Conversion

Postby Juanm » Sunday August 3rd, 2008 09h06:01

Hi,
the site was upgraded from 2.0.x to latest 3.0.2

Some data (inserted by MODs) weren't converted at all, but the original database has been dumped and contain them all. Some of them have been moved by hand.
Some people with UTC+2 have been switched to UTC+1 DST, other people will not.

Please check if:
  1. you can enter your account (or your reason is set and your rank is correct :P )
  2. all things are where they should be placed.
  3. your default style is correct (you can change it from the new spanking UCP)

Other modifications:
  • PM maximum folder size has been reduced from 80 to 50 PMs for regular users.
  • We have a bugtracker where all bugs should go for further review
  • The gallery has been converted but moved into a subdirectory
  • There are five styles:
    • prosilver,
    • subsilver2
    • glass2 beta. This latest style was discontinued loong time ago and has a nasty bug with the first forum/topic of each category/forum
    • SF Glacier (default)
    • custom style (dev quality)
  • Some old styles disappeared from this board:
    • Kail styles (Cobalt 2.0 and Solaris) as per this news (and I don't have time to port them from 2.0.x to phpBB3)
    • whatisreal style (it wasn't ported from 2.0.x in time for conversion)
  • custom pages were dropped and their content replaced using another system

Last but not least ... the old look :P

Teh old site look
Cheers!
