Your best bet is to update to 3.2.8 and use a style similar to the one you're using now. There's Allan style subsilver.wyclef wrote: ↑Mon Dec 02, 2019 2:40 pmHey, I have an old PHPBB board with a customized Subsilver2 theme running v3.0.14 on PHP 5.6 and I need to upgrade. Wondering if I upgrade to the latest version of PHPBB if the Subsilver2 theme I am using will need to be changed significantly and if so, if there is a lower version of PHPBB that might work with PHP 7.2 and my theme a bit better as I do not have the time to make significant updates right now. Thanks.
Both the phpBB version and the PHP are long past end of life as I'm sure the OP is aware, hence the need to upgrade that they mention.
I'd counter with the viewpoint that a hosts shouldn't be offering a long out-of-date version of PHP, such as PHP 5.6, (PHP: Supported Versions) and should be actively encouraging sites to update to supported versions.
I agree in an ideal world but phpBB is living proof of the chain of upgrades required. How many mods, extensions, styles etc are updated in a timely manner or even declare that they will be updated. Its not long ago that phpBB itself wouldn't operate under php 7.2 which left an extremely small window of time after 7.1 was eol'd.
Actually officially 7.2's active support has ended, but there will be security fixes (if necessary) for another year (approximately).
Good point. However, I figure the security aspect would be the primary reason why hosts would elect to drop old versions of php.warmweer wrote: ↑Mon Dec 09, 2019 5:32 pmActually officially 7.2's active support has ended, but there will be security fixes (if necessary) for another year (approximately).
