    Beta 1 (Gilda, a beta version of software is still considered "not ready or stable enough for general public consumption) was just released a few hours ago. I'm going to set it up and explore it a little bit; when I think it's ready, I'll post a link here to the test board in case anyone wants to try it out and put it through its paces.

    As bugs are found and fixed, they'll be releasing new betas and I'll update the test board as appropriate.

    Here's the link, if anyone wants to check things out. Remember, the forum at this link is not the real board, so if you're trying to reply to someone "for real," be sure to do that here and not there!

    If anyone has any input or feedback on the new version, just post in the "Using the Boards" forum there so things don't get confused.

    Couple of things:

    Default avatars and smilies have not been loaded in yet.

    There is no spellcheck.



    Try replying to a few things, changing your options, start new threads, etc.

    Try not reading a post, log out, log back in. It should still be marked as unread.

    Anyway, if you have some time and want to leave feedback there, that would be great and much appreciated.

    Here's the link:



    By the way, logins and passwords are the same in both forums, but if you log in over there, you'll get logged out over here, and vice versa.

    This is the message I get when I click on something in the new version.

    Warning: main(/home/httpd/vhosts/rv-orchidworks.com/httpdocs/orchidtalknew/includes/class_postbit.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /showthread.php on line 87

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '/home/httpd/vhosts/rv-orchidworks.com/httpdocs/orchidtalknew/includes/class_postbit.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear') in /home/httpd/vhosts/rv-orchidworks.com/httpdocs/orchidtalknew/showthread.php on line 87

    I've tried this a few times now and keep getting that. It worked early this morning.

    Thanks Kev.

    Should be fixed now.

    Was back and forth with a vB developer all afternoon, and a file got munged.

    Cool Gin, thanks for trying it out.

    The bug reports have been coming in hot and heavy over at vB for this version; no one major thing but lots of piddly, irritating stuff they're getting fixed within 30 minutes or so of being notified. Assuming this is how it's going to go, once all of that has been updated and Beta 2 is released, I think I'm going to upgrade OrchidTalk to the new version. We'll see how it goes.

    Thanks to everyone who left feedback over at the test board!
