UBB.threads 7.7.1 Changelog
Version 7.7.1 includes several critical fixes when used with PHP 7.1 and newer. It is highly recommended that you upgrade from version 7.7.0 to 7.7.1.

UBB.threads 7.7.1 has been released and is now available to download in the Member Area.

Summary of Changes
[UPDATE] CP: Several entry fields in Primary and General configuration settings have been updated to only allow specific entry formats. ex, only number fields can accept numbers as entry. This should further help to prevent incorrect data types from being submitted.
[UPDATE] Updated Private Topics database Subject field from 60 to 255 characters.
[UPDATE] New Reply notifications now display the forum category name in which the reply was made to.
[UPDATE] Reformatted and optimized all CSS files.

[FIX] (PHP 7.1+) CP: Fixed error when in Member Editor when updating a member account and max threads/posts per page field is left empty.
[FIX] (PHP 7.1+) CP: Fixed error when manually approving new members.
[FIX] (PHP 7.1+) CP: Fixed error when exporting a list of email addresses to email.
[FIX] CP: Fixed setting the public posts and private message Subject length to a range outside of 10 to 150 characters in length.
[FIX] CP: Fixed customizing the posts and topics per page to a range outside of 5 to 400 characters in length per member in the Member Editor.
[FIX] Fixed creation of CREATE_NEWS permission columns during new installs of v7.7.0. See the "Special Upgrade Instructions" section below.
[FIX] Fixed email notification where sometimes the salutation would be missing the member name.
[FIX] (PHP 7.1+) Fixed new Member registration error when sending them an email.
[FIX] Fixed display of the Referrer icon (arrow) next to the Member name on the Whos Online page. It now correctly displays only when the referrer is different than your forum's domain.

2019-03-02 UPDATE: has been posted to the Member Area
This patch fixes:
1/ add the missing arguments in the email functions to prevent stack trace errors on PHP 7.1+.
2/ correct the "input=url" issue when attempting to submit changes in the Member Editor if the member has a homepage stored in their profile.
Download and replace (overwrite) the files in your 7.7.1 forums with the files from within this archive.
As there are no new features added, your forum software version will not be changed or updated for this patch. It is intended as a drop-in replacement for the current files. has been updated within the Member Area
This is a release refresh and is intended to fix any previously reported install issues. If you're having problems with the package you've downloaded prior to 2019-03-02, download this main .zip file again. This release refresh also includes within it the patch mentioned above.

Upgrading To The Current Version of UBB.threads 7
The upgrade path from UBB.threads 7.5.x versions continues to be to move to the most recent version of UBB.threads as they become available. Such as 7.5.6 => 7.7.1 There is no need to do an incremental update from 7.5.8 to 7.5.9 to 7.6.0 to 7.6.1...etc. You should update directly from your current UBB.threads 7 version, to the most recent version of UBB.threads.

The UBB.threads 7 Upgrade Guide can be found in the Docs tab in the menu header.

Take note; if you are upgrading from a version prior to the last version, incrementally follow the special instructions listed within /install/UPGRADE_INSTRUCTIONS.txt, from each version just above the version you are coming from. Normally there are no special instructions or they explain a new feature for you to configure.

Special Upgrade Instructions for 7.7.1
The following is only applicable to forums that were freshly installed with the UBB.threads 7.7.0 installer. This code is not applicable to, and should be ignored by anyone who is upgrading from 7.6.2 or an older version, or has installed UBB.threads 7.7.1 or newer.
To manually add CREATE_NEWS forum permission updates:
Separately execute each of these two commands from Control Panel / Database Tools / SQL Command
SQL Query

SQL Query
These two items can be added before or after you upgrade from version 7.7.0.

In case you missed it last week with the initial release of version 7.7.0, new CSS classes have been added.
New CSS Classes
  • .avatar (Properties for: Avatars)
  • .avatar-none (Properties for: Avatar None)
  • .news-image (Properties for: Portal News Image, News Image Picker)

These new style properties have been added to /styles/common.css with their basic settings. You can customize each to fit with your custom style sheets inside the Style Editor (Control Panel).

Stock Styles From UBB.threads 7.7 Series
Beginning with the UBB.threads 7.7 Series, only the current styles will be included within the main archive.
LOCATION: ... install/styles/

UBB.threads styles - New for 7.7.0
  • UBBT77

New style names to be used as of 2019-01-01

[Linked Image]

If you are currently using a stock style from your original UBB.threads 7.5 series install, it is highly recommended that you update to the matching current style from within the Member Area downloads section, or the most recent UBB.threads archive.

Within the Member Area downloads is a section listing for Style Packs. These Style Packs are already included within the main UBB.threads zip archive. They are also being made available independently with the intention of being useful to forum owners still running UBB.threads 7.5 series forums. Ideally, we'd like those older forums to update to the latest version, but we know that you're staying on that version for your own reasons. These Style Packs are compatible with UBB.threads 7.5 and 7.6. There have been zero adjustments made to them to account for the 7.5 series template bugs (which have since been corrected in 7.6). We want your 7.5.x forum to look modern. So at no extra cost, here they are for you thumbsup
