Changelog 2020-01-01
This snapshot contains feature and maintenance items

[NEW] A Post Share drop-down menu has been added to each post. This menu currently includes 1/ "Copy post link to clipboard" when clicked or tapped on, "Email Post", and "Report Post." Additional post sharing options will be added in a future version of UBB.threads. Additional sharing has been added for Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. They are configurable through the Control Panel > General > Social/Sharing Settings section.
[NEW] CP: Top/Breadcrumb bar is now sticky to the top.
[NEW] CP: Breadcrumbs presentation has been updated to include a link to your forum and link to your main site.
[NEW] CP: Member Editor now displays additional information of stored Member IP addresses. Using the GEO-IP lookup API, the member's country and continent are displayed in addition to the their ISP and its general location, and if their connection type was mobile or broadband.
[NEW] CP: Post Likes Settings have been added (Control Panel > General), ie; Enable/Disable, Display Total and Member Names, How Many Names To Display, Allow Self-Likes, Display Only Active Members on Summary, Max Likes Per 24hrs. The defaults for each configuration item are also shown.
[NEW] CP: Content Rebuilder now also rebuilds Post Like Counts for when you want all user like counts to reflect their current number of likes, and not how many they have ever liked. This is relevant for when liked posts are deleted/purged.
[NEW] CP: New Portal Islands are available, "Top Likes" and "Top Likes (30 Days)."
[NEW] CP: New Portal setting, "Total Members To Show In Top Likes."
[NEW] Post Likes are removed when a member is deleted.
[NEW] New Member Registration emails now display additional information of stored Member IP addresses. Using the GEO-IP lookup API, the member's country and continent are displayed in addition to the their ISP and its general location, and if their connection type was mobile or broadband.

[UPDATE] Post Buttons for "Email Post" and "Report Post" have been moved to the Post Share drop-down menu. This creates addition space for the "Like" button and improves display on thin displays, such as smaller smart phones in portrait layout.
[UPDATE] "Search Engine Agents" is now "Robots (Crawlers)." The updated terminology also helps to cover web robots used for marketing, webpage screenshots, site monitors, feed generators, link checkers, web scrapers, misc tools, page speed tests, and vulnerability/virus checkers, in addition to the expected search engines.
[UPDATE] CP: "Enable Spider-friendly URLs" is now "Enable Friendly URLs" because this function generates URLs that are easy to read and include words that describe the content of the webpage, which is useful to readers beyond web spiders.
[UPDATE] CP: General Settings now displays relevant general forum information together. Items were moved from the Primary Settings page to here.
[UPDATE] CP: Cache Manager will now also 1/ update post view counters, 2/ purge pointers to moved topics that have expired, 3/ purge inactive users from who's online table, and 4/ purge expired bans.
[UPDATE] Updated FontAwesome library from 5.11.2 to version 5.12.0.
[UPDATE] Updated Smarty library from 3.1.33 to version 3.1.34
[UPDATE] Updated TinyMCE from 5.0.16 to version 5.1.5.
[UPDATE] Cleanup of several language strings, cache builders, templates, and CSS files.

[FIX] Fixed New Private Message indicator flashing when there were no new private messages to read.
[FIX] User posts/messages and subjects now have whitespaces (spaces, tabs, extra lines) stripped from their beginning and end.
[FIX] Additional (undesirable) trailing line breaks are now removed from post quotes, spoilers, lists, etc. Optionally; rebuild your Posts, Signatures, and Private Messages with the Content Rebuilder, to update your older posts.
[FIX] Many forum generated URLs have been updated to correctly use Friendly URLs, when enabled.
[FIX] CP: Dashboard fixes to correct the display of long server information items.
[FIX] Several minor PHP 7.1+ and MySQL 5.7+ code fixes.
