Message Boards upgraded to version 3.0.4

Post by Ali Abou-Zeid » 13 Mar 2009, 17:59

Some may have noticed a while ago that the boards were disabled for maintenance. I just upgraded to the latest version of phpBB3. Now we have the latest version 3.0.4.

This version fixes many security issues and bugs. For detailed information check the following link and scroll up.

When you are writing to post a message, if you look to the smiley menu you'll see that some are a little distorted. Or maybe that's just me?

Nope, it's not just you, it is me as well.

Some of them remind me of the Air Heads balloon.

It appears that the 'preview' image has had the dimensions slightly altered in the coding for some reason. No effect on when posting though.

Posted smilies appear all right. It's on the menu that they are distorted. But it's not really something to worry about. No complications of the Message Boards.

I think they're meant to be like that. Perhaps a new style?

NOW...they're a new style. When I first brought this up, those smilies looked pixelated.

Damn it. I don't like these smilies, expecially the laughing one.

I"d rather have all the smilies the same style if we're going to change them at all.
