You may have noticed things look a little different in a few places here on affLIFT. This afternoon, I updated our forum software, XenForo, to the latest version.



Overall, the update did not change much, but hopefully you'll notice small improvements here and there. For example, you can now include tables in your post, which I am definitely excited about :)

I have a few more features I will be working on over the next week. Our 1 year birthday is in 1 week! 🎉

One feature I am thinking about adding is a giphy search in the post editor so you can easily find and post gifs. Don't want it to get too annoying, but gifs are fun :D

Mark me down as in favor of the giphy search.

Any chance the upgrade changes the 3 char limit on the search? Trying to find posts about AWS is extremely hard w/ that char limit.....

I have found an issue. I have bookmarked lot of posts that I think has some useul info. These old bookmarked posts are missing under the new bookmark tab in my profile. The new ones that I have bookmarked after the software update are only vailable. Please fix it @Luke

Yeah, software has its own native bookmark feature which conflicts with the add-on we were previously using. I’m going to try to figure out if there’s a way to import the old ones today.

There is a big improvement we can do to the search, but it's a bit more intensive so that update is going to have to wait. I'll hopefully be able to get it done within a few weeks. It's also going to increase the forum overhead by about $160/month. Seems insane because it's literally just an improvement to the search, but I've researched and it's the only option. It'll be worth it once it's done though :)
