Hi, Not sure where to post this hope its good here.
As always I need to read a lot to be safe when upgrading. Right now I have two questions.
1, when upgrading to 7.6.0 I don't wish to keep several of my early stysles option such as Koniro blue, Sunny dropshadow etc. see examples here http://www.britbike.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=cfrm I do wish to be able to use the different types example used here or UBBDEV. they are more modern. What will happen when I upgrade? will I just keep my old or will new ones come along with the upgrade? Oh we have lots of older men as members and I see that UBBDEV has a lasrger font option that is indeed interesting. Please enlighten me how to enable that?
Question # 2
I do have some advertiser and show their banner in two ways. on top and bottom of forum pages it shows in turns its a rotating sheme. in the left column I expose static banners. These banners work both on computer screens and tablets/mobiles. Well the text is little but the banners show properly. see http://www.britbike.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=cfrm Now when I upgrade what will happen upgrad in terms of mobile/tablets? will the banners show? I mean for example the left column will it show? I'm not sure of it and need to take care of it so the advertisers don't miss out any exposures. Any Ideas?
Hopefully I'll be able to upgrade soon. Thanks Morgan
When you upgrade, your additional styles will still remain; delete them if you don't want them.
If you are upgrading and you want the new styles, install them from the install directory with the style editors import function; they reside in the /install/styles folder and can be imported like any other style.
The larger don't style at UBBDev is simply a style who's font size has been configured to be larger. I offer styling services at www.virtualnightclub.net
Mobile users have sidebars disabled and they can trigger them to be visible by clicking the link at the bottom of their browser. This is the optimized approach as sidebars will make the forum very difficult to use.
You should place your advertisements at the top and bottom of your site (the advertiser island can place ads within your posts). Be sure that any ads are using a responsive system (Google for example offers these, they will change sizes bases on the screen width).
You can adjust your sidebars to have one side bar visible for tablets, but it's not currently in the software by default.
The test script is updated as soon as we make critical changes, you should get into the habit of running the test script when you think you're going to upgrade. It is created for both pre-sales and pre-upgrade users to make sure that they'll be able to run the software before even installing the installer/upgrader.
