Missed the 3.0 release? Check out the upgrade & release notes here.
Hi everyone! The team has been hard at work over the last month fixing bugs and security holes and even squeezing in a new feature. There should be no breaking changes in this release so it should be a very straightforward update.
- Vanilla 3.x requires PHP 7.1 which is a change from earlier versions. We strongly recommend upgrading to PHP 7.3 as soon as possible. Many hosting plans allow a seamless transition via their control panel.
- Follow the normal upgrade process, including running /utility/update.
- Follow additional specific upgrade instructions.
- Test your plugin & theme compatibility in a safe place before upgrading your production forum.

Hi, thx! the download link target s/b:
Is there release notes of the "new features" somewhere? Thx again!
Looks like you caught the post before I got through with my edits! Anyways I've updated the post to try and be a little bit more clear. There is one new feature and load of bug fixes. That would be the much improved spam/moderation queue.
It's the type of thing that is likely most noticed on larger sites, but is a big improvement regardless.
For anyone unfamiliar with the previous experience it:
I'm noticing that within first install that the warning for external links is actually broke. Trying to look at forum software to replace "Simple Machines" and realized this was a cool alternative, but is broken in the spot that was a huge selling point for us.
Wont lie, really digging this forum software. :)
Smooth upgrade but embed / insert media button in the rich editor stays greyed out and not working (notice it's doing the same thing here.
Other than that, good update.🙂
Are you able to offer any additional reproduction steps?
It seems to be working on my end.
@techthenoob Unfortunately external link detection is not currently compatible with the Rich Editor. The feature is slated to be done this year though, so maybe by 3.2 or 3.3.
The issue is here.
In the meantime if you require this functionality, you will have to use our older Advanced Editor. It is pre-installed so you will just need to enable the plugin in your dashboard and select one it's formats in the posting page (BBCode, Markdown, or WYSIWYG).
Link of Rich quotes does not work
I just clicked a quote box on my forum expecting to be taken to the original post and thread - it did not happen.
I facepalmed myself - need to click on the date ofc - tried again - failed again
Clicking user name or date in the top red square gives links/sends me to respectively:
as intended and expected
Using the same in the rich quote / lower red square send me to:
Not what I expected and can hardly believe is intended?
Bug or functionality just not added yet?
my bad, may have been caching, but it is working normally. Carry on! 😁
Update it easily.. Thanks for fixing SEARCH Rich Post formatting issue 🙏
Aware of the issue. There will be a new rich quite in the next release. It’s already fixed on master.
I just updated from 2.8.3 to 3.0.2 to 3.1. Utility/update said successful for both. When I go to the Dashboard of the site the version still shows up as 2.8.3??
Anybody else seeing this issue or does everyone appear as 3.1?
Do a /utility/structure aswell
Disregard my last comment. I restored site to 283 and upgraded to 284. Then proceeded to update to 3.1 and now seems good. Thanks for all the work fellas!
I have the same problems with the rich editor, after four days using it in my forum, many users presented the same problem especially from mobile devices, especially when editing the posts.
So after changing to wysiwyg editor from rich editor left over drafts (from before the switch) are still tagged with rich editor format, so users were reporting problems with not being able to post new comments if they had a draft saved even AFTER I switched to wysiwyg editor. I was able to fix issue by deleting all draft records in the GDN_Drafts table. Probably could also fix by changing each record from Rich to Wysiwyg format without having to delete all drafts.
Here's screen cap of console log when using rich editor from Mobile site.. used Chrome device mode (Pixel 2) to simulate with mobile device. Hope this helps.. let me know if any other info I could provide to help...
EDIT: Looks like screen cap may be unreadable.. attaching log as txt file as well.
The error is a hint that your mobile format is Wysiwyg, but if you want to use the rich editor on mobile it must be set to "Rich"
