NEW FORUM SOFTWARE
« on: July 14, 2006, 09:15:58 PM »
Well

it was finally time to change from phpbb due to the lack of nice features, and the increasing spamming.
we have switched to SMF, another free software.

It's completely new for me too, so I need some time to get used with it. Guess the same goes for you.
If you have any problems or requests, or encounter any errors, please post them here.

Thanks,
Zak

Interesting :) I must admit I was quite surprised when I pressed the refresh button :)

Let's hope this style is better than the previous (which was good)
But we can't be quite sure.

no, it was worse, too big letters and graphics. I switched back, but of course everyone can change it for himself. The other theme (DilberMC) has 12 color variations.

Oh, and a nice feature, especially for CTG:

Good thing is that you managed to keep the phpBB forum database.
We'll need some time to get use of it...

edit : and why this massage is not in "forum bgfixes" topic ? ;D

Nothing special, something you earn by getting posts.
Green and red stars mark moderators and administrators.

Zak! I cannot rebirth! When I log in as "JTK" I can't see messages, I can't modify my profile. I just can read the latest messages sent and else do nothing...  :( Why?  ???

attachment feature now works fine (just press additional options when posting), as you can see it in this message, but it could happen that the previously attached files were not imported of course.

attachment max size is 128k per attachemtn, 256k per post
avatar max size is 100x100 pixel but there is an automatic resize routine installed if the pic is bigger.

that's strange, I don't know yet what the problem is.

But you can change your name displayed, so if it won't work out your mighty Ghost can change name to simply JTK and I can modify the post counts... (and kill the old JTK  ;D)

You have to do this first, I guess. I cannot change the displayed name because the nich already exists (of course!)  :-[
