So I'm back after a few days (although I've been around during the beginning of the migration itself).

Guess that I'm on the "other side" now! Question is which kind: New hosting, new year, anything else?

Either way, thanks to Fleexy for agreeing to take over the thing, and thanks again to adurdin for his long period of involvement.

I just corrected links in post bodies from pckf.com to our current domain, both here and on KM. Since the conversion permanently messed up some characters here, I did the SQL equivalent of a find-and-replace in the posts table, changing the most common butchered characters into their correct form. Let me know if I missed anything.

Also, it looks like there's a new version of phpBB with some useful new features, so we might look into getting on that soon.

That update looks generally useful. If any of us can help somehow (maybe even by designing a new colour theme if nobody is working on that already) then let us know :)

I could try making a theme, if there's a template or garg. I mean I dunno how you make skins for this.

I just noticed I lost all messages that were before 2013... And there are no happy and unhappy emoticons to the left, when I'm writing this.

just to get the ball rolling.
a very simple five minute put together CSS proposal for keenmodding.org. (some competition? why not! I'm looking forward to see some alternative suggestions)
for those who are unfamiliar with this: the easiest way to test this out is via an addon called stylish. (get it for firefox, or for google chrome / vivaldi.)

You can get the style here: userstyles.org/styles/137503/keenmodding-org

alternative use the CSS source:

Code: Select all

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
@-moz-document domain("keenmodding.org") {
/* phpBB 3.x prosilver -- keenmodding.org 
Changes:
* Profiles on left side 
* New Background 
* Little Logo */
.postbody {
    float: right !important;
    border-left: 1px solid #fff!important;
    padding-left: 10px !important
}
.postprofile {
    float: left !important;
    border-left: none !important;
    width: 180px !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.online {
    background-position: 140px 0 !important;
}
body {
    background: repeat fixed url("https://s19.postimg.org/fs7ukw56r/keen_modding_background_white.png") !important;
}
.imageset.site_logo {
    background: none !important;
}
#site-description > a {
    background-image: url("https://s19.postimg.org/9qeyvv7b7/Foot.gif");
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    /*background-size: contain;*/
    display: block;
    margin-left: 10px;
    /*height: 72px !important;
    width: 85px !important;*/
}
}

Very good work Fleexy, the new board works brilliant, but it's definitely in the need of a modern and fitting design :)

Oh wow, this place looks neat. Kudos for the migration!

There are a couple of small-but-handy things I miss, though; namely, a quick reply box at the bottom of a thread and a "view new posts since last visit" link/button at the top right next to the notifications*/private messages links.

*What's this button do?

Both PCKF and KM are now updated to phpBB 3.2. Now that I don't have to worry about a new forum version breaking our styles, I'll look into restoring the Keenishness. Thanks to everyone who volunteered and submitted CSS fragments! As always, let me know if anything is broken, optimally after trying a hard reload in your browser (Ctrl+F5).

Everything works fine now. That was a close call:

Ah. I thought that was just me.

Thankfully ctrl-F5 fixed it.

The problem was (and still is for others!) to get to this topic to find out about the Ctrl + F5...

Ctrl + F5 (or Command R for Mac) didn't work for me, but going into Chrome's History and clearing cached images and files did the trick. Some people are probably going to think the forums are broken and wait for a fix though...

Things are... very different. Something like ten-plus years of eye memory for where things are and how things "should" look are going to take some time to overcome!

Another round of thanks to Andy Durdin for hosting our creative energies for so many years, and a big huzzah to Fleexy for taking over hosting duties! :) I'm looking forward to whatever CSS overhaul comes along.
