phpBB forum upgrade

In this forum you can write about anything that does not fit in other forums.
This includes generic Oric talkings and things that are totaly unrelated but want to share with people here :)

phpBB forum upgrade

Post by Dbug »

Just to give you some heads-up, I will try to do an upgrade of the forum tomorrow, so if you are not able to connect, you will know why.

Since I will not be able to give updates on the forum if things go bad, I will post the updates on my Twitter account instead.

Going to take my breakfast, and then I'll start the upgrade procedure.

Until you see a post saying that it is safe to post, please don't, because if something does not work I will have to rollback from a backup so whatever you posted will be gone.

Should be safe to use the forum again.

I'm currently looking at the best mod to do the "export full thread" request, if any of you can think of some extension that would be interesting to have (interesting as "would benefit most people", not custom stuff for one person please), feel free to tell.

Also please signal anything weird you encounter.

The extensions to generate full thread prints has been installed, and I installed a better database backup system as well.
Hopefully everything is working fine :)

Thanks!
Made a very quick test with the "print all", seems to work fine ;)

Cool, I wonder how bad that would result on things like the epic 40 page long threads :shock: :?:

Cool, so with all the images, color, font size, code comments, etc...
Nice :)

Another good motivation to keep threads clean and in order.

I haven't noticed any change, that being said I'm surfing on an old computer.
