new forum software

Postby luit » Wed 18 Feb 2015, 12:36

As many of you may have noticed we upgraded the forum to the latest phpbb software.
Because it looked very standard after the upgrade I quickly took a picture of some of my eurocoins to create a banner to make it look better.
Maybe someone of you is very creative and can make a much nicer banner. Everybody is welcome to make suggestions and maybe we can make a poll to choose one...
At the moment we are trying to find out possibilities to completely integrate the goodswapper list and recommendations in the forum itself, so you can see the number of recommendations in the user profile an possible together with every posting of a member.
Also preventing users from using "for sale" depending on number of recommendations is possible at that moment.

In the new forum software there are also possibilities to fill in accounts of social media, please take a moment to complete your profile, as it will make the possibilities for a list of good swappers better, don't forget to fill in location, because that will make conversion of the old list to the new system easier.

As soon as the national flag extension for the new version is available, we will implement that.

I think most of you now that http://www.euroswapper.info and http://www.euroswapper.eu are the official domains of the forum.
When you still use http://www.euroswapper.tk, please change that to one of the above.

Suggestions and tips how to make the forum better are welcome.

Luit

Thierry,
The 'national flag' extention I talked about in the previous posting does this amongst others, but is not yet available for the new software.
I hope this will be available soon.
The way you do it is an alternative of course.

The current banner is 1150x250
The 1150 is maximum width, the 250 can be (a bit) more or less.
