Yay! The board is fully upgraded to version 3.2.1!

Boo! There's only one board style working (prosilver) and all the extensions had to be removed, including all the cool BBCodes. But everyone's still here and all the posts are here and I just have to keep working on it to reinstall everything we're missing.

On the bright side, there isn't a glaring red warning barking at me every time I visit the Admin Control Panel.

Please complain and whine and stuff here, whilst I fix things up.

Yay for upgrades.....I think.
I won't complain that it looks like a kindergartener designed it because I know you have no control over that, but please, in the name of all that's holy, bring back the "unread posts" button at the bottom!

Yes, I will bring back all the buttons and features I can. Right now I'm uploading styles, American English, and some basic extensions.

This will take time (and effort), but our board will be fully up-to-date and will not have any security issues.

So it's worth the hassle.

I installed prosilver_xe style. Moving forward using all my breath.

Installed a "black" style, for those of you who prefer dark styles.

Now a few critical extensions, then I'll add moar styles.

Board seems to be working fine, but let me know if you have problems.

NO MORE YOUTUBE OR OTHER MEDIA CODES. JUST PASTE A LINK INTO YOUR POST AND IT SHOULD WORK.

Oh, I could get used to this.

Plus, it says ALL the previous embed links on the board will be fixed soon.

I'm loving the direct link back to a quoted comment and the time stamp on it.

I can go directly to Active Topics from Firefox, but once there I can't find that link anymore. When I'm done with a thread I have to go to Board Index. But right now that displays by category, not individual thread, which makes it much more tedious to search.

Click on the Quick Links at the top. The direct links are part of what Foggy probably has to manually add back.

I've added back all the styles except some dark style I had (but I think Black is better), Orange BBEs and Latte.

Is anyone gonna die if I don't add back Orange BBEs and Latte? :smoking:

To fix that requires hard coding of the files in each style, which I can do but it's going to take some time. Right now I'm concentrating on things that are quick and easy to install. Hard coding can be a little tricky, so I need to concentrate when I do it, and Sunday mornings are not my quiet time. They're my rock out time. 8-)

Well, I'm not going to die, but I did like latte. But it's not that important to me - the default style is just fine :)

Probably nothing that Foggy can do about it but I find that with the new version on my Android phone using the Dolphin browser I can not get the buttons on the left to work on the unread page. I will try other browsers.

Same problem with Chrome.

No problems on my PC.

I would very much love to have the previous dark style we had. I don't remember what it was called. I'm trying the black, but it's not making me happy. :nope:

If this update fixes the logging me out every time I turn off safari problems then I don't care if it's latte or plain coffee, I'll be good.
