I installed a security update last night, and it seemed to cause a few problems. Millenniumfalcon theme users had quote problems this morning which I fixed by copying some code from another theme. Are there any other problems to report? If so, report them here.

EDIT: I also made a slight modification in order to speed up posting and editing by modifying the way the search function works. If there are any problems, please let me know. If you notice that it's faster or slower when posting, also let me know.

With Opera it still doesn't let you actually go to a page other than the first by clicking on the link :D yes I know that's an Opera problem not a board problem.

My password needed to be changed. I've been prompted a couple of times since about me needing to change it in around 730 days hence. Quoting in the Falcon theme looks different, but it seems to work now.

There's an occasional incident where I cannot post a reply or access forum pages. White page pops up stating something I need to read next time.

Other than that, it seems to be working for the moment.

The password issues might be a result of the security update. Maybe it's enforcing more password rules now. One other thing I forgot to mention is that the left/right image tags were changed in the new version for some reason. The new syntax changed from:
Code:
[left]image[/left]
[right]image[/right]

to:
Code:
[img=left]image[/img]
[img=right]image[/img]

I'm on the millenniumfalcon and there's still a slight bug with the quoting.

The white lines that used to frame the top and bottom of every quote are gone so that its difficult to tell where a quote begins and ends.

I'm getting a pop up everytime I log in to change my password. It's forced me to change my password twice in the last few hours. Since it doesn't seem to be happening to anyone else I'm not sure what the problem could be. Is it a cookie thing or maybe because this isn't the lastest IE? <shrug>

Is your password a simple one? It seems to dislike passwords which aren't at least 6 characters long and which don't contain at least one number.

There are a couple of people who are reporting password problems but I haven't noticed these problems myself, so I'm hoping this turns out to be the issue.

PS. I just made a modification to speed up the board. Hopefully it works.

The original password was simple, yes. I changed it to a combination of letters and numbers. But I didn't change it through the pop-up, rather, I went into my profile and changed it there. For some reason, it didn't take and I was told that my password had expired. Three temporary* passwords later, and I've changed my password through the pop up.

*I went through the 'your password has expired' process three times today. But I'd bet that's because I wasn't aware just how temporary the emailed passwords are.

I think I may have caused the glitch by ignoring the first pop up, but changing my password through my profile page. Does that vague up the issue for you?

Well, I've noticed this problem with the search function in the Subsilver theme, say when you look at someone's post history, yours for example:
http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/search.php ... Darth+Wong

This works, however when you want to go further back, the link you click on looks like this:
http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/search.php ... 7&start=25

This doesn't work, what it really should look like is:
http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/search.php ... g&start=25

That error looks like you just tried to access it while the server was resetting itself. It does that automatically every now and then. If you tried again 30 seconds later it would probably be OK.

Occassionally, I cannot use the bottom links to access forums (i.e., at the bottom of a topic I've just replied to, I cannot use link to the forum or to the index).

I noticed that bug in searches which return lots of pages. It occurs even on the phpbb.com website itself, and I think it's a software bug that they just hadn't identified yet. The software stores search results in a search ID table so you can go from page to page without re-running the search query (as your recommended query would do), but it doesn't seem to work with search results that return a very large number of results.

If you searched my post history but limited it to the last week, you would find that the pagination works fine. I'm not sure if the phpbb.com crew is aware of the problem; perhaps I should try reporting it as a bug.

PS. You should edit the RIGHT tag in your sig to be IMG=RIGHT/IMG as noted earlier in ths thread.

--I use the Millenium Falcon theme. The search function does not work properly since I can only view the first page of hits. This may be by design, but it is highly annoying....

May just be you... Works ok for me. Though maybe you're just barely missing the number when you click? If you don't hit the number itself it'll do that.

It's a problem in Opera. I've sent in detailed bug reports on this with each new version, but it looks like I'm getting ignored on it. I'm close to either switching themes or using Firebird for SD.net instead, myself.
