    I have just completed phase 1 of 3 upgrades to the forum.

    If you notice any bugs, issues, broken stuff, please post to this thread with as much information as possible, including a way to replicate the problem (if possible).

    I will update with more information on what I actually did, shortly. Thanks for your patience today.

    Ros, did you upgrade the link posting? Seems like it is unnecessary to use the link button and repaste, etc.

    That makes it much easier.

    I hope there is a special place in heaven for you.

    Make sure you call head office to submit your request for a refund.

    I don't know exactly what you mean, but there are a year's worth of tiny fixes and updates to the forum which got applied, most of which I am probably quite ignorant about.

    So here is the deal. Xenforo is awesome, but they got sued by vBulletin (the previous system we used) and haven't put out a software update in a year.

    So they came out with an update after defending themselves in court, and then a bunch of subsystems like tapatalk (mobile support) etc, updated as well.

    I am just about 1/2 way through all the updates. It shouldn't impact you guys in a big way, but there may be bugs or issues, so keep me informed.

    Also, I wanted to do it on the 1st, but I got super busy. In fact, I wished I could have finished everything today, but I think it will take until tomorrow to get it mostly tidied up. A lot going on here.

    I am excited to get the new chat installed.

    Updates are

    Xenforo fixes, bug patches, better spam handling, improved registration etc.

    Tapatalk to latest version (1.5.2 I think)

    Our advanced Conversations system (private messages) to version 1.17.

    Next up, some cleanup and installation of new shoutbox chat.
