    XF 2.1 Rebuild stats cache from 1967?

    I ran rebuild daily statistics and was startled that the progress message was reporting that it was working on 1967 data. It was into the 1990's before I thought to do a screen capture. Our original phpBB was installed in 2002.

    Manage promoted users

    Is there some reason not to have the ability to remove a user from one user group and put them into another via a usergroup promotion? When my donors have given enough to become sponsors, I do not want to show both badges.

    XF 2.1 Collapse sticky threads is not persistent

    Many of our users keep the sticky threads collapsed at the top of the forum list.. In xF1.5 the sticky stayed collapsed unless new content was added to the sticky thread group. Is there a setting that will restore that behavior? I have not been able to find such a setting.

    XF 2.1 Toggle bbCode should reset on post or cancel

    If the toggle bbCode is turned to text mode, the editor remains in text mode for that user. The behavior in xF1.5 was to clear the text edit state and our users find this behavior very confusing. I cannot find a control to change this behavior.

    Our XF1.5 system which we just upgraded had the feature that a link to the users Admin cp data was available in the popup of user information in the postbit and various other locations. I cannot seem to find the option or an addon that addresses this feature. Am I just not looking hard enough?

    I have been suffering ever since we moved from vBulletin with lost attachments by some of my most productive users. Now that we have 2.1 installed, I see that the attachment browser provides the archival record of all their attachments and may even be complete. Is there some way I have not...

    I have been directed to match a top navigation structure on a system that includes XenForo, WP and iMIS RiSE pages. After a bit of head scratching I hacked the PAGE CONTAINER template and added the links in the top navigation bar. When the screen goes to small size, the top nav moves to the...
