Re: Bug is less,

If you've got a perfectly good working phpBB2 forum I don't see what the urgency is. In my case, the urgency lies in the fact that I have put a "code freeze" into effect some while ago for my phpBB2 board (which I quite regularly modify myself and using third party MODs). And right now, the things ...

Re: the right procedure when RC1 is out (migration from phpBB2)

My update plan includes the following steps: take the old forum offline. Set up a "we're offline"-page (including some interactive goodies if you must). Shove a .htaccess in place which redirects everybody but myself (i.e. my IP) to the offline page. And then, the fun begins - backup, phpBB3 install...

Re: Question about generate_text_for_display

I doubt that generate_text_for_display is to blame here — I'd guess something's screwed up with the font encodings. What headers does your news page (if I understand it correctly, you're displaying phpBB text on a separate news page, right?) generate? If that page does not announce UTF-8, generate_t...

Re: Still wondering why some things haven't happened...

Hey guys... was wondering if someone could fill me in on which/what two files would need to be dropped into the the forum root to add the RSS feature to my forum? What I did was basically patch the existing RSS mods for phpBB2 up to Olympus. Since that was not too much work, I guess that it will no...

Re: Still wondering why some things haven't happened...

8O What's syndication to do with AJAX? Nothing at all - but for the fact that both are not on Olympus' feature list. Besides, RSS is a feature which can be added to phpBB (both 2+3) by just dropping one or two files into the forum root, without any further modifications. So, if you're really despara...

Re: Templating: Switch indicating new PMs

In other words: I'm lost? ;)

No, what I'm trying to do is display a button linking to the inbox, which changes color if there are unread or new PMs. That's why...

That's the problem. That flag is true only if there are messages in the state "unread", not "new". They become unread only if you visit the inbox...

Wow, thanks a million... (is there a list somewhere where you can look for these, btw.?)

/Edit: Uh, hold it... this is only set once. If you're moving to another forum page, it is no longer set... :(

Templating: Switch indicating new PMs

Hi all, did not find anything with the search, so I'd rather ask since I'm afraid I'm just too blind to see it: is there any switch with which you can detect the presence of new PMs? There is one for unread PMs, i.e. <!-- IF PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO_UNREAD, but I am a bit lost since that evaluates to so...
