PHPBBS upgrade to 3.2

Post by solarchat » Wed Jan 25, 2017 11:01 pm

In order to try and resolve the disappearing posts issue, we have upgraded the forum to the latest version of PHPBB 3.2. This is no easy task as any customizations from the previous version have to be rewritten and any modifications to fix earlier issues have to be reapplied.

Please notify me if there is anything missing. :)

YOU MUST CLEAR YOUR BROWSER CACHE COMPLETELY TO USE THE NEW FORUM.

There are thousands of files that now have different root paths on the site. If you are having any little weird issues, please clear the cache from your browser first before reporting them. This will probably fix them.

If you are unfamiliar with how to clear your browser cache, this site will help:

Thank you Stephen very much indeed for your help :) :bow2

If the first cache clearance doesn't work, do it a second time, this works :oops:
