Just a heads-up that I'll be taking the website down tonight in order to upgrade to the latest version of Xenforo, the forum software we use. I plan on taking it down at 10pm UK time, and I anticipate we'll back online before 11pm.

In case you're wondering what's new in the latest version of Xenforo, I've listed here what I think might be of interest to members:
  • New Suggestion, Article and Question style forums
  • Updated rich text editor
  • User profile banners
  • Username change requests
  • Search forums (means we can display related threads from across different forums in a new forum)
  • Writing before registering support
  • Progressive web app
  • Activity summary emails (possible replacement for our newsletter format)
  • Style archive import and export
  • REST API additions
  • Profile post attachments

And we're back up and running!

I ran into an issue with the icon set we were using, so I've had to use a different set for now, I'll try to figure it out over the next few days and iron out any other glitches I find. Anything else strange please report it here.

Good job on the upgrades. (y)
The "Search" function when using keywords seems not to be in any specific order.
Just as an example, if I wanted to post on the "What are you watching" thread, the results seem to be in no obvious order.
Ideally, they should be sortable in "last posted to" order.
Is this a "feature"?

Thanks @trendie - looking now, the results don't seem to be ideal. So I'm performing a re-index now, should take about 10 minutes max. Let's see if that makes it any better. In terms of ordering, it's currently done by relevance which is kind of subjective, but you can order by date and other ways via the Advanced Search on Threads. I do think it's one of the few areas that vBulletin handled better, perhaps it'll get an upgrade in due course.

What about the black theme so overdue ?! 😉 Don’t want to pressurise you @Sharky but its arrival is more expected than the comeback of Jesus ! 🤪

Haha, not long to wait now.. half term and the kids got a bit in the way, but it's almost ready for the limelight, just need to tweak the colours now. Should be live in the next few days.

I didn't realise it was selectable yet :ROFLMAO: nevermind, so you can probably test drive it from the button at the bottom left that says T2W and change this to T2W Dark, or via your profile settings. Thanks for the feedback, I know what you mean about the links, I might try making them white or a lighter red colour. It's easy enough to tweak.
