Bug Official Forum Bug Thread

This thread is for bugs only. If you encounter broken, existing functionality please post it in this thread. If someone has already posted in this thread the same issue you are experience, please don't duplicate report. OT posts will be removed.

Current bugs:
Broken Links-we have a tool that will hopefully help fix the broken links issue. It's a relatively new third party tool that we haven't be able to test so we can't guarantee it will work but we are making every effort. It is serve intensive so again, scheduled for over the weekend for minimal user impact.

Fixed bugs:
Auto logout and new thread indicator issue changed to allow this functionality to be controlled via the database rather than cookie/session time outs fixing the issue that some users were experiencing.
Polls attached to correct poll threads.
New users who had posts attached to wrong users
Ability to upload images in signature
Search Index
Broken Links in Social Bookmarks

Not bugs, but changes we have made:
Removed animated post icons
Moved all but one animated smilie off main smilie box
Altered vbulletin code to allow a larger font size in the basic editor
Raised PM limits
Put in a compromise solution on editing (see new announcement, will be posted soon)
Added more options on how many posts in a thread you can view on one page, user configurable in usercp.
Expanded the amount of threads viewable on the front page of forum to 35 threads. This is actually more than the old forum because it doesn't take stickies into consideration in that number anymore.

I will try to update this post as things are fixed or changed.

Auto saving of sent PMs has been unchecked by default now to help people control the number of PMs they are saving as per a user request. So now if you want to save a copy of your outgoing message in your sent folder, you must click the button at the bottom of your new PM under Miscellaneous options to do so.

Not a bug per se, but we removed the think blue box line that was around avatars. I don't remember who requested it, but it's gone now.

All posts have suddenly become unread. I only have bold posts everywhere.

Can this have something to do with me using another computer from the same IP simultaneously and reading the forum without loggin in? (one comp logged in and one not)

THe green dot for unread posts rarely seems to work, or update. Posts also remain bold for some time after I have read them. At least compared to the old forum. In the old one it only happened occasionally. Now it seems to be the norm

No, it's due to a reset of some forum parameters to mitigate the autologout problem. See the moderator forum reply to you on another thing.

Default Flash Chat, minor bug

Under Firefox 3, if I click the down arrow right of Quick Links only the first row of the table of likns displays. The other rows seem to be hidden by the Chat View.

In trying to respond to a lengthy PM the site shrinks down all text to microscopic levels. Changing the font size in the PM window does nothing. See below screenshot.

...and then it didn't do it again when I went back in to reply after posting about it here. So maybe it's just something really spotty.
