Site Updates
« on: January 01, 2010, 09:27:21 PM »
Did some site updates to the CMS system on the main page nycfire.net  This is part of the overall goal of updating the forums to the next version of the software.

However due to the spam bots attacking the site, I updated the firewall, deleted all the forums files and installed with fresh copies.  So you may see some small changes or things missing due to compatibility issues.

The bots were somehow bypassing the registration process, so the problem has to be with the files/database.  I am hoping with all the fresh copies we can put a stop to this.

I will be testing the new forum software on another part of the server to see if we can get it up and running.  That version doesn't seem to be getting attacked by the bots for some reason.

Thanks for the info, Tom.  Like always, you're doing a great job.   Hopefully we'll see fewer spam posts.  One comment though:  I really miss the red bullets for new posts . . . maybe you can pass that along to the software folks.

Thank you Tom for all the work you do. This is the premiere fire site. I am really glad my brother (EFD) introduced me to the site.

A Happy and Healthy New Year Tom, to you and your family.

Ditto.   The blue icons are really drab.

Site looks outstanding!! However, I tried playing the FDNY Dispatch Tones and got nothing.  Is it me or are they not working?  Happy & Healthy New Year to all!

Will work on a new format for the tones. You need media player installed.
