Forum Updates

Postby USAFA82 » Thu Feb 26, 2015 8:14 pm

2/26/2015: I updated the board to the latest phpBB version, 3.1.3. Unfortunately, since it's a major upgrade to our old version, the old board styles and some modifications I made are no longer usable. I'll search for some new Styles, but for now we'll have to use the default, prosilver.

The other thing I'm concerned about is that I had some anti-spam mods in place with the old version. I'm hoping we have enough anti-spam measures still working until I can research this issue.

Lastly, I'll be moving this board to a new host soon. I'm hoping to be able to do it this weekend (Feb 28/Mar 1).

Let me know if you notice something not working on the board. Thanks.

The transfer to the new host completed successfully. I'll also be transferring the domain name to a new registrar. I've initiated the process, which generally takes about seven days or so.

I've found a new style I like and uploaded it.

To change your style, if you're in the standard prosilver style, click on your name in the upper-right portion of the screen and select User Control Panel:

Choose the Board preferences tab

Next to "My board style:" select one of the new styles.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks for the updates and walk through. Both layouts seem mobile friendly, although I'm not sure if Aero makes it as noticeable when there's a new post. I guess we'll have to get a little more chatty around here and I'll find out. :)

I really liked the old mobile style. I'll check to see if it has a compatible update.

Well, it looks like the prosilver for phpbb 3.1 is designed to also render on a mobile device. The new Aero style I uploaded also seems to work pretty well on my smartphone. The person who did the previous mobile style has "coming soon" in his 3.1 section. I don't think we'll need it, though.

I'm not surprised about prosilver. When I first logged in after you did the upgrade, it looked slightly different, but not radically changed or horribly broken. Aero also works well on my few year old phone. I have noticed that prosilver makes it easier to detect new thread activity on my phone, while Aero makes PM notifications stand out more on my phone.

But, both work nicely and I appreciate all the work you do to keep our home online, secure, and up to date.

The domain transfer to the new registrar is supposed to take place 3/6/15 at "02:48:51"

They don't specify if that is GMT or something else, but it's already past that in GMT, so your guess is as good as mine :)

I've made the "Aero" style the default style of the board. There are several sub styles you can choose from: black, green, pink, purple and red.
