Yeah, it appears that doc code just won't work with the new phpBB 3.2. Disappointing, but oh well. I will explore alternatives.

What it comes down to is a big change in the way BBCodes are parsed by the system in phpBB 3.2. While you can have BBCodes nested in BBCodes like

Code: Select all

[b][strike]Some Text[/strike][/b]
You can't have a BBCode that uses text entered by a user as a part of the code, and have any BBCodes entered by the user as a part of that text. That won't, and can't, work with phpBB 3.2.

That makes the Doc and Back BBCodes we had recently created pretty much useless, and I have removed them from the edit panel.

Rainmeter finally catching along with the time, damn new style looks awesome. Now you just need to fix the logo on the main home page and the whole product will look aesthetically pleasing (for everyone, first time peeps and long time people).

The old style is dead!!!

Time to Stylus a dark mode since I can't find it anywhere in the settings.

You can try the NegativeScreen program for night viewing. :Whistle

It is not a perfect solution, but until a dark theme is introduced, it does offer some options. :17nodding

Yeah, the new theme and PHP update broke my dark theme greasemonkey script. Will have to play a little bit.

I would be interested in trying it if you can get the script working with the new forum! :)

It's not perfect, and I'm sure there's corners of the forum that I normally don't visit that may not be 100%, but it works well enough for me.

I just noticed a small issue with the new site style:

On previous style pieces of Snippets could have been colored (using the Color tags). Now this isn't possible anymore.
For example the middle of following string is colored as it should have to: Snippet. But if I include it into a Snippet: Snippet.
I used many times this feature, coloring the modified parts of Snippets, to highlight them. My question is if this feature could be added back?

Thanks

Unfortunately, it appears not. This is not an issue with the new style, but rather a fundamental change in the way BBCodes are parsed in the new 3.2 version of the underlying phpBB software. They are aware of the issue, but show no interest in changing it. We will dig in a bit deeper and let you know what we find out.

I think we are on to something...

Snippet

Code: Select all

Looks like we had to tweak the html being replaced.

Snippet should be working now.

PS - If you posted something in the meantime that did not work, you can go back and edit the post and change some text around, and it should work.
