Forum Upgrade (10/30/14)

Post by Franchise » Thu Oct 30, 2014 5:58 pm

The forum was upgraded earlier today to the latest phpbb release, 3.1. There are several new features, including:

- Responsive design (looks much better on phone/tablet).
- Enhanced menus (drop downs, etc, for better navigation).
- A 'Jump to Forum' navigation in the bottom right of each page (not sure if this was here before but I just noticed it).
- Profiles have been updated to include Twitter/Google+/etc usernames.

They have also removed some things, including:
- All themes besides the default (prosilver).
- Any mods Suki had installed aren't available in 3.1. Extensions will need to be installed to replace them once the developers have released them. They may have some already available; I will look around.
- Some avatars seem to not be showing up. I believe that is because they may exceed the allowed size. I will look at that as that directory was not part of the upgrade.

I spot-checked everything before bringing the board back online this afternoon, but if anyone notices anything that doesn't quite seem to be right, please let me know. I have a list of a few like the logo, links, the avatar issue mentioned above, new themes, and the reminder if someone else has posted since you started replying to a post.

Lastly, I apologize for the down-time earlier without advanced warning. Let's just say they did not make this process easy for some reason and then to top it off, the web host kept going completely offline as well.

I know mine was one of the avatars that didn't show up, but I just re-uploaded it and it's there now. Don't know if that's what others need to do, but that was my case.

Mine was gone, but it was easily replaced. I don't actually remember which Nowinski picture I had up anyway. They're all wonderful in their own way.

That happens to me sometimes too. I think it is an issue with the database server at the host because I've gotten it randomly before yesterday too. I've optimized the database tables again last night but I will look into this some more because it shouldn't be happening.

Agreed. It does once you've drilled down to where the topics are but doesn't for the actual forum/sub-forum. I get why they did that in case it's a large forum list but they should give you the option. I'll look around if there is one.

Any reason why its telling me I have the wrong username/password when trying to submit my stablewars?


Note:
- I did check for caps lock, and its off. (My letters are all lowercase)
- I typed it slow and 100% sure its the correct password and username.

I believe it has to do with the new password hashing. Basically I asked Suki to update the php setting for the domain a few days ago because the new phpbb needed a higher version of php and it looks like if you have logged in since the upgrade, or changed your password recently, it would be rehashed using an updated method. So anyone that's password is hashed with the new method would have a password mismatch in the reg. Normally it wouldn't matter but it looks to me like some of those php functions are deprecated.

Anyhow, I am looking into how best to address this as quickly as possible.
