Solved 2 questions about my forum

Post by HogwartsAcademy on September 21st 2012, 6:54 pm

1. If I change my theme, what exactly will change? Will all the posts, members, CATEGORIES AND FORUMS be deleted?

2. Will anything change if I make update my forum to bb3 from PHPbb2?


Thanks

1) No posts, members, categories and forums won't be deleted.
2) It will just change the look of the skin. Install the skin directly from hitskin.com

So if I change from PHPbb2 to PHPbb3 it won't affect anything I already have at all? Because I don't want to lose anything or what not.

Don't just change the versions in the admin panel. the look of the forum will be messed up then. Install skins directly from hitskin.com for whichever versions you want.

Oh I understand now. So are you sure nothing will change if I do this? Because in my javascript codes I made a code that puts pictures over a respective categorized forum, and I don't want that to be lost.

So the question is, will my javascript be lost if I only change my skin? (Same version)

Only your CSS resets to zero if you change versions or themes.

Also, if you've done any work on your templates, they will be reset to default, and you won't be able to edit them, since you'll have phpBB3. However, if you change back to phpBB2, the templates will automatically be back as you edited them yourself.

I recommend you save your work either way.

Your JavaScript codes could not work if they are made for a specific forum version.

What If I keep the skin on PHPbb2 which is my version, will the javascript still work, even it's if it's a different skin (same version)?
