      Forums Upgrade

      We have tonight updated to the very latest version of vBulletin. As per usual there may be some teething problems, as this is quite a large upgrade, and until we have modified all of the required templates, some functionality may not be working. We will be upgrading these templates as a matter of urgency.

      Changes include:
      • Social group discussions
      • Social group categories
      • Private message sorting and filtering
      • Private message history
      • Quick edit for newer types of content (visitor messages and picture comments)
      • Social group icons
      • Social group transfers
      • Private message quick reply
      • Private message throttling (limit messages sent over a time period)
      • Private message reporting
      • Profile privacy (limit blocks to a subset of users)
      • Lightbox navigation
      • Thread prefix permissions
      • Dismissible notices


      Please report any issues in this thread and we will resolve asap.

      Thread prefixes from what I understand are so you could add [Tutorials] type beginnings to the thread.

      Yep - The forum titles were too long for search engines, according to a report that we did.

      However it does say it on the forums home page, and only changes to the thread titles on viewing threads.

      Re: Forums Upgrade

      On one thread, I had a yellow band at the top which said something like
      "You need additional plugins to view all the content of this page."
      I didn't download, but the message is now gone.

      It was from a flash advert, it would appear the agency have network issues at the moment, hence the slowness of some ads being shown.

      I am trying to change them to .gifs as we speak.
