I postponed my upgrade from 7.0.2 to 7.1B4 until tonight.

Another Question:

I noticed that the "details" for "Who's Online" almost always seems to list a bunch of spiders from Yahoo!

Does that mean that you have checked: Enable Spider-friendly URLs? (Primary Settings > General tab)?

I currently keep this unchecked (which was the default). Does this mean that I am actually blocking the spiders or just that I am not benig friendly to them and they come crawling anyway?

Thanks!

I would advise ticking it - the difference being that your URLS will then look like

https://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/173872/Main/38820/#Post173872

as opposed to containing other characters - the / replaces them, and assists spiders in crawling your site.

However not all servers can display these - so if you get issues, then deselect.

If a user matches a "useragent" they will be defined as a bot; this setting is completely independent of spider friendly URLs and simply means that a bot is accessing at least your homepage.

Spider Friendly allows spiders an easier route of transversing your webspace; nothing is to say they will be completely blocked, but nothing guarantees they'll have an easy route of spidering your forums.

Another benefit of Spider Friendly is that your URLs to posts will be MUCH shorter.

I upgraded to 7.1B4 just today.

Issues:

1. For the three new stylesheet classes (.newtotal, .popup_content, and .post_buttons) my template is blank. I may have made a mistake somewhere but I expected an updated generic template to be loaded with the upgrade to 7.1B4. That soes not seem to have happened. So these classes are still unstyled and I do not know what to put into those fields. Can someone please 1) post examples from their UBB.threads 7.1B4 or 2) tell me what specfic files I need to load that were not loaded as part of the upgrade. [I had deleted all the templates except the one I want users to use.] If I click on the "copy" within the styles edit link to copy in the default nothing happens.

2. In each post I see the remaining icons for "Edit", "Reply" and etc. but immediately followed by the new hyperlinked text for the same functions. Both appear to work.

The board is up and running so overall the upgrade went ok.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Still trying to figure out if there is a way to auto update styles. Not exactly sure that's possible yet as the defaults might not go with the custom styles at all, but working on it.

Here's what comes with the default style:

.newtotal

font-size: 8pt;
color: red;

------

.popup_content

border: 2px solid #BBBBBB;
background: #EEEEDD;

-------

.post_buttons

border: 1px solid #AAAAAA;
font-size: 9pt;
font-weight: bold;
color: #357082;
background: #DDDDBB;
padding-left: 2px;
padding-right: 2px;


As for your image problem. First, make sure you've uploaded the contents of the images/generic/default and default_dark folders. We've updated the images in those folders for the post buttons. If you're still getting the old images, then do a shift-reload on your browser and that should force the new images to reload.

When you upgrade these wil be blank, this is normal behavior and is up to the admin to update them.

The default template isn't updated however, which is a shame, but I suppose it's because some people just customize their default template and Rick didn't want to just overwrite it.

If you see the old icons still it's a cache issue, try clearing your browser cache and the old images will be replaced.

My custom code fr my stylesheets:
Code
.newtotal {
font-size: 8pt;
color: red;
}
.popup_content {
border-top: 1px solid #808080;
border-left: 1px solid #808080;
border-right: 2px solid #808080;
border-bottom: 2px solid #808080;
background-color: #95AAC9;
padding: 4px;
}
.post_buttons {
border: 1px solid #000000;
padding-top: 0px;
padding-bottom: 0px;
padding-left: 2px;
padding-right: 2px;
font-size: 8pt;
background: #95AAC9;
}

Rick,

Both issues resolved. And within 10 minutes of when I first posted the summary of the problems! Talk about speedy results!

I copied in the default style for the three new classes and uploaded the images/general directories. I don't know how I missed that one.

Thanks!!!

Jake

PS: Thanks also to Gizmo!

If you private tester ones are upgrading without any problems, then the chance of me having a problem when the time comes should have the same "no problem" results?
