Hello all,

I am working on upgrading a site that has been way behind on 1.8 patches. I just did a test upgrade from 1.8.7 > 1.8.24, and I have two main errors that I haven't been able to figure out the fix for. You can see the test site here: https://realmsbeyond.dreamhosters.com/forums/index.php

  1. When clicking the "Login" button on the home forum page, a popup is supposed to show in the middle of the screen for quick login. However, the popup is loading *completely below* the visible screen, and the modal is blocking any other clicks from doing anything. The full login option at https://realmsbeyond.dreamhosters.com/fo...tion=login works as expected. How do I force that popup back where it belongs?
  2. When clicking the "New Topics" or the "Today's Topics" search buttons at the very top of the page, I get a "Sorry, but no results were returned using the query information you provided." message. The "Search" button works as expected. Did something change in search.php that would have nuked those from working like they used to?

I know this is a large span of patches that could contain these changes. Thanks for any help in advance.

Not sure about your search issues, but the login modal sounds like this problem:

Thanks! That successfully did the trick.

My only other problem that I have found is related to the New Reply functionality. The main edit body is all messed up from before, it only shows text in a small portion of the full box, and it auto-adds HTML that has never been added before. What changes do I need to look out for there?

I’ll add pictures showing what I mean momentarily.

Both are brand new "New Reply"s that I have not manually added any text to.

Since the editor is involved, this thread might have some insights:

Earlier this year, we upgraded from 1806 to current (at the time 1822).  You seemed to have missed several pitfalls we experienced, but it really comes down to your theme and plugins.  And how aggressive you are reverting templates.  Pay careful attention to the diff reports!

cheers...

Thanks nixer55! For future readers, reverting the code buttons template is what fixed the last issue for us.
