Upgraded to phpBB 3

Post by vampirefrog »

We've upgraded the forum from phpBB2 to phpBB3.

Still a few improvements to make, like fixing the way packs are displayed (the [table] code), and adding the chat box back in.

After that, we'll install a wiki as well.

Watch this topic for updates. Also, please mention if you'd like to work on the wiki. There is a lot of info that needs to be moved from the forum into the wiki format. I'm curious who will volunteer.

Please note that I disabled the user registration until we get the captcha working again.

I don't see a theme change option in usercp, is there no alternative theme (particularly, the one I suggested previously) installed yet?

This is a different install than the one we fiddled with a while ago. I'll make sure to install some themes too.

Well, I've finally figured out how to use the phpBB3 hooks, which is a way to add functionality without modifying the forum php files. For anyone familiar with wordpress hooks/filters, this is very similar, except there are only 4 hooks so far, which kind of defeats the purpose, but I think I managed to get around that. So anyway, this means we'll have the chatbox and the table parsing code soon, hopefully tonight.

How are you guys liking phpBB3 so far?

. . . I think this topic ALONE explains how broken the site is now.

I didn't even know there /was/ a TOPIC tag in phpBB (in version 2 at least). That's apparently the tag that only requires the TopicID number to link to one.

Now I can't even get the latest releases at all cause of how broken the actual release pages look! Fix it, pleez! x.x

EDIT: Great. Now even HTML is broken. FIX. IT. FixItFIXITFIXIIIIIIIIIITT!!!!11. X.X

There wasn't. It's one of the dozens of custom tags I added, this particular one upon ValleyBell's direct request, no less.

But yeah, North Korea is always a magical place, gotta love uniforms and uniformity and being like everyone else. Thank you for giving me yet one more reason for being happy I left this place.

VB edit: fixed quote (enable BBCodes or don't use them!)

Apparently, the [topic] tag along with [table] were custom implementations on the old forums, or perhaps mods. I'll just have to reimplement them. Shouldn't be hard. Keep calm and rip VGMs.

Ok, fixed the [topic] tag and the [table] tag, though it still needs styling. Also added chat box.

I've also found a list of installed mods on the phpBB2 install, and we'll try to restore those.

Tom, please change your user icon.

I wonder why Tom is suddenly back to our Little Pyongyang when he 's so happy in his new life.

Stockholm Syndrome mayhaps?

I felt so free and added the old forum icons.
I'll leave most of the modding to our webmaster though.

The captcha is now working (like the old one you need to enter the word backwards) and thus I enabled user registration.
Right now the accounts don't need to be confirmed by mail, because the mail system doesn't seem to work correctly.
