A new version of the Łowcy Gier forum was launched last week. It was supposed to be a simple upgrade of the phpBB engine but it turned out to be a complicated and painful process. The problem was both the big jump between versions (from phpBB 3.0.x to phpBB 3.2.x – it could not be upgraded directly to the target version, we had to upgrade to phpBB 3.1.x first) and the number of plugins and modifications installed on the old forum that needed to be migrated (none of the old extensions was compatible with the new version of the forum engine, and most of it doesn’t have any compatible replacement) or at least clean their remains (plugins modified the database, which conflicted with new extensions). You can read more about the process here (Polish only).

After short beta-test, new version of Łowcy Gier has been released. Layout has been slightly refreshed and finally became responsive, so it looks decent on smaller devices. There is not much big changes in visual aspect of website – the content layout is similar and there are no revolutionary new features . The most radical changes affects backend and engine.

The redmine-a1-theme theme has been updated. New version improves compatibility with Redmine 4.0 and adjusts styles of form inputs.
The theme can be downloaded from GitHub. You can install/update it by extracting theme directory into
public/themes/ (final path to style sheet file should look like:
public/themes/a1/stylesheets/application.css) and enable it in Redmine admin panel. The theme is compatible with Redmine 4.0 (it should work with older versions of Redmine, but it was never verified).
Translations for Flarum are managed by language packs, which are simple extensions providing translations strings. Usually installing language pack is enough – your forum instance should be available in your favorite language. But what if you don’t like some translations? Or language pack does not support one of used extensions? Creating your own language pack just for your forum may be an overkill, especially if you don’t want to translate extensions and just want to see untranslated description instead of ugly placeholders.
