This is a mini release of sorts, who purpose is to offer the latest & hopefully more stable version of FUDforum 2.5.0 for weekend testing ;)

Despite the short time since RC1 this release contains MANY fixes & improvements. I've broken the list of changes into Bugs & Features to make it more readable.


  1. Added an alternative to aggregate_methods() for PHP installs where this function is not available.
  2. Fixed a bug with subscribe to topic link
  3. Fixed errors in some translations
  4. Updated the French, Portuguese & Russian (CP-1251) translations
  5. Fixed warning on polls without options
  6. Fixed a bug in upgrade script that forgot to create search_cache table.
  7. Fixed undefined variable in flat thread listing
  8. Fixed a number of bugs on selmsg form
  9. Fixed a bug that caused the 'online list' to be hidden in some cases.
  10. Added missing input validation to search code.
  11. Fixed a bug with custom tag generation.
  12. Fixed query error when email confirmation key is not valid.
  13. Fixed a possible query error when marking the forum read.
  14. Fixed a bug with online theme editor, preventing editing of forum.css.tmpl
  15. Fixed missing variable definitions in the installer.
  16. Number of other minor fixes.


  1. Added RDF/RSS feed that allows syndication of forum's data. Sample parser could be found in script/ directory.
  2. Added code to allow admin to be notified on new user registrations on forums where new accounts must first be approved by the admin.
  3. Added an option that allows disabling of user image in the profile.
  4. Added code to allow forum moderator to be notified of new messages in moderated forums (messages must 1st be approved before appearing to rest of forum users).
  5. Added code to remove duplicate variables from GLOBALS.php
  6. Added post submission buttons to the bottom of preview for easy access.
  7. Added option to allow you to enable php's native zlib compression to compress forum's page. Very useful if you do not have access to mod_gzip or alike.
  8. Added checks to ensure max file upload size does not exceed PHP's native upload limits.
  9. Added .htaccess that does some php config tunning for Apache servers.
