Ok folks, the new forums have been set up, still based in phpBB technology but in a more advanced and secure way.

We went from phpBB 2.06 to phpBB 2.19, via a conversion from our phpNuke instalation, therefore all the posts (I hope) are still here. Also, there is no need to register. Unfortunately, Private Messages could not be brought over easily, so to see them you must go to the main page.

A lot of items will broken regarding the old forums. Here's a rundown of what is missing.

Broken:

  • No stored Private Messages - This will no be fixed! Your old PMs are still acessible through "Your Account" properties and you should safe guard anything of value there. From now on use only the PM system built into the forums;
  • No avatars images - This is relative only to people that used built in graphics based in the openplanesim.com system; FIXED
  • Smileys missing - They will be ported when possible from the old instalation; FIXED
  • Links to posts - Links to posts within the old structure (openplanesim.com only) most likely wont work. Use the search function instead and if you own the post, please update it;


New Enhancements:
  • RSS - Has been implemented, look for a sticky regarding RSS
  • Theme - A new theme, based in SDOE colours will be implemented when possible;
  • A better reference thingy - As asked by Klaus over at the openplanesim.com whish list - Has been implemented in a 24, 48 and 72 hours mode.
  • Post counter - A post counter of how many new posts have been placed since your last visit
  • New private message indicator - As requested, instead of a pop up, you now get a colourfull warning
  • New forum block - with latest and popular. Also shows posts from private forums (if you have access to them)
  • New activity block - shows members active in the last 24 hours, also in the memberlist shows when a certain member last visited (as logged in)
  • Usage statistics - SQL and queries - at the bottom
  • Printer friendly page - For printing and safekeeping


Other things that you find broken or that you wish that could be implemented, please state it in this sticky.
All for now,

Romeu

I think we need a link from the Forum page(s) which can take us back to the site homepage, and thence the other buttonbar options. I had such a link in the form of the buttonbar for a few weeks, until I clicked the link in the "SimHQ" thread, and now it's gone - I guess it was just living in a cache.

Now, in order to get from the Forums to the homepage I have to use my bookmarks to relog to the site.

Hmmm....This is Zoah for those of you who do not know this new "alias" of mine, I will no longer use "Zoah" as of some douche has gone and stolen it and used it on other games, so here I am. Does anyone of whoever is registered know if this means eRO will be back, or if Harp is putting her new game into action on this forum? Reply back please. <3

Mate, I think you've got the wrong forum. Smile
