Re: Updating to php7

You could try creating another file: $mysqli_connection = new MySQLi('localhost', 'user', 'pass', 'db'); if ($mysqli_connection->connect_error) { echo "Not connected, error: " . $mysqli_connection->connect_error; } else { echo "Connected."; } Replace 'localhost', 'user', 'pass', 'db' with your data...

Re: Problem with thumbnails - display fullsize vs download

Just adding some more info - if I upload a new image to a post, it display and behaves correctly (ie displays as full-size when clicking on the thumbnail). So the problem with the existing images seems to be something that the conversion process has caused. ============ Edit - SOLVED ! The MIME type...

Problem with thumbnails - display fullsize vs download

I recently installed a "test" version of phpBB to play around with it and learn how it worked. As part of that, I created a few dummy posts and added some inline images. I had the attachment settings for "Display images inline" and ""Create Thumbnail" both enabled, and they did what I expected, name...

Re: [Convertor] MyBB 1.8.x

I have managed to work around the error with the avatar gallery. It looks like the source forum (MyBB, also an Installatron instance) was missing the avatar gallery altogether. I commented out any lines of code in functions_mybb18.php that related to gallery type avatars, and the conversion worked f...

Re: [Convertor] MyBB 1.8.x

Thanks Robert. I'll try that later today and see how it goes. ======= Edit: ok, that (using an Installatron-based installation of phpbb) seems like it was the problem. Uploading and installing manually a complete phpbb 3.1 package to the server, allowed me to see the converter tab. I'm getting an er...

Re: [Convertor] MyBB 1.8.x

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately it hasn't helped. I have copied the install folder into phpbb root. See screenshot below showing directory listing for root path and also the root/install/convertors path directory listing.png I have tried browsing to: - {phpBB Root}/install without being lo...

Re: [Convertor] MyBB 1.8.x

I'm having some basic problems getting the converter working... I have uploaded the converter files and installed them into the forum root directory (ie the one with index.php, config.php etc), retaining the full path to the converter files themselves (eg phpbb_root\install\converters). I then point...
