      Surfcaster's 2016 Reboot!   09/21/2016

      Howdy, folks. I know this is way overdue, and the damage is probably already done, but after weeks of working with the database I've finally wiped out all of the spam posts and topics. This was no easy task, considering there were three-quarters of a million bogus posts and nearly three hundred thousand bogus topics. Once a hacker/spammer network finds a vulnerability, they send out automated programs that basically destroy a database like this. Over the past couple weeks I've migrated all of the good data into a more current, secure platform with the hopes that we can somehow rebuild. New member registration is tightened way up, and a third-party spam monitoring service is in place. I've also invested in an awesome new gallery extension,  allowing members to create, manage, and share image galleries. Please give it a try, and let me know if there are any issues. I'm still testing and working out the bugs. Surfcaster's forums were once an amazing resource for everyone to enjoy, and we're hoping it can once again build back up. The main site (non-forums) is pretty banged up, but once the forums are complete my next task is to re-invent that as well. Spread the word. Hope to see a lot of you back! Cheers, Andrew

    good job nice to see the site fixed.

  3. Uhg... so true. I wish I knew why.
  4. Do you know of any other places I can take the jeep out into the dunes? Also, where do I get a permit? Cheers!
  5. Anyone... ? I'd love to out by the surf!
  6. Yeah so, I had no clue until I logged in to check for updates that the email system on this site has not been working. I just updated the code, tested and it should be good now. Apparently no validation emails, or anything has been going out... Uhg...
  7. I've heard there are locations around Plum Island that (with a permit) you can drive onto the beach to fish. Anyone have any insight into this?
  8. Great deal... check out the entire package
  9. Good lord.... http://narragansett.patch.com/articles/top-striped-bass-caught-off-block-island-2

  11. I walked on the Salisbury res a couple days ago. Those disks are everywhere. I took this:
  12. Just an FYI; we traffic is picking up since the latest round of updates. It looks like the new interface and search optimization is doing it's thing. Good stuff... !
  13. Thanks folks. I have a ton that I want to do. Updating the forums was the first step. As always, I'd love some feedback on what you all want or don't want. I'll get this suck'ah back up there.. ;)
  14. New: Just added an RSS feed for this site's latest topics: http://www.surfcaster.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=global&section=rss&type=forums&id=1 Now people can subscribe
  15. Surf Rat - by default, media files can not be directly embedded into posts. Allowing this would open the doors to all sorts of bad code. You can however insert a YouTube video by clicking the "Insert media" button (on post screen) and putting the URL in the box....
