Upgrading the site to phpbb 3.2.8

Post by Joan » 2 months ago

You won't notice any changes, but it fixes some security holes and bugs that don't affect us.

(the reason for doing this is to make sure the security holes aren't exploited)

Done. As usual, report any bugs.

Oh, is that a bug report? In what way is weird? A screen shot might help.

If it's all blue instead of orange and grey, you've changed styles (that might happen) and I can help you get back to original Metro like orange.

Well, thank you (I think).

Does it look different to people after the upgrade? It looks just the same to me.

Why "I think"?

Definitely different for me. Can't remember how it's different now as it's been a few days, but I still know it's different.

It defaulted to a radically different looking style for me, and I couldn't remember what I'd selected previously or find it quickly, but I've chosen another one that I'm perfectly happy with. Everything else seems the same.

When you upgrade, they tell you to change the style to the default (bizarrely named prosilver not phpDefault or something). I changed it back a short time afterwards, but I think some of you may be seeing the blue default.

If that's the case, and you want to change back....

Go to User Control Panel -> Board Preferences and change My Board Style to Metrolike Orange

It is grey and orange, wasn't this colour before.

Ah! I had hoped new users would get the default style. This software is still a mystery to me.

But if you want to return it to it's previous appearance, go here and try different styles to you find the one you like. Start with Prosilver.
