So I guess you can manually change the color to white, if you need/want it. That's something for now, anyway :)

It works for me. Are you typing the color tag as [ color=#91FFFF ] without the spaces?

Tricky. I thought you had edited out your message. That gives me an idea. :)

Hello Forum Members,

Thank you for your patience as I restore features.

I avoided upgrading the forum for some time, because some of the features we use are add-ons which are no longer supported.  However, there were critical security fixes needed, and when the forum crashed, I decided it was time to do it. Hence, I have had to manually reinstall some of the features that are no longer supported, and this is a tedious process, since I am not an expert in PHP code.

At present:

Fixed:
- faith / jurisdiction info
- spellchecker background
- Advanced Recent Posts list
- Users Logged In Today

- Other misc. features

To fix:

- no font ccolor bar
- some people complained about saving drafts and "new replies to your posts"
- no "similar threads" box

Will never be fixed or restored:
- Chat

Feel free to add any additional features I may have missed in a reply in this thread.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

That was an issue even before the crash though, as I remember seeing that and reporting it a year or more ago (not on that particular thread)... not that I'm complaining, it's not a huge issue, but I guess good that you are reporting it :angel:

In trying to modify a post, I noticed that if I tried to add a sentence or modify a sentence within the body of my text, the modification would not take even though I would get the usual edit byline.

Strangely, if I put a p.s. at the end of the message, then it would take.

This is the post where I experienced problems when I attempted to modify it.

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,18865.msg880292.html#msg880292
Note how the P.S. is at the bottom. When I tried to put that P.S. in the middle of the post, just under my text, but above the two quotes, it did not take.
