what's up with the site?

For off-topic and non-football related topics such as life, TV, movies, women, video games, etc. If you want to talk other sports, such as MLB, NBA, soccer, etc. this is also the right place.

Sorry, I just upgraded the board software the other night. I tried to do the automatic upgrade without having to download all the new phpBB files and then unzip them and upload them to the website, which can take anywhere between 30-60 minutes for the entire process. I figured the automatic upgrade would take like 2 minutes. It wound up taking like 20-30 because they made me have to make decisions about merging some of the other version's files with the new files.

To be honest, I really had no idea what I was doing. And I figured something might get screwed up. Well Waz, you've rooted it out.

Ahh, I fixed it. The powers of Google.

Basically there was a bug in all the previous versions of phpBB. In the board's admin control panel, there is an option that asks for each forum would you like to show active topics. And regardless of whether you selected yes or no, it would display them. The default setting is no, and I never changed it since it never really mattered.

But with the new update (v3.0.6), they fixed the bug. So now that the settings were at no, it didn't show them. I just went back and changed them to yes, so now it's fixed.

Obviously you didn't really need the explanation, but you know me...I don't believe in brevity.
