Update to Forums

Post by Ares » Thu Jan 19, 2017 6:10 am

Hey folks. Just wanted to let you know that phpBB has released an update that I will be implementing Thursday, January 19th at approximately noon Central US time. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the forums will be down temporarily while the update occurs and to not worry. I've also backed up the forum just to be on the safe side.

I hope that's enough advanced warning for everyone and I apologize for the inconvenience.

On the off chance you aren't seeing this, Ares, the main screen is flooded with new post icons and the individual pages have all of the foldout bubbles expanded (such as off "Quick links" and off of the username).

No problem in IE 11.0.9600 or Firefox 48.0.1, which would explain why you feel everything is fine. :D

Yeah, I use Firefox and hadn't noticed anything. I'll look into this when I get home in an hour or so. Everyone that uses Google Chrome, please bear with me.

I got that same problem as well, refreshing the main forum page fixed it for me but I'm using IE.

I got the same thing in Firefox the first time loading it. Reloading the page worked for me.

I'm a little bummed with the update because I was using list to indent things and now it automatically inserts a bullet for the first item even without a [*]. Also, it forces a HR after the list code, and it wasn't doing that before.

:(

I cleared my cookies, cache and board cookies/cache, then sent a PM. That cleared it. I think if you post or send a PM to somebody, even to yourself, that might help snap it back to normal.
