Forum Upgrade

Postby Erwin Denissen » Mon Nov 17, 2008 8:55 am

Today we start to upgrade the forum from phpbb 2 to phpbb 3. Expect downtime of the forum while we are converting the database to the new version. Sorry for any inconvenience. We expect it's worth the downtime, as the latest release has more features.

I think I have fixed most of the missing images in old posts now.

The new feature to upload attachments to add to posts is a great enhancement. The best format to use for Screenshots of text and dialogue boxes is PNG rather than JPG. It is best to crop images to fit the width of the forum.

Clicking on an inline image will remove the inline frame's scroll bars to show the full height of the image.

Is there any limitation on the types of attachments that can be uploaded and their file sizes?

Apparently not all.

I was not realling surprised about HTML or SVG, but I expected TXT, PDF, and WMF to be allowed.

phpBB 3 has way too many settings :) I've discovered how to enable text documents, so they should now also be allowed.
