phpbb 3.2 upgrade!

Post by hellboy » Tue Jun 12, 2018 6:47 am

After a few hiccups with the upgrade scripts, I've upgraded the forum to the latest and greatest version of php. There seem to be a bunch of changes, and no doubt some features are missing. I'm not going to actively try and re-add the features from the old forum (partially because I can't remember what ones I installed).

My suggestion is that if there's something the updated site doesn't do, and you want it to, let me know below and I'll look into enabling it!

Feedback is always welcome!

The new mobile site is cool. I wish it had the unread posts list though.

I've added a couple of extensions this evening.

The first one to give us a slightly fancier post editor - click that Full Editor & Preview button

Second one is a media embed code. It's the icon that looks like a film strip in the editor, or you can wrap in media tags like below:

Code: Select all

[media]some-url-to-a-media-site-like-youtube[/media]
I haven't really tested it it yet, so give it a go!

The ads are kind of intrusive, at least on mobile.

Also I don't think I'm supposed to be seeing ads.

I see no ads, but that notification symbol is obnoxious.

Thanks for the feedback - I'll dial back the ads.

What notification symbol do you refer to tyson?

You mean the actual symbol, or that you get a notification at all? What's so obnoxious about the little bell?

Ugh, terrible

Edit: Edit notifications options fixed that issue!

Right. Well that might change if and when I get around to updating the board style.

I've made some further tweaks to the ad settings. I won't be removing them entirely (though if you are Gold, Silver, Bronze or VIP member you shouldn't see them). Very open to feedback as to what is too many ads (apart from the obvious answer of none).

Google Adsense revenue more or less covers the costs of hosting Fourtheye, so please consider supporting this initiative as best you can.

Advance notice: the forum is going to get an upgrade to phpbb 3.2.5 sometime in the next 24 hours. The site will likely be down during this time.
