Forum upgrades

Post by Bore » Feb 24th, '17, 18:11

After what has seemed like an eternity, the forum got a facelift. The style is still not properly changed to what it was, but maybe we'll just endure with this basic one for a while. Report any issues you might encounter!

For some people the following point might be important: Password conversion Due to the utf-8 based handling of passwords in phpBB3, it is not always possible to transfer all passwords. For passwords "lost in translation" the easiest workaround is to use the I forgot my password link on the login page.

Also with the new and improved bot-prevention (attempt) tool. When the forum asks for you to login as a pop up, just type in guest / guest. Instead of your usual usernames.

Search is apparently working properly again. As for the messages, they might've gotten stuck in the limbo while the forum was converting from the old version to the newer one. There was a timeframe that got sucked into the void sadly. Apologies for the inconvenience!

There will be other board styles or colors to choose from?
This light theme/white background is really heavy on the eyes :'(

Yeah, I am planning on making options. Currently it just was a long haul doing the conversion process in the first place!

And as a sad notice, for whatever reason the forum isn't apparently sending the emails for any reasons like it should be. This is being looked into, trying to get it fixed ASAP! Resetting passwords becomes a tad challenging if you never get the emails for them :(


I'll see if I can get this thing fixed tomorrow. Getting too late for me to get it running in the middle of the night sadly. So if you can't login currently and the forum isn't sending emails, hold your eurohorses! Eurohero to the rescue.

Seems BB code for this topic doesn't permit users other than the OP to post forum code ~ (・о・)??

Also 1st thing I did was turn-off the fuckin' word censor filter haha ~ :D ♪

Don't forget to implement Flash code & YouTube embedding into the overall board for things like ParaPara videos etc ...

Otherwise I was quite fond of the old Silver Style look of the forum ~ so I'm excited about the future skins. (^ω^)/☆

Good job Bore my friend! Hang in there ~ we'll all get the hang of the site ... eventually haha~ :D

Definitely looks more youthful. Was that the goal? I don't see the smiles or BBCodes. They both say off.

Darker shades of the forum layout are available to be chosen now. Working on them other additions to youtubes and such!
