phpBB 3.0.9

Postby RBDash47 » Tue Jul 12, 2011 7:38 am

Hey all,

This morning I upgraded our forum software to the latest stable release. It looks like it went okay from my end, but let me know if you find anything broken, eh?

Avatars switched sides =(

Odd, they shouldn't have. Bet I know why, give me a bit.

I am a fan of the Mini Profiles being on the left. It seems smoother, since we naturally read from left to right. I see who made the post, then what they wrote.

Hell... An update? I HATE updates D:

Now I have to go update the forums I administrate... :(

Is it a good update though? Are we close to 4.0 yet? Because that, I'm actually looking forward to.

Oh hey, don't let me interfere. I'm not going to kick over the garbage cans if they go back to being on the right, and dump a sack of flaming poo on your doorstep.

I once got froggy and put all the mini-profiles at the "Top" of each post in my forum, and the members became undead zombies, which resulted in a mild cannibal holocaust. But nothing a slab of bacon and some gravy didn't cure.

Kinda hard to adjust since they've been on the right since forever but, yes, left-to-right is the norm for most languages. Either way, they could use being a lot less wide, right now they take up like 20% of my screen.

They were set to 22%; I've dropped them to 15% (may need to do a hard refresh to pick up the change).

Much better. Maybe they should be fixed-pixel size, since the avatars already are? Just enough to fit the join date, if that is needed at all... Oh, damn, I'm doing my thing again, aren't I?..

Drax, it did for me too - I had no idea anything had changed until Filly asked me about it. If you do a hard refresh (Shift+F5 in most browsers), you should see the change.

Whoop, there we go,... Okay, what's the big deal here? Is the avatar flip the only big thing? How strange.

Oh, the best part is, the avatar flip isn't part of this update.

Months ago when I first installed the forum software, I tried to install a mod that would put the mini profiles on the left, because that's what I was used to from my last major forum. I couldn't get it to work, figured I'd come back to it, and moved on to more important things. I ended up forgetting about it and never removed the code from the forum.

Fast-forward to today... I update us from 3.0.8 to 3.0.9 and the mod is suddenly working.

Lol, went and checked my email, came back, now I see it. Not a big deal to me.

I been meaning to ask though, I noticed some names are different colors. Obviously red is for mods, but what's orange and blue mean?

Orange is authors (people who have stories in the Archive), blue is the default for any user not assigned to a special group.

He forgot to tell you, that members with Pink usernames are those that got the lucky car-ride out into the desert in the dead of night.
