Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Are emojis disabled on purpose? That always frustrated me about the old theme, and it seems it hasn't changed with the new theme.

Shocked 
Disabled?  Huh

Why use a picture when you can just as easily express yourself with a twenty syllable German word?

I'm talking about unicode emojis, not the limited built-in forum smilies. You can insert them into the editor, but they display as question marks after posting.

Ahhh ... Unicode.  Not disabled on purpose, but MyBB doesn't have full Unicode support out of the box.  Customization would be required.

Ya that looks like it could be tough to do to be honest.

Curiously, when you open an internally-hosted file by itself, you DO get the logo icon:

Most likely the new theme explicitly specifies the favicon. The attachments don't, so they get the old favicon, which is in the default location.

That's exactly the case. It's on my list of things to look into. It's the start of a new semester for us high school teachers, so old exams and report cards and new semester start up means WRC fixes get put on the back burner. Hang in there everyone, I haven't forgotten.

Just compiling my list of things that need fixed and changed with this theme.

I think this seems to work well, so I'm thinking I'll go ahead and buy the full version. Before I do, any other issues I should be aware of?

Something has broken the new twitter embedding.

Weird.  I'll look into it.

Does anyone else have issues seeing the text on the menu options at the top of the site?  Home, About, Forums, What's new, etc
