    Bug/Issue Description: All post edit information/history has been seemingly lost.
    Page where issue is seen: Any post which was edited before the forum upgrade now displays no such information.

    Bug/Issue Description: Nav tabs:hover unreadable.
    Page where issue is seen: Every forums page.


    My complaint is primarily about the bottom nav tabs but I'd prefer the text-shadow to be removed from the top tabs too and the color set to #fff for contrast.

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    In user signatures. It was working fine earlier, now it seems to be a frozen image.

    I have a feeling you classify these as the same thing but the Minecraft association is missing in addition to the BukkitDev association.

    The URL "" no longer displays the forums.

    Previous behavior was that "" showed the portal and "" showed the forums. Now I have to visit which is a bit redundant.

    Edit: I guess breaking hearts by force redirecting away from the forums subdomain is a solution. Not the nicest looking solution, but certainly a solution...
    Still doesn't fix the fact that visiting no longer results in the forums index...

    Bug/Issue description: XenPorta dates & titles aren't properly aligned:

    Visible on portal page.

    One of the following BBCodes also used to work, I don't recall which:

    EDIT: While this BBCode works, the "X-Frame-Options: ALLOW-FROM HTTP://FORUMS.BUKKIT.ORG" is going to stop it from embedding properly because the forums are served from the wrong subdomain now

    The point here from the start was to redirect to The fact that it does not redirect to the /forums/ is the bug here and is being worked on

    1) Fixed

    2) This is because the old data was held by a custom plugin. We voted to not used this custom plugin anylonger as this functionality is built into the forums.

    This is a plugin bug. We are not going to alter plugin templates for something small like this.

    I presume you meant to refer to #3 here (rather than the search issue). In any case, you seemingly chose not to transfer across the past edit information to the system provided by XenForo. Did the past system not store enough information for such a transition to be possible?

    There's no need to change the add-on's templates. Adding something like the below to the site's extra.css template would fix the issue:

    .EWRporta_Portal .recentNews .subHeading h2 {
        font-size: 1em;

    Yes sorry I ment #3, however #2 has been fixed as well. The information from the edits was not created by Xenforo and the data did not transfer across, there was too much data saved before. Yes, you can add that to the extra.css however if the plugin updates you can end up with conflicts.

    This has been fixed now.

    This has been fixed

    Template conflicts? No. Styling conflicts? Perhaps - but the addon is unmaintained which looks to me as a pretty good sign it's not going to be updated any time soon in the future.
  16. Bug/Issue: Robot count displayed in online member count
    Page where issue is seen: Main forum page where online members are displayed

    Not the biggest issue in the world, but the robot count didn't used to show and it's kinda irrelevant in my opinion.

    This is an issue with the update. Once a post receives a new like now that we have updated it will update this value to the proper one.

    This is a feature of the update, not a bug

    I know it's not a bug ;) Just more of a suggestion.

    I've added this one. We are trying to shy away from as many manual edits as possible, however I will agree that this one appears that it is not going to update for awhile.

    These should both be fixed now.

    Bug: I ordered a pizza over an hour ago and it still hasn't been delivered. lol jk.

    I haven't had a chance to look at the rest of the code tags, but the java code tag isn't working. I would post a screenshot but its a little annoying to do so on my phone. Other than that, loving the new changes.

    @teej107 sorry about your pizza, Cookie sneezed on it and Tim stood on it so I have to remake it.

    As for the tag, I will quickly check and if it doesn'tdoesn't work I will report to Zeldo.

    1. public void onEnable() {
    2. this.getServer().getPluginManager().registerEvents((Listener)this, (Plugin)this);
    3. this.getConfig().options().copyDefaults(true);
    4. this.saveDefaultConfig();
    5. }

    @ZeldoKavira This one is not though.

    It seems that "syntax" has been replaced with "code".
