This week, EngineThemes would like to release the latest ForumEngine version 1.6.5. This version focuses on fixing bugs including site display, security and content submission.
In the previous version, the menu on the header of the site is duplicated, like this:
There are two Ideas column showing at the same time, causing confusion. Therefore, in ForumEngine theme version 1.6.5, this issue is fixed, giving a relevant menu display.
Enter email to reset password
Before, when the user clicks on “Forgot your password”, a form “Enter your username or email” appears. However, when the username is entered, the form raises the error “Please enter a valid email address”.
To help users easily reset the password, the username is not used when claiming the password. Instead, only email is required with the popup “Type your email and we’ll send you a link to retrieve it” (see image below).
Before, when a user writes a URL in comment box, the system converts this in a clickable link. However, the first letter of the following word is also formatted as a link, like the first letter “H” in the image below:
This latest ForumEngine version has solved this improper hyperlink bug so that the letter “H” in the above image is formatted as a plain text.
Thread viewing without login
In the back-end has the setting which allows admin to choose specific categories user can view without login.
For instance, in the image below, Customizing is chosen, which means users can view threads in this category with no need to log in.
However, there is a login bug when a category has small categories in it. For example, thread in category A can be viewed without account login. B is a subcategory of A.
For threads in category A, users can read without login. Thus, for subcategory B belonging to A, users should be able to view without login too. However, users have to login to view thread in B.
In this version, that issue has been fixed. Now non-logged in users can see thread in category B without login.
With these new improvements, we hope ForumEngine version 1.6.5 would better cater for your demand. If you have any question while updating ForumEngine version 1.6.5, you can send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our technical support staff will help you solve the concern.
