    Noticed that there is a new button in the reply box. If you frequently use images/smilies that are linked to other sites you can upload those pictures to your Media Gallery and link add them to posts through this feature. It also added a "Media" tab next to "User Albums" tab at the top of the page. Not sure if/how the "Upload a File" button is linked to the Media Gallery. I haven't tested the feature out just yet, should be pretty self explanatory though. If you have any problems let me know. Just go with the trial and error method until I have time to test everything out myself.....you won't (shouldn't) break anything.

    So I played around with this a little bit. Adding media is pretty simple. All you have to do is:
    1. Go to the "Media" tab at the top of the page.
    2. Click the "Add Media" button located in the same area where "Create Thread" would be when creating a thread in a forum.
    3. Then either:
    A. Select "A Site Category" (these are predefined categories that I have set up).
    or
    B. Select "An Album" (these are user defined/created albums, you won't have any at this point so you will need to create one and set the permissions)
    4. Then you can:
    A. Upload a file from your computer
    or
    B. Copy-paste the image link to an image located on another website then press the "+" button.
    5. Confirm the upload.

    After you have uploaded the images to the Media Gallery you can insert the images by:
    1. Clicking on the button that looks like a camera in the reply box (if you hover your mouse over this button for a couple seconds it will show the "Media Gallery Embed" title).
    2. Select the image you want to embed (which will be under the box where you type your replies).
    3. The image will then be embedded where the text cursor is currently at in the text above (via BB "GALLERY" tags.)

    Example:
    This is what you will see in the reply box once embedded:
    Code:
    [GALLERY=media, 2]Bash by Wrye83 posted Jan 1, 2016 at 7:19 PM[/GALLERY]
    [GALLERY=media, 1]Unsure by Wrye83 posted Jan 1, 2016 at 7:13 PM[/GALLERY]
    This is what it will look like once you post the reply to the forum.

    Forum software has been updated. I'm not sure what you guys are seeing with the theme/colors. Secondary colors have changed a bit for me. If anyone has a problem with the theme I think I can make the old one available.

    Haven't noticed anything different with the software yet. If you run into any problems let me know.

    the forum looks great, wrye!!! there's one small item i'd like to see that i've seen on other forums with a similar layout. that would be a link that would take a person to the most recent post instead of the page that the most recent post is on.

    thanks...
