FORUM UPGRADE

Post by Secret Squirrel » Mon May 21, 2018 8:41 am

The forum is having an upgrade of phpbb forum software to cure the google capture problem

This will be done in stages

1 phpbb software
2 the style,theme ie the colour change
3 the google capture upgrade

If you see a blue forum or the site looks a little odd, please be patient

Thank you

Thanks to Sam BPWEB for helping with the upgrade of phpbb

And Arlemi Turpault and Grace Jansen from IBM who edited the new style to match the previous one
Contacts of RR Emma Duncan

The upgraded google capture thankfully will stop all spam and save our forum admin Fran and Kim hours of work

The new forum might need a tweak colour of hyperlinks etc

Please have a good look round and post if you spot something different

Thanks

Multiple photo uploads seem not to be working for everyone. Didn't work for me.
The attachment BrucePoppy02.JPG is no longer available
The attachment Gizmo9.jpg is no longer available

PS: it worked when I Previewed, and then didn't work when I submitted.

Not working using the Add files button or the drag and drop feature. Always works in Preview, but files disappear after submission.

Hi, any news on this to help us ?

I have just experimented, if I reduce size to 500x333 pixels then I can load multiple it seems - but only 1 if I use the previous size of 800x600 or 640x480.
Also don't seem to be able to mix landscape and portrait shots in single entry ?

There appears to bo some glitches/bugs in the updgrade

There are a couple of options
1. we reverse the upgrade which means we lose the current mobile layout and google capture v2, the spam will create an enormous amout of work for the admin
2. we try the default blue layout to see if it cures the glitches

The old style is no longer supported hence the default style has been changed to colour match the old forum

I am still waiting for the coder to assist

PHPBB is free software, its not paid for, a certain amout of knowledge is required to use it, I only know wordpress that we use for the websites, sadly!

Photos Sarah can you try resize say landscape and portrait say, 700 pixels width and post here, thanks so I can see
Kim, i dont know the answer, can you try a different browser and try to post again

I had more success with the photos I did later last night.
Even managed to post multiple and mix landscape/portrait on Cleo thread at 800 pixel width.
But couldn’t do so on Franklin’s.
