    Hi all!

    As you can see we have finally moved to a new modern forum engine, hurray:)

    However, we still have a lot of work to do. If you notice anything wrong or if you have any suggestions please post it here.

    Here is a current list of things to do:
    1. Automatic language detection - Fixed
    2. Redirect does not work for old subforum links:
    http://forum.adguard.com/forumdisplay.php?25-English-Forums - Fixed
    3. There should be a way to change forum theme (try "Style chooser" on the demo forum: http://xf1.artodia.com/style/simplicity/) - Fixed
    4. Moderators lost their access - Fixed
    5. Broken images in users signatures:
    http://forum.adguard.com/image.php?type=sigpic&userid=30&dateline=1396693844
    6. Nickname color should depend on the user role:
    Red for admins
    Blue for moderators
    Dark blue for beta testers
    Fixed
    7. Not all users can edit their own posts (depends on the forum role?) - Fixed
    8. Not all users can edit their signature (moderators - cannot) - Fixed
    9. Remove "Share This Page" block from the main page (along with facebook and twitter code). - Fixed
    10. Move forum to https - Fixed
    11. Redirect the old RSS links:
    http://forum.adguard.com/external.php?type=rss2
    12. Add thread prefixes: [Solved], [-] etc.
    13. Mention forum section in mail notifications. - Fixed
    14. Add to message editor 'spoiler' and 'quote' instruments. - Fixed
    15. Add favicon - Fixed
    16. Add filter to remove all results in Russian from 'New Posts' - Fixed[color=redИсправлено
    17. Enable merging of the similar posts.
    18. Show total number of messages under the users' avatars. - [COLOR=red]Fixed

    19. Display sub-sections on the main page (you can only see level 1 sections now). - Fixed
    20. Display users registration date below message counter - Fixed
    21. Leave only messages in currently selected language in 'New posts'
    22. Add BB codes for tables

    Ha, I've got lots of awards now! :D

    Anyways, nice upgrade though there's a couple things (I'll update this as I notice stuff)...

    1) Accessing My account from http://forum.adguard.com/index.php?account/ results in a permission error.

    2) All the sub-forums should be made main forum sections. I suspect users will get confused due to the need of multiple clicks per section due to all the nested sub-forums.

    Also it looks like moderators (and admins too, maybe) lost all "power" except for perhaps the test admin account. :D

    I don't envy you guys at all. I've set up multiple forums in the past and it isn't exactly fun. :p

    3) Doesn't have to do with the upgrade/change, but Extensions (Userscripts) should be part of the Filter Rules section or it's own section, IMO. Thoughts?

    Admins still have it, but for some reason two-factor auth is now mandatory, such a pain.

    In any case it should not be just a part of AG for Windows. Moving it to "Filter rules" section makes sense indeed.

    Actually, this makes sense too as, I guess, they don't want to risk admins getting their accounts hacked into. :p

    Eh, that is not default. @vasily_bagirov made it necessary and nobody know how to revert it back:)

    Finally a forum engine with mentions support, love it.

    No, it is required for any admin or it just does not allow even reading.

    Can't change signatures, likely because of the My account permissions error.

    By the way, looks like signature doesn't recognize [td] and [tr] tags. At least in your case :)

    A dark material theme for the forum would be nice to have.

    Ah yes I see it now. I'm going blind in my old age!

    All the dark styles look good. The 'black-responsive' could have the white font less white.

    What I like to see is layered dark greys with some pale colour highlighting. Or at least a little more pale colours when used on the dark or graphite and black-responsive themes.

    Keep up the good work!

    Why the Forum changes?
    I quite liked the old one...

    I couldn't edit the threads I created.....
    And also can't edit Signature.....
