Title: Citrus Growers Forum
Post by: Sylvain on February 21, 2018, 07:49:39 AM
After more than three months of work at eight hours a day and 7d / 7 (and many nights too) here is finally the backup of the Citrus Growers Forum. It is far from being completed, but I am going to continue to work above. The function "Search" will be functional only when the site will be indexed, what can take several weeks.
Many of the images hosted on images hosts disappeared as on all forums. >:(
You can indicate me the errors by specifying the address of pages.

Send the news to all your citrus growers friends!

So interesting. And looks like a lot of very useful info there. I wonder what ever happened with this: http://citrusgrowersstatic.chez.com/web/viewtopic0469.php (http://citrusgrowersstatic.chez.com/web/viewtopic0469.php)

I repaired the link in that page (viewtopic0469.php). You car read the whole story.
The Prague chimera is probably the greatest discovery we made for the north countries growers!

What happened since that time is on this forum: http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=23499.0 (http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=23499.0)

This is such great news Sylvian. A lot of us 'old timer' citrus enthusiasts shared a lot of information and also learned a lot on the Citrus Growers Forum. I'm very happy to see that all that knowledge has not been lost forever thanks to your hard work. Thank you!!

I have read books and many journal papers on citrus, but much of what I have learned of citrus is from that website.  Thanks for making it available again.

An incredible feat!

I had nearly 1000 posts on there and now I can revisit and store that data on a Word doc.

Thanks.

Thanks Sylvain, must have been an immense work!
If it is of any use to you, I have backups of some threads that I was particularly interested in that contain more recent posts, including pictures.

Threads including...
pigmented hybrids from italy
Citrus hybrids I never heard of

and the threads of my own collection.

Awesome!

Every couple of months I was rechecking if the forum got magically active again but it never did. :(

The forumup software was horrible. The site would go down for days at a time & you rarely got a response from support. I just got really fed up with the headaches...
Title: Re: Citrus Growers Forum
Post by: luak on October 07, 2018, 12:00:23 PM
Sylvain, doing so much to help out a lot of folks and also important to see some of the members coming back . This forum  was just incredible. Laaz just didnít know how valuable he was, when he started.
A true forum like this would be incredible exciting. All of a sudden old names pop up again, these folks got me started in citrus.
Millet, you should remember the one and only "Buddinman". I talk to him last year and early this spring.Then there is Joe Real.

I changed the search engine from Qwant to Google. The indexing is much faster.
Now the site is fully usable.

Make sure you archive things again and update it because several interesting threads have been added since you first created the archive.

Also I don't know if there's any way to make sure the images all get saved. Maybe even a double back-up, because images have a way of getting lost over time. (In my experience, looking back at archives that are over 6 years old)

If you heard of some new treads, send them to me and I shall update the site.

> images have a way of getting lost over time.
No, all the pictures are hosted on the site. The ones missing were lost before I made a backup.
