    Hi All,

    I will be taking APUG from vBulletin 4.1.1 to 4.1.7. Mainly 100's of core bug fixes and performance/security improvements. I'll be doing this about 8hrs from the time of this post. We'll be down for up to 1hr.

    Thanks!
    Sean

    Upgrades are complete. As far as I can tell there are no major issues. I am still doing some cleanup that may take a few more hours. If you notice any problems feel free to report them here. One of the main changes you will notice is the new editor. This editor should auto save your writing every so often.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Thanks Sean. All the work you do in the background, and I'm sure it's significant, is greatly appreciated.

    Really love the upgrade, especially the reply box, now to figure out all the neat little icons and how to use them.
    Sometimes being a ludite sucks.

    Finally!... I am seeing bugs fixed! :smile:

    We've had "upgrades" before, but they never seemed to fix long standing issues. But now, there are some:

    - The "Go to last post" links (small down arrow) in APUG Top 10 stats window finally works and takes you to the last post of a thread
    - I also noticed the "Member list" now properly shows icons for email contact links, instead of a wrong "sendpm.gif" text.

    Probably other real fixes as well, but also unfixed stuff :confused: Search is still not working in the APUG Video section, but if I remember it well this wasn't a core vBulletin function. Still gives an error of "Could not find phrase 'media_search_string_too_short'".

    New editor is nice too :wink:

    Confirmed, keyword searching on Videos is finally working too. :smile:

    With over 120 video links now, a search option is getting useful.
