Code is poetry

We finally finished upgrading the KDE Community Forums to a shiny new board!

We changed a range of things, some of them being:

  • The board software: KDE Community Forum now uses phpBB 3.0.5. We thank all phpBB team members, especially Chris Smith (cs278), Ashley Pinner (NeoThermic), Nils Adermann (naderman) for always being around and monitoring the progress.
  • A great new theme, a fine work by one of our admins, Ingo Malchow (neverendingo)KDEsign4 - A KDE Forum Theme
  • A fresh new look to KDE Brainstorm:
  • Topic tagging and tag cloud
  • A little more AJAX here and there 😉
  • A lot of optimizations

We hope to have a smooth ride with this nascent change. Many thanks to the forum staff who made this possible.

Oh, and as there have been numerous things to look at, it is probable that we missed out a broken edge somewhere, since afterall, we are all humans 🙂
So if you find a bug anywhere on the forum, we request you to report it at the Upgrade problems thread or inform a staffer at #kde-forum on (See /msg sKreamer forumstaff for a list of staff)

Thanks, and enjoy!

    Quite an exciting project. The easy in being able to coordinate the application seems quite straightforward. It really outstanding how php BB is growing and yet becoming more user friendly.
