PhpBB 3.1

Post by Tim Blokdijk » 08 Mar 2015, 09:38

Hello css wizards and others,

In https://github.com/Tim-Blokdijk/spring-website I managed to code up some changes to upgrade this PhpBB board to version 3.1
This has been uploaded and configured @ http://test.springrts.com/phpbb/
Would love it if you good people can take a look at it and tell me if it's broken somewhere?
I only tested it with Firefox on Ubuntu. Tapatalk is installed and enabled, never used or tested it..

I love the new reply-all, it's in a much more sensible location.
Also GUI in general seems a lot better, moderator stuff in particular.
No user avatars present though.
Btw, which version of phpBB are we on right now?

Code: Select all

border-radius: 8px;
under #wrap from common.css

Done, I overwrote it in the Spring theme.

I can upload an avatar and it will show up, I guess something needs to be done (file permissions, another directory, ..) to make the existing avatars show up.

[edit]
Ok, the avatars are just missing from test.springrts.com and need to be copied from the production board.

I changed the font to match the font phpbb uses, it's a bit bigger. I don't know if that's what's "broken"?
jK wrote:seems someone didn't had read:
https://github.com/spring/spring-websit ... pdatephpbb
It's worse, I read it and then discarded the information.. the update readme did not give me enough context what changes were needed and if those would still needed to be applied to 3.1
Now that I have (more or less) figured it out I will study that patch.
Is see custom smilies, captcha and maybe something about a utf_normalizer. Anything else I might miss?

Looks pretty nice. The quick links could be spread out and not just a menu, since I guess "active topics" is what most people want to click on.

Is this a high enough version of php to get code markup onto the wiki? I vaguely remember that this was the limiting factor.

Wiki and forum software are entirely separate except the logins

i.e. links are underlined and font is different as before. i didn't know that this change was by intention.

Is registration disabled intentionally because it's a test forum?
PS: Regarding our current forum, I got this when trying to register a new account:
The value of “What is the last digit of the current year?” is too large, a maximum value of 4 is allowed.
My answer was 5.

Just to be clear, typing 4 works, but I was arrogant :P

the underlined links at http://test.springrts.com/ look bad and should be removed. imo either underline or highlight links by color, but don't use both. also it would be more consistent to the rest of the page.

It can be changed. I did make some changes to the original css for links as it wasn’t working right with links in the forum, but I don't have any visual preferences, I just like to have the PhpBB 3.1 codebase as it's far more cleaner to build extensions for.

I already made a fully responsive theme for this forum a long time ago, why not use that? It's on github.

Edit: Based on artodia deluxe theme.
