Hi,
  yes, older phpBB made me crazy when there were need for some changes and improvements. So we moved whole forum to this new system. Seems that almost all works fine except some internal links and as you wrote .. attachments. They're copied to new folder correctly, but are not attached. Hmm in which post you miss it?

The question is, how can you even add new files or attachments. I only find the possibility to add links from other web sites.

wait a while (hour or two). There seems to be some problem during a conversion from old forum. I'm working on it and I'm sure all attachments will be correctly added. Just a while please ...

1. Can we change the date/time format from "04:02:20 PM" to the correct European time zone (16:02:20)?
2.If I press previous or next (« previous next » right below on the page) then I expect as usual in other forums the next/previous page in the same topic and not the forum topic. Is this correct?

Peter changed the time, so it seems to looks normal now. Good to know correct time without need to recompute it :)

About buttons, I agree, but it's how this system is done. Anyway everything may change. Give it a while and we'll see if these buttons are useless or not.

Are you missing here anything btw? From my point of view, it looks much better then before. Tapatalk should now also works correctly, attachements, all posts etc. are correctly transformed from previous forum.

Keep in mind that this is based on SMF system, so if there will be need for any feature, I may always look into this repository http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/ to check if such plugin exists or not. Installation here is quite simple compare to previous forum, so it's not a problem to improve it a little ...

I would like to have a bit more contrast  :) , for me the older version was easier to read. p.e the links in the normal text. Maybe there are some layouts for choose?

I used to watch the forum/topics by using the "recent posts" list. The new forum does not really allow this (or I cannot use it correctly).
The current "recent" gives you a too detailed and hence a too short list of recent posts. It also includes several posts to the same topic.
Is there a way to condense the current forum's "recent" posts?


Another problem I'm having is that the forum always opens with the "search" function even if I open it with the URL "http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?action=recent". Is there a setting to fix this?
