May 2011 we went from DragonFly CMS (php) to DotNetNuke CMS (C#) to which we added the YetAnotherForum extension to.

Think of DotNetNuke as a box, and YetAnotherForum was put inside of it. Well, we don't use any of the DNN features and it causes some quirky things with YAF that frankly, I grew tired of. I wanted more control over the layout and design. To achieve that, I have removed YAF from the DNN box and we're throwing the DNN box to the curb.

Don't get me wrong, DNN is great, I like it a lot, it just doesn't fit PackersHome's needs.


Oh yeah, using YAF without DNN will improve the speed of the forums. ;-)




You might some weird things over the next couple days. Feel to post them here as you see them so I can build a checklist.


Things to do ...


  • Upload Smiley graphics - done
  • Upload Album graphics - done
  • Fix NoAvatar graphic - done
  • Fix Chrome NavBar placement - done
  • Confirm Email notifications work - done
  • Confirm password retrieval works - done

  • Subdomain forum.packershome.com for packershome.com/Forum.aspx - done
  • replace the "heart" for the applause notification.
  • Change Login and Register links to be more visible to Guests. - done
  • Edited by user to Edited by actual username.- resolved
  • Add shadow border to left an right edges

So far, you're the only one (oh wait nerdmann too) that has posted after I put the new design live. lol.

I'm worried no one can get in, or worried that we're really ... REALLY dead haha

this works for me. I did notice the posts I made under the NoEqualSolutions.info site are not here. But then I suspect you already knew that.

looks like the posts over there count here too. Let me double check.

edit- nope post count does not carry over from one site to the other.

Hmm, appears the subdomain graphics.packershome.com is not working. I've updated your signature path so it works for now until that is resolved. Thanks for the heads up.

Works slick. I thought you said you did a redesign. I see nothing significantly different about the appearance.

I've completely removed DotNetNuke and built my own flavor of the sites core. The forums have not changed, except they've had their performance enhanced. If you go to PackersHome.com you'll notice the difference in appearance.
