WE STILL IN THERE. All the likes are gone, gone for however long they will be gone for, but still in there.
Just means I can get 2000 all over again.
Long story short-ish...
The system was part of vBSEO. We've had to remove vBSEO due to the company being behind that ceasing operations, and their stuff causing problems with the latest versions of vBulletin.
We've installed a new addon to take care of *most* of those features that were in vBSEO. Another needs to be installed to take care of the post thanks/likes system however.
Due to our massive post database size, the installation of that addon requires us to run SQL queries manually, it'd time out if I simply tried to install the addon the normal way. That's also going to take a very very long time.
So....that's been left for another weekend. Preferably one where Zhen and I can put our heads together.
Hopefully will only be 1-2 weeks.
EDIT: Make that less than a day. ;)
