More questions about 3.1

Post by cally6008 »

I have never used prosilver before so apologies if these seem dumb questions.

Do birthdays only show on prosilver when it is someone's birthday ?
On subsilver2, there is still a box at the bottom mentioning no birthdays

Has the "location" and "last active" been removed from the members list on 3.1 ?

Is this Mod (or extension) needed in 3.1 or is this featured on 3.1 as standard now ?
Prime Notify Mod - Inserts the content of a post or private messages into the notification e-mail.

Edit 22.06pm to add another question

I just looked at the phpBB 3.1.0-RC5 released topic here - viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2265346
Requirements
Please note that phpBB 3.1 has some requirements that differ from phpBB 3.0:
PHP version 5.3.3 or greater is required
PHP’s json extension is required
NA to me - For PostgreSQL users, only versions 8.3 and above are supported
NA to me - Firebird is not supported anymore


I've checked on my website hosting and I'm using PHP version 5.3.28
Does that need updating by the web hosting company before I can use phpbb 3.1 ?

What is "PHP’s json extension" ?

Sorry for all questions but I want to be ready to upgrade forum 3.1 and have a better idea of what I'm doing before it comes to actually doing it

I've never used subsilver2, so I can't really say for sure.

I can't see them either. It appears they have been removed.

Prime Notify Mod - Inserts the content of a post or private messages into the notification e-mail.
The language files don't indicate that the content is included, so most likely the extension will be needed.

If you are running 5.3.28, then you're fine. As for the json extension, upload a file to your server called phpinfo.php with the following code:

Code: Select all

<?php
phpinfo();
?>
Then, browse to the file in your favorite web browser. About halfway down, you should see something like this:

Location and last active is showing up for me: memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1136425 please note that I'm set to hidden so you won't see the date and time when I'm last active
Please note that I will not be porting any of my mods to phpBB 3.1. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

For the location and last active in the memberlist, I can still see "last active" but not "location". They still appear on a profile though

OP said "members list" so I'm guessing they meant memberlist.php. :?

You need the rights to see "last active" (normal user = no, admin = yes). But you are able to change it, i think.

I was under the impression they didn't have phpBB installed, but re-reading the post, it seems they do. :oops:
