    Today, we are pleased to release XenForo 1.5.1. This release fixes a number of bugs and issues that were found since the release of 1.5.0. As this is a maintenance release, the vast majority of the focus was an increase in stability.

    Please note that we are now formally recommending that you upgrade to PHP 5.4 or newer. Our intention with XenForo 2.0 is to require PHP 5.4 or newer. If you are running PHP 5.3 or 5.2, you will receive a warning when installing or upgrading XenForo.

    Some of the bugs fixed in 1.5.1 include:
    • When loading more profile post comments, show the deleted placeholder for deleted comments instead of it being expanded by default.
    • When navigating to an anchor link, adjust the scroll position to account for the fixed height header.
    • Fix for a server error in certain situations relating to user mentions which are too long.
    • Fix for some tags incorrectly receiving a weighting of 8 in the tag cloud.
    • Fix for improper touch device detection on IE Mobile and Microsoft Edge browsers.
    • Adjust permission rebuilding actions to avoid timeouts when possible.
    • When copying posts from a thread, do not rebuild the discussion counters for the source thread.
    • Fix for an issue which may see a new user not receive notification of their Welcome message.
    • Fix a situation where an invalid character could be displayed when stripping BB code from content.
    • Fix for incorrect multi-column display in certain situations in Chrome.
    • Changed the Facebook media site code to display in Facebook video format rather than post format.
    • Fix for alerts about profile post comments generated before the upgrade to 1.5.0 displaying incorrectly.
    • Prevent an "array to string conversion" error when logging user changes for custom fields which have changed type.
    • Workaround for an issue with some versions of iOS which prevented the search input from being focused on the first tap.
    • Limit the amount of ignored users imported to 1000 to prevent data length issues.
    • Ensure that following and follower lists only display the "more" button when needed.
    See the Resolved Bug Reports forum for further information.

    The following templates have had changes:
    • alert_profile_post_comment_your_profile
    • bb_code.css
    • form.css
    • member_view.css
    • member_warnings.css
    • online_list
    • page_nav.css
    • pagenode.css
    • profile_post_comments
    • search_bar.css
    • xenforo.css
    Where necessary, the merge system within the "Outdated Templates" page should be used to integrate these changes.

    All customers with active licenses may now download the new version from the customer area.


    More Stable

    This release follows our principle that third-point (x.x.X) releases should always be more stable than the preceding version, so for the most part you will not find new features in this release. Major new features will be reserved for second point versions (x.X.x).

    Installation and Upgrade Instructions

    Full details for how to install and upgrade XenForo can be found in the XenForo Manual.
