I'll be doing it in the near future. It may be tomorrow or later this week. You'll see the usual message when it does down. Will be down for a few hours when I do it. Hopefully I don't completely blow up the forums!

The forum upgrade has been complete. The styles defaulted back to their defaults so I have to re-create them from scratch. Because of that I only enabled the dark theme. I will work on the light theme tomorrow.

Here is a quick lift of the core upgrades made with the new software.
  • Native push notifications on supported devices/browsers
  • Editor button management
  • Enhanced editor integration and advanced BB code option syntax
  • Tables
  • Reactions
  • URL unfurling
  • Emoji enhancements including an improved smilie menu with easy emoji access
  • Content bookmarking and sharing
  • BB code and rich text editing for profile posts and comments
I'm sure there will be some tweaks necessary. Post them in this thread if there's something you see that isn't how it was before.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Notes:
Reactions totals seem to have gone away. I'll see if I can merge them somehow.

Push notifications may not be possible due to the host we use. I will look into this further to see if I can make this work.

Push notifications have been enabled! FYI, if you have an Android phone you should get push notifications as well. iOS doesn't allow it. Probably never will.


Added lazy loading.

How do I switch to the lighter theme? This dark background is killing me.
Give me light theme or give me death
I activated light. Take a look at it and let me know if everything is good. Blandina, I had to make theme adjustments for you. I activated yours as well, but I didn't make the changes you needed because I can't remember them. Let me know what they were and I'll try to do them again.

And I said, “Let there be light, and there was light!” Light theme should be default 😛

Upgrade looks good 👍

I haven’t received anything, and the bell button on the bottom of the page comes back with an oops message
