Offbeat Bride Tribe: offline for maintenance until 1/1/2014

By on Dec. 28th

tribe-constructionWe're upgrading the Offbeat Bride Tribe's back-end (YEAH WE SAID IT), so the Tribe corner of Offbeat Bride will be offline from Sunday December 29 – Wednesday January 1. The main Offbeat Bride blog is online (obviously!), so there's plenty of reading to do.

The forum will likely look a bit different when it back online… the design will be the same, but the Tribe's admin pages will be styled a bit differently, and some of our templates may have shifted. Nothing drastic (we hope?) but the Tribe is held together by a huge amount of duct tape, and any time we upgrade… there's always some duct tape that falls off.

(Again, this is just the Offbeat Bride Tribe we're talking about, the private community over at Nothing is changing with the Offbeat Bride blog here at I know there's sometimes confusion between what's what, but we're JUST talking about the stuff under our header's "TRIBE" tab.)

Thanks in advance for your patience with us during the maintenance! We're doing our best to keep the Tribe awesome. If you have any questions (or just need a Tribe support thread while we're offline) feel free to post a comment below…

Update December 30, 3pm PST

Things are looking really great. We've got the core tools updated (WordPress, BuddyPress, bbPress, s2Member), and are now working on fixing little bugs. We're totally on-schedule for throwing the doors wide open on the 1st… and not even that much duct tape has fallen off! Whew.

Update December 21, 4pm PST

And we're back! A few hours early, even. :)
