    It's clear that the natives are unhappy about this updated software. While I'm not a forum software expert and there are many vendors of forum software, I do know that vBulletin is a player. This seems to be an implementation issue rather than a flawed product and hopefully we have some folks behind this that can sort it all out.

      Check out this forum that I belong to, see how you like it. Apparently uses the same software but I can't determine the version.

        It certainly looks like a vBulletln based board. The version is somewhere in the v5 area since it uses JSON syntax in the query string portion of the URL.
        like vBulletin based down

          vBulletin.version = '5.2.2'; It's in the page source.

          (And pasting that text in seems to have changed the font to Courier; I had to go into "source" mode (the top/right button in the formatting bar.)

            Seems like the forum has more problems today than before. In some respects it is a mess. A return to the previous software should done. Then throughly debug the new before imposing it on the general user.

            Loading a revised software version should not require 10s of hours of load time.

            Create a new web site in which to do your experimenting. Leave the regular site in a working condition.

            As I said before, if you were supplying software to an automotive production line, then way before now you would be out of business.

                Yes. The old version defaulted to interpreting pasted content as plain text and applying defaullt fonts and sizes to it. The new version tries to interpret all pasted text as formatted text and to preserve the format from the copy source. For the needs of this forum, that is not a good choice and the behavior should be changed if possible.

                        It's like breaking in a new pair of shoes-- at first, they pinch, they rub, they squeeze your toes. But after a few (?) weeks of wearing them, they feel like the best pair of shoes you've ever worn! Besides, your old left shoe had a hole in the sole and every time it rained your sock got wet!

                            How ironic. Welcome back. Stay a while and get comfortable.

                            The new BBCode version upgrade just got over a major hurdle just this morning. There are still features to restore, and, I am sure, new features to be discovered.
