Forum Migration

Post by Myrd »

Hello all!

As you may have noticed, the forums look different.

That's because we had to migrate to a new version of phpBB and the old styles are no longer compatible.
We can look at recreating the old theme over time, though it's not a big priority for us. If anyone wants to help out, let us know!

We're still checking if there are any other issues with the migration. The server has also undergone some other software migrations and we're aware that some other things might not be working yet. We'll try to fix them over the next few weeks.

Here's the list of known issues currently:

- News on projectmagma.net not working
- Some things in the forum style could be improved
- Forums are using the default phpBB style
- Logins to the Tain not working
- New user registration emails not being delivered

Please let us know if there are other problems you notice. Thank you for bearing with us through this!

I extracted the old styles from a backup. [attached]

The old files are for 3.0.4
The current forum is 3.3.1

Hopefully we can get this ported over.

I've re-created the tain style now and switched the board over to it.

The forum width needs to be fixed. Currently it's only using 50% instead of filling up the entire width like the previous one did.

The default theme previously was the narrow one. But I think we had a few other variants available that people could choose from. If someone is interested in re-creating a wide one, it's certainly welcome!

You can just duplicate the current one and edit the width %. That's all it was needed.

A new wide tain style has been added. You can change it under user control panel -> board preferences -> my board settings.

Hey TZ, if you know how to do styles, do you think you could get the MagmaRed style working?

I'm happy to do it, but it probably won't be till January. We are in the middle of a move right now and things are crazy right now.
