phpBB Update

Unread postby Shrink908 » Sun Sep 25, 2016 12:29 pm

Well, we've fallen way behind.. we're on 3.0.something and phpBB is on 3.1.something... So I'm going to start taking steps to upgrade our software and see if it's possible to do so without having a mess... Will keep you updated.

The damned thing (MySQL) glitched and I restored from 4 hours ago.. So about 4 hours of data is gone.. That's all.

Ok.. Anyone who wants to help with style colors for the 3.1 upgrade go to Colorize a phpBB 3.1 theme and work on a style.. I'll look at the ideas and see if they function.. If they do I'll make them available for people to use.. In the "rename phpBB style" field I'd put something in there to identify who designed it.. Like "KP Green - Shrink908" or something.. That way we can keep track of who did what.

I do have a copy of 3.1.9 working over at http://www.kpslashhaven.net/31 again.. Try it out.. The posts will >not< be up to date with this one as the databases are very different.. I'm still fussing with it some.. Also, see the above reply about styles..

The 3.1.9 is available at http://www.kpslashhaven.net/31 if you'd like to try it.. It works rather better than this 3.0.14 (less bugs from what I've seen so far) but nobody is trying it. Should I just update the main site then?

Since posts will be lost in the test environment there isn't really much to do there apart from kicking the proverbial tires which is only entertaining so long, or not at all. So if you're reasonably confident that it won't cause the end of all existence I'd say just do the update. We won't discover all the issues in the test anyways.

And again.. If you go to Colorize a phpBB 3.1 theme and design a color theme we'll install it so people can try it.. In the "rename phpBB style" field I'd put something in there to identify who designed it.. Like "KP Green - Shrink908" or something.. That way we can keep track of who did what.

I was just quoting the 2nd Doctor. I do that when something changes. Cause it amuses me. Plus I had no idea how to do that.

Oh, will the Kigo banners be returning?

help!

I've gotten so used to the "view unread posts" button that I don't know to navigate the site anymore....

also, is the old theme incompatible or did I just default to some weird one when we switched phpbb versions

EDIT: nevermind, I found the button
