New forum version

Post by gaztaylor » Mon Dec 01, 2014 10:08 pm

The forum has been updated to the latest version of phpbb and a thanks button has been added(click on the heart at the bottom of a post to give 'post love', click again to take back)

If you encounter any problems, please report them in this thread.

Big thanks to Surfer for doing the upgrade.

Great to have a thanks button at long last.

The only real gripe I have is that I prefer having the forum across the whole screen. It does look a bit squashed in at the moment.

There no longer seems to be a link to view my own posts/threads, or even a 'new since last visit' link, is that correct?



EDIT: found it under the Quick Links icon. Left this post for others who might find it useful

Here you go, you can see that it's 'boxed in' than it was before.

No difference. Still getting the same problem using IE, Chrome and Firefox.

Another bug I've found is when you click on the notification window, it takes you to the first page of the thread instead of the post that you're receiving kudos for.

All fine for me also. I think Surfer has a huge widescreen monitor, so he would have noticed if it wasnt full width for him so it sounds like the problem is at your end Mart. Ill see if I can find out anything to help.

For me it shows i got one private message but i havent got any new messages strangely, its also not full screen for me as well, but if you get firebug if you remove max width off #wrap its full screen again :-D so i guess thats what needs amending in the theme stylesheet :)

Seems ok to me so far. Just looked through at my usual places, and nothing wrong. Thanks for a smooth upgrade.

A Moto G by any chance Mart?Ok,bare with us, its been a while since we had the issues with the width, so we will look into it. The new software is so different that nothing, mods or styles, from the old version will work on it, so everything is new.

This is how it looks for me.
