Thanks for the hard work Blaine,
I just upgraded the forum on my test server from forum 2.5rc3, GL 1.4.1
The upgrade completed successful.
2 things I noticed:
1) In the gl_forum_settings table the column allow_html_sig was still therr and caused the admin settings to error on save (all other table structures looked fine). Now since I am the only one who reported this error, this leads me to believe that this is probably an upgrade error on my part from an older forum version.
2) When a anonymous user replies to a message in the forum, the options row is displayed (under the CAPTCHA) even when there is nothing in it (I have HTML post mode disabled)
I was able to duplicate and address the first issue - thanks :thumbsup:
Not able to re-produce the second one. Do you see the issue on my site or on geeklog.net?
Regarding the 2nd issue. I can't confirm it on geeklog.net because they have html mode enabled for anonymous users and you can't post on your form without logging in. All I can say is that the options row is still visible even when there are no checkboxes on my forum. I haven't modified the forum in any way except to cahnge some of the colors.
I did find another issue. If you check off allow html. All forum messages that originally had the html mode enabled now show any html code in it, including any smile icons IMG html code. I would think that the Allow HTML setting of the forum should only affect new messages and not messages already in the system.
:D I really like the speed increase of this forum over the previous version. I notice it loading about 3 times faster on long topics.
