Site Update/Fixes


Hello Everyone,

Let me be the first to apologize for not addressing the issues with the website sooner. I have just finished upgrading/reinstalling the board, which seems to have fixed the issues that were plaguing the whole website. I hope this make the user experience better.

In addition, I had to remove most of the themes and extensions in order to pinpoint the issue. I did go back to reinstall the Lucid Lime/Simplicity Themes, but if there was a particular theme you want back, let us know in the Forum Update thread (Link Below). I also went back and installed some of the more useful extensions, so not all is lost. I will slowly reintroduce extensions over time.

In addition to the fix, pbpBB did release a major feature update to the software, which makes a significant in site usage as well as site speed. It also gives the site a bit more modern feel to it. I will let you read more at this link: https://www.phpbb.com/about/launch/

Below is a list of the extensions I did keep:
1. Lightbox Image Viewer
2. Mentions
3. Subjects Removed from Replies
4. Relative Dates (i.e. shows amount of time elapsed since post was made rather than date of post)
5. Board Announcements (So I can do these announcements!)
5. Categories Minimization

In addition, I installed a few new extensions:
1. Advanced BBCOde Box (Adds additional features for formatting subjects!)
2. Auto Topic Previewer (Will show you how a post will actually look while making the post!)
