RE: Board Migration - Discussion
Good job! Don't suppose there's a theme option to allow names over at the left? I note that with MyBB, everything including the username is at the right, which means browsing posts by constantly having to look at the right (to see who posted) then the left (to read the content), which is a bit jarring. Tried turning off Classic mode, but that shifts everything including the avatar to the top (so posts become ginormous).

Only quibble so far Smile

No not at the moment with the default theme. I wanted to make things a bit more like home (PHPBB)
Such a feature may come in the future but until MyBB 2.0 I really want to hold off on any custom theme work.

RE: Board Migration - Discussion
Just a quick question.. why have I got Warning Level:0% under my details? What does this mean?

MyBB implements a warning system. 0% means that you haven't been warned.

Still having some problems. I reuploaded my avatar in GIF and PNG format but not showing in posts.

And I'm missing the 'Mark all forums read' button.

Nice to have the forums back!!! Great job!!!

I am able to see your avatar, Titox. What's interesting with avatars currently is that there size seems to determine the space used for the user info part of a post. See e.g. vishnu's post in https://forums.irix.cc/thread-5-page-5.html EDIT: or just this thread as I just recognize.

The "Mark all forums read" button is now a link at the bottom of the board.

BTW the "Quote" link below a post doesn't work for me, but as the "Reply" button quotes the previous message automatically, I can live with that.

EDIT: The "Lite (Archive) Mode" link at the bottom - not sure what it is for - yields a 404.
EDIT: Oh, it yields a page at the root of the board. But the links there again yield 404s. I think this mode could be useful for CLI browsing.

RE: Board Migration - Discussion
Yeah as I said MyBB has some interesting aspects to its default theme. I hacked around with it to try and make it more phpbb like, because going back isn't an option.

Quotes are different. You put them into a stack when you hit quote and then at the bottom of the page is a button to unload the stack into thr reply box

Some users have issues with their avatars yes, this will be fixed eventually with a image/file storage feature that will be used instead of storing avatars and attachments locally, this server doesnt have a lot of disk space and files are constantly being written with dangerous (777 perms). This was an issue on phpbb, I have to rewrite and rebuild some crons
