The UBB.threads System Requirements Test script has been updated, the 20201025 release has the following changes:

Added: Added a new debug mode which will allow one to see what values the test script arrays contain.
Added: Added new configuration checks for v7.7.5 values (Pinterest, Like Locked Threads, etc.)
Added: Added the ability to submit your server and UBB.threads configuration values to the UBB.threads developers (UBBDev.com); this will allow us to troubleshoot your UBB.threads configuration or server configuration issues (note that all usernames and passwords are not sent with your payload; these values will display as they do within the Test Script as "[Scrubbed for Security]"; you can validate what values are sent by viewing the source of the test script on your webserver and scrolling down to the "<input type="hidden" name="payload" value="[h2]UBB.threads Configuration[/h2]" line).
Added: Added the HTML5 Valid badge, with updated coding for displaying the script URL on a target server.
Change: The MySQL/MySQLi check has been retooled to not display a warning when mysql_ commands are missing when the mysqli_ commands are present (mysqli_ commands are present in PHP5); the MySQL functions were removed from PHP in PHP7 in favor of the MySQLi functions.

TLDR; Debug Mode, New Configuration Checks, Can now submit configurations for support, HTML5 Badge, Don't display a mysql_ warning when mysqli_ is present.
