Forum Upgrade

Recommended Posts

You may have noticed that the forum has been upgraded to the latest version of the IPB software in the early hours of this morning. Most of the changes are bugfixes under the hood and some cosmetic changes. There's a full list below but it's pretty dull.

 

The one change that will confuse people to begin with is that you can't make more than one reply in a row anymore. If you attempt to reply (using either reply or fastreply) to a topic where you are already the last post, it will append your new post to the old one. Can't say I really like that feature myself but there you go.

 

Please use the Testing section to see for yourself how this works.

 

Full changelog.

 

New features:

* Open external linked Blog in new window (setting)

* Limit number of Editors/Private Club members

* Add Editors/Private Club to UCP

 

Bug fixes:

* PHP Warning message when using Admin Content Blocks

* Quick edit sometimes shows blog main page

* Limits to editors/private clubs

* Signture HTML does not work

* Preview in edit post changes ' to \'

* Disallow creation of Private(club) categories when not allowed

* Page numbers have missing border on IE

* Locked skin when skin_id does not exists error

* Online list on Blog list page incorrect for guests

* Weird screen when hitting enter in inline settings

* Fix Gallery integration

* Number of entries not showing on edit Blog in ACP

* Fix duplicate hidden setting group on upgrade

* Fix logout link

I'm not sure what you mean. I don't think I've used that. Can you explain?

 

Please use this thread to report any problems you're having. I've noticed a few errors in the configs already which I'm fixing later today. Any help you can give identifying issues would be appreciated.

If you click on a profile name you used to be able to "view all posts by this user" and "view all topics by this user", they aren't there any more, i think that's what Stav was talking about.

 

Oh and clicking on options in the topic and the profile don't seem to do anything (top right). On IE it moves you down to the bottom of the page...there doesn't seem to be anything there but it's an improvement on Firefox.

Still trying to work this out. It doesn't do anything for us either.

 

Has it removed the "View all posts" and "View all topics" section from the profile details too?

 

Stav.

 

I understand now. Yes, it has. That's annoying too. I'll try and see if I can work out how it's enabled.

I have removed this.

I have also enabled members to view their own personal warn-level information, 0% means you have not been warned by the admin/mod team :) good work!

 

Can't you change that so that everyone can see everyones warn-level information?

 

It might help new posters know who the really bad people are and we would get to have a laugh at the people with high warnings. (Maybe I shouldn't say that!)

 

Seriously, there must be reasons why it would be better for everyone to see the warnings, not just their own. Even if it's just as a deterrent to people.

There is sometimes private information in the warn logs relating to the actual offence that should not be shared with the rest of the forum. Specific details etc.

 

Warnings and the like are between the poster and the mods, not for general consumption. It's the only fair way.
