Back on Mac OS 9 Lives
« Reply #20 on: March 05, 2024, 01:21:46 AM »

First off, good to be back in the forum! Has been over a year or so ? How have ya'll been doing? I guess I have a lot to read up :-)

I for one don't miss any of the forum plugins, but then it's probably a routine thing. If you've used the stuff for, say, two years on a daily basis, you'd sure miss the feature. I think Knez will look into what's possible and offer up solutions. I haven't known him to be a only-my-way-is-the-right-way type of person, so come time, come (optional, maybe?) features!

That said, thank you very much Knez for investing the time and money to keep Mac OS 9 Lives online and thanks to DieHard for giving it into capable hands!

@Jatoba - yeah, very fast on Classilla on my Mac Mini too. I shall power up the Pismo later to check how it fares there. There's certainly the possibility to write a more efficient theme for the forum to accomodate for even older / slower machines / people with shitty internet connections. I've done that for the System 7 Today forum, which also runs on SMF. Could be an optional theme for Mac OS 9 Lives too, if there's interest?

@Knez - is the mainpage coming back? I liked the personal way @DieHard wrote about using Mac OS 9 and it served as an excellent intro to people who may be returning to Mac OS 9 after decades or are completely new to it.

Also, running into trouble when trying to go to --> Profile -> Modify Profile -> Forum Profile from Classilla 9.3.4 with JavaScript off. It stalls on that page at what looks like trying to load some content. I have to close the tab to get out. Can somebody reproduce the error?

Yes! Let's discuss this :)

As in the http://macos9lives.com website? It's already there and we're working on some very cool new content for it  8)

Yes! It's the same for me. Not sure if that used to happen on the old host as well. Probably though, since the base theme for the site is the same still.
Let me invenstigate.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

First priority is to move the downloads from Google Drive to something more manageable (and from DieHard, so he doesn't have to manag them). When that's done I'll look into the missing features :)
