phpbb 3.1.5 Update

Post by Xenesis » Mon Jun 29, 2015 4:20 pm

Hi Everyone,

Forum software has been updated to the gee-whiz flashy new version of phpbb.

Old themes will no longer work, but there's the default bright style + a dark style (you'll have to set it in the User CP).

Post counts are now visible in people's profiles, but I've kept them out of the other places mainly to just reduce clutter.

Your timezone/DST settings may have been reset. You'll need to fix that. There's also 'relative times' options now so you can see something was 'posted 5 hours ago' and whatnot.

Anything else up, gives a yell.

6026 is not to shabby for 8 years.

Anyway, even on mobile I'm seeing a lot of new functions, looks pretty cool.

Any chance you the phpbb logo to lead to the forum index(like it used to) instead of the main page? If you want to increase traffic to the main site, I'm okay with it, but I keep clicking on it a lot :p

Are the buttons in the dark skin supposed to be blank and/or invisible? Or is that just the fact that I only have IE at work?

okay so there's like a ton of problems for me. BBCode and smilies are now off. Not sure if that is a forumwide thing or if a setting just got screwed up in the change. If it is the latter, halp. Also there's this:

You can just, you know, unset it when posting. It probably saves your settings for every post you make after that. If not, check your User CP.

Anyways, does anyone know of a fix to the page size problem, or am I stuck with it?

Hitting the phpbb logo leads to the main page rather than the forums. :/ pet peeve but still

There's a mod for it on the phpbb database, I'll install that when I get a chance.

I checked in the ACP and for some reason, you can't actually use BBCode etc. on this particular subforum unless you're an admin. So, uh, I fixed it.

Yeah. The option is to either have the site in the breadcrumbs and on the logo or just have the forums with no top level link. I might have to root around in the code for that one too because it's irking me too.

Oh hello, I am MysteriousLad.
Do you know when I was an OP player? When I wasn't in WWN and massclaims were legit good? Yea I miss the days I could force town to claim, rout out the mafia, and win the game for free day 3. Sometimes without being killed!
Senpai HPD notices me everyday when I'm town, do no scum play, and still get lynched day 1.
Anyway, it's time to go and ask people to claim and go lynch those who don't with my high-skill OP role.
