Updated forums to latest phpBB release

Postby Tuan » Wed Oct 28, 2015 12:50 am

The forums is under going an update. Our forum was using a very outdated phpBB version that is no longer supported. Many new features are also unavailable without an update.

Please bear with us as we upgrade.

Known Bugs:
- The board style is missing (Please bear with this terrible style until I get it fixed!)

maybe it's about time for a new look ^^

FYI I changed some security settings for new members as we had a couple of newly registered spam bots, which I also deleted.

Yuki, did you modify xand to create the xand_blue_pink? Do you have any idea what the style is based on (prosilver or subsilver)?

I'm trying to move the style over to 3.1

Yes, I did :o I think it's based on subsilver2, see also here: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/xand
Not sure tho if it's still compatible.

It's not compatible, I really like that style, but subsilver is missing many features that are available in prosilver so it's better if we use prosilver as a base.

Thanks Cho, I think you should be able to send private messages now. Some of the settings got changed during the update so there's going to be some settings that are messed up until we find them all. If you see anymore please post it here! :D

Ah yes I can send pMs again, thanks! :)
Can somebody explain to me though how I can delete pms? :/ somehow we are allowed to have less pms now than before and now my inbox has 150% of 100% filled which means too many pms and i would like to delete the ones i don't need anymore, but i dunno how? ><'

You can check the boxes for the PMs you want to delete, then click on the "mark/unmark as important" button on the bottom of the screen, select "delete marked", click on yes and gone they are ^^

I actually encountered the same problem today. I used a quick solution by creating a new folder and shifting a few PMs there, but that should only be temporary.

Ah sorry I should've been more clear, I meant click the arrow next to the mark/unmark button, then you should see the delete marked button ^^

@Cho & Meike: The permissions for deleting private messages were off for some reason. I just turned them again on... Another thing that got messed up during the update lol. I can also increase the private messages limit to whatever it was before again. Anyone remember what it was at?
