    Hopefully the CSS is fixed too.

    Haven’t checked the CSS or HTML for “seperator”, but they still have the tr/td classes for stuff that would be much better as a table in the first place, such as the list of posts in a forum

    This will hopefully be fixed before too long. There’s the minor question of performing low-level operations to convert the contents of the database while the site is running, but that’s part of the fun really

    I've had this problem before on my own website, in callback emails from Paypal/Worldpay too.

    The number of replies in a thread used to be a hyperlink that, when clicked, opened a popup showing a list of posters and their number of replies in that particular thread.



    That hyperlink doesn't seem to exist any more.

    I think someone already said but the bolded number showing you which page you were on has gone and its a right pain checking the URL.

    I have been using the right arrow for 'next page'. It goes when you are on the last page.

    Hoping to get this lot sorted ASAP, folks

    I’ve been distracted by the business of converting the database to UTF-8 without destroying it in the process, which has turned out to be quite complicated, though at least I’ve learned a lot of stuff about MySQL that I didn’t know before. I need to do a little more testing but it’s looking like it’s sorted now, so I’ll be getting the relevant scripts across to admin shortly
