    Linksysinfo has been updated to xenForo 1.5.15. This release fixes a number of bugs and issues that were found since the previous release. As this is a maintenance release, the vast majority of the focus was an increase in stability.

    Some of the changes in this release include:
    • Add support for PHP 7.2.
    • Add beta support for importing from phpBB 3.2 and IPB 4.2.
    • Update our Facebook API calls to use version 2.10.
    • Fix an issue where email change notices would not be sent as expected when changing your email address.
    • When loading news feed entries via Ajax, ensure that additional CSS and JS is loaded correctly.
    • When hard deleting a profile post comment, ensure that the related deletion log and moderation queue records are removed as well.
    • When banning a user with the spam cleaner, also remove their avatar.
    • Prevent an error related to displaying likes if the like users cache is not populated correctly.
    • Properly handle redirects in the HTTP client where the redirect target is just a query string.
    • Include the page number in the <title> tag on the tag view pages.

    • Fixes and improved compatibility in the IPB importer.
    • Adjust the user upgrade expiration delay to only apply to recurring subscriptions and give a larger grace period to handle larger delays from PayPal.

    • Limit "cookie login" IP logging to new IPs or an IP that hasn't been seen in 6 hours to reduce the number of unnecessary records.
    • Limit the number of users matched by the admin quick search to avoid memory issues.
    • Improved compatibility with mixed TLS modes when using a proxy server to serve untrusted HTTP requests.
    • When permanently banning a user, automatically move them out of awaiting approval.
    • Add noindex/nofollow to some pages/links that have little value in search engines.
    • Use standard username styling in the spam cleaner IP check output.
    • Ensure hours/minutes inputs display in the proper order in RTL.
