Upgraded forum to latest phpBB software

Upgraded forum to latest phpBB software

Postby NoyzSource » Fri Jul 24, 2009 9:39 pm

I upgraded the forum from phpBB 2.0.22 to 3.0.5. The next version 3.0.6 is rumored to have RSS and Twitter integration so when it is released I'll upgrade to it. This upgrade allows for easier future upgrades through automatic scripts provides by our webhost dixiesys.com and is easier on me.

If you see any problems just give me a holler.

Later,
Eric

Could you possibly install alternative Styles. maybe something darker...blacks, greys, dark green. Or maybe the Hello Kitty style :D

I probably won't get to that for a little while. The Blue does need some changes though.

Ooooooooooh sparkly! I like the new look, it is a bit bright though :). i think a Lamba jpg right up in the top left corner where phpBB is would be a nice touch too.

How do you get back to the home page?

As in the Main LAMBA home page or just the main page of the Forum.

The Main page of the forum has a text link on every page called "Board Index". Usually near the top of the page.

I had to do a little hacking to get the main logo in the old forum to go back to the Main http://LAMBAonline.com page. Right now the best way is just to go to the address bar and delete all the text beyond the .com. I'll change that back to the old way when I get some time.

Next 2 things to do:
Change color scheme slightly.
Add RSS feeds for you Google Reader junkies.

Awesome upgrade btw, thanx! Will take a little getting used to, but the interface seems much better...

New smiley options perhaps :?:

Fixed the logo for the most part. I had to edit the imageset.cfg file in the theme and upload the logo I wanted to the imageset folder.

For those of you that want to play around with the logo for your own purposes or even throw out a few new logo ideas here are the current logos we have.

http://www.lambaonline.com/images/LAMBALogo/images.html

It must be in SVG format for us to accept it so we can scale it properly. I did the current logo in Inkscape.

I still haven't figured out the color scheme yet.

:techie-eatcursor: Nice Upgrade! Looks great, even the logo looks good.

Not sure where I stand on adopting the Hello Kitty theme.

Perhaps Halo Kitty?

Or not...
