IMPORTANT: Forum migration in November 2019 (Miscellaneous)

Meanwhile I prepared a test system at https://www.bttr-software.de/forum2/.

Please do your testing in forum2 until November 15th!

Important: Anything posted to "forum2" will be lost, when I'm doing the final migration. So please post only test messages to "forum2".

To help you to distinguish between both forum installations, I set forum2's name to "[Test] DOS ain't dead" and its header and footer background colors to red.

Your logins from this forum should also work with "forum2", because I copied the underlying database.
But if you change your password in this forum, it won't be reflected to "forum2" and vice versa.

Testing may include:
- creating new messages
- editing existing messages
- changing your password
- changing your other profil data
- uploading images
- use of special chars like German umlauts

Please post your valuable feedback only here to this thread! -- Thanks in advance! :flower:

In "forum2" I changed character encoding from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 (Unicode). I therefore had to run many MySQL UPDATE commands to fix database entries with characters now escaped/masked invalidly. -- Not sure what this means for any Arachne or Links users. Are there any?
