Downgrade from 3.2.3 to 3.2.0

Post by abrakadabra » Tue Oct 23, 2018 8:22 pm

Is this possible? Because I have a very nice 3.2.0 theme and it doesn't work up on 3.2.3

Later edit: After telling me to customise the theme from 3.2.0 to 3.2.3, I don't know if I can because, there are more documents in the folder as it's being shown at area51.phpbb3

My friend gave me this theme: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

How can I do that? I read the topic but I don't know where to paste that code.

And if my template is 3.2.0, i need to upgrade it to 3.2.1, then to 3.2.2, after that to 3.2.3

or I can just jump to upgrade it to 3.2.3 ?

you can go stright to 3.2.3

actually there is a much easier way than following those code changes linked above.

Manually updating styles other than prosilver using the Code Changes Tool.

  1. Remember to always make backups.
  2. Get a good text editor like notepad++.
  3. Go here: Code Changes Tool
  4. Click on the correct update version from the list.
  5. Click on styles then on Prosilver.
  6. Click on each part in turn and make the edits listed that are required for your style files.
    (style.cfg, template then each html file, theme, then each css file, etc. )
  7. On the code changes page, click on the relevant filename.
  8. From the backup files on your computer, open that same file in your text editor.
  9. Make the changes listed on the page to the file in your text editor. Use the text editor find and replace function.
    (The legend at the top of the page tells you what to do with which parts of the code.)
  10. Once you have completed all the changes in your text editor, click on save.
  11. Go back to the previous page and click on the next file to be edited.
  12. Open that file in your text editor and make the listed changes to it.
  13. etc. etc.
  14. Upload all the updated style files back to the server to overwrite the ones that are there.

Thank you! But as I can see, ajax.js is missing from my template file. Is that a problem? As many things, and I have faq_body which is not listed in template folder (area51)

The faq system was rewritten for phpBB 3.2 and that file was removed if I remember correctly

if you could post a link to it so we could take a look maybe we could help you fix it.

however, the best way to solve this is to simply find a 3.2.3 style from the styles demo here and use that instead of something that you don't know anything about.

Funny thing. It's the style from your signature. Milk 3.2.0. My question is, how can I upgrade it to 3.2.3 since is not prosilver and has another items inside folder rather than those showed in area51

how about a link to your site and to the style folder. we can look and see what version the style is for.

also, when you buy a style you should get support for it including updates. contact christian about it, I am sure that he can help you
with the update.

That is a payed style, you need to ask support for that style there.
I see they have a 3.2.3 version: https://themeforest.net/item/milk-multi ... e/16119149
