Ugh! Upgrade = UGLY

Post by bahua »

The admin section has been hassling me to update to the latest non-deadly version of the forum's software for a couple months, and I've been putting it off, because it's always a big headache to do so. I updated it tonight, and now the default theme looks like a pair of 78-year-old testicles. I will have a look around for some themes.

I've installed a theme that looks slightly better, but making things beautiful is precisely not my speciality. I am quite receptive to any style suggestions anyone may have.

Don't sell yourself short, Bahua. You are both stylish and pretty.

Simultaneously ugly and easier for me to process visually.

Why is it so skinny on the iPhone?

If there's. Mobile theme setting or something, would be nice to have it on

How the heck do I switch themes? I can find nothing in the User CP. I hate phpbb upgrades. Gotta do it, but it always wrecks the theme.

I'll see if I can find a mobile theme and install it.

I blame the toy train for this. [insert racist non-sequitur here]

Can we have Laura's Theme? That's kind of pretty, too...

I've been getting 'domain expired' banner pages off and on this morning.

Well obviously not now, since you just posted.

The registrar for this domain is a bunch of scumbags. In a dozen or more nested iterations, they bought the company that bought the company that I used to register this domain back in 2005 or 2006. The domain expired this morning, and instead of emailing me about it, they just disabled the account. It's all sorted out now, and wheels are turning to get it transferred to hover.

Gave me a great laugh when I saw expired domain this morning. Just knew that bahua was cussing.

Doesn't take much to make my day........

Not able to login with Chrome on Windows or Linux. Firefox login fine. Chrome on Android works fine too. Anyone else seeing this?

edit: Login works with Chrome Incognito mode so it may be an extension but there was no problem with older version of board.

It must be an extension I'm using, though I haven't added any new ones since board was upgraded.
