About an hour ago we changed the captcha to make it more strict (there was still a bunch of spam coming through), I think captchas should work again. Lets us know if you still encounter issues.

Go here:

Follow the links to register for keys for Project Honey Pot and Stop Forum Spam keys. I manage server large Xenforo forums for myself and clients, and these stop spammers dead in their tracks, along with increasing the registration timer from the default 10 seconds. I've set that to 15 seconds, but you'll need to get keys yourself since it requires signing up for accounts (free).

Where did my photo albums go? My entire journal is full of broken links.

Okay, Xenforo by default doesn't have albums. I think they found many people weren't albums in VBulletin so when they formed the new company they didn't include it in core functionality.

Their media gallery addon is albums plus a lot more. If the site purchases the addon at Xenforo, I'll be happy to install it and pull in the VB albums,

The plugin is procured and pending installation.

How do I make my signature show on my posts please? I used to be able to turn it off when posting when I chose but I can't see where to turn it on for my blog posts.

Hi Evie, for what it's worth, *I* can see your signature. There must be a way where *you* can see it.

Or maybe you just have it turned on for all posts at the moment? Better too many posts than not enough posts, amirite.

I am not seeing any signatures at all anymore. I have the setting checked to show them but maybe I missed something?

I'm the same! I can't see anyone's.

Oh, hold on...if Kevin can, that gives an insight. <Boots up laptop>

No signatures on mobile, but I can see them on computer. There doesn't seem to be the option to *not* have them show up automatically, though.

Well, I guess I won't see signatures then. Lol can't remember the last time I logged in here on an actual computer.

I’m not seeing any signatures either. On mobile.

I'm curious to know why you changed the forum format. What is the improvement, if you care to say?

The old vbulletin install was severely outdated and a huge security risk. Newer vbulletin versions are terrible, so we decided to switch to xenforo, which is the best software we’ve found. Also much more mobile friendly now and it should be easier on mods.

This update was a nice reminder that we all get to enjoy the benefit of an anonymous benefactor who maintains and hosts this forum at no cost to the participants and with no advertising. So thanks to those involved!

It’s much shorter now. Would a 12 hour edit window even be appropriate?

I don't have a magic number for how long the edit window should be - but I do know that I often will reread my posts after a few hours of other activities, and then find typos and other corrections that need to be made. So, if not 12, I would suggest a few hours anyway - just from my perspective.

I usually notice my typos a solid week too late to correct. Lol
