    I found something. When replying to a post (Reply With Quote), there is no Go Advanced button. And emoticons don't work. They show but don't function.Again, Chrome and Windows 10
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate presence, and demonize the future.

    I get no recognition of using any key to create a new line when i write replies................the text seems to follow some type of "wrapping" system

    Sorry, Maciamo, but now when I post the tools bar doesn't appear, and I can't create paragraphs.

    Can't login from Firefox. I'm logged in using safari, but in Firefox when I enter my password, the characters aren't hidden by the little black dots as I type them and when I click submit I get a wrong password error in spite of the value being right.

One solution would be to upgrade to vBulletin 5, but despite the fact that it has been released for nearly 5 years, it has much less plugins than vB 4.

I am not sure there is a plugin to give + or - votes for individual posts either. vB4 is generally regarded as better than vB5, and that's why most other forums still use it. Another possibility would be to get XenForo or IPS instead. That's something we could discuss here.

    The tool bar doesn't appear in advanced either. If it at least appeared there it would be fine.

    I have contacted vBulletin's support as there are many issues that need to be fixed. If they can't be fixed then I will get XenForo instead of vBulletin.

    I have created a new test style and everything seems to be working fine. So it means there is a conflict in the current style. I just need to find it.

    I have recreated the same design as before on a fresh template and set it as the default style. Now hopefully everything should be working fine again for everyone.

    Note that the signatures, which hadn't been working for years, are working again too!

    There is only one thing that cannot be fixed because of an vB incompatibility with the new version of Chrome. When you use 'reply with quote' in Chrome, the space bar will not work. There are two ways around it though:

    1) Press enter twice.
    2) Or type a . (period, full stop), then go back left with arrow and type normally before the dot.

    In both cases the space bar should work again. Maybe this bug will be fixed in a later version of Chrome.

    The trick is not to write at the end of writing space. It is hard to know because it is invisible. As Maciamo said, make a period, put cursor before it and start writing.

    Maciamo, forum is working fine except that on the left hand side the scripts seem to overlap.

    Also, when I type in eupedia.com it still flips to https and says it's an unsafe script. Once I say to allow it and click on forum it's o.k.

    So many problems by just moving to another server.... I hope that in few decades no person will do any programming and all would be an AI affair; as far as I have seen such people is uncapable to see beyond their own nose.

    I have now enforced redirection from https to http for the whole website.

    I am not sure what you mean by the scripts seem to overlap on the left hand side. What scripts? Could you send me a print screen?
