I will be tinkering with the site tomorrow; both forum and main site. There may be temporary issues or complete down time.

Sorry for the unannounced down time. The site has been moved to a completely new server. I've also done a bunch of optimization on the back-end. You should have better performance now, let us know if it is better or not. Lastly, the forum has a new simple mobile theme! Tapatalk plug-ins are still installed for those who prefer an app. The mobile theme will auto-detect your phone/tablet, but you can manually switch via the links at the bottom of most pages (a couple are at the top). Switching themes will kick you back to the board index, I am working on fixing that script.

I will be working on the site over the weekend. I don't plan for any down time, but it is a possibility. I will be addressing the site performance issues that some have been having, adding security and stability updates, updating info for the new season, and (hopefully) be adding new content to the main site.

The site should be running better for everyone. I know it may not be perfect, I'm working on loading speeds still.

Clicking on smilies and bbcode (bold, italic, underline, etc.) when submitting a post in the forums are working again.

Have you looked at this at all?

It's almost like it's something bigger than yourself.

Yep! Thanks for the tip. I've been using page speed and a wordpress-specific tester. I've been trying to evaluate the forum manually though. :roll:

The forum app that we support recently updated the HD variant to version 4 on Android. They're having a sale to celebrate with the app at just 99 cents (normally 4.99)! I like the app, since it adds notifications and lower data use. To accommodate all users, we will keep both the mobile theme and app capability live, as long as they don't affect performance.

Hockey season is approaching fast. I'll try to make as much time available as I can to make the site run and look better by the time the puck drops.

A few names for forums have been changed.
SCSU Huskies has been changed to Men's Hockey, for ease of use and consistency.
Men's Division I has been changed to Other Hockey Teams, to open discussion to men's and women's teams.
Mc. Rudy's has been changed to On The Bench, since Mc. Rudy's bar is now closed. Temporary change, new name TBD.

I will, hopefully, be bringing the main site back up tomorrow before the coach's show.

The main site is back up. Unfortunately, the server didn't like some of the updates that I was preparing. Once I made them active, the sever stopped responding. I am already working on a HUGE server upgrade to get the site looking and working great.

The logo isn't up yet, I'm working on scaling it to look good. I will be up by Friday.

A store is live, but we don't have product yet. The product in the store are dummy items that I mocked up in a couple minutes. For now, it is just proof-of-concept, but will have actual product to purchase asap. On the same note, I will up upgrading the server to secure connection (https) to keep payment processing secure.

The forum menu is not updated to match the main site yet. Again, it will be asap, tomorrow or tuesday.

There are a few other minor bugs that have arisen, they'll be cleared out as soon as possible as well.
