Greetings TP Staff and Friends,

I upgraded to SMF 2.1.1 yesterday and began migrating everything over to the upgraded site. Aside from a few coding changes I discovered under SMF 2.1.1, the migration went fairly smoothly. I was relieved that TP still worked correctly under the new 2.1 SMF! I LOVE TP!

I did notice one thing I wanted to report in case you were unaware of it. I haven't isolated the cause but know how to recreate it on my forum.

I have TP Shout turned on and have it place in the top block of my TP forum. I don't use the  scrolling shout feature because it scrolls a little too fast for my liking, even when set to it's lowest scrolling speed.

Today I enabled the scrolling feature of TP Shout to test the speed again and immediately noticed that when I enabled it, the blocks I have in the Front panel of the portal are all pushed down to align themselves under the Left and Right panels. This leaves a big blank hole between the Upper panel and the Front panel because the side panels extend much further down (see attached image). If I disable the scrolling feature of the shoutbox, the blocks in the Front panel return to their correct place sandwiched between the Left and Right panels and directly below the Upper panel.

I don't know if it's just my site or something to do with the SMF 2.1.1 theme layout now, but I wanted to report it in case it's something you deem that needs to be addressed in a future update to TP.

Have a great week!


I can confirm this. Only happens on the frontpage. Seems there is a closing div missing somewhere...

And I found the problem and the fix.

Will be fixed in 2.2.2 version...
