Website and forums upgrades [April 2020]

The website has gone through several upgrades throughout 2016 and currently we are pretty satisfied with the speed.
The website is also HTTP/2 enabled.

Thanks to Peter, now loads faster than most websites on the internet (based on online website tests). 17ms loadtime, 2.3s average due to WordPress (And this is loading the website from FireFox in Canada, when the server is located in Europe).

The website has gained a 99/100 User Experience from Google PageSpeed Insights (The missing 1% is due to WordPress).
The forums however, has a 100/100 User Experience rating.
GTmetrix gives the website a PageSpeed Score of A (97%) and a YSlow Score of A(96%).

The forums has also gone through many upgrades and it feels as stable as can be.

The forums are SSL secured meaning your data is also secured and encrypted.

Please remember, do not use your KCNR password at other servers to prevent stealing.
On a side note:

20 topics are now loaded per page in any forum instead of 25.
There are a wide variety of themes to choose from.

[youtube] [/youtube] BBCode now works properly again (Works for URL shortner and HTTPS).

Also added an automatic media embedder. Posting certain links should now automatically embed.

Example: (It should work for youtube too! A complete list can be found here)

All I did was post the link as normal and it automatically embeds the media!

The forums has went through another big upgrade (internal).

Emojis are now supported.
The old themes no longer work properly, so Peter has found us a new lovely theme (ComBoot.. it's also made using bootstrap and is super fast and sleek! This is 2016!).
Things such as media embedding might be a bit shaky.. but it works with imgur and some other sites so far.

Thank you!

2019 April UPDATE:
  • Web server has had a nice upgrade.
  • New default forum theme. Back to a light team, like when LVCNR originally started!
  • Updated all extensions (plugins).
  • Fixed topic icons. Added a bunch more.
  • When selecting the 'Attachments' tab, you can now simply copy (CTRL+C) images instead of dragging or dropping or attaching the file manually.
  • You may now link your steam account to the KCNR forums (Account must have more than $5 worth of purchases, see ... -IAGK-7663) for more info.
  • You can now vote for a best answer in a topic.
  • Unlimited PM inbox storage is now enabled, because we have the space for it now.

- Web services & forums upgrade (Speed improvements can be seen as minimal of ~3x).
- Some extensions may have been removed due to incompatibility.
