Shutting down in 15 minutes.  There will be a group chat going on during the maintenance for those who can't bear to be without their SDC fix.  :wink:

We have our first bug.  Fortunately, it was not my fault.  It is a known issue with 2.0.2, yet they have not fixed it in the install files.  We're using the core theme, which is supposed to avoid me having to hack anything.  Just take a look at what they're expecting me to do by hand, instead of modifying the theme appropriately in the upgrade package:  http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=437428.0

I'll get to it, but it's going to take me a while.  grrrrr.

Our photo gallery is also missing.  Just the software.  The photos should be safe.

Good news:  I may have found an old copy of the arcade that I could get up and running.  It did pass the pre-installation tests. 

I'll need to make a fresh backup of the forum and shut it down again in order to repair these two things, but hopefully for only about 15-30 minutes.  I'll let you know when I'm ready to do that.  I want to make sure I have all the mod repairs ready to go at once, so I only have to shut the forum down once.
