WebFlake 4.0.5

Released 07/09/2018

Key Changes

  • Inactivity Notice will no longer display to banned users.
  • In an effort to curb the spam, we've placed a few more restrictions on Inactive Members. Users have been responding to announcements with "cool site", "great update", "WebFlake is the best", etc. While such comments are flattering, they're spam. Similar spam occurred in Tutorials with "thanks", "this works", etc.
    • New Threads: now restricted to Off-topic Lounge, Member Introductions, and the Tutorials/Support areas for IPS, XenForo, and WordPress.
    • Replies: now restricted to Off-topic Lounge, Member Introductions, and the Support areas for IPS, XenForo, and WordPress.
  • Moved the footer ad inside the main wrapper.
  • Advertisements now display for Elite and Legendary members.
  • Footer ad now correctly displays for appropriate groups.
    • Note: the only groups that are not exposed to ads are Administrators, Senior Mods, Mods, Junior Mods, +Blizzard, Snow, and Frost. We're aware that many users have AdBlock or similar services installed on their browsers and are exploring our options for combating this. Advertisements are one of our two sources for site funding (the other being donations). Please consider disabling your ad-blocking services for WebFlake.

Additional Information

We've become aware of users exploiting the current issues with our Discord integration by changing their names and/or disassociating their Discord account from the site. If you are caught, you will be banned from our Discord server indefinitely, no questions asked.

Known issues:

  • Discord ban syncing is not working as intended.
  • Some other Discord Integration features are malfunctioning (role sync and file feed is working).
  • When deleting/hiding content, you'll see two confirmation boxes (this is a bug with the IPS software).
  • Expanded search overlaps secondary navbar (z-index issue).

There may be additional bugs that we have yet to discover after upgrading. Please report any bugs you encounter on our Bug Tracker.
