Upgrade from 7.6.1 to 7.7.5
Besides many bug fixes and compatibility with new server software there are many changes to the user experience.

Some items are:
  • New image viewer for galleries and image attachments.
  • Auto YouTube Video Embedding using just its URL.
  • Likes system with Likes summary pages for threads and users.
  • Login using Email Address or Login Name.
  • Automatic image orientation fixes for post attachments.
  • Attached images can now be embedded directly in to posts.
  • Social Profiles have been added.
  • Portal and Active Topics pages now have an Expander toggle.
  • Identicons for members without avatars or anonymous users.
  • Private Messages/Topics can now be emailed, so a recipient can keep a copy of their PM/PT offsite using their own email service.
  • Inline display of attached PDF documents.


In addition there was some changes to buttons and locations

For example;
FAQ has been moved to the bottom right and it is now named FORUM HELP

The report post and email post when viewing a post has moved to the top right area
It is a grayed out flag and triangle turned sideways with 3 dots respectively they are clickable.

The like button is now where the old email post button was.This button is not the same like button for facebook. It is to post a like for a topic for posts on this forum only.
