Re: Legacy (phpBB 3.2.5)

Post by Big Monstro » Tue Mar 05, 2019 1:20 am

A new Legacy style is available, fully tested on the latest phpBB 3.2.5 (it should work with phpBB 3.2.4 too).

Legacy 1.2.5, for phpBB 3.2.5

Like its two predecessors, it can be considered as a maintenance version but the focus is different: as there is virtually no difference in prosilver between phpBB 3.2.4 and 3.2.5, the main purposes of Legacy 1.2.5 are bugfix and browser compatibility improvement. Depending on fixed bugs, the affected browsers were all or some of them, including the latest Chrome 72 or older MSIE. I didn't rush the release of Legacy 1.2.3 / 1.2.4 and these two versions didn't introduce new bugs to my knowledge but I found some issues from subsilver2 (the original base style) and earlier versions of my board style. Legacy 1.2.5 finally fixes them.

I write this message to report I am still alive :D.

I've now many other priorities, but the Legacy project is still active.

If you use phpBB 3.2.7, the latest version (for phpBB 3.2.5) should work perfectly.

If you use phpBB 3.2.6, update it, as that version is incompatible with older styles (cannot login).

Thank you soooooo much BigMonstro, my community really appreciates your effort to keep this project up to date and thus keep a style close to what existed in the past! :)

Merci merci merci.

Btw. Why can't I find your style on the regular customization database? Is it because it is not based on prosilver?
(And why is there another style called Legacy?

Because my style doesn't meet some requirements : no responsive, no jQuery and other JS libraries loaded and not based on the prosilver's layout (therefore a limited compatibility with extensions). Meet the criterions to validate my style isn't a priority. I've made Legacy for a specific website and I later decided to make it publicly available. It perfectly works for what it was designed for : a lightweight and retrocompatible interface.

That's a complety different project made by someone else. It was intended for phpBB 3.0 and the last version was released in 2013.

I've chosen the name of my board style well before the public availability ; its name refers to the expression "legacy systems".

Please note that topic is not about subsilver2 (although it was used to create Legacy). There are a lot of differences between the two styles.

To adress your problem, you can try an older version : I've managed to make mChat 2.0.0-RC3 functional with subsilver2 in a couple of minutes... Some other modifications will be needed to get all the features but I can chat after I've barely edited the extension... That version is the first one to be fully compatible with phpBB 3.2 and the author has already dropped subsilver2 at the time.
