3.0.6 custom style update question

Postby TheKog » Wed Nov 25, 2009 2:04 am

DCZ-

I just finished doing the 3.0.5->3.0.6 update for a non phpBB SEO enhanced forum and waded through a TON of changes to my custom style which is based on ProSilver.

Now I am getting ready to do the update with automod for another site where we do have phpBB SEO in it's entirety from the 3.0.5 premod installation - this site also has a custom style which when we moved to phpBB SEO we went through the mod file showing us what we needed to change in the style files for SEO to be happy.

Question is this - I see in the contrib folder of the preMod full install at 3.0.6 the prosilver_subsilver2_code_changes.txt file detailing the changes to my custom styles from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6 but upon review I have noticed that this file is dramatically smaller and has fewer changes than I just went through applying manually to a base custom style in a non-SEO installation. Why is this so?

ALso the contrib modified files shows far fewer files changed in the styles for phpBB SEO than were changed in the core 3.06 upgrade? Why?

Just concerned about starting this upgrade process without a full understanding of the impact to my custom style and what I need to do there. The rest is not an issue. Do I need to wade through all the stuff that came from the base style upgrade and then also apply the phpBB SEO updates as well? If so thats gonna be weird because my style already has all the 3.0.5 phpBB SEO updates in it too ;)

Thanks in advance!

Well, the files in premod's contrib/ are only the files modded from phpBB3.0.6 to premod 3.0.6, so of course there are a lot fewer changes than from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6.

Here (Prosilver / subsilver2 code changes) you'll find an update file listing changes between premod3.0.5 changes to premod3.0.6. These does not includes phpBB3.0.5 to 3.0.6 changes either, they are meant to update the SEO code on an up to date them (as far as phpBB core).
The idea is to first update you theme using phpBB.com code change for styles, and then to apply our update for our code.

Or, the full story is to be found in the premod update packages, which all takes care about phpBB and SEO code update at the same time.
If you theme is based on prosilver, you can just winmerge it with the latest premod's one, should not be that hard to keep your modifications.

Got it - I will use the premod autoupdate which should automatically handle the core phpBB and prosilver which comes with it.

My theme is based on subsilver2 and we applied the SEO mods to it when we setup 3.0.5 with the premod.

So after doing the SEO premod autoupdate I will manually do the core phpBB updates to the style as found at phpBB in the 3.0.5->3.0.6 changes, then will apply the SEO 3.0.5->3.0.6 changes per your link.

I noticed there are two files, a larger one then the update one - do I need to apply both or just the update one?

If you updated the phpBB part, then you just need to apply the SEO update, the other file is the full install on an up to date phpBB style.
