Prepare4Descent.net Moving to Planet Descent
« on: October 01, 2011, 07:46:50 AM »
DescentiaPedia, The Descent Guides Project Forum, as well as all the static pages at Prepare For Descent will be moving to Planet Descent. There is no timeline for this move, but it will be soon. Watch this thread for further news.

Ultimately, the goal is to merge the sites. Tiny portal has a nice article system and all the pages from DescentiaPedia will become articles. Threads from The Descent Guides Forum may become articles or perhaps the will be merged with the Planet Descent forum.

This is something I have been considering for some time. However, the domain registration is up for renewal shortly so I have decided not to renew it at this time.

Wow, that is awesome - I didn't even know it existed.
Good luck with the organise. These things are always time-consuming but I'm sure a lot people will be very interested to see the outcome.

Part of the reason I think the move is a good idea; it'll help sort out some of those issues in the process.

I didn't even know about that place, but it sounds sweet!

Consolidation = less maintenance. Should be good!

The domain expired at prepare4descent.net. The Descent Guides Project Forum is up at prepare4descent.planetdescent.net/guidesforum/ temporarily. Expect broken links until I fix them. I'll move DescentiaPedia soon.

Internal broken links are easy to fix (You should be using relative links anyway, imo...) but you can't fix all the links to your site from other sites and posts.

Unfortunately, that can't be helped.

hmm, posts ... you could maybe download the database and do a find-and-replace for the root directory/domain name in Notepad.
I've never tried that before but for God's sake, if you do try it, keep a copy of the original database the way it was, in case.

It's a bit of a hair-brained idea but ...

Everything needs to be copied to the article system here anyway. So any outbound links will be fixed then.

Oh, thanks for reminding me I need to post an announcement about the upgrade here. No, P4d will not be upgraded at that time, it will stay with SMF1.x. The idea is to extract all the useful articles and copy them to here. If that ever gets finished the p4d forum can be deleted. And the same with DescentiaPedia.

There is no need for three places of this information.
