Default LE Software Upgrade

Lampwork, Etc is now running on a new version of the vBulletin software (3.5.1). Many improvements are behind-the-scenes, but there are several improvements which I hope you all will enjoy.

The one I will probably like the most is that the forum now keeps track of which threads/posts you have already viewed and which ones you haven't. It kinda did this before, but once you logged out or left, it would assume you had read everything.. now it will keep track between sessions.

There is also a new post editor. The Standard Editor and the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editors are now basically the same editor. You can switch back and forth while editing a message by clicking the little A/A icon in the upper right. If you like the WYSIWYG editor better, you can make that your default editor in UserCP.

The chat has also been upgraded to the latest version available. I know there are still issues with it, but hopefully it will be a little better at least. I'm still looking for the ideal chat system for LE, but it just doesn't seem to exist yet.

I'll be surprised if there aren't little glitches here and there with the new software. Please report anything out of the ordinary that you notice! You can do so by replying here in this thread.

Thanks!
Jason

Hmmm... working the opposite for me. Threads I have read are still marked as "new" several hours after I read them. Do we need to log out and log back in for them to be marked correctly? I hope not...

No, you don't need to log out/in... That would suck.

Hrm I can't reproduce this problem even on multiple computers/browsers with a couple of test accounts. If I login, go to a forum, click on a thread, then click to go back to that forum (by clicking the forum name at the top of the page), then that thread no longer has the little "new posts" icon next to it. Note that if you get back to the forum by using the back button, you will probably have to hit the refresh/reload button in your browser before you will see the "new posts" icon disappear.

I'll keep playing and see if I can find something wrong.

My mail server logs show that the forum has sent you 58 emails so far today, and that all of them were accepted by your ISPs mail servers.

Only thing I've noticed is in the chat room. Last night I kept seeing 'undefined' under about 75% of the messages. Of course, I've only been in the chat room 5 times, so perhaps it's not the new version...

Thanks for everything, Jason.
