    Hi guys, please let me know asap if you see anything wrong. So far it looks ok. There is an issue with the articles system so I'll have a look at that, and I need a stiff drink! Thanks! Sean

    Went pretty smooth, took about a day to prepare the files, and once that's done you upload and run an upgrade script which takes a few minutes :smile:

    I hear ya Claude. I was a bit concerned this time as we were going up 5 point releases, so it was actually 5 upgrades in one..

    Is there something wrong with the chemistry recipes and articles pages? I'm just seeing blank pages.

    Oops, should have read all of your initial post Sean.

    Best,
    Helen

    Not a problem as such, just a difference...

    Attached Images to forum threads now show as icons and filenames instead of thumbnails.


    Cheers, Bob.

    I don't know if this is upgrade related, but I'm having trouble today with the individual forum listings, and that of all the forums, not updating the display of read and unread threads until I manually refresh the page. I haven't changed any browser settings (that I know of) since before the upgrade, but what I suspect to be the case is that something has change the cache expiration time for those pages, making it long enough I'm getting the cached copy when I return to the page after reading a thread.

    It's not a huge deal to hit "reload" and see the updated page -- it's just different from the (very intuitive and easy) way it worked before.

    It's been doing that to me for quite a while Donald, so it's not upgrade related. It would be nice if it worked like it should but it's not any real problem.

    Bet the gallery section gets fixed before I could get a Wisner lensboard delivered!
