Blame Invis, he broke it and is the reason the "spinning circle" was there. I fixed it to work the way he created it but it's still pretty much an empty post.

Feel free to edit it, and don't use external links for the primary image... If not I'll find something else.

lawl, the "way I edited it" was with the Joomla editor - and I tried both from the frontpage and from within the actual admin backend. If you have the URL, you actually CAN edit it and the post information is all there. However, due to whatever garbage error it's spitting out, it doesn't show up on the page and just spins forever - external image or no.

It's a Joomla error. Until you update/fix Joomla or replace it, the front page can't be updated. Hopefully your fix either involves a way to have properly updated news/posts (read: a person) or is a forum redirect. If you're not sure what's current and don't have someone to post it, get rid of it. It makes the site look bad.

Sweet, you fixed it! Now that is one fine looking front page if I may say so myself.

Foot In mouth eh? Check before ranting next time.

It is in fact not a joomla error. It was, as I already said, the external image link you used that caused the problem. When you submit it there is an error that displays on the backend but it doesn't affect the success of saving a post.

Nah, it was doing that without the external image as well (as I already said™). Good to see you got it running, though! Now let's see that proper front end. (And, as always, if you need some help getting whatever it set up, I'm game. After all, I think I've been bitching about that front page longer than anyone else.)

Actually I think you're in second.
You CAN edit your post now if you want. If you want to change the image let me know. It's not just making it local, you have to use the stupid image upload tool joomla provides so it's in a folder with permissions to auto-create the smaller thumbnail image...

Wouldn't a portal solution for phpbb be more suitable than Joomla?

I haven't used a forum portal yet to make a website (I used Joomla on my guild's site though), but as far as I know their purpose is to support a forum with a front page structure, providing several forum-related modules to be used in it. Actually, I'm asking cause I don't know if the shop (the only unrelated thing to the forum on the front page) could be created in something like that.

At the moment we're just going to pull the whole thing down, get back to a basic phpbb3 install and fresh updates (should mean less spam bots too) and then figure out where to go from there.

I have looked into the portal idea, as well as a more static page, as well as more integrated options like wp-united and so on. I haven't really found what I'm looking for. So in the meantime we'll revert back to just forums. I can already hear Nika and Invis cheering.


The question now is when to do it. The site will be down for a while...

I wouldn't suggest doing it during WoW maintenance... otherwise we might be forced to work/go outside *gasp* :lol:
