I'm happy to announce that Cinder's forums will finally be moving to Discourse (and off of Zoho). After weighing a number of options, Discourse appears to be the best fit for our needs.
The current forum will be kept at its current location. Initially we'd ask that users start making new posts on Discourse, and we'll let active conversations here on Zoho wind down naturally. Ultimately we'll lock these Zoho-based forums but keep them up for archival purposes. We'll also change the link on the site prior to that of course.
Additionally, Cinder is being very generously supported by Discourse the organization, who are hosting our forums free of charge, so a huge thank you to them.
Thanks also to everyone who weighed in on this decision, and of course to everyone who's been helping building the Cinder community through these forums.
Just to let you know, discourse crashes for me which results in a blank white page (Both Firefox and Chrome on OSX). It seems to be related to the cdn, which occasionally serves a blank JS file for one or more of the requests, which leads to JS errors, such as '$' or 'Ember' or 'Discourse' not being found, depending on which file failed.
*edit* - A bit more info, it seems to be certificate related. I get a big, scary NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID error in chrome, and something similar in firefox, but the page doesn't respect the current scheme and tries to load the JS and images over https either way.
I was trying both, but https seems to work now in firefox, though it's still whinging about it being insecure. Chrome just craps out to a white page like before. Let me know if there's any more info that would help, It seems to be a fairly commonly encountered issue, going by the discourse support forums.
Nope, nothing like that. I've narrowed it down to https://cdn-standard.discourse.org/ which just ERR_CONNECTION_RESETs for me 99% of the time. My usage of https on discourse.libcinder.org with a security exception was just a red herring.
*edit* Going all brute force on the problem seems to have helped. Power cycling a router will likely bring about world peace one day.
