The navbar links are broken because of breaking changes in the Prosilver theme for phpBB 3.3, the FreeCAD and FreeCAD-Dark themes are based on this so they will need to be updated with a proper solution. For now I have deployed a hacky fix for the header and footer. Someone also mentioned that freecadweb.org/manual was broken, so I fixed that as well as freecadweb.org/api.

One of the benefits of completing this migration is that the forum is now available via HTTP/2 which should mean a big speedup as mentioned, although since things have been extra slow the last few days it might be tough to get a true gauge for how much faster things are without doing actual measurement.

I have the same issue. I only see images from this week.

Thanks for working on it.

Before the update they were in Italian.
The forms continue to be in English only.
I noticed a notable increase in speed (almost immediate page change and login).
Firefox browser version 88.0.1 (64 bit)
Thanks for the great work of improvement !!!
Thank you. I just made a change, is this problem fixed for you now?

Italian works now, and so does German and others I tried.
However, old images are still missing, see e.g. the Bug submission guidelines, which start with an image, or this post: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=58426 where the images are missing, while the attached FreeCAD file is available.

The forum is basically back to normal and faster...but, why am I prompted that I've exceeded login attempts and asked for the secret handshake every time I login???

The obvious reason is that kkremitzki or a mod/admin hates you. :mrgreen: :twisted:
