The new forums

Post by frank » Fri Nov 25, 2011 11:59 am

Hello everyone
So yeah, the forums were down for a few days. This is because I was updating an install from phpBB2 to phpBB3. Turns out that it was a giant pain in the arse. The amazing, wonderful Skhmmxi was an absolute saint and helped with the whole thing, everyone buy him presents and pay him compliments.
So, there'll probably be teething problems, and the look isn't quite what I want it to be right now (obviously), but I wanted to get things back up and running as soon as possible. In theory the new code will make everything more secure, faster and generally more ace. Thoughts, queries, problems, in this thread please.
Welcome back.

yup, looks very nice. As a reward, I'm graciously letting Kenny win at wordswithfriends.

It looks nice, I was thinking the forums could do with a re-vamp.

It's not just you but I'm not sure whether it's the fact I'm on my phone that is making it difficult.

So far it seems ok.

FRANK- Just a trivial thing I noticed - the 'forum' link on your splash/home page no longer works as it appears the URL must contain the www. now - the link on the blog page works fine

Same for anyone else with the old site bookmarked.

When a post is made by a friend, it's highlighted. When you add someone as a foe, their posts are collapsed and you have to click on the posts individually to see what they've written (it's an alternative option to flooding them out with cat pictures, though not necessarily as much fun).

So far it seems ok.

Best option would be to put the fonts in white I reckon
