Forum Update

Hey all,

Just wanted to let you know that we have finished the forum maintenance and upgrade.

Things you will notice and things we have changed:

1. text editor - you will see that it's new and improved. Which includes Auto Save!!
2. Optimized some of the plugins we use so that there's less processing on each page load
3. Made a small adjustment to the forums source so that pages will load significantly faster.
4. Upgrade the underlying libraries to the same ones that the RFD front-end uses.
5. Fixed geolocation in the menu.
6. Updated jQuery.
7. Improved the performance of the sidebar blocks that pull forum posts.
8. Updated the search libraries to index and search more efficiently.
9. Various style fixes.
10. Fixing some links, removing dead links.

Please let us now if are encountering any issues with the forum

edit: _Allan_ was beyond quick and started this thread for issues Doesn't matter which thread you use, just as long as it is logged and it will be investigated and looked after.

Thank you very much
For all community related matters, please PM TomRFD

Site seems even faster now for me too, great services. I like the extra font editing controls and new UI. (Auto Save! nice!) But just some weird commas next to nicknames on certain screens though, so wondering if that's a bug. So far looks good.

I noticed the autosave and the pretty new edit window :)

And you guys managed to get everything done in under the 2-4 hour original estimate, too (what, now you're taking lessons from the Montgomery Scott School of Engineering? :lol :) !

Thanks.

New PM inbox issue since last night's update.

Unread messages show as "read" (not bold) and read messages show as "unread" (not bold).

Since the update, the site appears to be either incredibly fast, or it hangs for 30+ seconds. When it works, it's faster than before, which is nice.

My situation is different from what OP described.

I have 0 unread messages at the upper right 'user panel'. But then when I go into my Inbox, all the subjects are bolded.
Wait, damnit, brainfart -- I meant to say my read messages are bolded. :o . I don't know if my unread messages would be unbolded as I don't have any in stock.

I wonder if the space between the extra commas are due to invisible users?
