Wordpress Versus PHPBB3 - It Is Not Rocket Science

Once again, without confusion, I offer a proverbial olive branch to the people at MJHD. No I am not going soft. No I am not confused because Tis_Ruthy commented (btw - Hi Ruthy, we miss you). And finally, no I am not such an asshole that I wish to watch the painful experiences over at MJHD continue.

OK, on the forum thread "Wordpress or not? VOTE" some members mentioned pulling all the information from the Wordpress forum over to the PHPBB3 forum. Great idea; and easy to implement.

On the front page of MJHD it is stated that the database is corrupt, and for someone to fix it is going to cost $300. That is not so good.

So here is the proverbial olive branch: I can repair the database, and also transfer the Wordpress information over to PHPBB3 - and as a seeker of the truth; I will do it for free.

Technical information (a little boring but necessary): The old forum of MJHD is actually a Simple Press forum; which in turn basically uses MySQL as a backbone database. PHPBB3 also uses MySQL database. In transferring one to the other it is merely telling the PHPBB3 database where to put the fields/information from the Simple Press forum (for example Simple Press may have used user_id_number and PHPBB3 may be using user_id). It is all about mapping the old database to the new database. Nothing technical really. Using phpMyAdmin it is just a case of mapping various databases and fields etc from one to the other.

As for repairing the database, for free and not paying $300, some friends over at Database Journal have already discussed this and provided step-by-step instructions to do this. Here is the link for repairing MySQL database corruption.

Once again if any of that seems like it was written in a foreign language, or is too technical for the new Admins (hereafter referred to as Silverfish and Nightmare) I offer my services free; for the sake of the MJHD members.

Peace.

With everything that's transpired recently...

I now fully understand why they made such a big fancy shmancy announcement that they were taking the "computers" to a specialist with a Masters...

...When, and to be perfectly honest, anyone can figure that shit out in two seconds...

They made it sound like this problem is SUCH A BIG DEAL...when really...anyone with the basic knowledge can just go in there and fix it.

The blind leading the blind...priceless.


Oh these last posts and comments...have made me laugh so hard, EPIC! You are all so awesome! LOL! :)

I'm sure they made a comment that it will cost 300 to fix so they can add the donate button again.

I was thinking the same thing when I read about the 300 to get their shit fixed. They play innocent and then come out of the woodwork with this and that, trying to find a way to cash in without making it look too obvious. Lame. It's just a matter of time until the donate button will reappear again.
All their talk about the technical difficulties and problems suck ass. It's all BS. Just another scam. Hilarious! The beginning of the end, once again. LOL!

It is a scam and I can't believe all the people who believe what they say. The bad thing is, they don't learn. I still say Amy is very much a part of the site still.

Kind of strange MJkit forum had glitzes. It further confirms my suspicions about them as well. I still say souza and mo are chummy with Amy. I predicted MJKit would go through some kind of glitz and what do you know..it happened. Wonder when the book will be published. Now thisisalsoit is redirecting to a certain thread on that forum. How dumb can people be to believe it's a clue. Now I know the speed of stupid.
