Reverting back to Core is not a really good idea, unless Phil decides to remain with it.  It's a legacy theme from 1.1 branch, and isn't compatible with a lot of 2.0 mods.  There are dozens (maybe hundreds?) of themes available for 2.0, I suggested Inferno because the color scheme is similar to BCM main site.  You can also switch to Curve, which is 2.0 default theme.  Might be a good idea to decide now which theme to use, as some customizations (i.e., the ads) have been done in Inferno, and are time consuming to redo in other themes.

    Here's what I see.   Light grey text (in places) on light grey background.

No idea why you're seeing that, all links pretty much everywhere are red.  Should look like this -

The Curve theme looks ok also

Every time I open this new forum I have to login again.   I never needed to do that before.   After entering my username and password I always click Yes to "Would you like to store your password for busconversionmagazine.com?", but it makes no difference.   It seems that cookies are no longer being generated.   What's up with this?

Tapatalk has not yet been installed on upgraded forum.  We're running it clean to make sure database and basic functionality are ok.


OK. Please post something when this functionality is added back. Hopefully it won't be too long, as that's the most workable way to access the forum for me on the small screen.

I think the problem lies in/with URLs in posts.

John,

I am experiencing the same thing.  Maybe Krash or Phil can resolve this.  Thanks so much Krash for helping us migrate this Forum.  We could not have done it without you.

This prevents us from seeing the images as well.

BoxCar had the most but you weren't far behind. LOL

BoxCar was up there, but I think Zephod gave him a run for the money. Why Cliff would have any is beyond me.

Thanks to all of you for bearing with us during the upgrade and as Phil noted, we will continue working on the Forum until we get it as easy as possible to interact with.   It took many hours but we will get there.

Not sure yet Krash.  Sometimes it takes a while.  I think it is acting the same way when we read the Current issue on the Members drop-down button. It may take a day or two to know for sure.  Thanks and we will let you know if it is the fix we need.

Are you using header login or login window?  Shouldn't have to check 'Always stay logged in' every time.  I can modify the code so all logins are forever, but don't think it will solve this problem.

I initially used the window checked the box and all is good.
