SITE OFFLINE SATURDAY 10 AM Eastern (14:00 UTC) - software upgrade

Post by LadyGeek » Fri Aug 11, 2017 7:53 pm

The site will be offline Saturday, 10 AM Eastern (14:00 UTC) to update the forum software. We're moving to the latest version of phpBB, version 3.2.1.

This is a major release, there are a number of new features: phpBB • Free and Open Source Forum Software

- "Clever Quotes" - Quoted posts now contain links back to the source post.
- Emoji's are supported.
- Board icons now use the Font Awesome icons

Our sister Canadian forum has already updated to phpBB 3.2. You can get a sneak peek of what to expect in the upgrade announcement: We're now running on phpBB 3.2 - Financial Wisdom Forum

(This thread is posted in the Forum Issues and Administration forum, but appears in all forums.)

Good luck with the upgrade. From my experience in doing such, I know it's always a bit nervous-making. Thanks for all you (and the other admins) do.

Feel free to look at our sister Canadian site: Financial Wisdom Forum

They have an excellent wiki: finiki, the Canadian financial wiki

I see that there is a sorting and display option at the bottom of the page. Is that new?

It was there all along, but as a drop-down list. The new icons are helping readers see features better.
