I got some help from the IPS guys and it turns out it was the mod_pagespeed addon. Does anypne still get the error?

Posting in full mode and editing seem to work fine for now (albeit the pages load a bit slow), but I just found out that I can't attach files to posts: it returns a message saying

Error No file was selected for upload

even though I try to attach a seemingly valid file type (zip). Same happens with a png file too (did that for testing purposes right now).

Smilies should be fixed, I also removed the jagged edges. Looking into attachments.

Could you please rebuild the search indexes? At this moment, it seems you can only search for content made after the upgrade, which is horribly annoying. Especially since you can't even request a user's posts and topics list without getting this limitation.

Editing existing posts and replying with quote works strangely for me, as in these cases I only seem to be able to type anything at the beginning of the post, before the quote or the text that is being edited. Same applies to pasting copied text. This is very annoying, to say the least.

Nyerguds, search indexes should all be fixed now, give it a try and let me know if you notice anything missing. I've tried a few searches and viewed a few user's content and it looked to be working.

MrFibble, can you explain again but with screenshtos? Not sure I totally understand, thanks!

I'm not sure it'd be possible to actually show that through screenshots, but that effect seems to have disappeared anyway, or does not occur every time at least.

Well, I was looking for a specific post made by Olaf Van Der Spek, but his posts still only show one single item when I go to "find content".

On that note, what on earth is the "members" option in the content types? Looking for members in one member's content seems bizarre and useless.

Give it a try now, I had to increase the time it goes back to 20 years, was limited to 1 year.

I think members is there as it is just a generic search page template and you can also search for members.

For some reason, whenever I try to paste text at the end of any line that's not the last one, it ends up at the start of the entire post.

Really annoying.

The last time the front page was updated was over a year ago, we need to keep updating it or the site looks dead. Or maybe add a twitterfeed from KJ anderson or Brian herbert?

No they changed something in the new version with avatars... it looks like they turned off the option to have an avatar gallery. I'm still trying to figure out how to turn it back on, I think the only way is with a mod.

I've had a similar problem and I suspect it has something to do with Opera (I use it too). Have you tried the "Toggle editing mode" option in the text editor?

I've switched the site over to a VPS install of MySQL so you should see speed ups in page load times. It is a 1 week trail so let me know what you guys think. Is the speed up noticeable?

So far it seems to be. I should know more when a spammer spams, and I try removing thread and marking account as spam at same time. That usually gets slow.

There are still a bunch of them showing up in the logs this morning so must just be some getting through.

For those of you who liked the older forum skin they've released an update to work with this version of the forum software. If you wanted to use it you can click the "Change Theme" link at the bottom of the page. The skin is called "FED2k".

If you run into any problems switching just let me know.
