Template and Extension compatibility

Post by airnayden »

Hello everyone!

Recently I upgraded my board from phpBB 3 to phpBB 3.1 which involved upgrading the template as well.
Template: I modified the CSS of the original 3.1 template
Extensions: I have couple extensions installed, one of which is phpBB Seo(most important for me).

The question: if I upgrade to phpBB 3.2 now, what will happen to the installed extensions and the modified template?

Regards

You will need to ask that question at the place where you got the extension

there is no "seo" extension in "extension database", only there is in "extension development" section. you can wait a little more for extensions.

Depends on how it was "modified" but 3.1 styles do not work with 3.2 so unless it was an event (which should be in the 3.2 style) you will need to reapply your modifications.

They will probably need changing as there were major changes to the css between 3.1 and 3.2

So in the end the process for upgrade from 3.1 to 3.2 is the same as 3.0x to 3.1 => templates and extension should be converted again?

https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... upgrade31/ states:
All styles will need to be updated, even if they give the appearance of working.


So how to update styles? I recently did a migration from 3.0 to 3.1 which caused my board to completely lose its style. Should I change style again or is there any guide to migrate a style from 3.1 to 3.2 ???

My theme is simplicity for phpBB-3.1

I did it manually. The same applies to the extensions. Seems like I should do it once again
