Forum upgraded to MyBB 1.8
We needed to get off the crusty old version due to security issues.

Due to MyBB being a steaming turd the upgrade is... complicated. I've gotten most of the things I want migrated, but there's still a few issues to iron out. I'll be doing that in the coming weeks. I have a little time on my hands lately ;)

If you notice anything weird note it here so that I can appropriately shoot it down (wontfix) Wink

  • First thing to note is the visual editor when creating posts. I don't like it, personally, but it can be turned off by going in to your UserCP > Edit Options and under the Other Options you turn on the option for "Put the editor in source mode by default".
  • YouTube embeds don't work automatically any more. I don't know why. I'm working on that too.
  • I fixed a few style issues. Other style items are a bit funky, like buttons.

I also upgraded PHP to 5.6 and fine tuned some htaccess configuration for cache and such. Between everything that's changed we're a little bit snappier in the speed department.

The green theme does look a little nicer though.

CSS for the main (green) theme has been made more tolerable for mobile. That'll do until we get a real mobile theme again.
