It's not compatible with 3.3.0. It's quite annoying if we have to wait for them to update it each time there's a phpBB update. But we'll see what we can do, maybe they're releasing a new version soon.

Today the forum was updated to the latest version of phpBB (3.3.5).
We have removed the Codebox add-on, so you might see some strange formatting in some topics. But it was hardly used, so not a big issue. If you spot any then you can let me know and I'll format them to the regular code brackets.
The forum now uses reCAPTCHA version 3, which is hopefully better in preventing spam.

I have cleared the cache, so it might be a bit slow for a while, should get better over time. If you find any other issues then let us know.

The wiki also got updated to the latest version, but you shouldn't notice anything there, if you do then it's not good :lol:
We did some other security improvements, and we are soon hopefully going to upgrade to a newer PHP version.
About a week ago we moved to a new server, which has more monitoring, a virus scanner and regular backups, that should improve security as well.

Our hosting provider is going to run a security check on our website soon, hopefully we'll pass :)

Hi,

I thought we were becoming a "De Wallen" window.
Was quite exciting to see these things at my age. :lol:
NO no no NO @jph . :twisted:

Indeed, maybe we should create a separate section for this. Or should I say 'Sextion' :geek:

There seems to be an issue with the breadcrumbs or whatever it is called. It shows two extra <.
Not that big of a deal, but I'll see if I can find out why

I've updated the theme, hoping that it would fix the arrows, but it didn't. It set the logo to the default one, I'll fix that tomorrow.

At your age I think a glimpse of ankle would be exciting. Even a woman's :lol:
Maybe at night the whole forum should become lit up with shop windows and virtual coffee shops. :mrgreen:

SSL was updated to version 1.3, it was still at 1.1.

PHP was increased to 7.4, which somehow caused that 'Sim Innovations Forums' to show up. That's on the to-do list.

It looks like all forums issues have now been fixed.
