[Done] Forum update?

#1

Post by Dark-Assassin » Wed Sep 27, 2017 2:32 pm

The forums are using phpBB 3.1.x and the latest is 3.2.x
I'd like to update it sometime soon, but need to find a good time and day to do it.
With how this site is set up, I can't guarantee nothing will break, hence why I haven't just done it in the background already.

Maybe find the 2-3 days when neither the FNF subforums, nor the current tournament threads will be active

It'd be nice if the update included a working Search function on the forums. The current one hasn't worked for years now.

Board statics will be nice such as top 10 users post, most viewed thread, most replied thread, most active board, etc,.

During the sudden emergency maintenance that happened the other day, I managed to do the forum update too.

Such emergencies are the best. Two problems killed with one stone.

There's a little bug with the new forum for some browsers: The topic tools dropdown menu is exposed even without clicking it. (The one next to post reply button) I can confirm it happens with 1 more user.

I had the same problem. I fixed it by switching to the Zandronum forum skin, but I miss the Green/Black skin.

Yea, I need to fix those. The new update made changes to the prosilver template. If I just reinstall the style completely, it breaks the recent topics sections.

The topic author text shows up twice below the user's avatar: Once right below (in red) and once below the user's name (bold purple/pink). Might want to fix that.

Still a bunch of theme related stuff I need to fix.
But this is because of some weirdness with an extension. Disabled for now.

I've said this before in other places, that theme is really outdated and it's not my domain. I may as well just disable it until it gets updated.
