    In preparation for fixing a few issues on the website I upgraded the base software tonight. In a quick check it appears everything is working as it should. However, if any one finds a new issue please let me know in this forum board.

    Thanks!

    And here’s something I was hoping the site software update would fix: The site’s not updating post records for me (the user and time/datestamp) on the Forums page, even on posts I myself have contributed to. I’m using Chrome.

    It does, however, update the timestamp on the individual forum page whence the topics are accessed.

    .

    Ashe, I’ll run a maintenance script. That helped with the problem for a while before. I’m not sure what keeps causing that problem.

    Further updates:

    Installed security plugin and did a site scan. No malware detected.

    Installed and paid for subscription to help with the spam accounts that are being created. I’ve used this plugin in other places and it seemed to keep the numbers down. I’m hoping it will do the same thing here.

    Deleted about 60 spam accounts. None of which have ever posted. I’m hoping no legitimate accounts got caught in the purge. if so, please recreate your account!

    Updated forum software.

    Updated theme.

    Thanks for all the work you’re doing, Jam! I’ll tell you in chat if the timestamp updates on the Forums page.

    You get to the point where you can spot a spam account pretty quickly, but I’m thankful you’ve found a plug in that will take care of most of that.The site is looking good.
