Cleaning up the Forum

First... many thanks to FuB once again for sorting the technical challenges on the Forum and to the community for being patient. I've added FuB to the moderators list and given him admin rights so he can make any technical changes. I can see there are some 'political' challenges here. Arguments, wi...

Re: So, who wants a nice working forum then?

Yay. Many thanks to FuB for sorting this out, especially as I was beginning to look like a total cunt for not doing it.

All I can say is a) I'm stupid fucking busy at work, b) I've got three kids, c) I spend too much time on a plane.

Yeah, so the Board is fucked

I'm doing my best to sort it out. So what happened? My hosts insisted I upgrade from php 5.6 to 7 to save load on the server. This is good for the main site but not good for the forum. Turns out phpBB 3.1 which we were running isn't compatible with php 7, hence the brokenness of everything around he...

Re: Who broke Rant?

So that didn't work. Upgraded, broke everything.

I rolled back to 3.1.x and we'll try again tomorrow. Will probably need to do a 'clean' install, link to old database and update and then reinstall a compatible theme. Will save all images, etc. We'll get there.

Re: Who broke Rant?

Hey. Sorry for not fixing this yet. Been fucking bust. Will get it done on Sunday for sure. Little more complex than I hoped. Need to upgrade to phpBB 3.2. Might break the template then for different reasons.

Re: Who broke Rant?

Yeah, almost certainly fucked because my hosts upgraded to PHP7 on the server side and this template doesn't support it. Will try and upgrade this too. Sorry about the fuckery. Trying to flog a couple of nukes to the North Koreans. jong.kim.un@hotmail.kr not responding.

Re: Youth and reserves

Err........... Nice one? Come now Marlon. Calling him a fraud is harsh. He has done okay wherever he has been. Just seems like a streaky manager. Wins 10 on the bounce and then loses the next 10. Not a Utd manager but he has a place in the league. Fraud is the most overused word fucking hell It's l...
