Site Update

Post by paul » 6 years ago

There has been a couple of issues with the site update. Firstly your avatars have not been copied over, so you will need to edit your profile and put this back, I have left the old site online so you may retrieve your picture.

http://www.libera-dreams.com/forum_old/index.php

Secondly, I will need to refresh all the posts so that the youtube videos work, this will take several day to complete :(

If you have any problems, or you cant login for any reason. please post or email webmaster@libera-dreams.com

Hope you like the update :)

You may have noticed a decrease in members since we migrated the forum, this is because there where many inactive accounts(Accounts that have never been activated by the email link)

These accounts are not copied during the migration. So no active member accounts have been lost in the transition ;)

New Forum structure

Post by viabuona » 6 years ago

On Monday, June 13, 2011, the Forum will receive a new structure with a much finer subdivision.

With this new structure it will be much easier to refind posts and also to post Topics in the correct category.

To do this the forum will be closed on this day in the time from 05:00 to 12:00 (UTC).

Hi everyone,
Wow, I'm gone for a few days and again the forum is different ;) I'll have to get used to it but it looks more 'cleaned up' this way.

As some of you could realize the forum was closed for a while :(

The reason was to do the update to the latest release including the backups and tests. For me it looks working fine but should you find some errors so please report them in the Feedback-Section. :P

As you will find out I installed a new editor which gives you some more possibilites and which is also more userfriendly. :)

To get some help about the different buttons you can:
  • Point the mouse over the butten and then you should see a short description
  • Click on the question mark and a help window will be opened.
Should you find some errors so please report them in the feedback forum. You can open this forum with a click on the exclamation mark.

Queston and exclamation mark can be found in the upper right corner of the new editor.

I just sent a message to the webmaster about getting a General Error message whenever I try to enter a thread. I've found that the problem doesn't occur when I use "we_clearblue" style, but does with the other 3 styles.

Thanks for the feedback :)

Yes, the new editor is only installed on the we_clearblue style.

There was an error with the activation of styles. When we voted for the forum style, we had the winners 'we_clearblue' and 'rock'n roll'. So the other styles should be deactivated - which was not the case but I did it now.

Another problem is the rock'n roll style. This style is - let me say not really well supported in the phpBB community :?
I found last week an update of it to the current phpBB release and I will install it on the testforum and take a look how it works and if it's possible to include all the changes we made in the we_clearblue. But I have my doubts and so there is a big probability that we can not longer support this style. So the 4 people (yes, not more) which are using it have maybe to think about a change :roll:

As some of you maybe noticed the forum was closed for a big while - nearly 4 hours :(

Once more I had to do some updates to the newest release of the forum-software but also to the forum-style. At the moment for me it looks working fine but should you find some errors so please report them in the Feedback-Section. :oops:
