I'm wrapping up testing of the latest version of xF to ensure it works with all of our add-ons. Blogs are coming as well as a few other features that will be rolled out over time. Barring any major issues coming up in the next 2 days, the plan is to take the site down for a couple of hours on Saturday to perform the upgrade. I'll post more info when we get closer to the weekend.

Ditto what Nota said; it's impossible to understate how much time and effort you expend to make DP such a great forum. *hugs*

Will the Blogs feature be able to reinstate our old ones?

If not, would we be able to repost, or at least link them in the new system?

The old ones are already here but they look like a forum now. The upgrade will make them look like blogs again.

To what version will you be updating? I am eagerly awaiting an implemented fix to the bug I've previously noted where pasting text results in spaces inserted at the beginning and end of the text block.

Sounds like they might have fixed it, but only in a beta version?

This should be resolved in the update (fingers crossed).

There are no plans for any additional add-ons. There are new features with the upgrade that will be rolled out over time with Blogs being the first.

Thanks for all you do Red as anyone can see you're constantly on the job until it's done -- many jobs.

I can't access my current last page of my Cadet thread in the military forum. In my browser the current last page is #22.

Here is the message I keep getting instead, as it's been a week of my not being able to access the page, although I can almost always access the thread and any other page of the thread except the current last page, which as I note in my browser is page 22....

Yes, that's my reaction for sure -- very strange indeed.

Okay thx, I'll look forward to hearing from you when you can find out something.
Nothing so far. It looks like there is bad code in a post on the 22nd page. I'll work on this later this week.

Okay, thx.

I'm in China always battling the censors which very likely explains the "bad code," ie, corrupted by an attack of the censors. I have computer security systems of course yet that's what the censors attack first and hardest.

Until recently I used to lose the DP security code connection and have to sign in again, which is all it took for me to reconnect. I haven't had this problem for many months now. So it seems I have a new problem of bad code being executed at a DP page and thread by China censors. Indeed, I was making a positive post about Japan National Defense Academy when the page was disrupted, then and only then -- not an instant before then.

I appreciate your assistance Red in this now. I can handle a lot of the problems myself but my computer security systems being corrupted by Chinese censors is beyond me when it comes to codes I never see or know.

Hi Red,

I still can't access my page 22 of the cadet thread at the military forum.

The no access notice says "due to internal sever error."

Is there anything you can co?
I haven't had time to dig deeper into this, yet.
