Status of the website "Per-Heh"
- Hits: 26
Something rather unexpected has happened. The previous Per-Heh website, which was under development, was suddenly afflicted with compatibility issues from the operating system which it normally runs on. These issues effectively shut down the site, as you would only see random errors. In response to this, we have had to decide how to move forward with the website. Our choices were limited to either rebuilding with the current version of the software which powers our site, or alternatively work on rebuilding our site with a beta version of our content management system.
As the direct cause of this error came from the operating system, we decided to start rebuilding the site with the beta version of our content management system, for a couple of reasons.
- It contains the latest code and updates, thus having the smallest possibility for compatibility issues.
- It eliminates the need to do multiple updates to get to the current version of the software, when it is finally released. This eliminates possible errors that could occur through the update process.
- This beta release candidate will be able to update to the final version once it becomes available.
- Components of the site will be tailored to the current version, instead of waiting for the components to update to support this current version.
As this software is still in it's beta stage, there may be bugs that occur. This is normal as the software is still being developed. In fact we have already found one such bug, that is nothing more than an annoyance, and will cause you to have to log back in to the site. These bugs will be addressed by the people who wrote the software, over time.
There has been no data loss. All of our previous content has been preserved, however it will take time to manually import all of that information from our older database to our new database. There is no way to simply automate the process. More updates on this process will occur as the work progresses.
Thank you, please feel free to come back and visit to see the work that has been done.
