Thumbs up is actually better than the old up/down! It created a spiral of negativity and I feel like I'm enough of that for the whole forum.
I am with you.... but no one has created that MOD.

So I just decided to use this MOD for now... I just updated the language to say "Like" instead of "Thanks"
Thanks/like/up, whatever it is it's all the same IMO, or at least that's how users would utilize it.

I tried it. It asks if you want to remove your “like”. The little blurb under the post that says you liked it then disappears.

There is also a master list showing the likes... You can find it in the "Quick Links" menu right next to the FAQ.

Direct link: thankslist

EDIT: There is a list that shows the topics that have the most likes too in the same menu,
Direct link: toplist

I'm not defending Dubnyk, not at all. But why can't this offense smell blood in the water and put one in on Schneider (no wins this year this far) and make it a no doubter...

Given Dubs play lately, it probably still would've been close. But a quick goal on the replacement probably ends any Devil's push.
This was the 900,000th post on GPL.... Slowly moving towards 1millions total posts!
Currently at 909700 or so...
I suggest a post-counter until the monumental occasion is passed. Not I'm not joking.
Quotes are from the Wild Thread where post 900,000 happened.

I created a script that keeps track of how close we are getting to post 1mil. You can see that live here:


Nothing special. Just text right now. I would like to integrate it on the Portal page eventually. But first I just wanted to be able to get a real number that is always up to date. We are probably still about a year away from reaching 1 million.


Edit: Now showing on the Portal page.

I figure out how to get it on the Portal page. Simple, but it looks good.

Edit: The data will get cached at times... So it won't show updates all the time. But it will at least stay updated enough for us to keep an eye on.

I have noticed one issue....

If you login on the User Menu area on the left side of the Portal page, it may bark at you for some type of invalid blah blah blah. You can login right after that without a problem. I do not think I can do much with that right now since the Portal MOD is very old and I am just glad it works at all. So I can live with that.

@Jupiter
When I post it routes me to a page saying it cannot provide a secure connection. Then I go back and refresh the page and see my post is there.
Not sure if it's just happening to me or not.

Edit: nevermind. Now it's posting just fine.

I was messing with the cookie settings a few minutes ago. I think it was the reason you may have been having problems (I HOPE) Because I was also having problems. I put the setting back the way they were. Let me know if you have the same problem again.

We have been using the phpBB message board since day one in 2003. I used it because was free and because there was a little installer button provided by the host of my family website. It may not be the best forum software, but it is hard to argue with “free”.

I took a look this morning and I realized that we have been through 52 versions of the software. 4 major versions. It’s been a pain at times, but overall it’s been pretty good.

Here are all the versions we have been through.

2.0.4 - 2.0.23 = 20
3.0.0 - 3.0.12 = 13
3.1.0 - 3.1.10 = 11
3.2.0 - 3.2.7 = 8

Hey Jup,
I just noticed that I have two PMs sitting in my Outbox that have not been sent. How do I get them to send? I don't want Hammy to think I'm ignoring him!

Thanks!

That just means they have not read the message. So it hasn’t been delivered. It is in his inbox.

Random thing:
I don't have GPL set to auto-login at work. For the last couple weeks, every time I've gone to log in (from the portal page), it gives me an error of sorts (like I entered the wrong password or something) and brings me to that 2nd screen which then my login works.

I have the same issue but if you look about five posts back Jup explains what is going on. Just an annoyance now that we'll have to live with.

I agree it's likely the browser, not the site, as you said, any site can occasionally lose the logon token and need it again.

Yeah me too...but I think it is Chrome cause it happens with other sites as well.
Probably obvious to most everyone smarter than me, but I find whenever I "Clear browser data" under Chrome I'll need to log into every site that requires a User Name and Password.
That'll happen

I’ve changed nothing, and not had this issue before but GPL keeps logging me out every minute or so. My WiFi isn’t going out that I’m aware. WTF?

Does the bottom right corner “GPL twitter feed” come up extra large so you have to scroll back and forth to see it all for anyone else? I don’t remember it being like that and no matter which way I orient my phone I can only see a fraction of that column.

Yes... That is something that started happening on mobile in the last few months. I am actually thinking about removing the Twitter from the portal page. I would then most likely move it to its own page.

Apparently there is something going on with just iOS that is causing this problem. Even when I created a separate page for Twitter, the problem still occurs on iOS. As of right now there is no "real" fix without adding a bunch of code that I do not want to do right now.

Edit: I found a fix that works on WordPress, but not this PHPBB message board portal page. So I will work to remove Twitter from the Portal page and on to it's own page.

Do to some goofy behavior with the Twitter feeds on the Portal page on iOS, I have removed that Twitter column from the Portal page and have given Twitter its own page on the site. One that will work on iOS better since over 50% of the usage on GPL is from iOS.

You can find the Twitter page up in the Main menu up top, or directly here:

Oh I know... I am guessing that the 4.6% are those that hit up GPL at work and have no choice on their browser.

I did like having the Twitter feed on the right side because I missed some things from time to time on there. But I do like how the portal page looks now on my laptop and works good on my iPhone too.

Thumbs up is actually better than the old up/down! It created a spiral of negativity and I feel like I'm enough of that for the whole forum.
Negativity? On a message board?

I see that a lot of sites offer “dark mode”....

I am thinking about adding that to the message board. Would there be any interest in that?

I may work on it in the new few weeks. Then just put in a “theme selector” so you can switch whenever you wish.
