Seems the forum is working properly again?

Hey, I can post a message again! Does this mean the problem with the forum hacker is finally solved?
It seems to be working properly again...(although the link with Moya's website is still showing the "DB-utilities" site)

This is not angoid.

I am working with the admins to try to solve the issues.

We are workiing out of a hidden forum at Essexhosting - link below.

================

I have uploaded a bare copy of the v2.0.4 index.php that was 'damaged'.

I have installed the subsilver (standard) style, to try and remove the log in/out problem.

It may be a inconsistancy with the files.

================

My suggestion.

Copy away to a local drive the current software.

Copy up a complete v2.0.4 - make it work as a standard subsilver style.

Update that to v 2.0.18 which is the current version.

Then add/alter the styles after.

Please confirm, and I will do all that tonight.

================

I came here about the link from the Moya-site, so it seems to be working again. Yeah!!! Only the layout is different, eh??

Sorry (not Angoid again)

I did that - to try to remove a login problem. We still have it.

The default style is still available from the adminCP - to be able to be reset.

The first priority - apart from removing all the hackers posts etc - is to get this forum software uptodate - so that no future hacks are possible.

That will be easier with the standard style suppied with the phpBB2 software. The old style may not even work with the new updated files, so may need to be redone at that time.

I guess they have adjusted the link a few minutes ago!!! I think that is great because now everybody can post again :D
about the layout....it had the old layout when I checked it this afternoon but I guess it has this layout because like Chris said, they're working out of a hidden forum at Essex hosting....I am sure it will soon change back to the old familiar look...

OK I am 'registered' as myself now.

Please let me know what problems you are having with the forum software.

This is the real Angoid :D

Thanks Chris .... I'll pop over to EssexHosting and see what you and Jimw did to resolve this.

You into Moya Brennan? How about a copy of her new album to say thanks for your work? :lol:

This forum has always been publicly viewable. It's for people to ask questions of the Site Administrators or raise issues of an administerial nature. A kind of "site-related" forum if you llike.

Yeah, it's great to be back again here. :D I have to confess that I've missed the forum. And the new style of the forum is just wonderful. It really fits the look of Moya's new album. :D

Hiya all,

There was a lot of techie stuff coming up in this thread, so I've moved that away so as not to interfere with this discussion and cause "huh?!?! what are they on about?" questions :D

I discovered the original skin, and as you may be able to see it still works OK.

However, I'd done some considerable work to rebuild the skin before realising that the original was still there, so instead of throwing it away I left it there and uploaded it, calling it "subMoya".

You should all now be seeing either the original skin or my new one. If you're seeing the blue skin with the phpBB logo, then you're using the default "subSilver" skin.

Here is a tutorial on how to alter the skin you're using; set it to either subTrail or subMoya if you don't want the blue one with the phpBB logo.
