Forum Update

Post by yankeesrule3526 »

Welcome to the latest and greatest version of phpBB, the forum software Virtuadopt uses.

As some of you have probably noticed, there has been a large increase in spam bot activity on the forum. With this update, we hope this will significantly cut down on the spam. If we missed any, please report the post and we will address it.

This version of phpBB also changes the minimum required version of PHP. While the forum has been running on PHP 7 for a while now, parts of the website have still been using PHP 5. That means with this update, parts of the website using PHP 5 specific features broke.

I have made the necessary changes to make the code compliant for PHP 7, but it is possible I missed something. After all, Virtuadopt is a large, older site. So, if you notice something not working or as it used to, let us know immediately. The forum still needs some Virtuadopt specific tweaks made to it, like the banner and navigation links. These will be coming soon.

The site itself keeps saying I have unsupported php and I cannot put any click exchange credits on adopts. I have to reload several times to look at pages such as daycare or gts

The trading point doesn't work yet, either ^^'

edit:
also the VA banner in the forums isn't there anymore. Maybe I am "stupid" and it wasn't there before either but I think I clicked it from time to time to come to the main forum page.
And now you can't get back to the main page when you are at the forum. I am bad at explaining :'D

I can only use the Forum, anything else like the boxes, Daycare, CE, GTS dosen´t work.
If I´m trying to uses these pages/functions I receive this massege: You are running an unsupported PHP version. Please upgrade to PHP 7.1.3 or higher before trying to install or update to phpBB 3.3

And it doesn´t matter which bowser I use; it dosen´t work on chrome, firefox and opera

Hard refreshes/clearing cache should fix any messages with unsupported PHP version.

Is anyone else having problems with the trading point? I tried refreshing and clearing my cache but it's not fixing it. Also, links don't show up for me when I go to someone's profile.

Yankees while you are around, would you please change raffle and lotto prizes? It has been well over a year since they have been changed.

The Daycare doesn't seem to be working, it's not using any of the 10,000 I put in there this morning.

The same with my DC. Money didn't change since update.
Also agree that it's necessary to change raffle prizes, about CE I'm not sure about Tapus, but Diancie and Guzzlord are too much here.

I like the idea with Diancie and Guzzlord. New Legendary and Ultra Beasts would be nice.
And the idea with the Lottery/ Raffle prize change.

Welp, the daycare seems to be fixed but we are out of luck for new prizes, even though it is nearly summer and we have had same Christmas promos for 18 months now.
