This was caused by the new WYSIWYG editor, I think.  SMF's version of WYSIWYG is famously buggy though, so I've disabled it, at least until SMF 2.1 is released (which may be some time...).

I'm happy to apply it on the server, if you can give me a patched version of the relevant js file.

Okay, I give up.  I've compared every file in the AGS and AGSCompact themes, and they're identical except for a few lines of CSS.  I've tried replacing the whole AGS theme folder with a copy of the AGSCompact folder (so zero differences), but the editor issue still appears.  As a workaround I've reset everyone's theme to AGSCompact, so at least no one will experience this anymore...
If someone wants to try to debug the issue, I'm happy to give them access to the AGS theme again.  If you have the AGS theme set, there is a JS error in the console, which then disappears if you change theme to AGSCompact (even when the files are identical...).

What about now?  I switched you to use the other display theme (AGS Compact).  I'm wondering if that could be related somehow, since I use AGS Compact and have no problems with the post editor...

SMF has built in hacks for Opera, among other browsers. It's very old software, from the days before web compatibility was as (relatively) standardised as it is today. And unfortunately it's the best solution for our requirements, so not easily replaced.

I'll try changing the input method used tonight.

Unfortunately the WYSYWIG editor built in to SMF is quite unreliable.  I reenabled it because of a bug that was stopping smileys from working in the alternative we used to use.  However, at this rate it looks like having no clickable smileys is preferable to so many other things not working.
Sinitrena at least, the level of WYSYWIGness you get is a setting in your user profile.  There you can choose whether to display smileys, text options, etc etc.  Try changing that setting, see if it helps?
Also the spam is caused by my removing a plugin that was previously used explicitly to prevent spam.  I thought it might have been causing the registration issue, so was going to try running without it for a while.  Will have to renable it!

Okay, so I've made quite a lot of changes to the forums in the background, to fix the registration, plus various issues people probably never even noticed.  Please do let me know of anything that's missing, or weird looking, though.

I'm working on it.  Unfortunately the forums have been going for so long, and been upgraded so many times, things are a bit of a mess.  I'm trying to clean things up, but it might take a few days!

I'm currently working refactoring the website.  I'll try to take your requests into account!

You people seriously need to find something more interesting to worry about.

I hid the forum because it wasn't being used anymore, and its definite end is in sight. It's not the first time that's happened, but for some reason now it's considered noteworthy...

Yeah, last time it was caused by someone using non standard characters.  Like copy pasting from Word inserting their magic quotes and stuff like that.  I'll send you a PM with my email address, and you can send me the content of the post you were trying to make for debugging.

The perfect punishment would be leaving his post unedited and damning himself publicly with his own words.

What happens to Mods is a separate issue.  Until then I edited out the part people have explicitly complained about, and that is most likely to cause immediate offense and upset.

Readded you as author.

I responded to your PM.

If it's a bug (rather than a deliberate feature or easter egg), it's one in the core SMF software.

Today is also my 17 year anniversary of using AGS, so hooray for that.

I had this same problem a few months ago, and the guy was insistent he had all the questions correct.  He didn't...  All I can suggest is someone guides him through the process if he's really that stuck.

Search is already fixed.  It'll go out In the Next Release™,

The only thing that would make sense in my eyes is to support direct image uploading in the forums. But that would cause even more traffic and generate costs for AGA and so on.

I can do that.  Bandwidth isn't really an issue.

It would make a lot more sense for images to be hosted here, where basically they'd stay until AGS is no longer a thing...

That 22 EUR price for was either false or a pricing error. I've determined costs for the entire project and it looks like it'll come to about $250 AUD/year. I'm going to look into it further after work tonight.

Hosting doesn't cost that much...  You can do it for under a hundred easily.

Regarding alternative domains, I appreciate the offers. I'm going to go with anyway. One of my goals is to have short URLs for images. Admittedly, we could go with something like "", but "" is just so much clearer and two characters shorter.

I'm curious why you think the length of the URL actually matters?  It's not like you need a short URL because it's going to be part of an advertising campaign or something.  If you're posting inline images on a forum no one really needs to ever see the image's URL...  Just because Imgur does it, doesn't mean it's necessary in this use case.

Wow.... a 33 minute download time... That takes me back...

The version of SMF we're currently running doesn't support SSL.  As such, if I turn it on a fair amount of forums functionality (images at very least) will break.  I am planning to do an upgrade when I get the time, but given this is a production environment it's not something I want to do in a rush.
