@nine2 the side by side preview feature is cool, but it looks less...what's the word...manegable? Intuitive? user friendly? than the old one.

Too much white, too little emphasys.

@DDDX you can change the theme though which is a huge plus. I'm personally using "Cyborg" for a less bright experience. If you click your profile icon in the top right and go to settings there's a "Theme" dropdown. Cyborg is pretty much black, Darkly has grey and Slate has a lighter grey. The others are all white and bright.

The forced opt-in for email bollocks is bollocks.

I'm trying to put the forum into a static http archive. As there is no way to put phpbb into read-only mode I temporarily put a password on it.
However my attempts of archiving yesterday failed, so I guess it will stay a little longer like this. (The old URLs will go invalid in all cases!)

Anyways as we want to get rid of potential security vulnerabilities related to out dated software, we probably gotta take it down eventually or transfer into static achieve don't think read only mode would help a 100% from attacks.

So something like that https://www.httrack.com/ ?

I tested wget in archiving mode and httrack. The results were underwhelming in both cases.
