    XF 1.5 An unexpected error occurred. Please try again later.

    It sounds like you're experiencing domain resolution issues in the first instance. When I go to your domain I do seem to be hitting the new server. So that's a good sign. If I go to: I see a database error. The source of the page says: <!-- Mysqli prepare error...

    MG 2.1 images not resizing?

    The config setting is mentioned in the manual and most likely isn't required. It is only required for very large images - we're talking about dimensions in the region of 4,500 x 4,500. If smaller images are still not being resized, then it will simply be a misconfiguration of permissions and...

    As designed Uploaded image dimensions are never checked

    Can you please be more clear about the issues this is actually causing? Because as far as I can tell, you're suggesting that we always reject images that exceed the maximum width/height - that's not at all what the aim of the max width/height is. The whole idea of the max width/height is we...

    XF 2.1 Cache Phrases Globally

    Nope. Very rarely. Phrases used in templates are compiled into the template for each style/language combination so caching them have no benefit. Out of over 9,000 phrases in the master language, we globally cache less than 100 of them. The ones that are globally cached are significant - they...

    Duplicate No Warning Overlay?

    It is deliberately so. It’s a fairly large and complicated form so it doesn’t feel appropriate for an overlay.

    XF 2.1 Unsecure warnings from images for URL unfurl

    This is what the image proxy feature is for. If you do not have it enabled, then you should have it enabled in order to ensure they can be served without problem.

    Awaiting feedback Return HTTP 503 causes XenForo to be virtually unusable behind a loadbalancer

    A no permission page doesn't give a 503, because that would be an inappropriate response code. No permission gives a 403 "Forbidden" or 401 "Unauthorized" response. It's a bit of a strawman argument. We still 100% stand by the fact that 503 is correct. The "service" is your forum and there are...

    Awaiting feedback Return HTTP 503 causes XenForo to be virtually unusable behind a loadbalancer

    It’s the appropriate response code because it means “Service unavailable”. Your load balancer would need to be configured somehow to accept it.

    MG 2.1 What are these numbers counting?

    Run the Category rebuild under Tools > Rebuild caches. The counts should reflect the number of items in the category.

    Not a bug Login as User Errors

    That sounds like you are using a user to enable you to log in as different users. This isn't functionality within the software so you will need to speak to the add-on author for support.

    XFMG: is it an internally designed part of XF?

    Buy XenForo® now! It's an official XenForo product, developed by XenForo Ltd.

    Not a bug Smilies or Smileys?

    I don't think we'll be reaching an agreement here, so all I can recommend is that you change it on your own installation if you feel that the word "Smiley" and "Smileys" is more appropriate. There's little point in discussing it further as I'm sure we all have better uses for our time :)

    mod_rewrites rules conflicting for subfolder

    We aren't able to provide support for your Node.js app. As above, the default .htaccess should not affect anything (and in my testing with PHP, HTML or other applications entirely, doesn't).

    Not a bug Smilies or Smileys?

    With all due respect, we're not trying to teach you English. This is just, in our interpretation, the correct plural. Though I need to add that I slightly misspoke earlier. We do not recognise "Smiley" to be the singular of "Smilies". We don't actually use the word "Smiley" anywhere in the...

    Not a bug Smilies or Smileys?

    "Misleading". Hmm. I'm not sure about that. I agree that the spelling is debatable, but in English, there's quite a lot of precedent for the plural of smiley (as a noun) to be smilies. What is the plural of Berry? Berries, not Berrys. The plural of Possibility is Possibilities, not...

    What do I do?

    Threads you have started - if they are deleted, it deletes all posts within. That's a loss of potentially valuable content to the forum, to the users who posted them, to finding the site through Google. Posts you have created - if they disappear, there will be holes in the discussion which...

    What do I do?

    That's fine but you posted it in XenForo Questions & Support which isn't really an appropriate place as it's not related to XenForo or something we can provide support with. FWIW our policy here is generally the same as Jon mentions. We're not going to delete content that does not contain any...

    mod_rewrites rules conflicting for subfolder

    We don't have any official support advice for this, so you would be better working towards a solution with cPanel or a server/hosting admin. The default .htaccess doesn't by default affect sub-directories being accessible so something else must be at play.
