Software/forum update within the next weeks

Post #1 by Holger » Wed Jul 29, 2015 2:13 pm

Hello dear friends!

As we are closing in to 100,000 high quality posts we have decided to celebrate with an upgrade to the newest version of the forum software phpBB.
The conversion and testing will take place within the next four weeks. As soon as we have finished the testing-phase we will go live with the new version.

phpBB 3.1 is optimized for both desktop and mobile devices (responsive design) and it is very user friendly, with a modern look.
We will make sure that the image-uploading in posts is easy and fast.

So stay tuned! :wave:

Hello All,

I want to share the progress with you.
The update is running smoothly, we are right now in the process of customizing the test forum.

The image upload is VERY easy in the new software. Just drag&drop the photos to the message area and they will be attached automatically.
We will also add second way to upload photos by clicking and choosing (as before).

The design is responsive, that means it is mobile-device-friendly.

Here are some screenshots of what it will look like
