It was finally time for another forum upgrade. Not only did a lot of spammers find they way in (I just hate ’em) but the forum software itself had seen a lot of updates in the meantime.
So first, I spend a few hours and rocket fuel cans on removing the spammers and their posts. Then, I attacked the upgrade to the newest release of phpBB. A fine team of developers I must say. It went fairly well and after I tested the whole procedure locally, I did the same thing online.
This time though I did not put too much effort into a custom design. I found a great theme by Arty that comes close enough to what we had before, even though it is not as colorful. But it has great features, works well and fast and is now responsive too. That is a nice touch I must say.
So, I hope you enjoy the new forum.
