phpbb 3.0.6

Post by thenktor » 1. Dec 2009, 15:02

I've just updated our forum software and I want to announce 2 new features:
1. Protection against spammer registrations should be improved by ReCaptcha.
2. The forum now offers an atom feed, so you can watch new announcements.

Problems found so far:
1. Topic notification mails are not sent in english. Seems to be a bug, so let's see if it can be solved the next days. Waiting for more infos in the phpbb forums.

The "active topics" link doesn't really work either: http://www.salixos.org/forum/search.php ... ive_topics

What exactly should it show? Never used it before. I guess most active topics in a certain time period?

I use it all the time. It should show a list of topics that have the most recent posts in the forum. Right now, it does nothing like that.

Fixed. Had to change some forum permissions.

Notification e-mail is in some language i can't understand. Before, the mails were in german just like my language setting in profile.
Γεια σας damNageHack,

Λάβατε αυτό το μήνυμα γιατί παρακολουθείτε το θέμα, "Wacom tablet" στο
"Salix OS". Αναρτήθηκε ένα νέο μήνυμα στο θέμα μετά την τελευταία σας
επίσκεψη. Δεν θα υπάρξει άλλη ειδοποίηση για αυτήν την ανάρτηση, μέχρι να
επισκεφτείτε την Θ. Ενότητα.

(...)
BTW. Is this greek?

Yes, it's greek and it's a known bug. This probably is a bug with the phpbb templates. It seems phpbb just uses the first used template for all languages instead of an own template for each language.

I think it's related to this problem: http://www.phpbb.com/bugs/phpbb3/54505

For now, a quick fix could be done by thenktor :
- set your preference language to "english",
- clear the template cache,
- ask another guy to answer on a topic you're wathcing,
- reset your preference language to "german"

This way, we'll get notification in english, which I think it's a bit better for most of people than greek :)
