no they are deactivated
FB was having problems with people complaining about 6.6/6.7 privte releases and got fed up.

i will say 1 thing though, he has laid down more code since then (prolly cause he has more free time) -which means a better nuke 7.0 for us when it comes out Very Happy

Coool! I am looking forward to 7.0- I was just going through the forums here and I see the lots of problems that were covered before...thought it would be a good resource.

it would be cool to have it all indexed and then used as a searchable...na ja

thanks nathan

The loss of the nuke.org forums was the main reason I decided not to join "the club". I had hoped that the forums had simply been moved to the pay area, but when I discovered they had just 'vanished' I was stunned.<br><br>While I have no problem with a competent product deciding to go commercial, the fact that such a valuable resource (and the only thing that passed as a "user manual") was removed because the main programmer got "fed up" led me to believe that future support for the product was mercurial at best. To ask for money with one hand while burning your support documents with the other seemed to be a bizarre business decision.<br><br>It's a shame, because after sampling dozens of CMS scripts it was clear that Nuke was the one to go with, but not if the resources I count on for information to manipulate the code are being erased. While the Nuke code may be getting more stable, it seems that the Nuke coder is getting less so.<br><br>Hopefully the forums here will eventually replace the loss on nuke.org and I may one day upgrade from 6.5.

That is our stated intent. We are a development partner with phpnuke.org now and we are to be the maintainer of the forums, amongst other responsibilities. Yes, some valuable content was lost, but, as DGT pointed out, that is mostly old news now or soon will be.

I agree. In mho, the information posted at phpnuke.org forum is old news because I currently use v6.8 and I receive all the support I need here at nukecops forum.

I sure that with the lack of a forum on the official site that this forum is quickly building back into a good resource, but unfortunatley it was the "out of date" information I needed at the time. I literally had credit card in hand when I realized that the documentation I relied on was gone. My point is that I don't get what the Nuke business model is if the developer is willing to delete a crucial resource just to spite a handful of users.<br><br>That said, it seems that Nuke Cops is filling the void quite nicely. It's unfortunate that there couldn't have been a smoother transition at the time.

I did make a cursory search for a specific problem I encountered but didn't find an answer. Not surprising as I had to really dig for an answer on the Nuke forum. That is what I found most frustrating about the deleted .org forums: that I finally found a fix that vanshed before I could use it.<br><br>Since the major projects that required nuke are now running under a custom CMS, doing an in-depth search in this forum now would be purely recreational (I have no doubt that it is probably in there somewhere). I use 6.5 for some minor hobby sites and their problems have been easily solved with 3rd party solutions (thank you Autotheme) and add-ons (thank you Coppermine).<br><br>The silver lining to all this was that struggling through without the forums for several months allowed me to learn enough to hack chunks of Nuke and other CMS's into a custom jobbie that does exactly what I need without all the 'fat'.<br><br>From what I have seen poking around, there seems to be at least as much information here as the old .org forums, and it is good to know that this resource is here for when I want to crawl under the hood of my remaining Nuke sites.

Actually I did have cause to ask a question in the forums about moving comment blocks around, something I was surprised not to have found an answer already there. So far, no response. This is the kind of thing that I am sure has been an issue since the earlier versions and so an older forum such as the one that was "Nuked" (pardon the pun) would have.

Well, after our last conversation I spoke to ZX, the owwer of NC and suggested we host the old forums for read only access, and he negotiated with FB and we now have all the old phpnuke forums right here at NC, so hunt away!
