Re: Help, can I transition my forum back from heavily modded to vanilla PhpBB?

1 - delete all but .htaccess and index.htm from your cache folder. 2 - Have a look here: http://3di.space/32/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9 .. a new founder/admin is provided for you to use and see.. there is a version for 3.0.x and one for 3.1.x. Hey, nice tool! I may use that, as one of the "broken" featu...

Re: Help, can I transition my forum back from heavily modded to vanilla PhpBB?

In fact, that's not your case. 11 - delete all of your folders/files except for config.php, images/, files/ and store/ That reminds me of the wordpress support forums where I'd eventually recommend to delete everything save the wp-upload and wp-config folders, huhu. Just to report that I am very th...

Did I figure the correct way to to mass empty a subforum with PhpMyAdmin, please?

Hello! I want to slim down a phpBB database, this is one of the required steps in my larger project to repair a broken phpBB 3.0.14 forum. But, the forum being broken, I am *also* not able to use the administration CP to prune the one largest subforum: the Recycle Bin. At this point, I'm going to pu...

Re: Special characters failing to load, replaced by generic rectangle symbols

I have seen that , but I believe that if you download the style and install it you won't see those, you will see the proper graphics. I think it is a glitch in the style demo. robert Your answer convinced me to install a 3.1 version in a test folder, to check for myself, and, yes, you were right, w...

[SOLVED] Special characters failing to load, replaced by generic rectangle symbols

Hello, I'm looking into adopting a theme once my old board upgrades to phpBB 3.1/3.2, however I noticed an odd issue while browsing the official themes for PhpBB 3.1. In some themes, some symbols are replaced by generic tiles. An image is better than a thousand words: In Firefox z1 firefox.jpg In Ch...

Re: Help, can I transition my forum back from heavily modded to vanilla PhpBB?

however, before you upgrade to 3.1 you still need to remove all the old MODs from your 3.0 database. you do that by installing the STK as mentioned above. run the database cleaner. BACKUP EVERYTHING FIRST once you have done that, test your 3.0 board to see if there are any errors based on old MODs....

Re: Help, can I transition my forum back from heavily modded to vanilla PhpBB?

Then it will be like that, 3.0.14 half-broken -> 3.1 -> Rhea.

Thank you dearly for your help :)

Re: Help, can I transition my forum back from heavily modded to vanilla PhpBB?

Thanks David, it's quite reassuring. I hope I won't abuse your kindness, if I ask about PhpBB3.1/3.2? If I am to go back to a vanilla PhpBB, I may as well go for the 3.1 branch, or even better, the upcoming 3.2, that would be a fresh base. In that case, am I right to believe the proper order is to (...

Help, can I transition my forum back from heavily modded to vanilla PhpBB?

Hello, Long story short, my 3.0.14 PhpBB forum is half broken because it relies on multiple mods, several of them have stopped being compatible at some point. The visitors' side is OK, but the admin side isn't, several parts of the admin are broken, get me logged off and relogged into a white page u...

[Solved] Wrong theme for guests/non-logged in users

Hello ! I may have missed a setting somewhere, could I please ask for advice ? This thread is a sort of sequel to that other thread . I manage a forum that has two themes, a "cool" and an "uncool" one. Following the kind advice I received here, I determined which would be the default theme for this ...

[Solved] How to switch all members to a given theme ?

Hello, On my forum (I am the admin), there are two possible themes, and one of them has been progressively abandoned, and is now viewed as no good, while the other theme has been gradually improved, again and again. Please, could I ask you - 1 - If it is possible to mass-switch the forum members to ...

Re: Ghost threads, only the titles are left O_o

Quoting you: « There isn't a global option because there's no way to tell what is and isn't a real topic .» I was hoping the contrary, hoping that thread titles without any content (neither posts nor existing username - I eventually deleted the username too, with vague hopes it could work) to back t...

Re: Ghost threads, only the titles are left O_o

Thank you Kevin, that's a worthy start, at least I can remove these topics from the place where they most stand out :)

However, with thousands of these, would there be a more "global" solution ?
