As promised, we have a Beta release for VampireFreaks 3.0 for you!
This is a complete rewrite of all of the VF code from the ground up. VampireFreaks 1.0 was actually all static html pages plus a messageboard. Vampirefreaks 2.0 is the current social network version, which has been around since 2004.
A lot of things have been optimized, modernized and generally fixed up for the rewrite.
The rewrite is using the latest web technologies and is designed to be cleaner, more organized, easier to navigate and modern looking, with a focus on mobile-friendly design.
It is about 95% complete right now, I know there are still a few features missing as I am rewriting 11 years worth of code but this is just a beta release for testing purposes and to get your overall feedback!
Rather than forcing everyone to switch over right away, this is your chance to give your comments / suggestions and we will try to fix up the final version accordingly. The good news about this rewrite is it means we will be getting site code updates and fixes pretty frequently.
Some initial notes:
Profile layouts are a bit different but I tried my best to make existing custom profile HTML still look OK on it. There are additional css classes / ids but I may be modifying these to make profile editing more consistent.
Cult layouts are pretty much the same.
Still working on sorting out a few of the premium features such as 'broadcasts', adding more privacy / support features, band features, messageboard stuff, email notifications and a few other things.
The 'ratings' system is gone for now but I'm still figuring out if it will come back or if we will have something else. I'm thinking we just replace them with 'user props' where you click a button on their profile to give a user props.
The frontpage design is also still a work in progress. It does look different depending on if you are logged in or not.
If something is missing I probably already know about it and it is on my todo list.
This is a work in progress! I estimate it will take a month to get it completely done and fix it up based on any input. So let us know what you think so far.
