Post by Admin1 » Tue Aug 01, 2017 3:31 pm

Ashley is in the process of adding many features to our new forum. Some of you had selected different styles (color) on the previous forum. If you would like see what is available, look here :arrow: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... les-12/3.2

If you see one you would like to have installed, post it here.

He has already installed AllenStyle-SUBSILVER and Revolution. If you want to try one of those, open User Control Panel,

then go to the Board Preferences tab-->Edit Global Settings tab-->My Board Style and select the style from the drop down arrow. You can go back to the default prosilver style at any time.

Ashley - the smilie pack we had on the prophpbb forum was called Smooth.pak. Is there a compatible one for this version?

Yes it is, though I don't have a .pak file for them currently. I will have to test and sort this out tomorrow ;)

Yep, I found this right after I posted that. I'll get used to this, now that they finally let me in. Thinking you ought to post that little detail up top somewhere. You know I'm going to miss my cookies for at least a year to come. No font choice? No font color? Guessing those might be coming. Been through this sort of thing on my site. Most worked, but not all. Fingers crossed!

Okay, so I've changed some settings in the ACP, maybe that might help with the cookie and posting issues? As for the editor, you are looking at a "Pure phpBB" and the quick reply has always been basic. I can look at extending it, though I personally don't recommend this as all the features are available in the full editor ;)

Let's leave the quick reply box for the time being. I think folks will get used to it and use it for quick, un-formatted replies like this one.
