    Edit: Postponing the update. Tomorrow na lang.

    Getting ready to upgrade the forum software to 1.5.8 here in about 30 minutes. Forum will be down for around 15-30 minutes depending on the size of this upgrade and my connection speed. This upgrade will fix the issue with the Account Upgrades that was caused by changes PayPal made to their security.

    Some of the bugs fixed in 1.5.8 include:
    • Ensure message length limits are enforced in conversations.
    • Clean up like counts on profile post comments when the comment is deleted or the containing profile post is deleted.
    • Log IPs when a session is created from a "stay logged in" cookie.
    • Fix an issue where content pasted into the rich text editor could have spaces stripped out unexpectedly.
    • When an add-on is updated, make sure JS files are recached as they may have changed.
    • Allow reports for posts that were in a forum that has since been deleted to be viewable.
    • Only allow form textareas to be vertically resizable by default.
    • Attempt to force TLSv1 with connections to PayPal when it's unclear if TLS 1.2 is supported.
    • Make the meaning of certain subscription-related IPN callbacks from PayPal clearer in the transaction log.
    • Allow the PayPal IPN handler to be extended by add-ons.
    • Fix an issue where inserting a spoiler into the rich text editor could lose the current selection.
    • Fix an issue with spoiler tag buttons being submittable if JavaScript is not functioning properly.
    • Remove an unexpected scrollbar from the second (and further) lightbox created on a page.
    • Fix a case where accounts imported from IPB did not authenticate properly if their password contained certain special characters.
    • Respect custom BB codes disabling BB code parsing within when setting up the rich text editor.

    Media Gallery will also be updated to 1.1.7.

    Update to XF 1.5.8 and Media Gallery 1.1.7 completed during brownout. Everything looks good from my end. If there are any issues please let me know here.

    I am updating and making some changes to the Showcase section. Might see a few server errors while I'm doing the update and getting it sorted.

    The Showcase section is updated and working as it should for the most part. A few template/styling issues that need to be resolved but I'm hoping this new forum software upgrade I'm getting ready to install will make finding those issues a little easier.

    Normally I would do the upgrade at night when there isn't as much traffic on the site but my internet (Globe) has been absolute poo and completely unusable from 5pm until around 7am so I have to do this now while I can upload the 3k+ files (only 23MB) to the server in a reasonable amount of time. Not a major update so hoping it will only be down for 15-20 minutes or so.

    Edit: brown out right after I posted that. Not upgrading on a mobile connection.


    .......and never mind, power back on. :banghead:

    ......and brownout again. :meh: (This is what I get for paying my electric bill today.)

    Keep your fingers crossed for no brownouts or crap internet connection during this software update.

    I will be updating the forum software and media gallery tonight. This is not a major update so no issues expected.

    I am sure it is not a major update.....but my extremely slow internet is making the FTP file upload stupid slow. I hope that it doesn't take the 4-5 hours it is predicting at the moment. Once a certain file is uploaded to the server the forum will go offline and show a message saying it is being updated. Upload is at 20% right now after about 45-60 minutes.

    Sorry about the long update this morning. Fell asleep while waiting for the files to upload. Running Xenforo 1.5.14 now.

    I noticed that Xenforo 2.0 (the newest version) is available for developers to download now. Shouldn't be long before they get the finished product out.
