Oh yeah, I was using subsilver 2. I've been using it for so long I almost forgot there were other themes :P
It works normally with other themes, though the SDN logo is slightly different to the one I'm used to seeing.

Ditto running subsilver and still only seeing the phpbb symbol.

An unusual kind of down, too; every time I tried all I got was the swirly thing in my browser tab— it never even resolved into an error. I did once get the text-only of the main page, without the stylesheet (so it looked a mess) but that was about it until just now.

Board was not loading for me briefly, about a hour. Probably just a hiccup.

No loading problems here.

Is there any update on when/if the site certification will be renewed? I'm getting a bit tired of having to constantly bypass the error condition that pops up every couple of days (I don't want to make it a permanent bypass).

Hello, everyone. I updated the board software to the latest version (3.2). Apologies for not doing it earlier. I had been waiting for some of the authors of the styles on the board to create new versions for phpBB3.2, but it came to my attention that the old version was starting to exhibit serious security issues, so I decided to just go ahead and upgrade without all the styles.

As a result, many of the old styles are missing. There is no more subsilver2, although I found a user-created one which approximates it. There is no more MillenniumFalcon, although I may be able to find the time to recreate MillenniumFalcon soon. I managed to quickly cobble together an approximation of BlackSoul (hopefully there are no problems). The second version of BlackSoul is also missing (the one based on subsilver), although I'm hoping to get that one back on-line sometime as well. The "basic" theme and its variants are also gone, as the author never made an updated version for phpBB3.2.

Note: anyone who was using a style other than prosilver or BlackSoul-SDN will be automatically switched to BlackSoul-SDN.

Please let me know if you run into any problems. Since I don't spend much time on the board lately, if a problem is urgent, please let Dalton know (he can get ahold of me if a problem is serious).

Getting fairly serious graphical corruption in all themes except AllanStyle-SUBSILVER on Chrome on MacOS Sierra. (All dropdowns open all the time, and topic icons repeat all over the place).

Firefox and Safari work, Chrome on El Capitan and Windows 10 also work.

I had the icon spreading issue. Clearing cookies as suggested in the header solved the issue.

If you do have time to recreate MilleniumFalcon theme that would be great. It made the board distinctive. I don't like BlackSoul and prosilver makes it look like every other board I'm on.

I was going to ask if there was any chance of fixing the issues I mentioned in the "EVERYTHING LOOKS DIFFERENT" thread, but it's vanished (and I can't remember now everything I said). Was it in Testing?

The major issue I remember is having the icons and stuff over on the right — there's at least a style option for on-the-left on every other phpBB board I visit regularly, and it really does vastly improve readability.

Last week or so, I've been unable to go to the forums on my home computer. I try to click on the link to the forums, I get a message saying basically that its down for an hour or so for maintainance.

I have no trouble logging in from a library computer (except for whatever happened yesterday). Just my home computer. So it took me a while to figure it out, especially since when I logged in, I noted some changes to the appearance of the board, and initially I figured that their was some maintainance that just took longer than expected.

Now, my computer is an old piece of junk, so I'm fully prepared to accept that its a problem on my end, not with the board software. But just in case, I thought I should mention it here.

Maybe remove SDN history, cookies, and cache? DNS issues?

Software has been updated to version 3.2.1.

Work is finally progressing on MillenniumFalcon. However, while it is functional, it is not yet complete. Once the prosilver version of MF is done, I will try to get subsilver versions of BlackSoul and MF up.

Any word on updating the site security certificate? I'm getting a bit beyond fed up of constantly setting up a temp exception (I won't do a permanent exception on general principles).

I'll look into it. In the meantime, I believe MillenniumFalcon is working. Subsilver-style versions (with the avatars on the left) of BlackSoul and MillenniumFalcon will come in time.
