Just a Few Questions...

Post by GPHemsley »

Hello... I'm loving phpBB2.2, with all the new features you have, but I have a few questions.... I know you said that no support is given, but I'm not sure if this is support.. :?

1. On the CVS screenshot of May 2, 2003, the templates don't show with the subSilver colors like this one does... Any idea why?
2. The attachments don't appear.. Is this supposed to be, as of now?
3. There is no link to the Admin Panel on any of the pages... (Although you can get in through the now-changed /adm/ folder....)
4. Why can't you edit posts here?
5. What happened to the Triplex font on the buttons?
4. There was something else, something nowhere near support-related, that I wanted to ask... Now I can't remember.... Maybe it was the font question? Oh well...I'll come back if I remember... In the meantime, can you please answer these? :D Thank you. :wink:

That solved/answered questions 1-4. I'm still looking for the answer to number 5 and the second number 4, which should be number 6. ;)

Woah... triple post... :roll: That's because you can't edit....
I just realized that it actually didn't answer question number 4.... Still looking for the answers to the following questions:
4. Why can't you edit posts here?
5. What happened to the Triplex font on the buttons?
6. There was something else, something nowhere near support-related, that I wanted to ask... Now I can't remember.... Maybe it was the font question? Oh well...I'll come back if I remember... In the meantime, can you please answer these? :D Thank you. :wink:

4. I think you may have a 5 minute window to edit your posts, but that's not verified.
5. Triplex is a pay font, so they changed the standard button font to Arial.
6. Yes.

Hi,

Are all the translated image sets going to be re-done then?
Ignore the voices, they will get bored eventually...

Hey Daz... I would guess that they are... But that's a problem for you, isn't it? Well, then again... you "temporarily" closed your website, so maybe not....

Yes, all localisations will need to be re-done ... that was always on the cards anyway. The language files contain numerous new strings, the removal of existing strings, altered layouts, etc. The subSilver button images are unlikely to remain unchanged in their basic state and I took the decision a while ago to drop the use of Triplex on the "released" product.

Not to mention Triplex doesn't have a lot of foreign characters anyway, so in most cases the images used a different font. :D
