Changelog 2018-09-02
[NEW] Inline display of attached PDF documents. Your forum must allow .pdf file attachments (Control Panel / Features / Attachments: Allowed Attachment File Extensions).
[NEW] Emailing members from the control panel has been updated with several new options:
1/ Each section is now described in full.
2/ The forum email address is now displayed, since it will be the return email add for your mailings.
3/ A notice is displayed regarding users who have chosen not to receive admin emails.
4/ Added an option for insertion of HTML line breaks (<br>) for new lines. This is useful for when you are sending pure text, vs sending something you've created in a third-party HTML editor.
5/ "BCC: Send Email As" is now pre-filled with the forum email address, and is customizable.
6/ "Send Emails One At A Time" is now set as default. This can lighten the load on your host's Email servers when sending out mass mailings, though for strongly advised to use a full-blown email manager (such as "phpList Email List Manager") for managing your websites news letters.
7a/ You can now send out a Test Email of your mailer before you mass email it. This is useful for previewing what your message would look like in your own email program before sending it to your members. The address you enter does not need to belong to a member within the forum database.
7b/ If you link directly to this page without using the member search, your can use the Test Email feature to send emails to non-members using your default forum Mailer Templates.
7c/ This feature is also useful for testing your forum email settings to any email address.

[UPDATE] Updated the URL and PATH language strings to be more specific with regards to "absolute" vs "relative"
[UPDATE] Updated all example urls from "http" to "https" in an attempt to push a recommendation towards using secure connections.
[UPDATE] Subscription invoicing system in the control panel has been updated to improve usability. Columns have been rearranged to match the ordering used in other areas of the subscription system. The member's email addresses are now displayed with their member name. Searching for subscriptions by Display Name is no longer case sensitive, and allows the use of wildcard. Can now search for transactions by registration email address.
[UPDATE] StopForumSpam Lookup & Reporting in the Control Panel now opens in the same page as the user you are editing. This should help prevent mistakes of reporting a wrong user when you have multiple member-editor tabs open at the same time.
[UPDATE] Updated Post Icon selection display for improved mobile friendliness.
[UPDATE] Updated Member Avatar image and Initial display on Post list pages.
[UPDATE] Updated language mentions of BBCode language from "[image]" to instead use the "[img]" term. This is purely aesthetic. Both uses of the BBCode are still valid.
[UPDATE] Added basic header information to the Email template.
[UPDATE] Updated Font Awesome library from 5.0.9 to version 5.3.1
[UPDATE] Updated PHPMailer library from 5.2.25 to version 5.2.26
[UPDATE] Updated Smarty library from 3.1.31 to version 3.1.32
[UPDATE] Updated Autosize asset from 4.0.1 to version 4.0.2
[UPDATE] Updated Dropzone asset from 5.4.0 to version 5.5.0

[FIX] Fixed Gallery List page to display lead image to fit 100% of long edge of the image, rather than cropped to center.
[FIX] Fixed Avatar display on Post list pages to be Internet Explorer 11 compatible.
[FIX] Fixed a minor HTML validation error within the Email templates.
