Great update!
I got one odd thing. I have a 1 next the Private Message button, but I have no new message. My last one was in April.
I means that there is a message that (technically) hasn't been read yet... it should show in RED.
There is another bug in the message system: when selecting multiple messages to delete them, you will get "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again." If you want to delete a certain message, you have to open the message and delete it from there.
This is problem inherent to the new software package, but there seems to be a quick fix we have to implement.

Very minor point. What happened to the logo in the page header (the hand grasping a soldering iron), I'm pretty sure it was there yesterday but today it has been replaced by "phpBB"
hmm... is it fixed now? It is this:

New users are put on the new fixed layout, the old prosilver has some issues. If you do not see the logo, you're on the old layout, but this can be changed from the user control panel...

Since posting that I've swapped browsers (from Chrome to Brave on Ubuntu 18.04 MATE) and it's working fine on Brave thanks.

If I need to use Chrome or Firefox in the future I'll alter the settings if necessary.

Hey, dudes!

I hope Modman will not mind me stepping in on this one: before the update of the forum, it had only one layout ("style" in phpBB lingo) - the default "prosilver". The few modifications needed for personalization and usability - logo, full-width, and so on - were done directly in the source code. This is not recommended because the modifications would be undone by the next update, unless special care was provided.
"prosilver" default style; notice that the logo was changed
"prosilver" default style; notice that the logo was changed
So, because there only "prosilver" style existed, everyone's preferences were set to use it. And, of course, after the update it remained like that. But, after the update, the modifications are now done in a child of the default style, called "prosilver-fsb", which is the one set to be used by guests (i.e. not logged-in) and new (post-update) members.
"prosilver-fsb" child style
"prosilver-fsb" child style

The "old" (before the update) members were seeing the default "prosilver" style. And because no modifications were made to it, even the logo said "phpBB" instead of showing the Freestompboxes logo. This is now fixed, as you can see in the image.

To solve this, we applied a hard fix by setting everyone to the modified style. The problem is that we were now unable to choose a preferred style. Some might like white space and rounded corners. Also, I'm working on a slighly futuristic style that some might like and want to use :D
"boutique" style; work-in-progress
"boutique" style; work-in-progress

SO, to keep the ability to choose a style, I changed the style for everyone to "prosilver-fsb". For reference, this is done by deactivating "prosilver", then reactivating.

I hope that now it is OK for everyone. As always, thank you for your involvement and let us know any issue you might have in using the forum.

The "Thanks" button seems to have disappeared from a lot of the sections (I was never sure which had it with the old system).

In some posts there are linked images, the links are OK but the images are not visible.
In the page source they look like: <img src="" class="postimage" alt="Image">

You should be able to thank here even, which is new. Let me know if you see a forum where you don't see the 'thumbs up' icon. Or anything else that seems off... really appreciate the feedback.

Yes, there is something off with embedded images, but not even all of them and it does not relate to file type... it may be a bug from the attempt to install some image viewing software... checking with Big G on this...

It is related to the security measures in place - the image has a non-https src. Time to dig into the database.

Thank you, x-tn, good catch.

LATER EDIT: And done.

Nearly everything post can be thanked in the "General Area" excepting those in the "Testing" and "Archive" sections, but there's nothing to be gained by allowing thanks there.

Everything can be thanked in "Circuit Analysis", good show!

After that, nothing can be thanked. "Stompbox Building" (including the subforums in the "Stompbox Builder's FAQs & How To's" section) and "Amps, Guitars and More"

There is "And here's my most recent build:" and the image is not displayed. Is it because of "?h=300" at the end of image URL?

The missing image it's because of the same http issue. I'm searching for a more exhaustive solution.

Meanwhile :lol: ...

Did you know that
...freestompboxes.org has 42855 posts containing non-secure "http://" links?
...which link to 7764 domains (not counting subdomains)?
...also freestompboxes.org has 28014 posts containing links like http://smallbear-electronics.mybigcomme...1240801556/ (notice the three dots), which were incomplete from the get go?

LATER EDIT: And done. Apparently MySQL can do regex.

Thanks! That solved a lot already.

In "Stompbox Building" most posts can be thanked now. Just the ones in "Tag & Turretboard Layout Library" and "Stompbox Builder's FAQs & How To's" with all its subforums can't be thanked.

In the "Amps, Guitars and More" area, still nothing can be thanked.

I can give thanks in this section... and saw other thanks as well, but maybe they are not recent...
Anyway thanks for the help: phpbb allows me to assume any user's priviliges, but this doesn't include the thanks. That is probably because the thanks functions is an extension, not an integral part of the phpbb software.
Thanks so much or helping me out here...

Happy to help! I can thank in the "Amps, Guitars and More" area now too! I couldn't not at the time when I made my previous post. Odd, perhaps it was an old cookie?

I deleted them all, logged in again and went to the "Stompbox Building" area. I still can't thank in the "Tag & Turretboard Layout Library" but at least I can post replies, start new threads - should it be necessary - report posts.
Then in "Stompbox Builder's FAQs & How To's" with all its subforums, something odd is going on. I can't do anything there? Can't thank, can't post a reply, can't start a new thread, can't report a post.

Also, I noticed a lot of the most recent posts in these subforums are from quite a while ago. Were some threads accidentally deleted with all the upgrades and updates?
