    A new good thing! My many Reported Posts are getting Alerts when they are resolved.

    I hadn't noticed until you mentioned it, but now I see that four posts I reported have alerts with details of what was done - very useful.

    There is only one Danny, many moderators. If Danny's upgrades go anything like the many upgrades I supervised in computing, he is still sleeping to get back the 24/7 days he did until it worked. You can always fire Danny and just not return. Withholding the money you pay him has never worked in the past.

    Google searching for XenForo leaves the impression TABLE tags are an add-on to XenForo. My tests show none of the TABLE tags I tested are working.

    Within a week, we'll have the Hybrid Dashboard report for May. Sharing the updated, four-month, table won't be practical without TABLE tags of some sort (comma delimited postings are ugly!) I plan to do the charts that are generated in excel but these are pretty well limited to the top-20. The obscura, low-volume vehicles won't be shown.

    It has not gone away. The url for it has slightly changed, though. It used to be priuschat.com/f/prius-phev-plug-in-modifications.91/. It is now priuschat.com/forum/prius-phev-plug-in-modifications.91/

    I'll work on getting some redirects done for the old links to go to the new ones.
    Bob, I'm working on getting that add-on installed again for you. The version we used to use was no longer compatible with the newest version of XenForo, so I have to install the new one. Hopefully the tags are all the same.
    Yes, the "Watch" function that used to be an add-on I had installed is now part of the core software. Part of the installation of the updated forum software deleted the database table that housed the "Watched" data, but I have a backup of it and will be converting past watched threads and forums into the new system.
    Good eye. I'll put that on the list to add back this week.
    Pat, the problem behind finding your old posts has to do with the search functionality. I took the weekend off, but I'll try to get the search function working properly tonight. That should show everything again.

    Regarding the photos, I'm not sure about that. Do you have an example?
    All of those links will be put under the menu you show above in the coming days. It's just manual work that has to be done on my end, so I apologize.
    1) Thanks. I'm proud of the upgrade!
    2) The album system is kind of SOL at this point. It's not supported at all by the original developer and does not work correctly with this current version of XenForo. I will be installing a new "media" system this week that will import all of our existing photos from the Photo Albums and the videos from the Videos section. I'm actually pretty excited about the new system. I hope you guys like it.

    No need to apologize, Danny! I've done a lot of computer conversions myself (although none involving thousands of users) so I know how much work it is. Most of us, at least, appreciate what you do here.

    Yes we do, even if we sometimes offer feedback.

    Nothing wrong with feedback, as long as it begins with something like, "Have you thought of doing this?", rather than "You idiot!" :rolleyes:

    That could also depend a little bit on the culture of where you're from.

    For those who are experiencing slow performance loading the page, may I suggest it may be malware?

    All I want, is to be able to select how many postings per page I can view.

    Unfortunately, that is still something not available in the core software. I'll look around again to see if an add-on is available.

    So we have new software, but it seems that all threads that I have started have disappeared, and what few posts I could find that I had photos included, the photos are now missing! Is this just a big SNAFU, are further fixes in the works, or C are we just screwed.
    Last upgrade I spent days and days fixing the last crappy upgrade.
    I will not do it again.
    So what's up???

    Danny, I can't even find my posts.
    When I select the Profile page, Postings, Find all threads by KK6PD, I get NOTHING!
    When I select the Profile page, Find all content by KK6PD, There are 18 results!

    I have over 3,790 postings...... I can't even find a good example of this in the whole 18 messages the system finds????
    Sumpthin ain't right

    On my browser, the activity indicator is constantly busy while the PriusChat tab is showing. No other tab does that, except when a page is loading.

    Thanks for fixing the user info display, Danny! I see you've also added What's New to various places it was missing; just one inconsistency with this - the wording in other places is New Posts, and perhaps this should be the same everywhere.
