[list]text[/list]
now returns:
  • text
like:
[list][*]text[/list]

Before, the first syntax did not induce a head marker.

Another thing that changed, is that tabs are now bigger in code tags.
Now 8 spaces, not sure how many before, but less for sure.

Code: Select all

12345678
	Tab1
	12345678
		Tab2
		12345678
+	+	+	Tab3

I believe it was set to 3 spaces.

I see a "User Contributed Sources" section with "Projects", "Sources, Examples, Tips and Tricks" and "Archive". Is that new?
It seems to me that topics with dead links automatically end up in "Archive", is that correct?
I just fixed a link in https://freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=157264 will move out of "Archive" automatically as well?

Nothing automatic here I am afraid. I moved it back to the examples.

According to phpBB forum sounds like a change was made to avoid invalid html (maybe?). To make a list with no bullets, use the [*] item marker but change the style of the list to 'none':

[list=none][*]item 1[*]item 2[/list]
  • item 1
  • item 2

Forum was offline 2023.06.04 for about 30 minutes for maintenance to update phpBB version 3.3.5 => 3.3.10

Couple of areas that were improved / changed in official phpBB code:

1) email notifications subject encoding
- we had previously patched this for ascii, now we using the official phpBB code instead since they have made updates to that code
- if we find is not working, can put our patch back in

2) integrated scss compiler for stylesheets
- the integrated compiler should make it easier to maintain the stylesheets
- previously using a clunky work around to compile the stylesheets

3) Some changes to the way search results are handled. Not sure exactly what was done here because I don't notice the difference, but the official code is altered a bit so something to watch for.

Custom patches / Modifications we still have in place:

- Allow search indexing of code blocks
- Allow underscore '_' in search terms.
- 'Unread Posts' button instead of 'New Posts' on the main page
- Custom colours in the style sheets
- addition of the 'tt' bbcode tag for monospaced text
