there is a drop down at the top right of the styles database where you choose styles of each version. when you choose 3.2 the only ones that appear are those that work with 3.2 and those that also work with 3.1 and 3.0


I agree that if you are going to archive everything associated with a version that is EOL, then styles should also be archived but I would think it is not really worth the trouble for the styles database.

As you can still download older versions (back to 3.0.0) from the official download path, it is only logical that you can also download suitable mods and styles ;)

I was looking in the Customisation Database at the Styles section (for some styles that work with 3.2. I noticed that there are some styles there that appear to only work with 3.0 (for example World of Warcraft: Alliance, Serenity or Hestia).

I'm wondering if those styles are now depricated and could be moved somewhere else.

Or if, maybe people could search specifically for styles designed for 3.1 or 3.2 and find only the styles that will work for the version of phpBB they have. (The same sort of thing could apply to the other things in the Customisation Database.
The guys above said it all, styles sorting is available through a drop-down in the CDB, creating filters like this (3.1) and this (3.2).

The default is still set to "All branches" mainly because we currently have two versions which are still supported. But I do agree that at some point it might be good to hide the 3.0 styles by default to make it easier for new users. Good suggestion, we'll keep it in mind. :)

Thanks Robert.

I did have a look around, but didn't think to click on a dropdown called "All branches".

I'm down to 49 options now, which is going to be a lot easier to work through, as I try to find a new style to use. 8-)

That's a good point.

I suppose some people need to install unsupported versions of phpBB, in order to help recover and migrate old databases...or so that they can use a deprecated version of phpBB to help them upgrade old forum MODs or styles and so on. :)

I wonder if the term "All branches" could be changed to something like "phpBB version", when you next work on that page, to make it a bit clearer to someone like me who doesn't join up the dots with "All branches".

I like the idea of you being able to hide the older styles (without getting rid of them). I wonder if you could also flip the dropdown upside down, so that you have "Current Styles" at the top and "Depricated Styles" below, a bit like this:
hypothetical drop down list wrote:phpBB Version
Supported Versions
phpbb 3.2.x
phpbb 3.1.x
Deprecated Versions
phpBB 3.0.x
phpBB 2.0.x
Something like that might help the users focus in on the phpBB version they want to find stuff for, and defocus the old stuff, without making it too difficult to find.

Found something else - Styles missing from the demo website

The phpBB 3.2 styles demo website has 42 styles on it, but the search for 3.2 styles in the Customisation Database brings up 49 contributions.

If I can figure out which seven styles are missing from the styles demo website, is there someone I could ask to get them put onto the demo website?

EDIT: No, there are 43 phpBB 3.2 styles - not 49. So there is only one style missing from the demo.

EDIT 2: My Invision is missing.

Found some people missing a message on the prosilver style page

The prosilver page says this:
Styles Robot wrote:Please remember support for this style will be giving in our 3.1.x Styles Support Forum or 3.2.x Styles Support Forum, and bugs about prosilver should be reported in the phpBB Tracker.
8 users have missed that and posted topics on the forum that the Support tab brings up.

I wonder if a global moderator would be able to post a "Go here for support" sticky in that forum (that pretty much repeats all the blurb that Styles Robot wrote) and then lock the forum down, so that nobody else can start topics.

(Maybe the same thing can be done for anything else in that database, where people should request support outside of that area.)

No that is not possible. All we can do is mark it as "no support provided", which I've done now.

As for the MyInvision style: that seems to be as designed for some reason that escapes me right now. The style does not seem to be "prosilver based" so it's not included in the demo listing even though there is a demo for it. Will look into it though, thanks.

Strange that you can't lock the forums in those bits, but it seems like a non-standard thing you are using there, so I guess I don't have to learn how it works.

Thanks for doing the sticky.

When I was here a few years back, before 3.1.x went live, I was under the impression that everything was going to have to be prosilver based, after 3.0.x. :?

I'll have to look at it again later, to see what you turn up.

Not strange at all since they’re not forums. ;) Glad they aren’t because can you imagine if each and every contribution had its own permissions? Would be a total nightmare. No thanks :P

Nah, styles don’t have to be prosilver based at all. The one in question is not set as being prosilver based, although I’m not sure if that’s just a mistake by the author, but I won’t be changing their selections there.

phpBB.com generally does not install extensions so as to keep as close to a vanilla install as possible. If you would like this functionality on your board, feel free to request an extension or download one if available. ;)

Besides what was already mentioned by Kailey, it will be an available feature of the next feature release of phpBB so it will be available when this forum gets upgraded to that version, which usually happens shortly before the official gold release. We won't be adding an extension for that to this site before then. Since you'll probably make a follow-up question of "when will it be released" the answer to that would be: at a future date yet to be determined.
