Forum Upgrade to 2.0
« on: June 12, 2011, 01:34:59 AM »
Yep, as you might well have noticed, i have upgraded the forum software...

This was more for security upgrades that there offered (as well as maybe the WYSIWYG editor as well ;) )

Ok, now that is done, you might see a couple of missing things

1) There is *no* shoutbox anymore... looking into fixing that.

2) The old TR theme is no more (again, looking to fix that one, but it was modded, and doesnt like the changes..)

There are bound to be some other changes that i havent noticed yet...

If you spot them, PLEASE POST HERE!

Oh, and on another note.... Welcome back :D

1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.
6) BLOG ME!

oh, as a quick reply to this post... my funky "reason for edit" mod is fubared.... don't know where it went wrong though installing/upgrading...

Will be working on trying to get the old TR theme back up and running, but as to *when* that will be, who knows..... but i am working on it (what *is* annoying is that it works in a strange fashion, but the admin panel is fecked beyond belief :( )

Good work. I, for one, like a bright skin more, then an age-old TR one. You should probably make available a selection of skins to choose from.
Also, what is shout box?

The shoutbox was the little chat entry box that was on the old main page.

I will be working on a theme sometime over the next couple of months, as and when I have the time. Not sure as to *when* it will land, but I will try to mix and match elements of the old TR theme with a brighter version.

Oh and as this version of the forums have *just* been released, still waiting for more base templates to appear.

Also you might want to move all old stuff to the separate archive section. Do we still need all those sections of forum related to a dead game (even if the one that was great) on the main page?
