Yes really well done Rick. Not just for the admirable work he does for us all but also for answering a M151 Tech related question for me WHILE slaving over a hot computer.
Thank you Rick.

OK, The good news is that the software upgrade is done. I am hoping that this will work out with the server upgrade. The bad news is that the OD theme we had is no longer available. Robert, the person who is the main guy responsible for making this all happen is going to work on getting us back to a color more in line with what we had, It will take a while since he is doing this in his spare time. Until that happens we are going to have to learn to live with the colors as they are.

I'm sure you're on it but the option to check for unread posts is a big thing for me. Just sayin'....

A lot of the shortcuts are missing on the header page, as is the header, we are working on it.

Here are the styles from PHP.com. I just recolored the base style for the MG42.us board and changed the graphics and icons.

If you are trying to get back to original as close as possible then it looks like old was just a modified version of the original phpbb prosilver. Not sure what version being used now but could use something like http://www.colorizeit.com/styles/phpbb- ... izeit.html to match colors to previous file website image or pull color values from that backup thumb drive I sent you sometime back Rick. Good luck.

That is exactly what Robert is doing I believe. He put in a modified Prosilver file and said he was going to work on it. Absolutely nothing from the old version is compatible with this version.
