Announcement: New Discourse Site to Go Live this Weekend

Update: Both the new site and site are live.

We plan to set this site ([ICODE]www.unix.com[/ICODE]) to [ICODE]read only[/ICODE] and there will be no new registrations here after this weekend.

I plan do the "final" migration on Saturday or Sunday and will put a banner up on this site to mention the site and the details.

When the cutover is made all members will need to do the "lost password" thing to create a new (stronger) password (this step has been tested). Password and PMs will not migrate to the new Discourse site.

Basically, we plan to leave this site up as a "read only" reference and all new Q&A will be on the new, modern, site.

Everyone who has tested the new site so far has commented how great it is; and how much better it is than this old, legacy site; and I'm sure everyone will love it; especially mobile users but it's great on desktop top too.

Thanks to all the moderators who tested over the past few days. Every mod who tested loved it.

Wait, we'll get a new url?
Or will 'this page' just move to an archive dir?

This site will stay the same, READ ONLY.

The new site will have a new name which I will put in the banner of this site when the cutover is done.

It will be easy to find, do not worry.

All the links here will remain the same for the foreseeable future.... but all the posts will migrate to the new site. In fact, they are all already migrated except for the past few hours. Tomorrow I will make this site read only and do the final "sync" before making this site a "reference site".

All your posts, status and your "thanks" (converted into "likes") will remain the same; except you will have higher status on the new site Smilie

In the future, may work on changing all permalinks on the new site to match this one, but I don't see any compelling reason to do it. For the next few months, both sites will link to each other in various ways.

Cheers.

You can post as normal, as I will sync all the latest posts this weekend when we go "read only"....

FYI:

We have started the process of the "final migration" to the new community site.

New posts and new registrations on [ICODE]www.unix.com[/ICODE] are disabled.

Details on the site site coming soon.

Please stand by and thank you for your patience.

Update:

The moderation team has decided to open both forums, the old vB forum (this one) and the new one (Discourse forum) for the time being.

We want to get more user feedback and also consider fixing some small nits related to how code is preprocessed on the discourse side, from here.

Scrutinizer did an excellent check and notice that the preprocessing of the code in posts turned \n in code fragments to hard new lines in the results on discourse.

We are looking into the best was to fix this.

Hi Neo...

Will we still need our old user and password for this site, because if it is read only then they are not really required.

When the day comes where this site is read-only all logins processes will be disabled so password hashes in a DB are mostly irrelevent.

Cheers.
