Finally I've moved everything over to the new forums - phpBB3. Some pretty neat features on this board, but I've tried my best to keep the same layout.

 

As you may have seen, some troubles....

 

- phpBB3 does not support HTML in signatures for security reasons. As such, you will need to use the Profile to go and edit your signature.

- Your account is linked against the main SWRebellion account. You should not have to worry about logins, however this has only been tested with Firefox and Internet Explorer

 

Give me some feedback and reports of troubles (if you can get on this thread)

Its pretty cool Mad. It just seems more...white. Like with the buttons and stuff. And the text is a bit different. It will probably take getting used to, but Im sure its for the best in the end. Time marches on and such like that.

 

Edit: Our information is "hidden". I dont know if thats intentional or not. Like, our post count and date joined.

Edit2: I saw, particularly in Eagles posts, that when he uses the ' sign, as in the word "don't", the ' becomes a "A". Im not sure if thats due to his connection over in the Land of Chocolate or not. Ok, Im done being nit-picky. :D

Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the Dark Side!

I believe its fixed.

 

I did try to match the font as best I could. I don't know why its defaulting to a different one... Web Developer is telling me they are using the same font class. Any CSS experts want to crack this?

 

phpBB3 switched to a UTF-8 encoding. I'm not sure why its making all those characters funky :(

About post counts. I believe it's not the most popular feature nowadays (it used to encourage spammers ]:->). Many bulletin board systems do not even have that feature anymore, but since phpBB was the one of the first who came with this I guess it will be still there somewhere waiting to be turned on by Evaders :)

 

I would probably try to check out Eagle's post directly in the database to see what characters did he actually use. It's possible he didn't type ASCII (american) apostrophe, but a german one and if the posts in the database weren't specially treated during the upgrade (eg. converted from one encoding to another), funky characters might appear. One would expect the forum migration software to do that automatically though.

 

And fonts seems to be really fixed now :( It reverted to browser defaults before I believe and that was a bit more readable for me (on my computer verdana is too tiny and slim and seems to get anti-aliased away on a dark backgroun). But it still seems to be somehow better than before :)

Post count was different because I didn't change the style sheet. I'll be making tweaks as I find various issues :)

I'll try leaving the fonts off for the postbody and see if that's better

Woah! there's like... a whole colour bar at the side here.

 

OMFG and I can UNDERLINE STUFF NOW!

 

Here I was about to say it didn't really seem all that diffrient. (Actually at first glance it seemed like a downgrade.)

 

*Squint* :| Umm... what's the Save button do?

 

EDIT: Hmm... edit button is down at the bottom now, gotta remember that.

 

MY AVATAR! NOOOOoooooooo!!

Tis been resized. :( Doesnt look good at all now. :?

I can create subforums... and subforums of subforums.. and subforums of subforums of subforums...

It will help for what I have planned for the site and the forums :)

 

Save, apparently, saves a draft. Too bad I don't think it autosaves nor loads up the draft immediately. That would be rather sweet

Oh, the second forum to which I´m registered and changed to phpp3. 8O I´m feeling fine with that. Allthough it´s a bit tricky with setting up the signature again. I may need some help with that. :?

It´s eagleish! :mrgreen:

 

No, I´m allways using the french accent.

Who cares at all?! :roll:

Overall, I like most of the new layout. But what I do not like, however, is that there is no real devider line between one persons post, and the next so it all seems to flow together making it a bit harder to read for me.
I once knew a great man. Nothing got to him, and he always smiled. May he forever rest in peace, knowing fully well that his freinds shall remember him.

HOLY FREAKING CRAP! We have a whole new side bar tab of colors! When did that get here? And the old smilies have two new friends, now! HOLY CRAP! I am freaking out! (BTW: Couldn't we underline stuff before?)

 

This is certainly new... If GAT were still a regular he'd flip over all of his new choices in blue text color....

 

I'm a traditionalist, so I'll gripe and moan for a little while over these changes, just like I did when we swapped out the old SD in the upper left for the Noghri Forge drew up... Hey, you got rid of some of Forge's alt text! Er, right, this isn't about everything that's changed, this is about what I want to see fixed. :oops:

 

Umm... Those little dots up on the tabs in Firefox disturb me. That's the best I can do. I like the new stuff alright.

Ditto for me.

Finally, after years of hard work I am the Supreme Sith Warlord! Muwhahahaha!! What?? What do you mean "there's only two of us"?

Two new Smileys? Where? There´s still the same number. Maybe you can see them all without maximising the smiley-window. ;)

 

Wasn´t logged in as I wanted to reply to a post. Normally you can log in right after clicking on "reply" without any problems. After I´ve pushed "login" it said: "posting from another server not allowed". That was funny. I had to login on the mainpage than. :?

Who cares at all?! :roll:

Some of the new code is the autologin - that is, it should automatically log you in if you are logged into the site. I'll try to see if I can replicate and fix this

I've been fighting the CSS stylesheet, but I cannot always get it to do what I want :)

This might be an "I'm-too-dumb-to-enable-cookies" issue, but I always have to log in again whenever I come to this site on my compy with Firefox- no issues for the Internet Explorer one, though. Odd... Umm, if it is an issue on my end, how do I enable cookies? :oops:

@Tofu

I´ll try to explain it, but I´ve got the german version, so I´m not sure how exactly everything is called in the english version. :?

 

Goto Extras :arrow: Options :arrow: Data Security (?), dunno how it´s called exactly, but it´s that button left of the "security" button :arrow: Cookies :arrow: check "enable Cookies" ;)

Who cares at all?! :roll:

Hmm, it seems there are some part of the swrebellion.com web that still link to the old forums. One such is the recent forum topics section on the main page. I'll add other obsolete links if I stumble upon them.

 

Edit: The 'Login/User info' section on the title page also seems to link to the old forums.

Bah! Im trying to post in the "Outside Interests" and when I hit submit or preview it bounces me back to the main page and doesnt add my post.

 

Edit: Interesting. It let me post this, so I went back to try again, and its still doing it. The outside interests dont like me...

 

Edit2: Even more interesting. I was trying to add an update to the "Nationalism" thread, and it keeps bouncing me out. But the other topics work fine. Why would we have just one bad topic?

 

Edit3: Yes, this is very interesting indeed. Why would I not be able to post in this one particular thread? Someone help me!!! I have so much to tell!!!

SOCL is toying with you- he doesn't like your views. For some reason all of the posts say "5:00 AM" underneath the join date for each person. It's presently midnight where I am, and I'm pretty sure I registered on EST. This isn't an actual problem, just an anomaly.

Darth_Rob, send me what you're posting and I will try it. (PM me if you need my email)

 

Yea the join date got smashed when I converted the users. phpNuke doesn't store the time, so it thinks everyone was set to 5:00 AM somehow...
