Planned Downtime - March 29th - Upgrade testing

Post by Flatscan » Wed Mar 25, 2020 12:38 am

Heads up; I'll be testing the upgrade of the forums to version 3.3.0 at 10pm Eastern time on Sunday, March 29th.

I'll post on Twitter and post a site-wide announcement while running this testing.
It'll involve some downtime while the upgrade itself runs, and I may roll back the upgrade afterwards, so any posts made while that announcement is up may be lost.

The hope is that this upgrade will clean up some of the odd, hard to nail down bugs we've seen since the migration in December, while giving us some more modern features.
The risk is it may break some of the styles and customizations we have in place today.

IF everything runs super well, we may leave the upgrade in place, but most likely we'll roll back to the pre-upgrade snapshot.
