    I originally found a problem where my posts were being truncated after a single quote or double quote. I tracked that down to an anomaly with vBulletin caused by Apple's "Smart Punctuation" replacing straight quotes with curly quotes. That problem was identified and solved.

    It turns out that ANY special characters can cause this problem If you copy and paste a string from a device that has the degree symbol, the text will be truncated at that symbol. If you copy text from a webpage, many of those have nonstandard quotes and apostrophes. I have written several posts over the last few days, only to find out a substantial portion of what I wrote did not save due to that issue.

    There are a number of threads on vBulletin and other forums discussing this. It seems to affect everyone going from vB3 to vB4 or vB5.

      Mark - I don't seem to be getting my subscription e-mail notifications any more. I had previously had instant subscriptions on for almost all of my threads, but I haven't gotten an e-mail since the upgrade. I logged in and saw I had two notifications for responses. Is there a known issue?

        FYI - looks like it turned my e-mail notification setting to off from what it was before. Not sure if this happened to anyone else.

          Not sure I like this new board. A lot of issues and old one seemed to work fine. Were there complaints about the old one? What was the motivation to change it?

            I am trying to like the new board. I don't mind change, but this is hard to read, and not organized in a way to make finding a topic easy. I personally like a list - one above the next, not side to side. There is also not enough difference in font sizes from the topic header to the underlying subtopics to scan easily, although the vB5 default style is better than the cool blue in that respect. I used to read down the latest post column, but now it is shortened and when i click on "see all" it just takes me to a search page (maybe just not fully set up yet to view all the posts in a chronological order). I agree with the post above that there is too much white. It is hard on the eyes, and probably makes it more difficult to read as well.
            Just my observations

              • Old board software was more than 10 years old
              • Old board look and feel was very dated
              • Old board admin functions were broken
              • Old board was a security risk - Google was sending us version warnings
              • Old board was turning off a lot of newer users.
              Use it for a while. I think it'll grow on you pretty quickly. There are some glitches that we're working through. I think we'll be in good shape in a week or so.

                Try resubscribing to older threads. It's possible that the notifications weren't converted? I've been getting notifications so am not sure if there's an issue.

                  There actually were complaints about the old board. A few months ago there was a thread on the topic.

                  I found a sister thread to provide some interesting insight as well

                  Yesterday was a busy time around here. I have a few thoughts on this. Due to vBulletin no longer patching v3.X for security, this posed a threat, more to HomeSeer

                    Without the ability to mark all forms as "Read" there won't be much that can help (me) I'm afraid. To me, this is the biggest part of what's wrong. Substantially different behavior that I've been whining about for days - and I see others mention this specifically. Haven't seen that anyone(HS Management) truly understands what we are talking about. I'm sure partially because they have a different "Style" of using forums.

                    Many topics things interest me.
                    I do not need to drill down into forums & read specific topics most often.
                    I want to hit "New Posts" and be shown just that - new posts from the entire forum that were posted since I last "marked as read".
                    In the old version - "Marked as read" was global.
                    Marked as read button has now been removed it seems because no one can figure it out (yet) - I have faith in you.

                          I've added a link in the nav bar "Mark All Forums Read". Give that a try and see if it fixes this for you.

                            We're working though an issue regarding posts from Apple products. Apparently, the extended characters are causing these problems. Hang in there. we'll get it fixed.

                              You will need to go to settings on your iPad and turn "Smart Punctuation" off. That iOS feature turns single and double quotes into special curly quotes. vBulletin doesn't handle HTML special characters. You may also find the same problems with text you copy from devices or other websites. Hopefully there is a workaround for this as it can kill a post when you save it. It will look OK until it is saved, then all of the text following the special character is gone.
