Site Upgrade (Completed 2/8/17)

Post by Franchise » Sun Jan 29, 2017 12:53 am

I would usually just post an announcement via the extension that appears at the top of the board with no replies allowed but figured this needed a wider broadcast. Having said that, on February 7th, which is a month after the latest phpbb release was made available, I will be upgrading the forum release around 11pm. This is almost two and a half years since 3.1 was released and will encompass several security features, a new PHP version, as well as a slew of other options. Fair warning as I have mentioned but the subsilver2 legacy style support will cease after I install the upgrade. Someone may release a comparable style in the future but for now, you'll have to make due with either the default or whatever else I install. A lot of our other styles have already been made compatible for 3.2 so there will be many to choose from.

Any questions or issues after the release is installed, please post them here.

How long will the forum be down for the update? Are we talking hours or days? I see that's Tuesday, so it shouldn't effect any game deadlines.

Shouldn't be too long. I'm gonna do it late night so like around 11pm. It'll probably take me longer to do a full backup of the site and database than to actually upgrade it. I'm guessing an hour or so at the most.

The site has been upgraded. I kept having issues doing the Auto Update which I stubbornly tried to get around rather than do a full upgrade. I literally spent over an hour doing that because as I said I can be stubborn at times because the no frills way honestly should work. Alas it did not. Anyhow, I have confirmed the site is up to date to the latest GA version which is 3.2.

As for changes, well, I haven't really had any time to play around and test the new functionality. I noticed the icons seems to be sort of different but that was one of the big upgrade features. To see the features in-depth, click HERE and HERE.

As I see new features, I will be sure to point them out here.

Regarding styles: one of my main troubleshooting steps was to deactivate all styles prior to the upgrade. So only prosilver is available at the moment. I will see what else there is that is out there and see if I can get our old choices back but for now, please make due with prosilver and also check out this page --- STYLES DB. Let me know here which of the 3.2 styles you find appealing. The ProSilver Special will probably be the first one I install.

Just installed a Green style, ProSilver Special, and something called Absolution. I don't know what these look like or how they interact but the PS Special is the same as was last release.

I don't like it all that much but so far the subsilver2_legacy has avatars on the left.

What did you use before? There's an extension that lets you use left profiles with any style and I hope to have it installed as soon as it's available. So then you can use whichever one you want and have the same look.


Also, it seems the quoting functionality is different. It's quoting exact posts now and not only that but it has links to the users profile and the original post. That's nice and all but I have to look into the mentions system too using the @ sign.

I'll see if I can fix that. It looked to be a pain but it may not be. I liked that one. Spent a lot of time creating it too.

The we_universal one looks nice too but now I'm used to the drop menu while the top navigation on we_universal looks like it has less options

I can probably get used t0 subsilver2_legacy easily, it feels like the style you were saying was getting phased out. So that's good news for those guys.

The subsilver2 ones are the ones getting phased out tho. The prosilverSW is a custom one I did.

It has to have a 3.2 release on it tho. Not sure that we_universal one is tho. I'm hoping there are more available soon.

Ah ok, I assumed when it was in the list after the update it was new. Bunch of little things I like about prosilverSW over subsilver2. The extension that would shift avs to the left could open up a lot more options tho.

Mine is completely wack on the laptop. I've got the shortcut boxes for topic tools and quick mod tools up. As well as the jump to tool box. Also, not sure what's up with the main forum page. I can't read anything.

What's your style?

Also, try clear your browser cache and also the delete all board cookies from the drop down all the way on the bottom right of the screen.

I've cleared all the cache multiple times so those shouldn't be an issue. Try logging out and back in.
