Re: Profile issues 2 years, 6 months ago #5028

Andrew,

Yes the user migration might be ideal, but re-registration will give the site a good clean up too. Would you still have email addresses for current registered users? You could advise them if the re-registration is required.

Thanks for the site too, I've learned plenty about the do's and don'ts on my DR-Z here.

It may end up going that way but I am going to try everything I can first even if it means writing custom sql scripts to extract the data out and insert it into the new site.

It's just not that simple as the tables between the old and new systems for the user accounts have different fields etc so I have to map what goes where.

Your welcome I only wish I wasn't without a DRZ for the last three years so that I could have put some content up.

I will be looking for moderators/admins in the future once I get the new site up and it gets some traction.

It's all good mate, 3 years ago I didn't even think I'd own a Bike! Sing out if you need a hand, I'm fairly new to the site but there's a few regulars and even newbies you'd be able to rely on.

If I can do anything to help, just let me know, seasoned rider OK with computers but no SQL writer.

Thanks guys for offering support.

I made a bit of progress tonight I was able to prove that copying the username and hashed password key to the new system works, not that simple as instead of being in one simple user table it now lives in three tables but I now know it is possible.

Next I will work on copying the forums over.

Starting to get excited about getting a DRZ again.

I have sold my 2012 drz and am getting a 2015 rmx450. I would like to see the site opened up to other bikes.
cheers

Re: Profile issues 2 years, 6 months ago #5038

Theofanes,
if drz400e.com was opened up to all bikes wouldn't it be just like every other forum? The RMZ's not so bad because of the similarities but the one think I like about this site is I don't have to search to see posts about my bike because the whole site is about my bike.
Just my thoughts.

How did you go with this , Have you got something up and running?

Re: Profile issues 2 years, 5 months ago #5048

G'day Andrew

I'm a newcomer and my name is Nick. Hang in there mate it's all worth the effort. I'll wait out to see what happens as I love these bikes and are keen to share the passion. I own two fairly new DSRZ400s and think their great bikes.
Take it easy.

Regards

Nick

Hey Nick , you have two of them ? your as mad as me lol I have two as well .. Andrew you will have to come down geelong way , and we can make a weekend of it ??? Or get a few together and organise a ride ???

Yes mate two DRZ's 2 years, 5 months ago #5050

Yes I got two of them after my first one got stolen. I was tossing up whether to buy either a Husky 501 for local dirt riding or a Yamaha 660 Tenere for adventure touring. In the end after doing the sums I figured I could buy two new DRZ's for only a little more and set one up to do each. The best of both worlds.
Only problem was breaking the news to the missus. She didn't quite get my logic. Women hey!
