Forum upgrade

Hi All,

The forum has been upgrade to phpbb 3.2 - this is a major new release with lots of new features. Please let me know if you spot any layout problems, I think I've worked through most of them.

Cheers,

With the exception of current, zebras like it, discus don't. Feeding tetra discus granules is a good staple.

Re: User Location

If the guys who make our forum software (phpBB) change it, then it will sure happen here. It's not really something I can customise. But it's designed to show less on smaller (physical) screens. It would be good even though less than 5% of our posts are from mobiles, over 40% of site usage is from m...

Re: User Location

I'm looking at the website from a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge... screen resolution 2,560 x 1,440. I've tried "request desktop site". Does the same thing. The resolution of 1440x2560 is kind of secondary to the pixel density, which is rather high. So, because of the small screen size (physical not resolu...

Re: Forum upgrade

Today we are upgrading the forum from V3.1.6 to 3.1.8 - mostly security patches to help with the recent increase in SPAM registration attempts.

Re: Forum upgrade

4th, and I hope/think, final update. The forum styles have been amended and we're done. Additionally, I've fixed a donation link problem on the front page (rest of the site was working), standardised the main top menu options across the site, tidied up all the articles and implemented new anti-spam ...

Re: Forum upgrade

Update 3. All existing navigation functionality is restored. The style ("look and feel") is still a fair bit off where it was / I want it but not much more to do now.

Cheers,

Re: Forum upgrade

Update 2. I've fixed up the front page so that it shows the latests topics. Now the fun begins as I develop a "new" style to essentially make the new pages (have you tried looking at them on a phone or tablet?) consistent with the zebrapleco look/feel.

Re: Forum upgrade

An update.

The database has been upgraded and the forum is up and running. I still need to hook up the front page to show latest posts and also I need to implement a layout and style consistent with the rest of ZP. Most of the work is done, it's just the fiddly stuff that remains...
