Forum software upgraded

Postby Yoorah » Tue Oct 28, 2014 10:40 pm

The forum software underwent a major code upgrade, introducing many improvements both to the user experience and the nuts and bolts under the hood.

The two most easily noticeable improvements are the new notification system and responsive theme (should work better on mobile devices.) If curious about the other, more technical changes, see this page: https://www.phpbb.com/about/launch/

Unfortunately, this also means the previous sharp style no longer works. I've had to revert to the default for now, with some style-related minor fixes still required.

Let me know if you notice anything broken!

I remember when this forum stretched its size out to my whole browser size. Now it just feels squished.

I think the setup of the top bar looks better than it did before? But what bothers me is the read/unread and threads you posted in icons. Besides that I can get used to.
I don't recall giving you permission to highlight this page.

A custom theme is coming, though it's currently in development. This is a major new code release with a new architecture, so that stuff needs to be remade. And you can still sort of hide text. \o/
