Welcome To Icy Phoenix

  • What is Icy Phoenix?
  • Icy Phoenix is a CMS based on phpBB (a fully scalable and highly customisable open-source Bulletin Board package PHP based) plus many modifications and code integrations which add flexibility to the whole package. The official home page for phpBB is www.phpbb.com. Icy Phoenix has some features originally developed for phpBB XS Project which has been founded by Bicet and then developed by both Bicet and Mighty Gorgon. Icy Phoenix has been created by Mighty Gorgon after he left the phpBB XS Project.

  • What are the main features of Icy Phoenix?
  • Icy Phoenix has many features, most of them are listed in the Features Page and in the Credits Page. The main ones are:
    • phpBB bulletin board and permission system
    • CMS features allowing the creation of new pages and blocks
    • Overall template integration among all site sections
    • Many ready to use features: Photo Gallery, Downloads, Knowledge Base, Links, Chat...
    • Multi-language and multi-template ready
    • Almost 100% XHTML and CSS W3C compliant
    • ...and many others...

  • Is Icy Phoenix supported for bugs, security issues, improvements?
  • Icy Phoenix is an open source project. As like many open source projects it is developed by people using their free time. At the moment there are several persons in the staff willing to help and to contribute to this project. We hope the community will continue to grow and be able to provide all the necessary support to all the users who may need help.

  • Is Icy Phoenix easy to install and upgrade from other platforms?
  • Icy Phoenix has its own setup procedure which guides the user through the steps of the setup process. An upgrading file is provided to upgrade the package from standard phpBB and phpBB XS. Hopefully an upgrade procedure from any other platform will be written in the future: at the moment the only way to upgrade from another platform is by downgrading to phpBB and then run the provided upgrade procedure.

  • Does Icy Phoenix have many templates?
  • Yes, at the moment there are some free templates (some of them with multicolour variations) and we are working to create new ones. If you are interested in new templates you should regularly check the support forum and Styles Section.

  • Is Icy Phoenix multi-language?
  • English is the main language of Icy Phoenix, but it has been translated into other languages (alphabetical order): Arabic, Catalan, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish... and more to come! If you don't find your language listed here, please ask at the support forum, maybe someone else is working on the translation you need and you would be welcome to join the translation team to give your contribution.

  • Will Icy Phoenix be upgraded to phpBB 3?
  • The matter is quite complex. Even if the starting core was phpBB 2, many phpBB 3 features and core functions have been ported to Icy Phoenix: this means that currently Icy Phoenix is based on a version of phpBB which is an hybrid between phpBB 2 and phpBB 3. The code is highly optimized, it uses cache extensively, you shouldn't miss phpBB 3.

  • May I join the Icy Phoenix Project?
  • Of course. Icy Phoenix is an open source project, and anyone who is willing to give his own contribution on a stable basis may then apply to join the Team.

Before trying to install Icy Phoenix make sure you have the following STRICTLY NEEDED requirements:
  • At least 20 MB of free space in the folder you would like to install the package.
  • Web server with PHP (5 or higher) installed and running (works best on Linux + Apache).
  • MySQL (5 or higher) database with at least 5MB of free space (of course the space needed depends on how big your site will be... 5MB is enough for a basic empty setup).
  • Ability to set CHMOD permissions.


These other requirements (even if not strictly needed) are suggested for optimal performance of Icy Phoenix:
  • Hosting Services with .htaccess capability.
  • Apache Rewrite Mod installed and running.
  • GD Libraries (at least 2.0.28) installed and running.
  • Register Globals set to OFF.

Icy Phoenix 2.2 Beta 1

Icy Phoenix 2.2 Beta 1 Posted  Sun 27 Sep, 2015 11:19 By Mighty Gorgon
Icy Phoenix
Hi all,
I'm glad to announce that Icy Phoenix 2.2 Beta 1 is available for downloads.

What's New Respect To Latest Stable Release

  • PHP: increased compatibility with recent PHP versions
  • Plugins System: improved with new functions and features
  • New Classes: to improve coding and modding
  • Templates: few edits to templates functions and parsing, prepared for HTML 5
  • Thanks System: has been removed in favour of Likes System which supports AJAX and offers more flexibility.
  • Album: has been removed as a core component and created as plugin.
  • Cookies And Privacy Policy: due to new web rules, these two new sections have been created.
  • Many smaller updates and features... install this beta version to enjoy them all!



