If you'd rather have the old forum appearance back...

Postby rick » Sat Jan 07, 2017 8:52 am

...here's a direct link to your control panel to change it back: http://www.southernairboat.com/phpBB3/ucp.php?i=165 (link only works if you're logged in)

You would need to select "subsilver2" for the "My board style" option, then click "Submit".

As of now, there is still no portal page. However, you can bookmark the active topics link, it'll be as close as we can get it for now.

After you make that selection, the forum will look like it did before the updates. When you log out, it will go back to the new style automatically, but anytime you're logged in, it will go back to the original style automatically.

Keep in mind, the new style is moblie friendly, but original style is not. However, you can go back & forth anytime you want to make the change described above.

If you have any problems making the change, or want me to do it for you, send me a PM: http://www.southernairboat.com/phpBB3/u ... ompose&u=2

Can't make heads or tails of this new thing. I'm glad there's a way to get the old style back. Thanks, Rick

Ya'll are all welcome.

I ain't exactly enjoying this new fangled stuff either lol. I'm doing my best to get it back as close as possible to what we had.

Hate to say it, but this ain't facebook or twitter with a team of internet gurus running things in the background; it's just me with my ass planted in this seat pushing buttons & drinking beer :D

Well, all I can say is that if doesn't double your overheard to keep everything running in parallel, that's a wonderful thing.

Having been in your position in the past, it is difficult for me bitch, piss and moan about the reality that you are faced with; especially given the monetary compensation you receive for doing what you do. :wink:

Not that it makes any difference, but I was under the impression the 'upgrade' was more hacking related than mobile device related. While it is an option, I will use the old format. I prefer it for a number of reasons, not the least of which the damned ads are easier to ignore in the side column than being page wide in the middle of everything else you're trying to read. Ironically, the older version runs faster as well.

The mobile crowd is fortunate that you are running the show and not some caveman such as myself who still perceives that phone is for making a phone call. :D I have computers that are far easier to see and use.

I will use the old format and thank-you again for making that an available option. :salute:

Site security & the ability to even function after the server gets updated are the reasons for the changes.

The mobile stuff, called responsive website design, is the default these days so I have no choice but to grin & bear it and try to learn how to work with it. Problem is though, that I don't learn as quick as I did when I was younger, so the outdated subsilver2 template is a work around to offer the forum as it used to look for now. It's no problem keeping it up on this end, but hopefully SA will have a responsive design with that appearance someday.

Also have a programmer looking into the photo gallery's "unrecoverable error", which was the result of the updated forum script. No guarantees at this point, but hopefully we can get that fixed.

Guess I better go check the beer cooler...I got more buttons to push today :)

Cody, you have it right in your control panel. You might need to refresh your web browser. If your browser is saving a copy of the site on your computer or device, the change would not take place immediately.
