Forum Version 2.6 Final Released

The 5th and final release candidate of the forum project version 2.6 has just been released. It's been a few months of work and I appreciate the testing and feedback by the community. I'm sure there are a few remaining issues but it's been well tested over the past few months.

I've included a summary of the changes and you can refer to the plugin which includes a txt file outlining all the changed files.

There are no database changes so all that should be required is to replace the changed files or complete directories. Existing sites running a previous RC release do not need to run any upgrade/update - just replace all the plugin files.

  • Fixed issue where the Gravatar images were not being displayed
  • Forum admin -> Delete Category now shows if category has no forums
  • Added rel=nofollow to temporary links like latest topic
  • Fixed small layout issue with Topic heading
  • Added Re-Sync of Forum topic when using the story migrate feature to update counters
  • Fixed several issues with Move Topic and move post feature - update last post info related
  • Fixed issue where "View New Posts" would not appear
  • Fixed issue with the View New Posts report
  • Added advanced search types to plugin search feature [Mark Evans]
  • Re-Sync the forum now after migrating stories to the forum to update forum indexes.
  • Removed hopefully all the places the forum id was being passed in links - just need topic id
  • Disabled error reporting on all calls to the PHP Function htmlspecialchars. Eliminates the error that was being reported by htmlspecialchars() when using ISO-8859-9 which is not one of the allowed charsets. Found that if you put a @ infront of the htmlspecialchars() call, it will default back to ISO-8859-1 and not report
  • Added missing language message displayed when you upgraded the plugin
