New forums

Postby Janis Legzdinsh » 20 Sep 2004 09:41

I have switched forums software from YaBB to phpBB. It should work much faster than old forums and it will allow some new cool features such as comments to the news posts. I hope you will like it. Enjoy!

Ooooh! Phpbb!

Good choice :D

Custom user titles are gone, though

Also you could install the attachments mod so people can upload screenshots of bugs as well as crash logs or so.

Attachments mod is a good idea. I will do it later.

User titles also should be an another mod. ZDoom forums have them.

Hey great work Janis! :D Sorry for not having gotten around it myself though. :oops:

Regarding user titles, that's not a mod but a standard phpBB feature, you can set them from the admin panel by post count.

No, what you are talking about is rankings. User title is what you can edit in profile like it was in YaBB. ZDoom forums have custon titles and probably that's why they have disabled signatures.

I know that titles went to interests (I had to modify convertor in order to make it work).

Actually it's prety simple SQL query. Here's the file. Note that I'm using mysql_* functions directly. Feel free to play with it.
