Forum woes

Postby Brianna Sollandry » Wed Aug 08, 2007 8:33 pm

We had a serious problem earlier today: apparently one of the database tables was dropped.

I struggled for a while and decided to take the opportunity to upgrade to the latest stable version of the phpbb software.

I have done so, but have not installed any of the "mods" I had before: the spelling checker, the Attach mod, or the Delete User mod (useful only for me to easily delete spam registrations).

I also have reverted everybody's "style" from Artemis to "subSilver". I DO have Artemis installed, but it might not be completely compatible with this version of the forum software. Switch back at your own risk.

This was a painful experience, so I'm going to take a break before re-installing the necessary mods. Don't worry: previous attachments are still on the server. They'll reappear when I reinstall the mod.

And....ooh! I just found a "keep unread" mod which will leave messages marked unread until you actually read them. Who'd have thought?

I was gonna ask where my pretty version of the forums had went. Now I know :)
