Forum Upgrade / Maintenance

I am considering migrating SDF to IPBoard(invisionPower), looking for some member feedback and thoughts/experiences?

I've used vbulletin since 2003 on DefenceTalk and then on SDF and few other sites that I own, it was a GOOD software but 4.x turned out to be a nightmare and 5.x doesn't look so good or promising and it is very expensive to upgrade.

Just curious, how does SDF generate enough revenue to keep the site going?

Also, would IPBoard support Tapatalk?

AirForceBrat,

I am not sure about that, did you check your subscriptions to threads? I am getting notification emails.

It would support (it is really up to tapatalk to provide support for products they deem necessary) it.


SDF hardly generates any revenue (which is okay), it is hosted on same server as DefenceTalk so DT takes care of SDF. ;)

We maybe moving to new, better and faster server soon as well.

Searching my memory, I believe I tried to cancel my subscription to the old Ukraine thread, (it was driving me crazy), I think, and then they were all gone, on my phone, laptop, and desktop. So I have been on the forum sight, and it tells me I am still subscribed to all the threads???? I'm NOT techy at all boss, I still have an analogue brain, I will try to get the twins to look at it, one of them might bang onto my problem, if it were my security it would still come over on my mobile, but they all three dried up at once, and I really do miss them.

I am still getting thread up-dates from Defense Talk??? so wow?

You may have to go back and take care of those subscriptions again. We haven't made any changes to DT since vb4 turned out to be a pain in the neck at SDF. ;)

I am also looking into Xenforo software, IPB has some competition. :D

Hello Everyone,

SDF has now migrated to new forum software. Feedback welcomed! Please report any issues or bugs you come across so I can fix.

Your avatars and attachments (pictures in posts) should be restored shortly so those will come back if you don't see them right away.

There are many new features, including
  • the new UI,
  • new PM (conversations) system,
  • notifications and ability to get alerts on virtually anything that happens around the forum, your posts, your threads, profiles,
  • login using your facebook, twitter or google accounts
  • tag other members with simply @memberName and
  • many more, look around and explore.



thanks and enjoy!
