OK guys it's done!
As you can see I have substantially restored the layout customization including the ads (sorry they are a necessary evil.)
I have checked and adjusted some of the obvious features and I activated 'captcha' for registration.
I also activated the 'portal', which is a new feature and I put some of the default features into it. Your admins will likely want to add some things to it as we all learn how to use it.
I set some conservative limits on file/image sizes. For the moment please keep them conservative but don't hesitate to make them smaller if you think it's getting out of control.
Documentation is available at:http://www.ubbcentral.com/doc_admin.php
The Admins should bookmark that url and check it before trying to activate anything new. On that note, please go carefully when activating new features. We want to get the most out of the new system but we don't want to overload it with stuff.
OK I am going from here to turn the system back on. I know it was a long time coming so I thank you all for your patience and your support.
I hope you enjoy the new software.
