Welcome to the migrated Keen: Modding forum!

The migration was a success! For a complete status report, see the PCKF thread.

Thank you to adurdin for hosting us all these years!

Happy modding,

Fleexy

Quoting from the PCKF (*although* I posted less here, so it's maybe a bit less, erm, significant'):

So I'm back after a few days (although I've been around during the beginning of the migration itself).

Guess that I'm on the "other side" now! Question is which kind: New hosting, new year, anything else?

Either way, thanks to Fleexy for agreeing to take over the thing, and thanks again to adurdin for his long period of involvement.

just to get the ball rolling.
a very simple five minute put together CSS proposal for keenmodding.org.
for those who aren't familiar with this: the easiest way to test this out is via an addon called stylish. (get it for firefox, or for google chrome / vivaldi.)

You can get the style here: userstyles.org/styles/137503/keenmodding-org

alternative use the CSS source:

Code: Select all

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
@-moz-document domain("keenmodding.org") {
/* phpBB 3.x prosilver -- keenmodding.org 
Changes:
* Profiles on left side 
* New Background 
* Little Logo */
.postbody {
    float: right !important;
    border-left: 1px solid #fff!important;
    padding-left: 10px !important
}
.postprofile {
    float: left !important;
    border-left: none !important;
    width: 180px !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.online {
    background-position: 140px 0 !important;
}
body {
    background: repeat fixed url("https://s19.postimg.org/fs7ukw56r/keen_modding_background_white.png") !important;
}
.imageset.site_logo {
    background: none !important;
}
#site-description > a {
    background-image: url("https://s19.postimg.org/9qeyvv7b7/Foot.gif");
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    /*background-size: contain;*/
    display: block;
    margin-left: 10px;
    /*height: 72px !important;
    width: 85px !important;*/
}
}

It appears there's currently no option to set posts per page on a per-user basis. Is there a means for an admin to enable this or would it only be a global setting? For long discussions such as level theory, being able to set it to at least 20 posts per page would be very helpful.

It appears that such functionality can only be had by installing modifications to phpBB. I can't even find a global setting (other than editing the PHP code). There is at least one mod that adds these controls, but I'm not entirely comfortable with running third-party code on this server. Also, this forum is on v3.2, and that mod is for v3.1.3. I can revisit this later if we keep encountering inconveniences with the current posts per page number.

DNS for keenmodding.org is due to expire end of January. I'm not going to re-register it, so I need to transfer it to someone if the domain name is gonna still continue to work.

I think we got it transferred during the forum handover. Whois shows it registered with Namecheap (my DNS provider) and expiring January 28, 2020, which matches my Namecheap dashboard.

Huh, that's what I'd vaguely remembered, but I got an email from namecheap telling me it was expiring.

But I've just looked at the email again and it's addressed to you and cc'd to your email address, but sent to one of my email addresses! So I guess the only actual issue is my email address still being listed as the contact for the domain.

Yep, you're right - all the contacts for the domain had your information. I've just updated them so Namecheap shouldn't bother you with domain renewal emails anymore.

Glad that's sorted.
