oops, double post...

It also appears you cant 'quote' a reply and select text to edit, change font,colour etc.

Ive run cocnsistency checks, sql optimer and also theme rebuilds to no avail Sad

Just to correct Andy, I know he's possibly more concerned about the invalid outputs and invalid links but just a small correction on the formatting tools.

Quoting itself does work, as does reply but once you get into your post none of the formatting tools work, nor the smilies, font size etc..

Me and andy are fine as we tend to type our tags manually but most users don't and so they're struggling a bit for anything bar plain text and line feeds. Any ideas?



btw I'm Andy's #2 on our forum

Please see upgrade notes @ FUDforum 3.0.2:

"All JavaScript files were moved into a separate js/ directory. If you have custom themes that overrides the default forum header, please update your tmpl/header.tmpl file and rebuild your themes.".

Apologies for missing that. I've added the js/ in front of the script references in our 2 themes and now the tools are working. Thanks Smile


I think we still have an issue with the invalid outputs still. Any ideas on that one?

I think being hit by bots is a good thing tbh, we do have a lot of knowledge on the forum and it would be a shame if it was hidden away.

Incidentally, I have been on fudforum since 2001 and it's been fantastic and your support is, as ever, truly fantastic. Do fudforum still offer hosting? I seem to remember it was in the past
