Fixes To Arcadesters.com as of 25/03/2018 - antz - 25-03-2018

Hello Everyone,
I hope you are having an epic day, I've got some updates to Arcadesters.com so here they are.

- Arcadesters.com moved to a new server hosting provider (Allows us to use more resources).
- Arcadesters.com's DNS now being provided by cloudflare (If the server goes down, it'll still be online regardless and I'll be alerted too)
- RSS Feeds bots stopped for now to allow more user generated content first (May re-enable in future but more spaced out and not all at the same time so it doesn't seem so spammy)
- All RSS feed bot posts moved to a private forum for now to allow people to use the forum more better.
- Fixed some images and files which were requiring manual updating to HTTPS
- Arcadesters.com NOW USES HTTPS! You are now 100% more secure to use Arcadesters! not only that, using this forum will benefit your SEO greatly vs non-HTTPS forum providers that are not us!
- Ran database optimization & image optimization.
- Forum CMS updated to the latest secure build.

That's it for now but more to come! have an epic day!



EDIT: 26/03/2018
- Improved SEO URL's have been added to the forum Example: (thread-1.html now redirects to Thread-Arcadesters-com-Rules) this has effected all URLs within the forum.
- New media embed feature added with support for the following listed below.

Embed Media Support:
- Attachments, AVI, DIVX, FLV, MKV, MP3, MP4_M4U, MPG, Quicktime MOV, Real, SWF, Windows Media formats.
- Auto detecting of hosts such as YouTube, DailyMotion, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, RuTube, Spotify, Vimeo, Yandex, Vevo, Flickr, Kickstarter and more. (Just paste the URL and it'll auto generate a player)



Regards,
Antz

Thanks 2and1,
I'm working on an extra light theme to be added, better notifications for threads and posts, report private messages functionality. MyBB for now is just the standard base of the forum, I hope to in future move across to a better CMS like "Invision Community" or "vBulletin" in the future so I can expand the functionality of this forum by adding improved community features. I might tap on Mark for his coder on how he did a few internal functions on TalkArcades.

Regards,
Antz

Don't forget Xenforo too. Nice bit of kit that one.
