March 25, 2018 - Forums software upgraded

Post by kman » Sun Mar 25, 2018 11:25 pm

Hi all. We just got finished upgrading the software on the forums tonight. We're about 95% done but are still making some tweaks to the color schemes and some of functionality. For the most part, everything works but if you run across anything that's broken or doesn't look like it should, please PM me and we'll get it fixed.

Open issues so far...

1. Some of the colors aren't right (blue where they should be tan/brown)
2. Video links (YouTube) aren't displaying the videos inline - they just show the link. But quick note about this - any NEW posts or posts that you edit WILL display the videos inline. It's just older posts that aren't displaying inline right now. We have a solution for that but we need to test it a little more to make sure it works right.

So don't panic about the videos not being embedded right now - they'll be working (fingers crossed) soon!

I logged in last night and everything was blue like you said. I thought I messed up my settings, lol. The blue wasn't a bad touch though. :mrgreen:

Update on the video URL issue...

The majority of the embedded YouTube links should now be displaying their videos inline. I've run across a few random ones that aren't displaying but it seems the majority are working. If you see one of your old posts that isn't displaying the video inline, just edit the post, change something (anything...delete a character, add it back), and save your post and it should work inline again.
