Forum error messages

Post by Henrik » Tue Jul 23, 2019 8:54 pm

My webhost have upgraded the php version and this must what is causing the error messages. I haven’t updated the phpBB installation in a long time. I keep my fingers crossed that this will fix things...

In any case, this will take a while.

I can't see certain posts unless I quote them, but that doesn't work for images (for example, I can't see who finished #2 and #1 in the artist poll).

I had problems with the phpBB installation update. I replaced a file (although I don't understand why that worked) and now it looks like the forum works again. There might be some problems still though. If you find anything else than wrong colours or other style changes, then please report them here while I am going to sleep...

It may be that they've always looked like this and I'm just noticing this now, but the icons to the left of topic titles look very fuzzy.

There’s a phpBB logo on the top left corner on the forum page, which i’m a hundred percent sure was never there. Also the main colors on this page have turned to a lighter shade of blue, kinda like cotton candy. Also, it looks like pinned topics are just grouped with every other topic in the music, music, music thread.

Yes, I hope this could be fixed. If not I would need to do a lot of editing... :angry-banghead:

I'm sorry, but I have no idea what's wrong. I have tried to create a new bbcode that does the same thing, but with no luck. Also, you're supposed to be able to do the same thing with the img tag, like this:

Code: Select all

[img=100x100]Link to image[/img]
but that doesn't work either.

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!

The way I see it, after the new phpbb installation update, image resizing somehow doesn't seem to be supported anymore. I can't figure out why. I've googled for answers but no one else seem to have this problem.

I think I got it now. It looks like the problem is a blank space.

This bbcode doesn't work anymore

Code: Select all

[imgsize 100x100]ImageURL[/imgsize]
But this one does

Code: Select all

[imgsize=100x100]ImageURL[/imgsize]
My guess is that the equal sign has always been the proper way to do it, but there was an automatic converter from blank space to an equal sign, that doesn't exist anymore.

Does anyone have a better solution than that eveyone go back and edit their posts, replacing " " with "=", as in the codes above?

I’m done for now with the cosmetic changes (colours and stuff), but let me know if you see anything that looks bad or weird.

Replacing blank space with equal works but it's a lot of editing to do...

I've begun to edit the Books... thread. Little by little I will try to edit all my previous posts (I use a lot the imgsize feature).

I'm so sorry that you have to go through this. I think you are affected more than anyone else.
