Hey ladies and gents! You may notice a few new things here and there around the old BukkitDev page. We've launched the new and improved site to further integrate and match the rest of our sites. Bringing with it a multitude of improvements in speed, efficiency, and usability.
Whether you're just looking for that right plugin, or you're looking to start your own project, the process has been much improved all around.
Of course, for plugin creators, we know that this is a huge change, and our support staff is working right now to make sure that our knowledge base articles get updated as quickly as possible to provide all of the information needed to make the transition as easy as possible. At the moment, you can take a look at our "Creating Your First Project" article here.
As we adjust and get everything in the right place over the next few days, you can expect longer wait periods on file approvals. We want to make sure we don't miss anything and that the process runs as smoothly as possible.
And as always, if you have any questions or comments feel free to reach out to myself @MrFlamegoat or @CurseForge on Twitter - you can also drop us a line at cfmoderation[at]curse.com and we'll make sure we do our best to help.
Your Friendly Community Helper,
Is paste not working for you? What happens when you try and paste?
Report should be fixed.
Forums are being worked on!
Localization: Can you give me an example of a project that should have it?
Thanks for the feedback!
Well paste is working, all old pastes are gone. E.g. https://dev.bukkit.org/paste/14274
And YAML highlighting is not available (was this before?)
For the localization, personally I have not used it, but know that other plugins have, I believe I saw another report about this feature, too.
Another thing: top right corner in the dropdown of the currently logged in user: My Threads leads to an error page that the module is disabled (https://dev.bukkit.org/new-content?filter-date-range-type=4&filter-association-type=3)
Another bug: Source tab under project settings is broken (e.g. https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/silkspawners/settings/source)
I put in a ticket to import pastes, I believe this was just an oversight as almost all of our sites (we imported a lot over the last few weeks) didn't use the previous paste system.
Localization should be fixed
The "My Threads" link shouldn't be there, since the forums have a different user system we cannot link them together reliably and so that option won't work. I put in a ticket to hide that option.
Source tab being broken seems like an issue with the repo host, I've poked the dev that worked on that to see if he can quick fix it.
Thanks for all the feedback!
I've noticed another issue, some links are not working in the new E-Mails ("What's been happening at Bukkit"). Some links look like this:
[\"https://dev.bukkit.org/news/838-bukkitdev-gets-an-upgrade?comment=102\"] (resulting in not being clickable on my iPhone or rendered like this on Outlook.com).
Seems to affect all "Re:" links.
I miss old way. this broke way AMP pro work. :( I don't think they ever going to fix it now.
An update to AMP was released to resolve some of the issues caused by BukGet being shut down. ;)
Best Merry Christmas Ever! :)
There's a ton of spam in project comments lately, and I can't report any of it. The report dialogue requires a reason, but there are no options available for the reason field.
Having the same issue. :(
Please try now, it should be working. We have a learning spam filter on the new site so after marking a few as spam it should start grabbing the rest itself!
@ZeldoKavira Works perfectly now, as far as I can tell.
Can you change back to the old website?
Because it slows down my connection
And I prefer the old website style
I do not like the new site...
I have a slight suspicion that's not going to happen!
It's not just a style. It's an entirely new platform. There won't be a return to the old platform.
The site should cache after some browsing and not be causing an issue with your connection.
Bug report: If you make the browser thin, such as when sharing the screen between 2 windows, the download button on the plugin page disappears.
You are turning it into mobile mode, you have to download from the file screen.
I was excited about this update. But It's just a sad mess. It's like Facebook making an update and keeping only your 'About' page with broken links, "don't worry, we still have the data we are working on moving it to the new system".
They should never have updated the website before testing it and without porting everything at once (or be ready to port in a couple of days). At least they should have kept a read-only version on another domain or something.
Link redirects are still NOT OK (direct links to documentation pages are broken). I'm not a SEO expert, but probably many Bukkit pages lost rank on Google. Messages are missing. Forums are missing. Even the signatures don't work. The list goes on...
I'm sorry to say, but at this point, I prefer the old website.
I can't even begin to describe how infuriating it is to Google something for Skript, click it, get redirected to the main Skript page on this site, then realize, oh yeah, they completely got rid of the subforums... I'd say 90% of all Skript related searches on Google lead you here, and now they are all dead links.