Old templates: please note that templates designed for Icy Phoenix 2.0.0.86 or below won't work with this version. At the moment apart of the styles included in the installation package only proSilver is available over GIT: Icy Phoenix Styles @ GIT.


Translations: please note that lang packs for Icy Phoenix 2.0.0.86 won't work with this version. Lang packs need to be updated before you can use them on your site. I will update all lang files in download section as soon as translators will send me their latest release. You can find latest development translations here: Icy Phoenix Languages @ GIT.


Customizations And Mods: please note that this version has many core code differences from the previous one, so it is really unlikely that old customizations and mods will work on this beta release. You can test current development versions of plugins if you wish: Icy Phoenix Plugins @ GIT.


Requirements
Before trying to install Icy Phoenix make sure you have the following STRICTLY NEEDED requirements:
  • At least 20 MB of free space in the folder you would like to install the package
  • Web server with PHP (5.2 or higher) installed and running (works best on Linux + Apache)
  • MySQL (5 or higher) database with at least 5MB of free space (of course the space needed depends on how big your site will be... 5MB is enough for a basic empty setup)
  • Ability to set CHMOD permissions

These other requirements (even if not strictly needed) are suggested for optimal performance of Icy Phoenix:
  • Webserver with .htaccess capability
  • Apache Rewrite Mod installed and running
  • GD Libraries (at least 2.0.28) installed and running
  • Register Globals set to OFF

  1. Unpack Icy Phoenix package to one folder on your HD.
  2. Copy all Icy Phoenix files in one folder on your webserver (i.e. /icyphoenix/)

    • cache/posts/
    • cache/sql/

  5. Follow all the instructions on the screen, fill all requested data and complete the setup
  6. Delete or rename install folder
  7. Customize what needs to be customized in files and db (some files needs to be edited manually, while most of the options may be set in ACP and CMS)
  8. Enjoy your New Site



How To Upgrade From Icy Phoenix 2.0.0.86 Version
  1. Lock the site from ACP
  2. Make a full backup of your website (both files and DB)
  3. Remove all old Icy Phoenix files, but make sure you are not deleting other stuff you may need!
  4. When deleting files, pay particular attention to custom files and folders like these:
    • config.php
    • backup/
    • downloads/
    • images/
    • files/
    • logs/

  5. Copy all new Icy Phoenix files into your root
  6. Make sure you apply the right CHMOD permissions as listed in the Fresh Installation section above
  7. Launch install/database_update.php and update your DB
  8. Delete or rename install folder

phpBB 3.1 Styles And Mods

phpBB 3.1 Styles And Mods Posted  Thu 30 Oct, 2014 10:03 By Mighty Gorgon
phpBB
Hi all,
as you probably already know phpBB 3.1 has been released: phpBB 3.1 Ascraeus Feature Release Published

The new phpBB codebase is quite different from the previous one, even if there is only a minor revision increase (from 3.0.x to 3.1.x).

Unfortunately I don't have the time to upgrade all my styles and few hacks I developed for phpBB 3.0.x, so I have to drop the support for all my phpBB related stuff.

Trust me, I'm not happy to take this decision, but I hate doing things poorly, and I'm yet doing poorly with Icy Phoenix... so I think that this decision is in the best interest of the whole community.

I have already moved most of old discussions into an archive section. I'll probably remove all phpBB related stuff from Downloads pages in the next few months.

I hope you understand the reasons behind this choice.

All the best.

Luca Libralato

Icy Phoenix CMS

Icy Phoenix CMS Posted  Wed 15 May, 2013 21:46 By Mighty Gorgon
Icy Phoenix
Hi all,
I just wanted to mention that I started a new repository for a new project: Icy Phoenix CMS (only CMS).

Currently it's very basic, because only CMS works, I need to integrate configuration panel and profile page at least...

But hey... it's a start!

You can find the new project here:

Icy Phoenix CMS

I may change its name in the future...

The goal of this package is to have a small CMS to create websites without any specific feature. Special features will be added through Plugins (hopefully I will convert existing Icy Phoenix plugins). I think the first plugins will be dedicated to photgraphy, since I'm going to recode my personal photographic website.

If someone wants to help, you are more than welcome. Code will be much less than Icy Phoenix, so I think it would be easier for new user to join and help coding. At the moment I also need help in cleaning up the package from some old code (Icy Phoenix left over). Feel free to contact me privately if you want to help.

