You’re looking at the brand new forums code. This is 100% new code that replaces 3rd party software we were using so we beg your tolerance up front when (not if) bugs appear.

The primary thing this fixes is that ‘disappearing’ reply buttons that was a plague on the system but also gives us total control over integration into the rest of ccMixter, so if you see any features that you’d like to see let us know.

NOTE:

All messages have been imported into the new system however the links within messages to other forum messages are (alas) broken.

There are few features from the old system that are missing from the new one, feel free to let us know which ones you miss the most so we can prioritize which ones to put back in first.

So, please bang away and let us know what’s broken in the new code.

Thanks!

Regarding feeds:

The good news is that every thread now has a feed.

The bad news is that you need to update your feed readers for the ‘all messages’ feed:

http://ccmixter.org/media/feed/rss/forums

Regarding search:

‘Advanced search’ is now forums aware, however the results are only for the last 30 matching messages. (No, I’m not proud of that, yes, that will be fixed.)

It will take google a few days to ‘find’ the new forums pages and reindex them but after that you should be able to use the google search feature to find any text on the site, including these forums.
