hailBoards is also returning...

Or rather, the Phatooine hailBoards style themes from the original site, ported to phpBB3 with the help of the stormboards project.

For now, a 'beta' of hBWinter's port (hbWinter2) is available. So set your theme to hbWinter2 for the oldschool JC/hailboards look!

Once the initial work is done it must not be that bad. I remember the nightmare posts about coding hailboards the first time. *shudder*

There was much swearing, drinking, and insomnia during those coding days.

That explains the inexplicable deja vu I've been experiencing. :|

I had a drink tonight for the first time in a few months. Stopped at half glass. Looks like I'm getting old

I'd argue that nowadays... but I also have a decade of experience now. :p

hbWinter2 is temporarily disabled until certain bugs in its design are worked out.

Wouldn't happen to be the stormboards I was working on all those years back, would it? :) Glad to see you guys are still running this. I'm disappointed I'm not able to see hbWinter2 at the moment.

Yep, it's stormboards, but it needs a bit of updating to get it up to 3.0.11 phpBB spec. I know what needs to be done, just a matter of coming up with some free time to make the template edits.

Yeah I can imagine. I'd be scared to look at the code and changes that were made.

Good news is that LT and I are working on a mobile-friendly theme based on Hailboards. No ETA but it is moving along.

As for editing Stormboards I'm sure he and I can knock that out between the two of us.

Due to bugs Hailboards has been disabled as we develop version 3.0 from the ground up.

Next version's going to be nifty. Also... for the folks who never stopped using 1.2.x--I'm working on a new patch for it. A 1.3 version with some unofficial security patches as well as compliance with the final phpBB2 version. I doubt anybody's still using it, but what the hey--an up-to-date standalone hailBoards 1.x version based on phpBB2 might still draw some users--and create an upgrade path to the upcoming hB 3.0 (basically a hB to phpBB3 converter/updater with the hB3 theme system)

So yeah. That's right. Support for the 1.X branch of hB will resume shortly.

Nemesis,

Due to the changes that were made with the most recent version of phpBB3 it is actually easier to re-write the style than to try to fix some of the bugs/security holes. Don't worry, though -- it'll be super-improved and awesome.
