    Forum Display Problem

    I know about the forum display width problem. I tried to make the changes to resolve the "Mark Forums Read" problem and, unfortunately, there appears to have been a conflict with one or more of our other modifications. To resolve it, I am going to have to remove all forum modifications, products and plugins and start from scratch. Once that is done I am planning on installing the new vBulletin 4 product which I have been avoiding until it "matured" a little more. That is not now possible.

    It will probably take awhile to get everything back in place, including the color scheme and advertising graphics. If you are a sponsor, the term of your sponsorship will be extended by however long it takes for me to get the banner graphics back in place. The forum will also be closed off and on for a couple of days for this work to be done. The blog and gallery scripts will also require reinstallation so don't be surprised. Your patience is appreciated.

    I figured you where doing some Admin work.

    Thanks for the update.

    Heaven forbid software companies do any regression testing before sending out updates, hope you don’t have too many sleepless nights. Thanks for keeping us informed.

    Is this related to the security token not valid message I keep getting when trying to mark forums read?

    Thanks Bumper

    Yeah, when we had the attack on the site a few weeks ago I installed the newest version of vBulletin that changed the way the forum marked forums as read (now requires the security token) and one of our modifications to the forum also used that same area. The upgrade saw that as flagged as changed and did not add the new code properly. We will basically be starting from scratch....

    Okay, we're back up. It's ugly I know, but we are basically starting from scratch. Over the next couple of days you will see some features and designs come, some go away as fast as they were implemented. There are also some new features in this version that you may be exposed to that may become disabled before it's all over with so PLEASE don't start using heavily using all of the new "stuff" here only to be surprised when it changes or goes away. It's going to probably take a good week to get even close on the design and features we had before. And, yes, I know our header graphic, our sponsor banners, right side column banners are not currently up. They will be soon.

    The good news is that the "Mark All Forums Read" problem should have been resolved.
