Forum Upgrade & Downtime Earlier Today (4th January 2017)

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I've just installed the latest update to the forum software, this fixes a number of bugs and makes a lot of small improvements and speed enhancements, some other notable improvements and new features are:

Draft posts will now expire after 48 hours, if you go to reply or start a topic and a draft post is already in your editor you will now be prompted to continue with the draft or clear the editor and start again.

  • Lots of changes to the moderation tools
  • Lots more embeddable content providers 
  • Password strength requirements on registration
  • Leaderboards - this is something we will look at in the next few weeks before deciding whether to enable or not.

These changes have required the search index to be rebuilt so you may find searches and activity streams don't return what you expect - this should be all done by this evening.

These changes have resulted in some updates to the templates we use - whilst I hope I have implemented most of our custom changes again if anybody notices anything odd or out of place, please report it as usual in the Suggestions, Bugs, Errors and Foibles forum
