, and image galleries will be imported.
  • NO classified ads will be imported, you'll have to re-enter them.
  • Events will have to be "re-associated" with the calendar
  • Profile fields "replicas owned" and "bio" will not be imported, if you have neat stuff in there you may want to copy and paste it somewhere so you can manually paste it back into your profile on the new site.
  • If you experience any login problems with the new site, clear your browser's cookies and try again. Sometimes an old session is no longer valid with a new site.
I will announce downtime for Sunday when I know, I have to test imports on Saturday and see how long it takes. I'm hoping we're talking about 4 hours at most.

When you say user accounts will be imported, does this include stuff like our bio and sigs?

Signatures, avatars, and other settings. NOT the bio or replicas owned fields. If you have cool stuff in your bio like Adam does, I'd suggest you copy and paste it into a text file. There will be an appropriate place to paste it on the new profile.

UPDATE: Testing of data imports went well today, so AP will launch tomorrow. We will have scheduled downtime on Sunday, February 12 from 6:00am to 10:00am. After 10:00am we will have the new site live, while we are down you will either see a message stating the forums are inactive, or you'll get a password prompt. Thank you for your patience. We'll have things up sooner if time allows.

Will that fix the iCal error with the event calendar because when I export the iCal download and it opens with iCal it says this in the screen shot above.
