    Default Forum upgrade downtime

    The forums will be offline Saturday afternoon UK time for an upgrade. It shouldn't take more than a few hours.

    Upgrade complete. There have been some changes to how signature and post images from certain sites are linked. Also, the search index had to be recompiled. This will take many hours.

    Please post any issues in this thread.

    I think this counts as an issue:

    Yup, a template didn't merge quite right. Fixed now.

    Not sure if it's relevant to the update or not, but my account logs out automatically, despite ticking the ''Remember me'' box. Moreover, when I log in, instead of getting immediately directed to the main index, a message appears saying something about invalid URL. It doesn't happen to any other forum I visit (but there aren't many anyway).

    That's odd. Trying clearing your cookies and cache, restart the browser and see if that resolves the issue.

    I did it, but nothing changed. The weird thing is it happens randomly. For example, in my second visit, I'm not logged in. I don't bother to do anything and leave the site immediately. Then in my third visit, surprisingly I'm automatically logged in, but in the fourth I am not.

    That sounds like an issue your end. Can you try with another browser? What style are you using?

    Mozilla. I checked it in Chrome and the issue persisted. I used the front-page style, so I'll try something else and tell you the results. By the way, now that I logged in, the front-page style had changed (without me doing anything) into the ''Guild'' and the 6 messages glowing in my ''Notifications'' tab disappeared.

    Same thing in Shogun 1 style, I am going to try Shogun 2. Not very optimist, to be sincere. Anyway, it's not a big deal, so nothing to worry. The only thing that startles me is why my notifications suddenly disappeared.
