Re: A single click to bright or dark style isaac Yesterday at 07:16 AM
That feature is currently in the works for a future version.

The first part was to create a proper LIGHT and DARK style. This part was recently completed, and can be previewed by choosing it from the style selector below. They will be posted in the style section soon.

UBBT77 - Dark

Re: 7.7.3 Installation / STYLE_IS_ACTIVE Gizmo 01/25/2020 2:46 AM
With all due respect, the amount of time with UBB.threads isn't applicable; Isaac has been with the product just as long as I have, just not in an active development role.

He answered your question by pointing to where the information is that you requested, in the change log (which shows the changes in the new release). If you go to post #2 in the changelog discussion (Direct Link you can clearly see:
New CSS Classes
.shoutintro (Properties for: ShoutChat Box/Page intro text)

This new style class compliments .alt-1 to further customize each of your custom style sheets using the Style Editor. Its not required, but it is available.

Additionally, the changed/new classes were referenced as being in /install/alterstyles-7.6.1.php, which the contents of this file are:
$newstyles['.post-new']['set'] = "background-color:#d30303;
$newstyles['.post.op']['set'] = "background-color:#eee;
$newstyles['.avatar-none']['set'] = "background-color:#eee!important;
color: #666!important;";
$newstyles['#top-button']['set'] = "background:#fff;
height:50px; /* same as width */
width:50px; /* same as height */
border-radius:50px; /* 10px for squared corners */
-webkit-border-radius:50px; /* 10px for squared corners */
-moz-border-radius:50px; /* 10px for squared corners */
bottom:25px /* button location */
right:30px; /* button location */";
$newstyles['#top-button:hover']['set'] = "background-color:#555;";

This isn't a pissing match, and we're here in our own time and on our own dime; everyone can leave their opinions at the door. If you'd like to talk to *official support* and not talk to the developer directly, you're welcome to use the support desk for paid "official" support.

We are in the process of working on official code, and your question was answered, that you'll need to apply the new/changed CSS from the changelog manually to your styles, I fail to see why anything more needs to be said.

PHP7.3+ is regarded as bleeding edge, any errors found on the newest releases of PHP are being tested, but some things fall by the wayside, especially since most users are just hopping on PHP7. We can't just wave a magic wand and see every error fixed, we have to encounter said error and process code to fix it; and again, most users are NOT running these builds (in fact, the CentOS repo, which most Linux users utilize as a RHEL repo only has PHP72 available).

This thread is closed, and OT posts will be nuked as necessary.

Re: 7.7.3 Installation / English Language Files have been updated BellaOnline 01/25/2020 1:45 AM
Having to do this manually is the only reason I saw that mess_reply.php typo entry previously. Normally I don't stare at the text in these files smile.

I will probably get to doing that update in the next few weeks. I'm just very busy right now so a quick fix works better smile.

Re: Typo 7.7.3 temp/mess_reply.php isaac 01/24/2020 11:24 PM
Thank you for this.

The location of the typos is actually in three files within the languages/english/ folder.


The gammer typo was introduced in February 2009 with UBB.threads 7.5.0.
The three typos have been corrected and will be fixed for UBB.threads 7.7.4

Again, thank you for taking your time to be the first in reporting this thumbsup

Re: Subscriptions Question Gizmo 01/15/2020 9:26 PM
I understand you asked that in your OP, but Isaacs initial post outlined that as being an option as step #2 as far as diving into your database (which is generally unsupported officially); to which the direction chosen was troubleshooting what ended up being results from before the system was rewritten.

or 2/
You can also modify the database directly and remove the undesirable lines from SUBSCRIPTION_DATA.
This will also remove the subscription history (and detail) from the forum user's dashboard and the admin's dashboard. This should be a last resort.

Re: Ubb 7.7.3 winkey emoji shortcut issue isaac 01/12/2020 10:17 PM

utf8 - 8-bit unicode transformation format.
mb4 - store at 4 byte characters.
general (or unicode) - refers to the specific sorting and comparison rules.
ci - case insensitive.

utf8mb4_unicode_ci is based on the official Unicode rules for universal sorting and comparison, which sorts accurately in a wide range of languages.

utf8mb4_general_ci is a simplified set of sorting rules which aims to do as well as it can while taking many short-cuts designed to improve speed. It does not follow the Unicode rules and will result in undesirable sorting or comparison in some situations, such as when using particular languages or characters.

There is quite a bit more reading over here:

There are even more recent updates within that link. But be aware that UBB.threads covers an extremely broad range of server setups with wide php and mysql versions. Some are a decade old -- are you still supporting php 5.4/UBBT7.5.4 sites? And some are running the bleeding edge php and mysql versions. The the choice needs to be made on which collations will best cover everyone.

The UBB.threads software has seen a tremendous amount of updates over the past 3 years. Prior to this, it remained near stagnant from 2009 - 2017.

There is no doubt they may already know about a burst of traffic, but you should call them directly and let them know to see if there is anything you can do, and ask them what steps you can take to protect yourself from those attacks.

A Content Delivery Network (such as CloudFlare) generally allows one to set custom firewall rules for your site will allow you to flag different security levels, turn on an "I'm under attack" mode, and generally they even give one free SSL certificates.

Re: Very strange problem Gizmo 01/06/2020 11:14 PM
The "ribbon" bookmarks (or removes a bookmark to) favorited threads; it does not create a new topic (that's what the "New Topic" button is for); his screenshot (and associated behavior) mention that he's bookmarking the thread.

You can see the same ribbon here at the top of the page to the right of the "Hop To" button, it displays on threads and in forums so users can easily manage their watched items.

Sorry. Those pages are not stock UBB.threads code, are not advertised as such, and are unsupported code.

Though, now you have some direction if you choose to peruse similar customizations of your own. thumbsup
