Sorry, Alandil, it had to be done at some point... For security reasons (the old IPB was not secure), for money-related reasons (we already bought the license - no point in wasting the money), for spam protection (it started getting really really bad over the last few months) and for website development (it is incredibly hard to redo the website and attract new developers and fans when it is essentially a hand-coded hijacked form of the forum system).

Took me a few days to get used to it, but it's like getting around in a foreign country, over time you get better at it. :)

You'll get used to it Aldandil :)
Any news on fixing the post formating buttons (like Bold, Italic etc.)?

Last I heard from Brian was that it seemed hard to solve :P
So, for now we might have to remember the codes =) (You can see a list of them by clicking on the ? in the top right above the editor (it's the one button that seems to work :P ))

I'm currently trying to find a solution on my test server. This seems to be a pretty out-of-the-ordinary issue that we're having. I thought maybe that I missed some JavaScript when uploading the new forum files, but my diffs appear to be clean. I think we're having a larger issue.

I took the time to write a little entry on my blog about the upgrade process. I figured I'd share: http://www.brianstem...wildfire-games/
