The ability to email posts (and threads) is no longer available as before. It was at the bottom of the post as a button along with Reply and Quote.

Good observation. Looks like they moved it. In the blue bar just above the post click on the "v" (down arrow) at the right and choose "Email Post". I just tested it and it worked.

Christ is in our midst!!

John,

I can't seem to find a function we used to have wherein we could access all of our past posts. What am I missing?

When logged in click on your name, then click on the 'cloud' and the total number of posts in the blue area just under your name and location.

Is it possible to secure the site? My browser always reads, "Not Secure" before the URL, and it makes me a bit uneasy before logging in.

Yes. Better securing the site has been on my list for a long time. I'll get to it at some point.

Follow up. v7.7.4 was released back in March, and I just got to installing it last week.

Today they released v7.7.5. So at some point I'll upgrade to that.

OK. Upgraded to v7.7.5. The Ultimate Bulletin Board software design crew have the upgrade process down to a science. Close the board, upload the files, and click upgrade. And it's done.

Now, please let me know if you run into any issues. Thanks.
