HELP!

I have been trying to upgrade wih no sucess. Keep getting errors and tried all suggested corrections with no success.

This has gone on for way too long. Need to fix this asap.
Can anyone help get this fixed?

Thanks.
Stephanie

Attention everyone:

Time to finally upgrade...

I have blocked new signups because we were overwhelmed with spam registrations. 1000's from Russia and China. Currrent mods did not work to stop them.

With the new EP and tour, we will be upgrading the forum in the next few days. Have backup of everything so hopefully the upgrade will go smoothly. Also have to do a major deletion of inactive users.

After the transition, we might just use a generic theme until Incubus themes can be redone. Our current themes will not work without revisions.

We need help designing the new themes. Any volunteers?

I will notify everyone with a date to start the conversion.

Thanks.

Stephanie

By designing, do you mean actually writing CSS/HTML? I'd be interested to lend a hand.

I can do that. I've always wanted to (even though I consider the crow design very cool). I almost can't code but I can fully design skins.

The white default template will do. Add this image to the header and it's golden.

I could use help redoing the current themes to work with PHPbb 3.1 and also redesigning theme graphics to Incubus related for the new EP's etc.

Here's a link to the current theme choices on the PHPbb pages (an example)...

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/0mega/demo/3.0

Here are a few that are nice but the choice is up to you.

1. Cerulean
2. Omega
3. KS Serious
4. Legacy
5. SE Circle

Lots more free themes everywhere...
http://www.phpbb3styles.net/

And a tutorial...
https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/phpbb/phpbb_templates.htm

Will make current themes available to download for whoever wants to work on fixing these current styles.

Just PM me if you have any questions or need clarification.

PHPbb Styles page

Please PM me when you decide what style you are going to use. Or if you would like to redo one of the old styles. Or just post here.

Thanks.

Stephanie

I think the Omega Theme is the best one. We just need some nice headers (one for each album/era, maybe?) and that's it!

I could help out with that, once you've decided which theme the boards will use.

I kind of agree... that Omega Theme is easy on the eyes, and an image with albums in consecutive order would be nice for a header as well.

Umm... I kind of like a white background for a change. Alpha looks nice (and coincidentally the white version of Omega):

With all due respect, it was pretty relentless and we did try a few things. I truly had no idea we could even block those IP's or put other measures in place with the current permissions we have. I think the current move is great, and that the main website/board has gotten ridiculously stale. We were lucky to have any signups at all with the way it looks at face value vs. HQ

Help!! I have been trying to convert for several days. Keep getting 500 errors when I reach Step 17 of 29. Errors out on posts table at approx. 300,000. Looked up "fixes" on PHPBB support. Tried but still getting errors. Tried looking at posts table for long characers. Nothing.

If anyone can help with the conversion, I would appreciate it. Almost bald from tearing my hair out. Argh!!!

Thanks.

I wish I could help, but I don't know what step 17 entails.

https://www.phpbb.com/community/docs/INSTALL.html

Quote:
5.iv. Common conversion problems

http 500 / white pages The conversion is a load-heavy procedure. Restrictions imposed by some server hosting providers can cause problems. The most common causes are: values too low for the PHP settings memory_limit and max_execution_time. Limits on the allowed CPU time are also a frequent cause for such errors, as are limits on the number of database queries allowed. If you cannot change such settings, then contact your hosting provider or run the conversion procedure on a different computer. The phpBB.com forums are also an excellent location to ask for support.


Try changing those values. If that doesn't work then try downloading the database backup and doing the conversion locally.

phpBB conversions are always very tricky.

Feel free to let me know if you want me to have a look at it, I have been doing that quite a lot of time in the past.

I'm reading through some stuff, and my try my hand at recreating the ACLOTM theme for the updated board, as it is far and away my favorite theme.
