My apologies for missing the 11th. I got busy with other work unrelated to the site and had to focus on that.
It started out as a rough week, especially for me, but things have improved. Some big changes here that I think smoother out the migration quite a bit. Highlights for now:
- Search has filtering. (https://www.sqlservercentral.com/search) That’s a big one as I use that a lot
- URL Rewrites – more of these are working. Amazing how inconsistent we were in the past with URLs
- Author pages – fixed for individual authors and a full page at /author
- Leaderboard back at /totalscores
- Forums – fixed toolbar visibility. Apparently some people weren’t seeing this, which created confusion as all my test accounts and different machines did.
- Newsletter – TOC added back
- Newsletter archive back – https://www.sqlservercentral.com/newsletter-archive Older ones coming, but those are HTML so need a script to populate the page with them and then some paging mechanism
- DBW admin changes – not visible, but reduces a time sink
More stuff was fixed, but these are highlights. We’ve lost some time chasing down individual email issues or specific reports of a problem.
The Issue list is larger, 108 issues, but I’m adding more low priority items
- 17 or 18 forum issues, with some tricky formatting things to work out
- 6 newsletter items, including delivery issues being reported
- 4 Article items
- 5 admin issues, none high priority, but things I need fixed
- 2 high priority issues, so I’ll be tagging a few more today to kick them up the list
- 1 data migration issue related to calculating QotD scores. Has to do with multi-answer questions, of which we have few, but not too few
A number of items are enhancements, so I hope we start to see some new features roll out soon, but still we have a commitment to dig in and keep working through bugs next week.
Any questions, please ask.
