Figured a way to move default routes to different subdomains (without editing files). Help now on www... https://www.digitalpoint.com/help/ Dec 24, 2013

      Congratulations, Shawn! For a project going on since October 2011, you must be really happy with yourself at the moment, though perhaps not done with the job overall yet.

        Wow that is impressive. I see that the search reindex is impacting performance a little. Would be interesting to read a write up of your migration process (if you ever find the time to write it!)

        Search is done, but the rebuilding of the user caches is only about half done, and it's no joke for the DB servers. lol

      Hey Man,

      DO you take on custom XF addon work, paid of course?

      Thanks,

        No sorry... don't have time to do my own projects unfortunately... definitely not enough time to do projects for others. :)

        Must have missed the reply... but it won't work with other's data (source or destination) in it's current form (was just built for in-house use)... But when I'm done with it, hopefully I can turn it over to someone who will turn it into some a little more generic.

      Have you looked into PHP Hip Hop by Facebook? It won't work with xenForo because of the few eval statements in the code. Do you think it's something that can be avoided somehow?
      1. digitalpoint
        digitalpoint
        It's a lot of effort to install HipHop with all it's dependencies. I've messed with it for fun, but really not worth the effort unless your website needs at least a few hundred web servers to run.

      I decided 16 days to do a full import of data to XF probably isn't going to cut it. Made one that can do it in under 30m.

        So how does someone like me go about importing anything that fast? I am working on a vB3.7 conversion to XF, plus I need the Sphinx add-on updated for 1.1.3 (as I don't want ES).

      I don't suppose the reordering of threads via drag and drop was one of the things you released? It looks amazingly and it would be something we are interested in :)

      Just a curiosity: why you doesn't considered IP.Board for a switch years ago?
      1. digitalpoint
        digitalpoint
        Not a big fan of IPB for whatever reason. Also a year or so ago, their plugin/addon architecture was terrible (not sure if it's better now or not).

      Oh DP you changed your pic! We can see more of your nice face on this one - but the other one was soooo cute.
      As a connoisseur of beautiful men I am torn between the two. Definitely torn.

      Any chance of working together in any way to profit from add-ons? Just a random question.

        Yeah just wondering... every known and again I think of how nice it would be to work with someone I could bounce code design etc off and ask people to see if they are interested in these types of things. I want to create a paid portal as there isn't a good system yet but don't have time to do it all by myself at the moment.

        There's also the issue of me having a "to-do" list of things I need to do for my OWN site that is about 4-5 years (assuming noting else gets added to it) worth of full-time work.

        Oh yeah, plus I'm spending about 60 hours/week rewriting more than 1,000,000 lines of existing code from my current site for XenForo (in addition to the "normal" work I still have to do).

        *You* don't have the time? ;)

        Yeah knew you had a lot to do, didn't think it was that much though. I am always available to help either paid or getting rights to things etc. When you convert to XenForo I'll be using your site a lot, would now but just don't like using vb at all. Will be talking to you later about making nice integration between my ad manager and your ad service as well. I'm happy to promote anyone who uses XenForo
