        New forum upgrade has been completed, here are the release notes:

        Answered Topics

        Topics can now be marked as "Answered." This is a special status applied to a specific post within the topic. The post that is marked as the Answer will be highlighted and show directly under the starting post in the topic. The ability to mark posts as the Answer in a topic is controlled by permissions. There are three different permissions to control this. Usergroup and Channel Permissions both support the "Can Set Answer" permission. Within Channel Permissions, there is also a "Can Set Answer on Own Topics" permission. The last permission is under Moderator Permissions to control which moderators can set answers. After upgrading, all of these permissions will be set to No. If you leave the permissions in this state, the feature will be disabled.

        The Channel Display module has been updated to allow users to filter by answered status.
        Photo Gallery


        The ability to manually re-order images uploaded in a photo gallery topic has been added to the system. This can be accomplished by drag and drop when editing the images during upload.
        Additional Issues
        • Resolved several filter issues with Blogs.
        • Users with custom HTML titles can update their settings without breaking their titles.
        • vB Messenger should load new messages quicker. However, the update rate will slow down with inactivity.
        • Tag searches are no longer case sensitive.
        • Users no longer need permission to post to create flag reports.
        • When uploading a new site logo in Site Builder, it can now be properly applied to all styles.
        • If the site is configured so that the user's birthday is optional, it is no longer required when updating the user settings.
        • Information from inline images should no longer appear in the meta description of a page.

        We will be testing and enabling the Answered Topics feature this week and next, and then post about it when it is ready for everyone to try!
