Forum upgrade planned for this weekend

Recommended Posts

Steven P.    13,437

This weekend we'll be upgrading to Invision Power Board 3.2.3.

This update fixes a lot of issues with the editor, and a few other major changes as seen here.

Because we also have a lot of custom hacks, these also have to be coded back in, so expect some downtime Saturday or Sunday, but the upgrade should be a lot smoother than recent ones because this is mainly a bug fix update.

Seeing how it's just a minor upgrade there's nothing that could possibly go wrong.

... right?

We've already upgraded the dev site and the themes appear to be OK, so yeah! It's the custom hacks that are usually the problem (forgotten ones etc).

It's why I rolled back to Firefox 8.0 Beta :p

Spell check also didn't work in CKEditor (Our NewsCP) but now it is working again.

Well for CKEditor, the plugin that spell checked was flagged as a malware site, I guess they fixed it.

Our NewsCP ^

But the forum editor uses the built in Firefox dictionary, so i don't know why it doesn't work with Aurora, does on 8 though!

I forbid the upgrade. It's fine as it is. Quick breaking what's not broken!

Just Kidding, of course.
