Not only is it worth it, it's recommended.
It's 3.0 so it won't have any extensions at all, they will be MODs. None are compatible with 3.2.x
Isn't that the kind of conclusion which I should classify under unfounded generalisation? (not that I'm qualified to state whether it's correct or not)
I know and I try to abide by ROT (or WET) but there are limits (readability is a must for me).AmigoJack wrote: ↑Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:37 amFrameworks (in contrast to libraries) always have their own way of using them, mostly thru added abstraction which may improve following the DRY principle (unless you realize that PHP itself is an abstraction already) at the cost of ignoring the KISS principle (you never use 100% of a framework but most likely 100% of your own code). I understand phpBB chose it because of not wanting to "reinvent the wheel" in one or more situations, tho.
I don't think so at all ! Update from one outdated version to another (3.0.12 to 3.0.14.) doesn't make no sens ! 3.0.14 is not responsive (more the 50% of visited websites are today visited with mobile devices) Make modifications in the core of softwares is also outdated
3.012 never existed.
Are you milking this one, or do you honestly not see the difference between 3.012 and 3.0.12?
Sorry, it seems I was having a bad yesterday (I actually thought you were sneering at AmigoJack) my mistake
My concern is stability for the forums which are hosted on a MVPS currently. If 3.0.12 needs to be upgraded to something else which has proven to be stable and secure then I am all for it. If not then I would have to be convinced that upgrading is in the best interests of my board members. Luckily we have never been hacked that I know of and the board was down for a few moments a year ago but that was a host issue.AmigoJack wrote: ↑Fri Jan 12, 2018 8:49 amI take the chance and ask you: is the zoom feature in today's web browsers sufficient for you to read texts? Or is it not that much of a help, because then most website designs shift/distort too drastically?
I keep my page size @ 125% which when I use my reading glasses which is fine for most reading. It was quite a shock to wake up from a coma to discover my eyesight had been affected due to septic shock. From 20/20 to a lot worse in just one step. And before anyone asks, I was hit by another driver and suffered injuries including a perforated bowel. 4 months bedridden and almost two years to recover fully. Lucky I have three cats I can borrow lives from.
As for your initial post: if you have never modified your board then upgrading should be the easiest (but it still involves testing it before instead of blindly trusting that nothing will break). If you modified your board, then at least compare all files against those of a 3.0.14 installation and adopt changes. The 3.2.x series will give you a few more features and a few more granular user settings - if all members of your board are basically only use it for communicating and don't even use features like notifications then upgrading has no point.
Dion Designs imported the forum from forumotion in August of 2013 and converted it into PHP. It is the same (primary design) as it was when it was at forumotion. Dion did make a couple of other templates (styles) that can be used by members but otherwise I do not see any :mods" on the board. I have wanted to add the ability to translate the board into other languages such as Spanish, French and such.
From a technical point of view your server software runs out of support as well (i.e. PHP 5.6) and upgrading that will kill a 3.0.x board version. So far no security threats exist for either PHP 5.6.33 nor phpBB 3.0.14.
