I'm currently updating the forum to the last PHPBB version, and for that I need to turn-off extensions, like the recent topics on the main page, and the custom style.

I will reinstall extensions later, if they're compatibles.
The style don't seem do work on the new version, so I'll remake it, but I'm not sure how long it will take.

Well, it looks like the update fixed the problem!
... If you excuse the style.

Good work, seems to have restored missing posts and links. Thanks!

I just successfully edited a post to add a link and italics. Having some trouble with loading pages though - the first time I previewed the edit, first time I submitted it and first time I opened the "reachmahjong.com" forum to view this thread, the pages failed to load. I had to retype the changes on the edited post twice.

The new colour does look odd after ten years of the old one! The links to article categories on the site homepage are no great loss as these were broken in the redesign already. Hopefully the extension that shows the latest posts will be compatible as that greatly improves usability.

Would be nice to have separate contact links for users again - there's only one icon under my name now. I suppose these are rarely used though.

Your button is back, Steve!

This is Tumble (Jantora), doing his impression of a parlour staffer in a magazine advert showing their red fives.

I am also having some issues with images loading (since the redesign, before the forum update). Like when I loaded a page from my "mahjong at the movies" thread, eight of the 31 pics were broken. Took a couple of refreshes to get them all.

It's affecting both embedded attachments and user avatars, but after refreshing enough times to show them all, I don't seem to lose any so maybe they get cached somewhere and it's only a one-off error per item?

Edit: I see that the recent topics are back already btw. That's great. :)

I think it's all good now, or almost.

- The spoiler tag doesn't work. :(
Spoiler: show
Super hidden text.

- I couldn't find how to change the forums' color on the main page, but it's not much of a problem.

- No favicon? I don't remember if there was one.

Please report if anything else looks odd or is missing.

The only thing I've noticed which is different is that the Reach Mahjong logo at the top now links back to the site's homepage, rather than the forum's main page. Same with the Home link in the current location under Quick Links
The section that looks like this:
Home < Board index < reachmahjong.com < reachmahjong.com

Neither of these are that major, and will just take getting used to is all. Just mentioning them in case they were unintended changes.

All in all nice work getting it all fixed up Shirluban!

Thanks for restoring the contact icons.

Is there a config setting for default spacing around uploaded images embedded in posts? I was always careful to have one blank line above and below a picture but these seem to have been lost on my old posts.

I'm still seeing the transparent Chun favicon in Chrome.

"Please report if anything else looks odd or is missing."

A small item I have noticed is where it says private messages. It used to say private messages (0) or private messages (1) but now it just says private messages without a number that notifies you if you have any or how many you have.

It's intentional, so I don't have to put back the links bar. :P

I'll check how embedded images works, it seems a bit weird.

I also see the favicon in Chrome, but not in FF nor IE.

The PM count is hidden when at 0 ; it'll be easy to make it always visible.

Yeah! Before it added one line below an embedded image and none above. (I could never remember which way round it was so had to preview.)

To get one blank row above and one below an inline pic I had to do this:

Code: Select all

text
manual blank row
pic
text
Currently it seems to remove one blank row above and one below (if any). To achieve even spacing it requires:

Code: Select all

text                or    text
manual blank row          manual blank row
manual blank row          manual blank row
pic                       pic 1
manual blank row          manual blank row
manual blank row          manual blank row
text                      manual blank row
                          pic 2
I can work around that but I'd rather all my previous efforts were restored to their former glory!

"Please report if anything else looks odd or is missing"

A couple of more items I will mention.
Very tiny text.

Also, some screen shots are not showing up.

I've updated the style.
Spoilers are still KO.

@or2az: The links are displayed correctly for me. Have you tried refreshing the page (Ctrl+F5)?
What browser are you using ?

I'm not sure why the forum doesn't display some images.
It finds them when I access directly to the image URL, ... and then it shows it on the page.
And please provide links instead of screencopies.

Nice, the image spacing is restored. Merci beaucoup. :)

I've had lots of images not loading but it's always fixed by refreshing. Sometimes takes two or three refreshes though.
