Re: PunBB+

thanks koos for making this big update! Since you were supporting the 1.2.x branch. I was thinking that i will be going back to this path instead of going forward to version 1.5.x since flux will be moving to version 2 anyway using the lavarel framework and 1.5.x will not be maintained except for security fixes.

Currently i have boards running in fluxbb 1.2.24 and fluxbb 1.4.x, is still be possible to update it to 1.2.50?

What is the difference of this version to fluxbb 1.5.x?

Thanks

Re: PunBB+

You can quite easily update from FluxBB 1.2.24. If you haven't got any mods installed, just follow the upgrade instructions in the included documentation of PunBB+. If you have modified some files, you can make use of the fluxbb-1.2.24 to punbb-1.2.50 patch file found in the patch directory of the Download archive.

Converting from FluxBB 1.4.x would be a bit more tricky. I might create a migration tool later on.

The main difference is that FluxBB 1.5 includes UTF-8 support and a couple of added features. You can see the FluxBB feature list page for a comparison between the 1.2 and 1.5 branch. PunBB+ however includes the "Read topic tracking" feature, but makes use of a database based system (which I prefer) instead of the cookie based system FluxBB uses.

thanks koos, i was able to update my 1.2.24 board to 1.2.50. Is there a plan to support UTF8 in future updates?

Re: PunBB+

No, however the Russian version of PunBB+ includes some form of UTF-8 support.

Re: PunBB+

Hi Koos,

MSN Messenger was retire by Microsoft last April 2013 and move it to Skype... It is possible to update the messenger section in profile.php to replace the MSN Messenger to Skype Messenger in PunBB+? I know its easy to rename it in language file but i was also referring to the database table.

Microsoft announcement:

Re: PunBB+

I am very reluctant to make any changes to the database. Maybe I will just update the language file entry in the next update.
