Conversion /2

Postby Juanm » Monday June 29th, 2015 12h24:05

The site was at last upgraded from the old phpBB Olympus 3.0.7 PL-1 to the new spanking phpBB Ascraeus 3.1.5

Some issues:
  1. the portal is not ready yet (we don't like something ...)
  2. the gallery has to be re-imported/rebuilt and all the links will be b0rked and should be redirected :twisted:
  3. the bugtracker has been removed and won't be reinstated anymore ... 6 bugs submitted in several years means it's not-so-useful
  4. the stats ... well, we don't know. At the moment there's no extension hanging in the ext dev forum @phpBB.com or at board3.de
  5. teh spammers ... well, we'll see :rock:
  6. teh style ... we are looking for something
  7. teh idiotic cookie law ... well, without ads we don't need this zone to abide at full, but this will deserve another chapter
  8. teh tiny buttons on the bottom right ... yep, this board has some social tools at last

Advantages: Ascraeus will be even more easier to update than the old Olympus with AutoMod
But all the old MODifications are lost forever. The data have been dumped anyway :hot:

All sites feeds are now fixed, with the notable exception of /gallery/ related one
phpBB gallery unfortunately comes with no feeds at least in this initial stage of development. We'll try to figure out some workaround to such missing feature :|, of course after repopulating it with all the old images