Hopefully I will also add a wish list here, so everyone can contribute with ideas on the new development.

I'm waiting for your feedback (be kind!).

iCis - First iPhone Application Based On Icy Phoenix

iCis - First iPhone Application Based On Icy Phoenix Posted  Thu 08 Nov, 2012 10:31 By Mighty Gorgon
Icy Phoenix
Hi all,
I'm proud to announce that we have released today the first application for iPhone/iPod/iPad based on Icy Phoenix.

This application at the moment is in Italian only (because all contents are in Italian!) but if you love Italian Food you can have a look anyway.

The goal of the application is to share recipes and other contents published by users in the Italian community CucinaInSimpatia. You can use the application to access the content:
  • By Category
  • By Author
  • By Keyword/Tag


You can also filter recipes to show "gluten free" only or add any recipe to favourites.

All contents are published in the site through Icy Phoenix, I have coded the API to access the content directly online, so everything will be always up to date. It's a good test to eventually publish further applications based on Icy Phoenix.

If you have time or if you are interested, feel free to try the application.

For any specific information you can reply to this topic or contact me privately.

Thanks,
Luca Libralato

CUSTOMIZATION - Create A Custom Page In Icy Phoenix 2.0

CUSTOMIZATION - Create A Custom Page In Icy Phoenix 2.0 Posted  Thu 02 Aug, 2012 22:49 By Mighty Gorgon
Icy Phoenix
Since many users already asked how to create an empty page into Icy Phoenix 2.0 to insert custom content, I have decided to create this small tutorial.

There several ways to create custom pages, here are 2 different approaches:

  1. Create a CMS page (with the "central_block") and add the content into a custom block, so you can output whatever you like by creating a proper function. Just duplicate a block, and add in the function your content, something like this:
    Code: (block_myblock.php) [Hide] [Select]
    <?php
    /**
    *
    * @package Icy Phoenix
    * @version $Id$
    * @copyright (c) 2008 Icy Phoenix
    * @license http://opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.php GNU Public License
    *
    */

    if (!defined('IN_ICYPHOENIX'))
    {
    die(
    'Hacking attempt');
    }

    if(!
    function_exists('cms_block_myblock'))
    {
    function
    cms_block_myblock()
    {
    global
    $db, $cache, $config, $template, $theme, $images, $user, $lang, $table_prefix, $block_id, $cms_config_vars, $cms_config_layouts, $cms_page;

    $mycontent = '<b>My Fantastic Page</b>';
    $template->assign_vars(array(
    'MYCONTENT' => $mycontent,
    )
    );

    }
    }

    cms_block_myblock();

    ?>

    Then you just need to create a tpl called myblock_block.tpl in templates/default/blocks/ with this content:
    Code: (myblock_block.tpl) [Hide] [Select]
    {MYCONTENT}


    Then just add the block to the page and you are done.
  2. As a second option you can create an empty PHP page like this:
    Code: (mypage.php) [Hide] [Select]
    <?php
    /**
    *
    * @package Icy Phoenix
    * @version $Id$
    * @copyright (c) 2008 Icy Phoenix
    * @license http://opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.php GNU Public License
    *
    */

    define('IN_ICYPHOENIX', true);
    if (!
    defined('IP_ROOT_PATH')) define('IP_ROOT_PATH', './');
    if (!
    defined('PHP_EXT')) define('PHP_EXT', substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1));
    include(
    IP_ROOT_PATH . 'common.' . PHP_EXT);

    $cms_page['page_id'] = 'mypage';

    // Start session management
    $user->session_begin();
    $auth->acl($user->data);
    $user->setup();
    // End session management

    $mycontent = '<b>My Fantastic Page</b>';

    $template->assign_vars(array(
    'MYCONTENT' => $mycontent
    )
    );

    full_page_generation('mycontent_body.tpl', $lang['MYCONTENT'], '', '');

    ?>

    Then you just need to create a tpl called mycontent_body.tpl in templates/default/ with this content:
    Code: (mycontent_body.tpl) [Hide] [Select]
    <!-- INCLUDE overall_header.tpl -->
    {MYCONTENT}
    <!-- INCLUDE overall_footer.tpl -->


    Then in CMS => Standard Pages create the new page so you can add blocks and specify other features:
    Code: [Hide] [Select]
    Name: My Fantastic Page
    PageID: mypage
    filename: mypage.php



Enjoy your newly created pages!
