What's going on with the boards

Recommended Posts

This is a transitional period for Songfacts. We had a lot of trouble keeping the site fast and stable, so we did a lot of testing. We decided to upgrade our database software and make some code changes to get the searches moving faster. We also decided to upgrade the boards.

During the diagnostic process, we took down the boards so we could see what was going on and start the transition to the new boards. I wasn't sure these boards would work with the new software, but they seem to be doing OK. We'll keep a close eye on them and there's a chance we will have to take them down again if they clog the main site, but it will be just until we get the new system working.

Best case scenario:

Everything works great until we make a smooth transition to the new boards.

Worst case scenario:

We have to take the boards offline until we develop the new system (all existing posts and users should import).

I hated taking the boards offline, but we had to really hunker down and get these technical problems solved. To be clear: we love these boards and they're a very important part of the site. I'm hoping that in a few months, we can spend a lot less time dealing with technical issues and focus on the many exciting things we can accomplish here at Songfacts.

I've been checking this site every day, more than I have been the past couple of months just to see if it would be running back up again ::

Good work, y'all. Keeps music afficionados happy.

Whenever I do a search for anything, I get a SQL error and it always draws no matches, even for a simple word like "music".

The last 2 weeks, we've had a ton of traffic. The main site has held up very well, but the boards are having a hard time handling it. Fortunately, we're moving to a new system that will be much faster. We won't give up on you guys.

I understand the frustration when the boards are slow - I just ask that you guys at least periodicly check back because we will have a great system in place soon.
