If you just go to Forums then Recent Posts appears on the top. You don't have to click on any buttons.Is that the "New Posts" button on the top left? Will any of other skins/themes be installed? Right now there appears to be only one.
People are saying they have no link to change their PB Style. I see it; it may be only showing up for Admin and maybe Mods.If you just go to Forums then Recent Posts appears on the top. You don't have to click on any buttons.
I just loaded a second theme called Xenforo. I'm working on adding a final theme, PB Dark.
That's what it is. The BB code shows it came over in the copy paste. So, as Emily Litella used to say, "nevermind."
I've been holding off on this for a couple of years. Xenforo 2.0 came out a couple of years ago but I just didn't have the time to do the upgrade. I need to upgrade in order to make sure the software is secure and supported. It will also permit some new features.
Most of the functionality will be maintained. I just spent several hours going through every Add-On. Most of them will come over to the upgraded site but things are bound to be a little different.
I'll let you know soon when I'll be planning to put the board into maintenance mode and then start the upgrade process.
It is really nice. I had been resisting the upgrade because there was so much work to be done but it was an increasing security risk to leave things as they were. We're now running on the latest version of PHP and I even upgraded the search cluster.
@Semper Fidelis , any thoughts on getting Google SSO re-enabled? It appears to still not be working post upgrade.No rush, Rich, but it looks like Google SSO (AKA connected accounts) for logging in is not working. Take your time on that one; I can authenticate manually, so no biggie.
Overall, I like the look and feel, but as a resident new guy, I had not become attached to the old layout yet.
