Wish I could help, but have no knowledge about these things.

All of the content is still there, just looks different. I've created a thread in the editorium to address any lingering issues with the upgrade: thread/20067/Mediawiki-upgrade/

I was talking mostly about the look. I'm a nostalgic haha.
Thanks for the link. :)

I'm still having issues with needing to constantly re-login (and having to copypaste my posts so I don't lose them!) with the Forums. I'm using the regular Evageeks Wide banner so I'm pretty lost on what the problem is? :headscratch:

Are you using https? Did this change when we enabled CloudFlare a couple of months ago (after the DDDoD attacks)? Do you have any restrictive settings for cookies?

HTTPS always, I don't see any odd settings regarding Cookies and I believe this might've begun after the Cloudflare situation happened, yes. (Thanks so much for looking into this! :asuka_thumbsup: )

Edit: And strangely enough, this post went through as it "normally" should, I'm still left signed in...

Try using another browser - if that doesn't display the problem we know where to look (and you have a workaround pro tem).

I have the same problem - though it appears very erratically Sometimes I have to relogin after every click, sometimes not at all. I found that it helps if I check the Remember Me box. Also using https and no banner rotation. I use Safari as my Web-browser.

Me as well. It comes and goes. Clicking remember me does actually help.

OK, CloudFlare sets its own cache expiry time, which might be quite short, and I think this is the problem (the much faster rotation of the headers also suggests that). However, it will honour settings explicitly made in the origin server. I now need to see whether I can find that setting for the forum and modify it, either overall, or for the items concerned with login. This may take me a little while, as I am quite busy at the moment.

EDIT:
Hmm. My login cookies have the correct 1 year expiration already set.

Those of you having trouble, it would be helpfull if you could clear out all cookies relating to evageeks.org from your browser; this will force you to log in again, but the newly downloaded cookies may work better than the cleared out ones. Please try it and let me know. I have found a way to force everyone to have to login and get new cookies, but it would be more friendly not to do that unless I have to.
