It's a little smoother and more secure. Plus, it looks fancy!

I tried upgrading, but it didn't do it automatically, and required me to do things I don't know how to do. I almost lost all the info from this board when I tried.

sorry Shawn, your last post came in while I was finishing the update. Last time I tried installing php3, the only thing thing that saved my ass from losing everything, was that I backed it all up. Either way, it works now...so enjoy!

You need to turn Flash on in posts and change Chad's "Puck" avatar to a more reasonable size.

Try to add more styles, too.

Justin add the suggestions on this page:

http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 6&t=579376

It enables youtube/google video/spoiler tags. Makes it very easy to post videos. Older videos still will not get grandfathered in though.

i didn't quite understand what to do. The link sent me to the phpbb discussion board, where 1000 different people had their own different codes to do change.....my head spun!

Just read and follow the instructions in the first post. The rest are just people saying how they resolved the flash/script issue.

It's mostly just copy & paste in the Administration panel. If your still having trouble you can make me an Admin. for a day and I'll do it.

It simplifies posting videos and adds a few more functions.

I also noticed Flash is still off. On the right hand side below the smilies it says it.

Hrmm. You don't seem to have a working Flash permissions. Your BB is setup different than mine. Most of the looks is the same and I even have an older version. Mine is (I believe) on a Windows server though and yours Linux. I'll look into this some more.

I got it to work on the new stuff at least for me. I don't know if non Youtube/Google Video stuff will work. But the the new tags make it MUCH easier to post videos. They might work with the old [flash] tags.

None of it is retroactive I'm afraid. My one post with the [youtube] tags didn't work until I created a new post with the same code.

If you have a dummy account you may want to try to post a video for permissions testing sake.

I'll play with it some more, too.

Considering some of the content which anyone can see in the regular forums (most of which is my fault) maybe you can create an addition forum specifically for the Haunted Hayride and have people link directly there...
