Question concerning moving from 3.0 to 3.1

Post by derrickhand300 » Thu Jul 28, 2016 5:28 pm

Hello- this is my first post here so my question is pretty basic
I started building my first phpBB site a few days ago by downloading and installing 3.1 on my server-after trying to find a style that suited me the one I was most attracted to was Graand Red because it closely matches my main non phpbb site
After trying to install it I found that it will not work on 3.1 because it is a 3.0 style so I tried copying the css and files over to 3.1 and after a day got pretty close but in the end I could not make it work..
Wanting that particular style I decided to do a reinstall of the 3.0 version of phpBB and now have the style configured and working great with oneall and sharethis apps
My question is now that its configured to 3.0 IF I update it to 3.1 will my style come over correctly?
I was a bit frustrated because there were so few 3.1 extensions here yesterday and some issues with 404 errors when trying to click on them- but today i see a huge number of 3.1 compatible extensions so I am hoping I can move with this style to 3.1
ANY help you can share is greatly appreciated

No - 3.0 styles will not work with 3.1, you will need to find a 3.1 style that suits your needs.

There are something in the region if 12k changes to styles between 3.0 and 3.1 so converting is not an option.

Thank you David and Robert!
Robert the style you have looks great!
From what I can read/understand here I need to remove all the mods I have made so far-is that correct?
Or can I use the automod to install the style you shared with me?
If not using automod then would I replace the Graand_Red folder with the contents of your style?
Sorry for the additional questions- been working 3 days and nights on wrapping my head around how phpBB works..
Thank you agin guys!

assuming, as you said, that you are running phpbb 3.1.9;


1. download the zip file from the link above.
2. unzip it on your computer
3. using your ftp, upload the resultant folder named redgrand to your server to the phpbb folder named styles
4. in your phpbb admin panel, click on the customize tab
5. click on install styles from the left menu
6. you will see the redgrand style listed, click on the link that says install style
7. go to the main page of the admin panel, click on board settings in the left menu.
8. scroll down and choose red grand as the default and as the guest style
9. click yes for override user
10. back to the main admin panel page, click on the button that says purge cache and then click yes.
11. go back to your main board home page, on your keyboard, hold down the shift key and click on the reload/refresh button in your browser.

done.


remember, nothing about phpbb 3.0 works with phpbb 3.1
not the files, not the MODs, not the styles, automod does not work etc. etc.
