After years and years, I've finally upgraded the forum on Pete's QB Site to the current version of PHPBB3. People have been complaining about various login issues and glitches for years...hopefully this will solve the problem. I'm also hoping this will be more secure and prevent any and all spambots from infiltrating the forum.A few things:
*The URL of the forum is now: http://petesqbsite.com/phpBB3
*The old ARCHIVED / READ ONLY forum is still up at: http://petesqbsite.com/forum
This is so that any old web links pointing to the forum will still work...but nobody should be able to post anything new there. Ultimately, I might write some .htaccess redirect rules to just automatically send old links to the current forum.
*All of the old posts and user accounts have been transitioned over, and everything should be here. If something is missing or seems messed up, please post in the comments below.
*The default theme is based on the old "SubSilver" theme that we were using for years on the forums. I don't think it's the best looking theme out there, but it does the job and should match with any styling / posts people put up in the past.
The good news is if you don't like this theme, PHPBB3 supports personal themes. You can log in and set your own theme that only you will see (when logged in). There are currently three very basic themes installed, but I'm happy to install more.
If there's a theme you'd like me to install, please post in the comments below. There are dozens of free themes available at: http://www.phpbb3styles.net
(among other sites) and I'm happy to install a few more.
Let me know what you think!
