Re: scary update

Could we get another, optional theme? Current one is really ugly. White on black awful and the new "unread" indicator icon (blue square) sucks. Just my two cents. The main objective of this operation was to update the forum. This was to make the forum more secure and less buggy. Due to the fact tha...

Re: scary update

Update was to the latest. I did find it unfortunate that the old version of the style / template couldn't survive.

Didn't find many styles / templates that could be used for PHPBB 3.1.3. And yes ... this is a wow template. But with a few adjustments ... it won't be! ;)

Re: scary update

Yes, OMG that update scared the crap out of me. Despite having 1 ftp full back and 3 extra database backups. Due to the database password containing a "%", the database update php script refused to run. Only nasty thing atm is the style / theme we had. It has no update to the current new version. So...

scary update

One of these days i will be doing a heavy update on the forum. During that time the forum won't be available.

I expect it to take 3 hours tops. (3 hours in case of dramatic failures. :roll: )

Re: Bot

It's similar to google crawlers / bots. It's no biggy.

In the controll pannel of phpbb (, with which our forum is made, ) it can be seen & deactivated by the power of the admin. It's under: Quick access --> spiders and robots

Re: Adjustments to mainsite

Updated main site, template, editor. Unfortunately the "update" of the template placed a new fresh version template which made much of the work undone. I did restore it but it visually is a bit different now.

Also adjusted the general info and the event timer to Gunnar's Hold.

Earlier the host had some global troubles with an upgrade / maintenance of some of their servers. This resulted in probably a 6 to 8 hours down time. Their solution took waaay longer then expected. Increasing bandwith as well as capacity of the cache servers. Normally this hoster has less trouble. L...
