Feedback on the new site provider

Hi Derek,
Thanks for reviving this site with a new provider.

Hi Everyone,
Let's provide feedback on any problems with this new site provider.

I've noticed one already. If you attempt to link a picture using the [img /img] tags, even if the picture isn't too big and within the acceptable size such as:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... Jersey.png

You immediately get an error message showing:
It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct.

祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。
改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。
祝你老鼠年行大運。
恭喜西雅图海鹰直到第四十八屆超級盃最終四十三比八大勝曾拿下兩次超級盃冠軍的丹佛野馬拿下隊史第一個超級盃冠軍。

In addition, if you try to embed video links using [media /media] such as:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCt6i0LBOEs

You get a message showing:
You cannot use certain BBCodes: <media>

It looks like existing pictures and videos that were already posted are okay, but not new pictures and videos.

Re: Feedback on the new site provider

you are correct but I think that's more of a software issue that will in time be resolved with the next release

I'll try the youtube now because the video you linked to wasn't available


tada!

Okay, let me know when the next version is released so that both the IMG and MEDIA can be embedded for pictures and videos.

I don't know how you got the YouTube working as for me, I only see the YouTube URL:



And it looks like the member's profile has been diminished as the user's avatar is smaller, and there used to be an entry on number of messages posted, when first joined, and where you are from and all that has been removed as well.

Re: Feedback on the new site provider

Sometimes the embedded video works but sometimes it doesn't.

It looks like there are two types of URL's that you can do for copy and paste:

1. The URL from the address site on the browser:



2. The URL obtained if you click on the video and select Copy video URL:

Re: Feedback on the new site provider

With the picture and media links fixed, then will the user profile information be reinstated?

Beside each user, there used to be information such as:

1. Total Posts
2. Location
3. When first joined

I guess you can still look at the user's profile to see such information:
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=3

And in the case of an accidental or double posting, there should be a feature that deletes the entire posting.

Re: Feedback on the new site provider

Up until the last few weeks, the site had been very good--posting was much better than pre-2020.

Lately it went from time-out errors before pages load (in both Chrome and Opera). The past few days I noticed some new posts and wondered how they were done. The site is still seriously broken but at least you get pages loaded (barely) and stable enough to post.

Re: Feedback on the new site provider

The current software was updated last week but I’ve actually been considering a move to an entirely different software the problem is it would require totally new registration and profiles and all the current content would be lost as there is no patch available to move the current content to the new software I have in mind

In the site's current state of taking forever to load a page and periodic 404 timeouts something has to change. Wiping the site and "starting anew" is very risky, but if the choices are status quo or move to new clean/faster software + host, then I would say do the later.

The number of users who regularly post to this site is pretty low. Provided people are notified (send e-mails if possible) and a familiar look is retained, I think you can get most of the regulars to re-register.

Re: Feedback on the new site provider

Lionbackers was one of my "Go-To" sites up until this latest wrinkle. I would check the site each morning and often during the day. Now, it is almost an afterthought to check to see if I can get into the site. If the site is slowly loading, I don't bother continuing with it.

The Lionbackers has been the most thoughtful, insightful and informative CFL fan site that I have found, and I would love for it to continue, especially with the imminent return to CFL Football.

Archiving the current content of the site may provide a way to keep the content handy should a way to incorporate the two sites in the future arise. I'm not a techie, so don't even know if this is a possibility.

While it would be a shame to lose some of the historical postings (especially the educational postings from the VERY knowledgeable participants (you know who you are!), I am more than willing to re-register if that is what it takes to move forward. I would hope that the vast majority of others users feel the same way.
