    The contrast is a bit low for some of the text, especially given the font size. For example, the forum in which a particular thread resides in the New Posts search results.

    You can change the font size, [controlA,control+] on my keyboard.

    I wanted to thank the admin for the tweet updates. That helped when I couldn't tell if I was having trouble logging on or if the board wasn't open yet.

    I do find it nice but the only qualm i have with it is the fact that there is no more customization to be implemented onto your profile. Having a choice of backgrounds and colors added depth and creativity to one's writer profile.

    Are there any changes to being a supporter, with the badge being removed with the update?

    I don't think so.

    An exception occurred: Mysqli prepare error: Table 'spider7_wf4.xf_import_log_blogs' doesn't exist in /home/spider7/public_html/library/Zend/Db/Statement/Mysqli.php on line 77

    Do you see this every time you view the blog section? I can view the blogs fine, but I will look into this.

    It happens every time I click on my signature links, and it doesn't matter what browser I use.

    I see. It looks like it's the links themselves that are broken. The blog and entires are still there (He Said She Said for example). While regular forum urls were redirected at the upgrade, I don't think there's any easy way for me to redirect the blog urls. This is unfortunate, but you'll probably have to just change the existing links to the new urls.

    The signature editor won't let me save with any links.

    I just put a test link in my sig and it worked on preview. I'll try it with save.

    So the link works in preview, it saves it OK but then the link is blocked.

    @Cogito @GingerCoffee I think signature links should work now.

    Nope, not working after I reentered it. But I see some work in some sigs.

    Cogito, I managed to get the redirects to work, so your current links should work.

    When you guys try to save the signature, what message does it show? Is it disallowing links or is it a character limit? If it was the later it should hopefully be fixed.

    I can try it again. The links worked in preview, nothing stopped "save" and then the links didn't work in the sig. But wait, let me try again.

    Same thing, everything works except the links in the sig.
    Here's what I posted:
    test
    http://wtfevolution.tumblr.com/

    I tried it again using the BBcode editor but nothing changed

    Now I used the above hyperlink key in the edit menu bar and cut and pasted the result into the sig. The hyperlink icon does not appear on my sig menu bar. But alas, no difference. Again in preview the links are good, just not in the sig line.

    OK, I tried 4 versions.

    And they all work. Yay. Also, the hyperlink symbol is now on the sig menu bar.
