Default We will be Moving from SMF to vBulletin!!

We will be moving to vBulletin as soon as possible!

I am going to aim for performing the change over to the new software / vBulletin on February 4th 2008 - which is a Monday! KEEP Reading, VERY Important Information Concerning PASSWORDS In This Thread!

This will be a great move for the community! Better software and MORE features! It all comes at a price though. So for those of you that would like to donate, now would be a great time to do so!

The main part of this announcement is this ... With the new installation of vBulletin the forum information will need to be transfered over to the new database. The only thing that WILL NOT transfer over is going to be PASSWORDS (because we have passwords encrypted very well).

SO upon installation of the new forum software, you will have to "RESET" your PASSWORD.

Just want to be sure everyone is aware of that! So if you come on one day and find that you can't login, it is because you need to reset your password. I will provide you with a link to do that, when the time comes.

Cheers!

No Problem! I can understand that, donating is not required ... if someone really likes the Hookah Pro Community and wants to help out a little, then GREAT! But that is completely up to all of you, it is by no means required. It really does help with the costs though! In any case, I will try to find funds, looking in my couch cushions, junk drawers, under my car seat, etc ... hahaha

Cheers!

I am also curious does it carry over our post information like number of posts and stuff? I am just wondering because hookahpro has that contest going on right now that uses posts and topics and referrals in a point system. It would suck if all that were erased

Of course it does! You think I would let you guys down? And not transfer your stuff over? Of course not ... I will be transferring everything, only thing I can't transfer is passwords, because they are setup very secure here ... you will have to reset your password when you log in for the first time.

Once you are logged in you can explore! and do your profile section up nicely! I am sure you will all like the new forum much better! It is why I am paying for it financially and spending my free time working on it. Cuz I know in the end, you will all appreciate it

Cheers!

I will be sending a financial contribution since I spend so much time on the forum its only fair to contribute a little bit to roll back into the thing that provides me so much entertainment. I highly encourage everyone to take a look at your financial situation and give if you can. $1, $5, $10, $25 doesnt matter, every little bit helps. The software isnt free. Contact one of the mods or Sambooka via PM if you would like to help offset the cost of the new software.

We will still be moving, I had a busy weekend with some unplanned events. Hoping to get there this week, if not this week, then next Monday (because I don't want to do the switch on a Friday-Sunday) ... thanks for understanding!

.. the unplanned events and finances are why this is taking a little longer, because I have to do a lot of the implementations myself, instead of outsourcing for additional help from a developer that better understands vBulletin. It is money I don't have to spend, so I am going to have to do the programming and implementations myself but we will get there!! (no worries)

Thanks to all the "Elite Members" for your contributions, they have really helped us to get along this far! Many Thanks! and Cheers!

Stay Tuned! Good things are coming!

Default Re: We will be Moving from SMF to vBulletin!!

it is up actually, but I still have to import all the settings and work on the layout/theme. I don't have the money to hire someone to import this theme. So I will go with one similar for now ... till I get better acquainted with vBulletin and can do a new custom layout.

Patience, It will be soooo worth it! Just want to keep you all posted, and keep you informed of things! Things like ... you are GOING TO HAVE TO RESET YOUR PASSWORDS!! That is the most important part! Reason being, is because all of your current passwords are very well encrypted, I can't migrate them over because of the encryption ... the new forum will have equally as good encryption! No worries there your data will be protected well ... but on your first login you will have to reset your password, I will keep you informed.

Cheers!

Just want to bring this back up to the top, for some of the newer members. So everyone is aware of the new forum software. You WILL have to reset your password!

I am going to shut down the forum today and do a "dry test" run to see how the import goes.

Cheers!
