This new version of UBB is somewhat different looking. I am sure we will all eventually adapt to it, whether or not we really like the look. There are several improvements made in this version. One very important one fixes some MySQL issues. We have been temporarily unavailable on a few occasions because of issues with our databases been corrupted. Hopefully the update will help prevent this issue. Here are some of the other items in this update:

• Attached images can now be embedded directly in to posts.
• Social Profiles have been added.
• Portal News Body Image (News Block).
• Portal and Active Topics pages now have an Expander toggle.
• Identicons for members without avatars or anonymous users.
• Toggle to require HTTPS for hotlinked inlined images and avatars.
• Lookup Services are now customizable.
• New Content Transition tool for HTTP => HTTPS.
• Improved Follow/UnFollow toggle icons.
• Post List now shows more post details on mobiles.
• Many updates to post_side and post_top pages.
• Text editor will now grow to the entire size of a post
• URL Host for links to external URLs can now be displayed.
• Multiple PHP 7 and MySQL 5.7+ code fixes.
• Cleanup of several scripts, templates, CSS files, and UBB JavaScript files.

I'm sure this will be an improvement even though I don't care for the look. To me the old Forum look was much more friendly looking but then I'm old and don't care for change.

Hello All, Dave about half of what you posted is Greek to me, but sounds good. Rich, looks OK to me, seems the colors are brighter.
