Hmmm

I can't see the usual editor commands, just a minimal html interface.  Is this just me or another forum "upgrade"?

I have no problems with other IPS boards - just this one.

Can't you just fix instead of telling me that other users have the same problem?

In an effort to fix the problem from within our software here, I have removed and reinstalled our skin, tried reverting to ip.board default theme, and no matter what I do, hover, dropdown and editor BBCode items do not come back.

I hope that whatever broke them will be fixed by IP.Board/Invision Power Board as they can. If these were disabled because of security issues (since they were security patches, I would imagine so), I hope IP.Board/Invision Power Board will come up with fixes that will give us both security and the the features we love.

I have done all I can for now.

I am sorry if some folks are unhappy. Security trumps features in this case.

We will have to wait on IP.Board/Invision Power Board.

Short answer, No it can not be fixed.

Sorry. I don't fix anything around here. I don't do windows either. I was just letting you know that there are quite a few issues. Repairs by the powers-than-be are pending.

Have a nice day.

Much like Windows, IPB software gets worse at every iteration.
