(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="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wallbash.gif" alt="Smiley" title="wallbash" /> Updating the SVN https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1516982086 YaBB Development & Mods/news1 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1516982086 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="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/lipsrsealed.gif" alt="Lips Sealed" title="Lips Sealed" /> <img rel=";&#45;&#41;" src="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wink.gif" alt="Wink" title="Wink" /><br /><br />lg XTC 2.7.00 Alpha now available for testing https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1473176786 YaBB Development & Mods/news1 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1473176786 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="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wallbash.gif" alt="Smiley" title="wallbash" /> ) Prepping to upgrade to 2.7 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1507050017 YaBB Development & Mods/news1 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1507050017 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Wed, 4 Oct 2017 14:27:28 GMT Just waiting to see what bugs Pyragony comes up with today before commiting to having the forum down for however long it takes.
