    XF 2.2 Best upgrade path from PHP 5.6/XF 1.4.2 to PHP 8/XF 2.2

    More or less all sorted now. Gotta say, apart from a few relatively minor niggles, upgrading from XF 1.4 and PHP 5.6 to XF 2.2 and PHP 8.0 went a lot more smoothly than I'd feared it would. Got a few things to sort out with out of date template mods and the like, but overall it's been breezy...

    XF 2.2 Best upgrade path from PHP 5.6/XF 1.4.2 to PHP 8/XF 2.2

    Thanks @Xon and @Chris D , I went with editing the source file after all. All upgrade steps have now run up to version 2.2.5 on my PHP 8.0 system. I've a different problem now - logging in takes me to xf/login/login which is a 404 on my PHP 8.0 system, but a 303 (See Other) on my PHP 7.4...

    XF 2.2 Best upgrade path from PHP 5.6/XF 1.4.2 to PHP 8/XF 2.2

    Yeah, there's no PHP 7.4 alternative on my PHP 8.0 host. I think maybe the solution is to take a fresh dump from the PHP 7.4 installation I've already upgraded on localhost, and import that into the new PHP 8.0 host.

    XF 2.2 Best upgrade path from PHP 5.6/XF 1.4.2 to PHP 8/XF 2.2

    INSERT INTO xf_option (option_value, option_id) VALUES ('[]', 'registrationWelcome') Actually, judging by a different old thread, this is more appropriate. (https://xenforo.com/community/threads/user-registration.142288/#post-1219779) Edit: well, I guess I need some other defaults too...

    XF 2.2 Best upgrade path from PHP 5.6/XF 1.4.2 to PHP 8/XF 2.2

    This worked fine on my PHP 7.4 localhost. But trying to upgrade on my PHP 8.0 host I get an error running upgrade to 2.0.0 Beta 7, step 1. The line itself is: if (is_array($optionValue['messageParticipants'])) I've seen some similar errors linked to addons, but this doesn't appear to be...

    XF 2.2 Best upgrade path from PHP 5.6/XF 1.4.2 to PHP 8/XF 2.2

    But XF 1.4.2 doesn't work on PHP 8. I've already tried that; I can't even get a login to work. Are you saying that if I upload the upgrade package it'll just bypass any of the XF 1.4.2 stuff and should work just fine?

    XF 2.2 Best upgrade path from PHP 5.6/XF 1.4.2 to PHP 8/XF 2.2

    Hi, I'm trying to move vhosts and upgrade XenForo in the process. My current (old) host is PHP 5.6.35 and I am on XenForo 1.4.2 (both quite old and unsupported). The new host is PHP 8.0.7, and I want to upgrade all the way to the latest version of XenForo (huzzah!) I have a localhost...

    SoundCloud

    Installed this and it works well. It doesn't seem to pick up "Start at" times - e.g. https://soundcloud.com/video-game-sound-tracks/sega-genesis-sonic-the-hedgehog-green-hill-zone#t=0:29 - but that looks like a Soundcloud issue.

    YouTube embedding no longer working in Chrome

    This now appears to have fixed itself. YouTube embedded videos are appearing on my site again. Very peculiar.

    YouTube embedding no longer working in Chrome

    I've noticed some other XF forums where YouTube embeds seem to be working for me, and they're using: <iframe width="500" height="300" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/wXRtpMtZFUI?wmode=opaque" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> That looks like it maps to the solution I mentioned...

    YouTube embedding no longer working in Chrome

    Tell you what's strange; the video above is working for me. Maybe I am not on the most recent version of XF, although I thought I was (I'm on 1.1.3). Will try updating this evening...

    YouTube embedding no longer working in Chrome

    I don't think that's the problem. I've restarted Chrome and was using Incognito in the first place - plus it's being reported by other forum users. I think it must be related to the most recent Chrome update, as it's only seemed to start happening in the past 24 hours or so. I saw a...

    YouTube embedding no longer working in Chrome

    Has anyone else encountered this? From today or so, embedded YouTube videos are no longer appearing when viewing in Chrome. The console says: Refused to display 'http://www.youtube.com/v/AV1pjNqudf0&fs=1' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'SAMEORIGIN'. I assume it's something...

    Design issue Many icons need to be flipped horizontally for RTL languages

    Whether they are abstract concepts, you'd still want users of the software to view them comfortably. For example, if I see a pencil icon in an interface, I expect it to be angled like this: / If I were to see a pencil like this: \ it would feel uncomfortable to me, as if it were against the...
