Upgrade to phpBB3

Post by André » Mon Jul 30, 2007 4:48 pm

Sorry for the delayed announcement but we will be upgrading to phpBB3 tonight starting at 12:00 AM Eastern Standard Time. The process should not take more than 2 hours so expect the board to be back up around 2:00 AM - 3:00 AM Eastern Standard Time.

Yea, well, I know what I'll be doing. Losing sleep. Oh well, I have work at 5PM tomorrow so I think I can sleep in a little.

Good job Doc, looks great.

Only thing I've noticed is that searches are a bit more restrictive, which could be problematic. For example, I just did a search for "Search Site" and received the response:

The following words in your search query were ignored: search site.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.

Well, I'm having problems with Avant's "Search Site" feature, so this would be a legit search for me...

Thanks for your hard work, it is very much appreciated.

If the board seems sluggish to you, don't fret, we know about it and are working to correct it. Sorry about that.

On the old format I used to automatically get new posts SINCE LAST VISIT. I'm not getting the same thing now; is this (very useful) option still possible? I haven't changed anything. tia

Or, instead of coming here and licking Doc's link every time you visit, you can click the View new posts link in the upper right corner of the screen, below the current time. ;)

New style is up. If you notice any problems with it, please post it to the forum errors forum. Please don't forget to thank statm1 for all his hard work.

If you don't prefer the new style, you can always switch to the more familiar subSilver or the new default phpBB3 style, proSilver in your User Control Panel

In the viewforum page, there's no space between the new post indicator next and the thread title. If I get a chance later, I can try to take a look at it, too.

That's what I'm using but it gives all new posts back to Mon Jul 30, 2007 8:33 and not all new posts since I last visited.
I noticed because normally I only have a few posts displayed but now I get 2 pages of posts, even if I shut the browser and open it again after 2 minutes.
I'm pretty sure something's working differently, I can't understand why nobody else has noticed it.
BTW quote doesn't seem to work!
