Re: punbb transfer

Great work guys big_smile

Really love the new design and snappiness. And from what I read in this thread so do the others smile
About that bug above, get it to. ( Win32, Opera 9.10 )

Other than that, I have not seen any flaws yet.

nice, clean and fast! great work guys!

oh, and i think i found a bug or something hmm. if you look at this topic http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=28834, after the 9th post the "windows" are different sizes and the font is bigger. i don't know if this is just on my computer or the problem is on the server. here is the pic if nobody else sees it: http://img166.imageshack.us/img166/8758/forumjo8.th.png

PhpBB, for whatever reason, didnt check to make sure all the quote tags came in pairs, and the conversion process didn't either, so the formatting was messed up. I silently edited the post that was messed up to fix the tag.

If you see any  more of those, go ahead and hit report and specify it in the reason, there shouldn't be too many of them around.

Re: punbb transfer

This is great, I can read the forums A LOT faster now; even on dial-up.  I greatly appreciate the new feature that allows me to hide images, (in all three locations, if I so choose.)  It's very nice... goodbye temporary use of ImageLikeOpera.

One thing I do miss, is a forum by forum option to "Mark all topics as read".  One other thing; actually I'm not sure if the old forum had it, but I know another phpBB forum I used to frequent had it; but it's a preview option on the quick reply.  I think it would be real nice if it would have one. 

Also, the forum is slightly more readable in elinks (the threads.  navigation is a little tight, but manageable.)

Re: punbb transfer

Nice and smooth move.

Is it possible to have more than "recent posts" links? Does this link show last 24h or only posts from today?
The links to view last 24h, 48h etc. were quite useful sometimes.

Re: punbb transfer

hmmm, everything seems kinda ass-backwards with this setup.  Recent posts require multiple clicks, index forums at the bottom.  Maybe a switch to phpbb would have been wiser..... 


I dunknow, I know it'll take time to adjust, but I think there's a reason I run a forum and have never heard of punbb. Not complaining, just stating an opinion here.




In either case, it's no doubt more responsive than before.

Re: punbb transfer

We were thinking about a switch to phpBB but thought it would be too much of a hassle for the transfer. Maybe next time.

We didn't switched to phpbb because that what we were using. The forum software move was from phpbb to punbb. wink

Re: punbb transfer

I like the new look, very clean and responsive. I think the "new posts" link by each individual forum post is an added feature. In any event, it's very convenient. I know it's been mentioned before, but, a quick search box would be nice. A smooth transition, impressive.

Hmmmmmmmmm I swore the old software was vBulletin, I must have been on crack.  I need to stop that stuff big_smile haha  In either case, yeah.  The changes are nice, faster, and went smoothly, but I don't know if punbb is really setup with the end user in mind.  Certain things seem hidden or a pain to access, just the general deisign of things I think needs some improvement, then again that's just an end user's opinion big_smile  From one forum admin to a group of admins smile

Re: punbb transfer

Ahh, my avatar shrunk, now you can't see my Arch customized license plate… smile

Overall I like the new forums! I really like the new look! cool

But…:(

Am I doing something wrong,  [ New Posts ] works, but once I've read the new posts, it stays new.  I can scan all the way through the forums from top to bottom, but when I start back at the top, they are all still the same as when I started, new posts or not. (That is, new posts or not on the ones already marked as new.)

Is there any way to mark a thread as read, so that I can tell if it really does get some new posts or not?

I realize I can log out and back in, but then I loose even the new posts that I don't know are there because I can't tell which threads have new posts or not now.

Thanks for your help!

Note: I've refreshed the page and even tried different browsers (Opera, Firefox, Konqueror, IE) just to make sure.

Re: punbb transfer

I just noticed that if you use the [ code ] tags it'll slap on a bunch of empty rows at the bottom, is there anyway to get rid of those?

Also the font size is way too big in code boxes, at least for me.

Read flagging is now time-based. There's a link to  mark all posts as read. Read the link cactus posted in this thread for more info.

Ok, sounds good.  Having the read flagging time-based just doesn't seam very practical for forums as active as Archlinux is.  But after reading the post noted by cactus, punBB looks like it's a lot easier to modify and patch then phpBB was.  So I'll work with it the way it is, and look forward to it maturing even more.

Thank Snowman for point it out.

Either way I can't respect the opinion of anyone who would recommend/suggest phpbb.  Anyone that runs a forum knows that phpbb is fundamentally rubbish, even the people who make it.  That's why phpbb3 is a total re-write smile

I don't know, I've been using phpBB successfully for over 4 years now...on many different forums.

Don't think punbb is perfect, it isn't, and it lacks many features that I prefer to use.  Until very recently punbb was developed by pretty much just one person.  He has made some mistakes, but in his defense, he owns up to them.  Recently he opened up punbb to more developers, 6 or 7 i think, phpbb has many more people that scrutinize the codebase.  phpBB is a very widely used gpl'd forum software, so it gets the most publicity.  You also have more people writing automated attack scripts for it, but that is easy enough to overcome.

phpBB is scaleable and modifiable ....... The largest phpBB forum I know of is:

So I wouldn't say phpBB is total crap wink

A pain to update ---- yes, unusable... definately not, It works fine for my forums, and I don't think i'm a total idiot....
