Code Update 20160803

August 4th, 2016
You'll be seeing a lot more updates relating to UBB.threads in the coming months, but this one is for the site code on The UBB.Wiki Project's core coding. We've finally rolled out the site updates to all of the core systems to allow for better SEO and overall site functionality. Additionally, we're now using CSS for the site gradients versus using images for them, which should speed up rendering times. Next, however, a good portion of the existing entries will need to be spruced up to take advantage of some of the newer BBCode and other updates.

Made some improvements to the file archive system today so that both an MD5 and SHA1 file hash are generated and displayed on the download page.

Adjustments and New Code!

March 28th, 2015
We've been redeveloping a lot of the CMS code here at Wiki in the last month or so; we wanted to make it easier for us to provide more content rich articles (basically making it easier to put photos in entries) and figured that since we where working on SSL support within UBB.threads that we should make sure the CMS code here can support it as well to reap the same benefits, which you'll learn more about in the coming months (teaser much?). We've done a ton of work since we chose to stop utilizing Mediawiki, and overall we're happy with the change; the site is cleaner, we're using much less resources on the server, and our caching code is keeping MySQL database usage at sane level. A lot of the recent updates here with the CMS code is primarily back end work; how things function, trying to pull a little more speed out of the site. In the latest of short term updates, we're optimizing how our coding for each site section's admin panel functions; optimization for each area trims a couple of Kb per file, and we're hoping that when we're done it'll trim off at least 100Kb of code (which is quite a bit) through optimizations (why should UBB.threads get all of the attention, lol). We hope that you've enjoyed the site over the years; remember, we've been users of UBB.threads for years, just like you; you deserve documentation, it's what we do!

UBB.Wiki New Systems

October 4th, 2014
As of October 5th, 2014 we've migrated away from utilizing MediaWiki for the UBB.Wiki Project and are now using a custom solution. The main reason for this change where all of the constant bugs and walls we've hit while managing items in MediaWiki, especially with the upgrade script, which made running a secure and "up to date" version nearly impossible. You'll likely notice that the system itself matches the VNC Web Services UI and Systems (which themselves exist for several other sites). We hope to be able to provide you with the same level of service which we have been providing over the years, only with a better design and better systems. If you're crafty enough to find a long standing bug that exists in the new system (which I'm working on squashing this week) you get a cookie :P.
