Now we're into the conversion utilities using data from some 'big' boards that have also been upgraded many times. (Amazing what glitches slip in over time when there are thousands of members and hundreds of thousand posts.)<br /><br />New changes to 2.7 - checking that board names are unique when tested lowercase. Having board names that rely on case sensitivity can cause data loss when the forum is moved to a case insensitive OS (like most Windows installs).

(Currently this involves moving away from using 'fopen' and 'fclose' as those violate the rule against using 'bareword filehandles'. I am still researching as to whether or not the file locking mechanisms in fopen and fclose are even necessary with more modern versions of Perl and modern server software.)<br /><br />Admin.pm may end up getting split into parts - it contains a lot of pieces that are infrequently accessed. Moving those out should make the AdminCenter load faster.
