A New Year and a New Website

Postby warren-the-ape » Thu Jan 02, 2014 20:36

Happy new year to everyone!

The start of a new year is a good moment for a new website. The site has been upgraded from the old board software (php-nuke & phpbb2) to the latest board software; phpBB3. With that comes a fresh new theme, and a couple of neat little features like file attachments.

All topics, posts and your own user profile (along with your settings) have been converted.

Some functionality and links are still missing, which will be restored soon.

I noticed that not all avatars were converted properly. For those unfortunate, either upload it again in your profile or leave a post in this topic so I can upload it for you.

If you come across any other strange things, let us know in this topic :)

Jup, it takes some time to get used to. It looks a bit different but most things should still be in the same place, more or less ;)

Idea, update, functionality - good!
design/colors - bad! Warren wtf? :D

Looks bland sry. Why not keep the green links (a href) with dark gray boards? That color scheme was iconic and unique, that defines PS even more than the logo.

Where did the memberlist go? I found a link to it, when you go to:
User control panel - usergroups - under "Memberships" there is a link to the memberlist, which doesn't work.

I think this is some like filters. If someone annoying you U add him to foe and U don't receive a PM from him and also don't see his post on forum.
Add friend hmm inversely? but i'm not sure. You probably creating a own team on forum like "dmg|" and probably you are informed when they post smth :). Ofc I'm not 100% sure

Update:

The et_code is back! Thanks to Rapid for converting his old code to the new system.

You'll be able to use the et_code tag like you used to before;

Enemy Territory Code: Select all
