(The downside, this checking appears to slow things down on loading - but the slowness could also be my internet connection.)<br /><br />Ideally all paths to files to be opened should also be cleaned but YaBB's mechanism for opening and closing files is really complex and convoluted.  <img rel="[smiley=wallbash.gif]" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wallbash.gif" alt="Smiley" title="wallbash" /> YaBB News - Updating the SVN http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1516982086/3#3 YaBB Development & Mods/YaBB News http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1516982086/3#3 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (XTC) Thu, 1 Nov 2018 17:52:57 GMT Hi<br /><br />Thx ..... all ok i get it ... it was only a problem with my old browser  <img rel=";&#45;&#41;" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/lipsrsealed.gif" alt="Lips Sealed" title="Lips Sealed" /> <img rel=";&#45;&#41;" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wink.gif" alt="Wink" title="Wink" /><br /><br />lg XTC YaBB News - 2.7.00 Alpha now available for testing http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1473176786/19#19 YaBB Development & Mods/YaBB News http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1473176786/19#19 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Derek Bullock) Sat, 26 May 2018 14:30:55 GMT Thank you.

(The new system does not require duplcate copies of all the little arrows and icons for every template. BUT there are still a few places in the code where YaBB is still looking in the wrong places for things.  <img rel="[smiley=wallbash.gif]" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wallbash.gif" alt="Smiley" title="wallbash" /> )
