Canada Kicks Ass
UserCP broken

I'm not able to choose my favourite hockey team! I submit and it just goes back to the default "please select". Additionally, how do I select the political party logo on posts beside my avatar?

Also, some malformed phrases on UCP_PROFILE_PHOTO.

Thanks for reminding me, the hockey team has been broken for awhile, since last time i updated phpbb. Its such a main re-applying all the mods to phpbb after every update! Should be modular like Drupal.

The political logos indicate membership to the political forum groups, which also grant access to the federal party forums.
You can join one of the political party groups here ucp.php?i=172

Hey CKA,

I did actually join a group and got a confirmation email, but it's not showing up on any posts.

Phpbb3 surely must be more modular?


Canadaka @ Wed Oct 20, 2010 2:01 am

this is phpbb3, its a billion times better than phpbb2, but you still have to manually modify core code to install most mods. its horrible to maintain because of that.

Oh i know why its not showing up right now, the groups memberships is cached in memory, will recycle soon, or I will force a refresh.

Thanks. I would have suggested vBulletin a year and a half ago, but vB4 is complete crap.


Canadaka @ Wed Oct 20, 2010 2:13 am

At this point i'm pretty much stuck with phpbb, CKA has many non standard phpbb mods and some DB schema changes to integrate it with the main site. From what i've seen the benefits of some other forum software don't outweigh the amount of time it would take to convert the code and database.

That sucks VB4 is no good. I've kinda stopped updating the forum software unless something breaks. The old "if it ain't broke don't fix it".

fixed the hockey team selection and the missing language text

Thanks! Now I'm all decked out with the habs and the cons :rock:
