Hi,

I have upgraded the forum software, so please bear with us while we iron out any bugs, adjust any settings that we had previously set up and sort the style out. If you need any help finding or changing something, please say so here!

Thanks

Edit: Known issues-

*Avatars and Profile Photos have now been merged into a single setting. As a result of the upgrade, it appears some people's avatars may have been deleted irrecoverably, sorry.
*Reputation system is not enabled. It is currently causing an SQL error so I have had to turn it off for now until I resolve that.
*Shoutbox disabled currently

~Jon

I'm liking the new design!

It is very clean cut and modern! I will leave it on as an option when we switch back to the custom theme as default.

Likw the new theme.

I will leave it as an option once we switch back to the custom dark theme, which is almost upgraded.

Just some advance notice that I'm going to upgrade the forum software to its latest major release tonight so the forum might be down for a few hours whilst I do the upgrade and re-adapt the style. Will send a mail out when it's back up for business.

Okay cool, upgrade complete... a couple of bugs to iron out, if you spot anything wrong in the meantime, please post it here so I can look into it and fix.

Some issues I've spotted already;
  • Avatars not showing next to replies/topic in listings
  • Theme gets stuck on default if you switch to it
  • Error: Could not load template 'facebookShareButton' from group 'global' showing in icons beneath threads.
  • Forums/Members tabs in top menu duplicated on IPB style

Yeah i can't see my like page neither.

I sound like a narcissist, but is the like bar not working? Sory if I'm just impatient.

Yeah, whilst you can still ‘like’ posts and it will show who has done so on each post, the reputation system is currently turned off (and so you can’t see how many likes you have etc) whilst I try to resolve a PHP issue following the upgrade. We have various customisations in the code and tracking down this particular issue is proving tedious. Hope to resolve soon, but fortunately it doesn’t impact on general forum usage.
