Upgraded to phpBB 5.2.7 today, there was a problem ...

... so I had to temporarily disable all our extensions, which is most unfortunate.

I'm working on it with Tech Support. The upgrade seemed to work flawlessly, I got green confirmation messages across the board, but when I tried to log in I got a 500 error.

Still trying to figure it out, we will get our extensions back soon, I hope.

OK, I have upgraded and re-enabled a couple extensions (the one that gives us all the cool BBCodes and the one that opens links in a new tab/window) and they seem to be working OK.

Which means I have to enable the other 20 extensions one by one and see which one is causing the problem.

Unfortunately, today is Sunday, which means I have a very bizzy schedule and not a ton of time to work on this.

But I will keep working on it!

Oh, well if y'all appreciate my work on the site, good news! The Donate button is working again.

Donations have been dwindling, I'm sad to say, and I have to make up the difference between the cost of hosting (and SiteLock, which is $100/month but keeps out malware and hackers) and what goes into the PayPal account.

Any help is deeply appreciated. :blink:
