    We upgraded the site to the newest version of the forum software.

    As always, lots of things broke, and I have spent the last half day fixing things.

    There is more to do.

    Here's what I know of:

    -Fix the dark and gray forum styles
    -Fix some of the colors in the default style
    -Get HTML working again for old posts' images to show (going forward everyone must use BBcode rather than HTML)
    -Get photo insertion from gallery into posts working again
    -Get mobile app working again


    I'm sure other things will be broken. Please list them in this thread so I can work on them.


    Thanks,
    Amin

    Viewing on a ipad the search box seems to be out of position and the whole blue menu bar seems a little screwed up

    Also the my threads link seems to have gone

    Cheers

    One of the items is "Fix the dark and gray forum styles". Is there any way to change the style at present (I can't find the option to do so), or are we waiting for the fix before that's enabled? I'm really not keen on large areas of (near) white - it makes my eyes ache! :smile:

    Kevin... I like to never found my subscribed threads also. Heres how I located them. After logging in find your username on the left, click on it and it brings up I assume what is a control page . up at the top click on the drop-down menu for quick links, where you will find subscribed threads. Its easy from there. Hope this helps. Kelly

    What happened to "New Posts"? 101 Active threads isn't the same thing.

    New posts link with the new software isn't showing the number of new posts like it did with the previous version, is this an option that can be turned on?

    In the upper right corner of the screen it tells you that you have ____ unread posts. Is that not what you're looking for?

    I looked, but cannot see a drop down menu with a link to Subscribed Threads. Any additional info would be appreciated.

    I found it, not where I expected, but it is not exactly convenient.

    Improvements are always welcome, but I find this new graphical interface stylish but a bit more difficult to read.
    It may take some time to get used to.

    Hi Amin,

    When I click on the unread threads link I find the bold, red topics to be a glaring. FWIW - I am reading them on an iMac with a table lamp in a dark room.

    Post-Script - otherwise this version of vBulletin is a significant improvement.
