    KNOWN ISSUES as of 12/3 (we're working on these!):
    1. Some threads/posts may be missing. We imported missing threads, some first posts missing still.
    2. Need to launch new XDA app asap. All current apps are broken like Tapatalk and XDA app. Use the browser instead for now plz (update: 12/7-8/20 target launch)
    3. In-thread search not working (update: 12/4/20 should be fixed)
    4. More stuff (we're reading every post!)
    ======================

    For login issues... use the "Forgot password" to reset your password. If you do not know your email address or it is no longer active, we will work on a way of getting access restored.

    If Google login does not work, you can reset your password and reassociate (called "Connect Account") your Google account to allow login.

    ======================

    We're excited to welcome you to the new version of the XDA Forums, which is now based on XenForo software instead of vBulletin. If you're not familiar, XenForo is a modern forum platform with a focus on speed, sharing, and overall fluidity. TLDR: we long ago outgrew vBulletin and we wanted to make a huge upgrade.

    Things are different! We know it will take some time for everyone to adjust to the new forums, and we ask for your patience as we work out bugs and issues to make the XDA 2021 forums as familiar as possible. One fun thing to try: change templates in the bottom left corner. We have a few to choose from and might add more. Whether you like a dark or light look, or if you want to see classic XDA colors from a decade ago ;), we have you covered.

    Use this thread to report bugs or ask questions. Our partner firm, Audentio, which designed the forums, might respond on our behalf within this thread.

    Thank you for your continued support of XDA, and we hope you enjoy XDA 2021! ✌

    Updated lists moved to XDA XenForo 2.2 Upgrade thread here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/xenforo-2-2-upgrade-post-bugs-issues-and-comments-here.4245677


    Known Bugs/Regressions:
    1. Some posts (former DevDB OPs, at least) can't be edited unless user disables the WYSIWYG editor and uses BBCODE instead. Fixed 12/09 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-115#post-84076621
    2. All users have enforced signature length and link limits, which should be higher/removed, at least for advanced forum users. Fixed 12/20 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-135#post-84140273 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-135#post-84141915
    3. Advanced forum user max title length is too short, truncating them (e.g. "Senior Recognized Developer / Recognized Contribut").
    4. Long forum names are truncated (e.g. "Android Software and Hacking General [Developers O").
    5. Thanks/Likes counts are reduced for most users, sometimes dramatically, seemingly from Aug 29 - Dec 2; possibly related to (7).
    6. Various old forum emojis aren't mapped to new unicode ones, and ones in old posts that do exist (e.g. :cowboy:) don't display.
    7. Some users have reported their OPs and/or attachments reverting to older versions; possibly related to (1). Fixed 12/09 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-115#post-84076621
    8. Broken redirects from old links for many threads/posts.
    9. Disabling Alert in Preferences forces Mobile App Push enabled, one should be able to disable both.
    10. Users who were Senior Members are now only Members, as though the threshold is different. Fixed 12/09 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-115#post-84076615
    11. "Unfurl"ed URL links to posts sometimes show a preview of the OP instead of the correct post (e.g. [URL unfurl="true"]https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/post-84073623[/URL]
      ==
      )
    12. Colored/underlined user names to denote advanced forum users (e.g. Recognized Contributors).
    13. Posts containing only quotes and no new text should be disallowed again.
    14. Ability to subscribe to an entire forum is missing for some forums.
    15. XDA Wiki pages are missing.
    16. CAPTCHA from editing posts triggers an Oops error; disabling the WYSIWYG editor as in (1) apparently works around it some of the time. Fixed 01/12 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-144#post-84276155
    17. Attachment file extensions need to be restored (e.g. jar missing). Fixed 12/15 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-130#post-84113793
    18. [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] functionality is broken and pics lost.
    19. Attachments per post are limited to 10, far lower than the former site. Fixed 12/20 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-135#post-84141915
    20. Shell scripts are detected and rejected as attachments, even if renamed as .txt files.
    21. Attempting to enable/disable the WYSIWYG editor while editing certain posts triggers an Oops error; possibly related to (16). Fixed 01/14 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-145#post-84284035
    22. Former DevDB downloads are inaccessible. Fixed 02/19 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-145#post-84284015 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/devdb-archives.4226791/#post-84521543
    23. Search "this category" option never shows any results when used.
    24. Recognized Developers can't moderate their own threads anymore.
    25. Recognized Developer application process is gone. Addressed 01/19 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/status-of-recognized-developer-program.4220403
    26. Some posts have lost their attachments in the migration. Addressed 02/26 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/page-152#post-84563135

    I know you guys are probably still working out the bugs, but so far the forum is super slow. It take 20 to 30 seconds to load a page. And yes, my Internet works fine with all other sites at the same time so I know it's not my computer, browser or Internet connection.

    Also, for some reason, I can't load page 2 of threads and it seems like some recent posts were not migrated over?
     
    Where is the Search Thread box? I used it all the time! Edit: When using the top of page Search box here is a drop-down menu option to search this thread but it's no working. Edit 2: It has been fixed!

    How can you add a title to a post since Advanced is gone?

    No option to not include your signature in some posts & in others not like in Advanced before the migration?

    Most Thanked posts in the thread (liked) in the right sidebar is gone?

    Hopefully the site is still settling in after the migration. I know this can take time. Looking forward to continue here on the new platform and hope all the great experiences of old times remain the same and new ones are added.
    I would second the earlier comment about the site being slow but again i probably answered my own question in the first sentence i typed.
     
    This is dreadfully slow, 20-30+ seconds to load a single page.

    Trying to go to the *last* page of a thread causes it to continuously go to the first page of the thread, and "jump to new" is even more broken, listing "recent" posts but labeling each one as "#1" and then mixing in "first page" posts as well.

    Evident for me on this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...oid-auto-use-torque-with-androidauto.3657805/

    You should try the UI before asking, on top right of OP you will see few dots, click that to expand menu and tap edit thread and then you will be able to edit the title. I am finding my way around too.
