global announcements on 3.0.6

Post by Brenakie »

I searched high and low and could not find any documentation/threads on GA's.

I have a fresh install of 3.0.6, I posted a GA and not seeing it at the top of every forum or within the User Control Panel. The post is where it should be but that's it...

I looked through the ACP and could not find anything GA related. Can someone point me in the right direction doc, thread or site?

Thank you,

Bren

Make sure it's a Global announcement, not just announcement. Global announcements should appear through the whole board.

Please provide me with a link to your board and a test account.

I find the 'New Forum Features' announcement is global.

I did find your style prosatin_copper is an outdated version. You should search for a version which is compatible with your version 3.0.6 of phpBB3 or use another style.

I find the announcement on each forum I checked.

Your style needs updated as you will not and do not have all the features of 3.0.6 and it will undoubtedly cause you issues.

Thanks for getting back to me.

So to recap, with a fresh install of 3.0.6 using subsilver, the subsilver style needs to be updated?

So if that's correct. I'd need to go to the styles db ans search for prosilver? Again if so, I did and the search came up empty.

Thanks again

prosatin_copper is the outdated style. I can NOT see an issue with the global announcement, it shows everywhere.
