Forum update

Post by DougWilliams » Sun Sep 13, 2015 5:47 pm

You may have been aware of the scheduled update to the forum for this weekend.
I was able to complete the upgrade to the latest version on Friday. Everything went well. Only took about 10 minutes.
Then, of course, phpBB released another version yesterday.. so I quickly did that one today.
There is apparently one "glitch" that I will have to deal with on a case by case basis, easy fix, but if your default language is set to a non-English language let me know so I can be sure appropriate language pack is installed.

Thanks,

Also, please let me know of any other issues you may get while posting or browsing.
I'm learning from all this. Spammers, multi-language, alien invasion, (just kidding on the alien invasion...or am I?!)

DougWilliams great job, and the perfect forum ;)

my language set in the forum and in Italian

if you need some help I had already experienced, having managed many forums
There are the "Extensions" to manage the spammers (and not only for this), they do everything automatically
without waiting for each topic to be approved

look here

Thanks Alex.
Italian has been updated.
I JUST added the Sortables Captcha and made it FNP related.
My Q&A captcha helped but I was concerned non-English speaking users might have a problem. "A dog is chasing a cat, who is ahead in the race?"
Spamming HAS gone down to zero..for the moment..
Thanks,
