New Peppermint webhost in progress
« on: June 07, 2020, 06:54:36 pm »
Hi Everyone,
I've finished the first step in migrating us off of our old host.

For the next few days you'll notice an extremely generic forum theme and no security certificate. As well as some broken features.

I need to let the DNS propagation of our new host complete before tackling the finer features of our forum such as logos, avatars, shortcuts and everything we're accustomed too.

In the meantime feel free to upload avatar and comment and reply around as usual.

Thanks everyone,
Joe

Good morning everyone,
Looks like the DNS completed overnight and everything appears to be working as expected. Here's whats on my plate for this evening.
  • Install SSL cetificate for https
  • Add Posts menu to the forum for easier navigation

Hope all is well.
Joe

Evening everyone,
I performed a few updates I'd like to let you all know about.
  • SSL Certificate is now in place for HTTPS
  • Font adjustments for slightly larger and darker text
  • Recent Post Menu Restored
  • Peppermint Favicons now appear in browser tab

Email notifications are still not functional so that's next on my list.  ;)

Thank you, josephd, for updating and maintaining Peppermint.  Since I see the forum is up and running again, I thought I should tell you, just in case that you didn't know, that our start pages are down.  But, again,  josephd, thank you updating our beloved Peppermint, as well as moving us off the old host!  :)

or

[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

Pepp favicon doesn't always show on tab. I like the slightly darker font, but it might be to big for some. But one can always ctrl minus ;)

tried that and i can't find a suitable size, looks like the only way to fix this issue, is to go back to the old font, which nobody ever complained about until it was changed....
